2002 330Ci battery replacement experience

i've been there

I've been there for a M3 vs. Z show down and you are absolutely right, the M is faster, but with a good driver, it becomes fairly even. Except in straights, where no skill is required to pull away...

no chance

My best friend has a 350Z touring and I have a 330Ci. The Z is SO much faster. 0-60 it's a full half second or more. And it gets worse from there. The Z is an amazing car (except for the brakes). If...

hard driving

My light came on after a weekend at the Dragon. I looked and it was down a quart or so. I filled it up and it fixed the problem.

What's the Dragon, you ask?!

get both replaced

And take a close look at the other door. I'll bet it is starting to come loose as well. Get them to replace both at once. It's a known problem and they should do it without question.

TZ Blue D3,

I think I saw you today at around 5pm at the corner of Habersham and W. Paces Ferry. If that was you, you have a sweet car. I was in my grey 330Ci w/xenons.

I had a Borla on my old Porsche 944 and loved it. They have such a deep, smooth sound. Not sure what it would be like on a E46, though.

you have to clean them often

I've found that all of the wheel cleaners work about the same. I've never found one that you can truly just apply and spray off. You always need to wipe the wheel down. Your best bet is to get the...
