Re: Windshield washer leak

Re: 1m v e46 M3 pics

1 series and 1M never did anything for me. I also think that 1M feels like a slightly moded 135i.

Re: To purchase an M3?

For PPI and where to get it done, look up local forums and ask what are good places to get it done. I had my PPI done at BMW deler but only after i read positive feedback.

Re: So, Is this normal? I maxed out 3rd gear!!

Well at this point i wouldn't be going 100mph in 3rd until you check the codes. The fact that the car would not go over 4500RPM after you did that, there is something going on under the hood.
