New E46 owner from California
 
Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and barely got my 2002 325i 4 door.
I am in love with the car. Hopefully it was a good investment. it only has 103k miles and I got it for $4k because the seller was really in NEED of $$.
Some of the clear on some areas of the car is starting to peel and the rear window regulators gave out so hopefully it's still turns out to a good deal.
So I plan to stick around this forum and hopefully get some tips on these kinda cars, so hopefully you guys can help me out.

Thanks

Here are some pics
(Nvm the oil, its not from my car lol)

Exhaust, coils, and wheels to start out with.

Thanks guys. I appreciate it.

Does anyone know how to set the time on the dash and radio on my E46. I read everywhere and it says you need to press the OBC button to change functions but I do not have the OBC button. Is this odd or even possible to do it without it?
Thank you.

Turn the right stalk gently to the right to increment, and left to decrement.
Do not use too much force!

Since yours always displays time, you basically skip the first step of "toggling the obc display to the time page" and simply advance the right stalk.

Welcome OP, you'll love the ride & You got a great deal! :clap:

Love my 02 also...

Just keep up the maintenance and it will take care of you for for a long time! (See sig)

Yeah I found out that either the stalk broke or it either came out of place, because when I turn it either direction it wont twist the opposite direction. If I pull a little it comes out of place and spins in a 360 motion. I'm going to have to take the instrument cluster out and check it out.
