Hello again from north.

I am back from USA. I spent one week in NYC.
Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn etc. It was my best holiday so far.
Some pictures, check it out: https://aor.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Travel/New+York+8_2018/

Okay, lets talk more about this BMW
There was lot of searching for another good E46 325i/330i, but no.. most of the cars are so rusty and bad condition, no sense to buy.
I have to drive this car next winter.

Swiss clock failed
One evening i found out that drive shaft seal from rear diff was leaking.

Now it is repaired. First diff was removed.

- Drive shaft seals replaced with genuine parts
- Rear plate was removed and re-installed with sealant
- New diff oil (TEBOIL)
- New gearbox oil (TEBOIL)

Now it is fine, again..
I have to say gearbox oil replacement was important. Old oil was like black waste oil you drain from old truck engine. "lifetime oil no change".. yep.
Gear change is now pretty smooth. I dont know if you have teboil oils there, but those are basically -50% of castrol price. Also fully synthetic oils.

Little update

I removed right front fender, i took it for sandblasting.
I tought it has to be fixed in time before rust bubbles will appear in right side..
Inside part is sandblasted, and painted with tar epoxy protector.



Cleaned sill end plate with drill+wire brush. Today second layer of paint.
Tomorrow i will put body seamer for that seam. (sikaflex black).

Nice work! I too have done this job recently. Not the most fun, but quite rewarding knowing you caught the rust before it gets any worse. Keep us posted!

Good work. Paying attention to the details is the best for one car.

Waiting to see the swiss clock completed.

50 miles after last wash.
Normal highway and city driving 5 days.
I think we would be ok with less amount of salt.



No problem with washing, ceramic coating..

Amazing thread! Love your interior too, it looks great!
Question, why does the shifter trim only have two window switches? Are the rear windows only controllable from their own switch? Or is the trim from a coupe?

Ahhhhh, I understand now. It looks much cleaner with two switches, instead of four window switches plus the window lock button.
