    My car is a 2010 E91 330d and I'm getting the message SOS Call system failure every time I put the key in and sometimes when I'm diving. However, yesterday I decided to test it.

    Hi everyone I developed a duff door lock actuator on the drivers side. I hadn't realised what a miserable experience it would be to replace it until I started - door glass out etc. Anyway, along the way I've noticed 2 problems: 1) Used to remotely open the soft top holding down unlock on the...

    I had a few issues with my diamond key a while back. It started having problems with the lock / unlock functions. The distance it unlocked the car from got shorter and shorter until it no longer worked. Then after about 1 month the key no longer started the car. It put the lights on the dash, it...

    The car is a late 2005 (december) 530i touring with 80,000 easy miles on it. Got a gearbox error message and took it to the dealer. At first they said "need a new box" (£4,000) but then thought "perhaps just the control unit will do it" (£500). It didn't. They have also changed the fluid. The...
  10. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    First post to the forum so bear with. I bought an 05 convertible with the roof not working on it, as I am fairly experienced with working on cars. However, I was just wondering if anyone could narrow down my search for the faulty part? Symptoms are: the roof works perfectly when the engine...

    Hi All, I've decided to turn my E46 325Ci SE into a track car and get into racing in the very close future. I would like to start by stripping down the car, throw out the unnecessary stuff, put it on a diet if possible, reinforce the subframe(s) and give it a decent but road legal "rage-cage"...

    The air con cooling system is working fine as the pipes leading to heater matrix and below car go very cold when air con switched on. However, inside the car, when air-con switched on, the temperature of air coming in barely drops. I'm told this could be due to one of the heater matrix flaps not...
