Currently in the middle of a trany swap, went down to the stealership and got the 5/reverse fix kit and detents for the zf Trans and am now pulling out the old one. One problem the guibo is bigger meaning my drive shaft won't fit, so I think the out put shaft on the getrag has the same splines as the zf and hopefully will allow me to swap out put shafts... Hopefully...

How exactly is a 330xi going to own anything other than a parking stall?

Because its street racey, and juvenile to some of us.

Hopefully you do what you do for you, and not our approval

E46f is rarely pleased.

Should have stopped at the keychains, and kept it off that heavy tank.

Deff for me, if I would of went for the approval of the forum I would have gone with "slow xi" I don't race at all nor have the intention to, I've got a daughter to worry about (priorities are in line)

It's a style thing not with actual intentions of racing, thnx for input non the less

Been doing alot of research today since im not deploying this week so Im doing the P/S rebuild myself for less then half the cost. All hoses, gaskets/O-Rings, check valve bolt, Res plus oil I have total of 340$ in parts not to shabby for what im estimating about 3-4hrs of work.
Replacing all the hoses really isn't all that hard if you buy the High pressure hoses removal tool which is definitely worth the cost.
Before all that rev'd the E90 in 5k range on spirited drive lol I know that aint to high. I baby her

Do you really need to exaggerate that you own a car that was made in Germany, is your ego that big?

Here is where you can get it, for shipping both ways and all that. 16$ aint really worth it.

I found this item linked at bimmerfest, Should work perfect based on member that posted that.
