  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So, after the rear of my car fell off the jack… (don't ask!). The suspension was noticeably wonky - one wheelarch was a couple inches lower than the other. I replaced the springs, and it seems better but it's still not even - one side is still an inch or so higher than the other and I can hear a...

    Every time the wheels need to come of my 2011 120d M sport they have to hammer an 11mm socket over the locking nut to remove them as the tool supplied by BMW just shears off!. I now have a bag with no less than 8 broken tools in it, I have cured the problem by buying a set from Halfords and...

    My steering is odd. I need to steer slight left to go straight. If the wheel is straight level the car tracks right. I used to have a big steering and brake wobble from motorway speeds, but cured with new pagid discs and pads as I guessed this was warped discs. Tyres look good. No flat spots...

    Got my first BMW home last night, wouldn't restart, battery naff, wouldn't take charge so put new batt in this morning. Then went and filled up. Fuel gauge stayed low, with warning light on. Whilst driving it sometimes pops up to full, then back to empty again. Also OBC says "INPUT TIME"...
