I think my amp is on the way out...

Driver side speakers crackle when I'm using the cd changer in the trunk, but not when I use the radio.

Just as I suspected, confirmed by BMW master tech to me that M3 suspension is fine and dandy, maybe a little more understeer at edge but totally fine, utterly safe and completely sensible. When told him that shitard online knowitnothings were criticizing he laughed and said he rarely sees anyone who is attempting to sound definitive on forum sites get it right, said they're just "looking for the attention they didn't get from mommy". LoL.

So, you know, they're not liars at Edge, I'm not a sucker, you know not what you speak of, and...


...you have been pwned

hard.

on so many levels.

(that was so so ghey how you did that for effect btw)

So go back to harassing people who like to mod their cars.

Douche.

Chill guy...your language makes you sound immature.

I see nothing wrong with putting in M3 shocks/springs, but it is a bit weird to buy used suspension parts. If they weren't used very long, its probably no problem. The only thing I would be concerned about is handling. I don't know how much stiffer the M3 suspension is, but any added rear stiffness will increase oversteer not understeer.

We've got a hero on our hands. Chill your nuts bro. And yes drinking shampoo and bodywash wont be the end of the world but its not the best.

You should put the correct suspension for the correct application. Seems like you making a monetary shortcut...maybe trade BMW for a bicycle.

Wait, so a mechanic that installed a blown out, used M3 suspension for you, says: understeer on edge is utterly safe, and completely sensible? Coming from a business called "Edge"?....nice...

He is also an expert on forums, and the knowledge base of the internet?

Truth is most mechanics hate the internet, because it keeps them in check, and steals business in the form of DIYs.

I get it, you like to go against the grain, and defy popular opinion, and otherwise common knowledge.

Good luck with that.

Please leave with that attitude.

Dont be so mean! Used parts are great for minor things like suspension and drivetrain. Im putin used rod bearings and rings in my m3 and i find wrecked cars and get great deals on used oil and filters. Hyuck hyuck sounds like you dont have the coin to own a bmw or just too cheap.

I don't consider suspension, or drive train to be minor things.
The issue isn't Hizzhinezz' maintenance practice, or his desire to "do what he wants" however, his attitude, and name calling is immature, inappropriate, and transparent.

Ran my 330Ci out of gas as I was pulling into the gas station. I guess when the miles say ZERO it really means zero. My Jeep had 2 gallons left at zero. I put 17.15 gallons into my E46 today hahaha.

Wow. The fuel tank capacity is 16.6 gallons I hear. What is the condition of your fuel pump? Consistently driving your car with low fuel and or running out of fuel will significantly shorten the life of the fuel pump.

+1

Surprised you didn't break the fuel level sender...your fuel level needle went back up when you filled it I assume?
