The rod bearings were an issue on the 2001 and 2002 M3's, which is why there was a recall. Rod bearings on 2001 and 2002 cars that had the recall service done are not an issue, and neither are the...

I'm not sure that the word "gutless" is appropriate, as the maximum performance levels of the e46 M3 and the 2001 Corvette aren't very far apart. What the Corvette has in spades though is torque,...

It's possible that the cats in your old manifold were starting to go before the swap. That happened to mine at about 65,000 miles.

I had adjustable rear camber arms put on my M3. If you do it, make sure that you get a good 4 wheel alignment to make certain that camber and caster are properly set within spec on all 4 wheels.

I agree, but would add one caveat. If one coil pack is going, the others are likely not far behind. Replace all 6.

Absolutely NOT normal. The needle on the water temperature gauge shouldn't move right of the "normal" range (designated by the 2 lines on the face of the gauge) unless something is wrong.
