Impact of Excess Gas on Blackstone Report

I have a new-to-me 2003 M3 Coupe (6spd) with 115,000 miles. The rod bearings were changed under the factory recall at 19,000 miles. Apart from that, I have no records of prior service. I bought...

Flat Bed Tow did damage!

I had my car taken to the shop on a flat bed tow truck. Watched the guy put it on, but did not drive all the way to the shop with him. Bad move. I am calling the tow company to get them to cover...

Re: Injector flooded cylinder - Long term problems?

Injector flooded cylinder - Long term problems?

I was driving my 2003 to work yesterday when the EML light came on and the engine went into limp mode. I pulled over within 1/2 a block. Turned off the engine, and it failed to restart. No...

Factory vs BMW replaced Rod Bearings

I have an early build 2003 6sp with 115K miles. The rod bearings were replaced at a dealership at 18K miles. I am just coming up to an oil change and will get a Blackstone analysis done.

Alignment Tomorrow -- Full or half tank of gas?

Sorry for the noob question.... is there a preference to the amount of gas in the tank when you get a 4 wheel alignment? I read somewhere that the dealership adds 300# to simulate the driver, so the...

Winter Tire Sizing - Will this work?

My 2003 6sp Coupe needs winter tires. I live in the Pacific Northwest where cold rain is the typical winter problem, with the occasional ice/snow storm thrown in.

Re: Not an M3 or even an e46 but....

I did as Obioban suggests with my N52. The N52 came in 3 states of tune from BMW, and adding the 3 stage disa, plus a tune, takes it to the top level of tune used in the 330i and the X5. It truly...

Re: OEM + shocks vs Dinan stage 1 vs B12

EricSMG, Obioban and ftc3,
I am down to Konis and either Dinan or OEM springs. I know it is hard to describe, but can you compare the 'plushness' of the these two setups? Are they almost the same?...

Re: OEM + shocks vs Dinan stage 1 vs B12

EricSMG - thank you for you quick reply. With all your different setups, I was hoping you would weigh in with your experiences. Very helpful.

TboneM3 - it is a 6spd coupe.

Re: E46 M3 6MT intermittently won’t go into gear

I am totally not an expert, but I agree with Poms. A visual inspection of the motor and tranny mounts may not tell you the truth of their condition, and they have had a good long existence....they...

Re: Transmission Fluid Change

I used RedLine in my E92 for about 40,000 miles. I originally put it in to fix the difficulty I was having with the tranny when it was cold (winter driving in the 30*F to 40*F range). It was very...

What condition are the syncros after a SMG to 6spd swap?

I am seriously considering a SMG to 6spd swap. For those that have done it, how were the syncros? Does the smg tend to be easy on the syncros?

Re: Importing a M3 from Canada?

To the OP, if you are looking at the Vancouver CL, at least one of those (nice) m3's is a US car.

Re: What was your first car before you eventually got your e46 M3?

Seriously. Exactly like the wagons below. Fabulous leather seats.
One night all the cars in the block were spray painted, except mine. They must have thought that it was already ugly enough.
