My Ride: 323i e46 SOLD!
Took apart the ICV (thanks Jake for the vid). Also took off the throttle body and DISA. Cleaned them all including the MAF. Sealed up a tear I had in the lower intake boot with some gorilla glue, no more whistle. Put everything back together and she now idles and runs like a champ. Now waiting for my new lower intake boot to come in so I can really fix the problem. Also put some insulation around my CAI heat shield.

Replaced the Drivers side door lock actuator.

Now to fix that noise coming from the SAP. And replace my headliner that's falling down. And replace the rear dif. bushings. Oh and send my FOB's to Scott at GM5 to have fixed.

Why the @#$! did I buy this car?

Took it to Driver's Edge, in College Station, TX. My wife drove it, and I drove the 135. She let her instructor take the e46 around the track too, absolutely smoking the yellow group. It was awesome.

My Ride: 2005 BMW 325i
Rear Deck Rattle

Spent 5 hours getting rid of this horrible rattling noise when the music pumping low frequencies, stuffed my rear deck with Polyester and repainted it back to factory black color. In all, a very productive Sunday
