All due respect, the ZHP is unique to the US market. I believe Europe has a M Club Sport model (which yours might be) that we don't have in the US. They're similar but not exactly the same. For...

Update on my car: I had my vanos replaced at the dealer and there was no effect on the noise - it remained, and louder than ever. I took it back to a different dealer 2 months later. They installed a...

Wheel bearings usually make more of a whirling noise when they're failing. A grinding noise may be the differential. Is the noise more pronounced when turning?

It's not going to work. Your car takes 13 62 7 567 451. The early 325is take 13 62 1 432 356. They look similar but the internals are different. Sorry.

By application, your car should take LT 71141. All 2002 330is should use a ZF 5HP19 (A5S325Z) but sometimes an old transmission can sneak into production.

A GT1 works. In fact, it should better than anything else on the market (save for perhaps an autologic) because it's the one and only factory-supported diagniostic tool. You can get one too - they're...

The proper mix is approximately 50% distilled water, 50% BMW genuine coolant. The last time I did a refill I had to follow the drain procedure. I turned the heat and fan to max while filling. You may...

Technically, 1 qt. per 2K miles is just within BMW's specs. Like revshed said, how do the plugs look?

Does anyone know how to reinstall the little roof rack flaps on an E46 coupe? I'm talking about the flaps in the roof that you can pry back with a flat blade screwdriver to install a roof rack.

I've talked at length with some of the people producing the replacement vanos seals. As far as I know, the "zhp rattle" is not directly caused by failing seals. It's due more to a design flaw with...

Anyone with an E46 is not "poor." Actually, in the scheme of things, anyone with a computer isn't "poor." It's all relative. Sorry, I had to keep it real for a quick second.

Amazing garages.

There are no significant differences. The price increase is due to the taxes, import restrictions, tarrifs, etc. the manufacturer incurs when selling their goods (in this case M6s) in each market.

These days US reguations are more strict than just about any other market. I wonder if any mechanical modifications would actually need to be made? I suggest you contact a broaker in your area.
