Re: Estoril Blue Coupe E46 M3 Craigslist

That's true. Which shows that it was the second highest individual color on demand.

Re: Lateral play in Input flange

Closing the loop on this topic. Vehicle is running just fine, no issues in the past 15 days, no m clunk. Moving on to new challenges.

Thank you all for your feedback.

Re: Lateral play at Input flange

Re: Lateral play in Input flange

Yea, I think I'll be following your advice. In theory I should not have a problem since the nut and pinion are marked. But if I am screwed then I'll find out soon enough.

Re: Liam821's 17k 2005 IB M3 ZCP restoration

28k for an m3 zcp with 17 k sounds like a steal! I see these up for sale for 50k!

Good luck with the restore!

Re: Lateral play at Input flange

Ok, the good news is that the nut is under torqued !

Also, seems like i didnt place the retaining plat of the nut which caused it to get loose.

I will tighten it based on the marking and...
