When your passenger door does not unlock with the remote, so you use the windows down feature and say: help yourself bitches.

you lock your car, and 30secs to 1 minute later you try to remember if u locked it or not, so you walk within range of your alarm and relock it.
So true

When your 13 year old 330,000 mile E46 spins a bearing in the lower block; instead of getting another vehicle you simply replace the engine lower block and crankshaft in your E46 with another E46 lower engine block and crankshaft and keep it moving...

Sorry to hear this, Zach...but glad to hear it too!

Just age you think or was there some proximate cause you know of?

That must've been a lot of fun!

What was it like 'spinning a bearing'? Was the car still running and just clunking around inside?

This is my favorite thread. Here we go, you know you're an E46 Fanatic when:

1) You know to ask Dmax, Solidjake, and E46Mango for all your maintenance needs

2) You know to ask SollyD, MarkM, and CollinsE90 about your romantic relationships dilemmas

3) You get annoyed when girls ask "wow, a bmw? what color?"

4) You felt the uncontrollable urge to remove your SAP

5) You find yourself on BMWfans.info going "huh, so that's how much my rear seat sound insulation weighs!"

6) You see a girl in the New Members sub-forum and think "fellas, please please don't mess up this one!"

7) You go to the dealership and request part #xx-xx-x-xxx-xxx

8) You only use BMW High Performance Synthetic Oil because you know the M52/M54 was designed to work with shear strains that fall between SAE 5w-30 and 5w-40

9) You miss Jeremy Clarkson's road test of the CSL on the Isle of Mann on YouTube. You don't care about the one from "Hot Metal"

10) People: You have a BMW? It bet it's fast!
Secretly to yourself: I have a M52tuB25, it couldn't out-drag a mobility scooter

11) You see a "Best CAI?" thread and think "This guy has no idea what he's in for"

12) These made you laugh

HOPE YOU ENOYED

When all of your friends that don't know **** call you a spoiled child. That always gets me. My e46 is my first car and people see BMW and make assumptions. I bet some of their cars are worth twice as much as mine.
