Anyone looking for DIY help?

I'm interested in helping other people with their DIYs who might be hesitant to try for the first time or need an extra hand or want me to do the all the work.

I have the majority of tools needed for most common DIYs and can bring rhino ramps/jack and stands if needed.

I live in Boonsboro, MD 21713.

As far as compensation, I'd like you to pay me what you think it was worth, I'm looking to do this because I really love working on e46s and learning about them in the process. I'm willing to travel ~60 miles. I can do weekdays and weekends.

I owned an e46 325ci for 6 years did all the maintenance and work myself. He is the for sale thread for the car I list all the maintenance I did and work.

So far on my M3 I've done the fuel filter, vanos filter and sealing plate, oil change, cdv delete, fixed passenger side window regulator clicking, installed angel eyes, cleaned MAF sensor, changed cabin and air filter & spark plugs.

Here is my journal:

PM, post or e-mail if you have questions!



2001 Topaz Blue 325Ci 64-120k miles SOLD
2003.5 Silver Gray M3 70k miles

Great Post man. Glad to see fellow fanatics always willing to help.

I plan on tackling Vanos seals next week. Too bad I'm a distance away from you in NJ.

Big ups on the post. I wish it would have been sooner though. I just dropped my 325ci off at the shop this morning to do valve cover gasket, vacuum line, oil line, spark plugs, oil filter housing, and possibly vanos. 3.5 hours would have been a bit of a drive but worth it for me to gain some knowledge from you. I will keep you in mind though if I need anything in the future.

I may need help installing springs on my E46 M3 in the future. If we were to go ahead I would get the cdv delete done too.

PM what you think is reasonable.. like I said this is future thinking and I would be helping you, I diy myself but have not done a spring install before niether do I have a spring compressor. I do not want to tackle this job myself and would feel comfortable doing this with someone who has done it a few times before.
