The E90 gong sound is produced via the head unit. Only 09+ HUs have the software for the sound. The cluster also must have the code to send the gong trigger signal to the stereo.

I was in San Diego last week vacationing and looking at cars. Yes, there was not a spot of rust on them, but MOST cars over four years old there have major sun damage.

Nevermind... I figured it out after browsing through ISTA/D... The E46 is affected.

I'm Done With E46s... They Are Awful!

I've owned three now over the past 12 years. Every one of mine has developed rust around the quarter panels despite being rustproofed, garaged, and cleaned (in the wheel-wells) every weekend. Every...

A manual gearbox could not care less what base stock the oil comes from. The OEM Pentosin fluid has the best cold/hot viscosity for our synchronizers. Royal Purple is like water.

It's best to use the original Pentosin MTF-LT-2. If you're stuck on redline, do a 50:50 mix of MTL and D4. MTL is too thick and D4 is too thin.

That is the CD changer wiring harness. Your car does not support the AUX input. The changeover was in 06/2003.

Before you do anything, check your intake boot for tears. Even though the RPM gauge says that it is idling fine, a deviation of 50 will cause a low-pressure situation.

Honestly,

Pay a shop to do it right the first time. This involves cutting and welding. Just grinding it down may not solve the problem long-term... the rust molecules will be embedded in the metal.
