My Ride: 2002 330XI
New to Forums

Thought I would post a hello thread to say hello the community. I have a 2002 330Xi 5-speed that I have owned since 2006 with about 104000 miles on it.

It's pretty much stock except for the DICE integration for my iPhone.

I normally took it to the shop to get worked on but the last 6 months have started to do some of the work myself. After reading these forums and a lot of the DIY posted by the many members I have ventured into doing more DIY. I've found a lot of useful information in these forums that has helped immensely.

Here is a list of stuff done thus far:

- All 4 Window Regulators
- Clutch
- Passenger front Control Arm
- ECU Replacement (Had a bad module that was burning my driver side door locks. Indy wanted to replace the module but had them replace the entire ECU)
- Rear Shocks
- Front and Rear Brakes (Made the mistake of having indy turn the rotors instead of replacing. Never make that mistake again. Front rotors warped after about 3 weeks and ended up replacing)

- Complete Cooling System Overhaul (Water Pump, Thermostat, Upper & Lower Radiator Hoses, Belts, Expansion Tank)
- Alternator
- Spark Plugs
- Emergency Brake Issue where it was not ratcheting. It was the tab that was blocking it and the clip came loose. Still need to replace the entire assembly.


Will post a pic later.
