Re: Bumper opinion

In my opinion, you paid for a bumper and received something with an issue. It's not an insignificant amount of money and it should be to your satisfaction upon arrival. That said, you didn't post a...

Re: Battery Draining

How's your car behaving? I just got my new EDC control unit coded remotely by Alex @ Alpine MSS. I'm really hoping this fixes the battery drain issue. I'll know for sure soon enough.

Re: Battery Draining

They tried two different tools and neither were able to activate the EDC control unit. It's good to hear yours is the EDC. Gives me hope that when I finally get this coded it will solve my issue.

Re: Battery Draining

I'm dealing with a similar issue right now. Lots of people on the other forum have traced it to a failing EDC control unit that doesn't let the car go to sleep. Someone reported it pulls 1.3 amps.

Re: I need input in a purchase

I've never had an E46 M3, but I do have an E90 M3. Rod bearings in the E90 M3 are and are not an issue. Many have driven for over 100k miles with no problems. If you're worried like I was, factor in...

Re: New m3 and rod bearings

It depends on the severity of the failure. In a catastrophic failure your engine will seize, a rod may get thrown, block may get damaged, lots of oil may dump. If not catastrophic, it will sound...

Re: New m3 and rod bearings

I believe the change in materials was done to satisfy the RoHS standards put into effect; no lead.

Re: When to Replace Suspension?

I had an OEM EDC shock fail recently at 50k miles. I decided to replace them all with Bilstein EDC and Swift Spec R springs. So far I'm happy with my decision.

Re: Dct warning light

It is possible to change the fluid and that may very well be your problem. You may or may not also have a leak. Change the fluid and go from there.

Re: E92 M3 reliability/issues?

Some engines have gone over 100k miles, others have had issues early on. For an 09, I would suggest doing oil analysis and check what the lead levels look like. Or, just change them out. The car is...
