    E46 330D saloon

    Picked this up fairly cheap, and local. Not my ideal spec (prefer auto, and touring.) but it'll do to make sure we like it before putting down more money on one. Spec: 2002 SE model 184bhp manual Grey heated leather Climate BMW business with 6cd Multifunction steering wheel. Cruise/auto...

    So with the ph1 dying of rust, I collected this shell: Porkies old cup, complete with safety devices full cage. This thread will be a build log more than a thread. Slowly things are coming together for the engine build, things have been turning up slowly, but surely. Spec will be based...

    Who else has O2 issues?

    Vikki has had no end of issues with them and is now in a situation which she has to pay either way to get out of. Here is a copy of the letter I wrote to them, as it's easier than retyping! She has been left with a very bitter taste in her mouth due to an ongoing problem with the service, or...

    CSS'14 peoples opinions and experience

    Just thought I'd start a thread for people to relay their feelings/experiences of the show. For me, ultimately it was a bit disappointing, and having spoken to a few people I think that was the general feeling too. It didn't seem to be well catered for (if you like pork and ice cream you're...

    Inferno with a lying owner "90mm throttle body" That's 25mm larger than standard. Yet still has the standard air intake hose. I really hate it when people feel the need to lie about the car and what it has/hasn't had done.

    SD Card error?

    Now I use an Innovate LM2 to do my datalogging whilst I do my remaps. This saves the data on to an SD Card. I usually plug it directly into the port of my laptop. But yesterday it kept saying it wasn't formatted. I tried to format it and it wouldn't have any of it still. So I put it in my...

    VikkiB's 2nd 172.

    Well, after tipping the black one over, she needed a replacement. And as the black one held up so well she felt safe in another one. Here's the mess of the black one. And here's the replacement. Collected it today, due to a very badly frayed aux belt that somehow has...

    If you could have one thing from the past on your Clio, what would it be?

    What would you bring back from the past, and why? For instance: Cable throttle. For the throttle response Or Viscous diff's instead of th electronic stuff as standard fit.

    LY 197 - Street. A39 traffic lights. F1 launch.

    Really necessary to drive like you were on the starting grid? Swerving out from your lane to make it past 1 car? I do advise you set £60 aside however, as the way you were driving I doubt you saw the Speed camera can sat in the layby just by that junction.

    Only a quick one as I'm a complete novice at this car cleaning shizz. Can you use a wax ontop of this to enhance it? something like butter wet wax? or nattys blue(both of which I have.) The current state of my car is saying it needs some attention, several car washes later its getting to...

    Broken belt idler.

    Not quite a clio, but a scenic with a VVT F4R, belt was changed on time by a Renault dealer over in Wales that has since gone bankrupt. My suspicions are that they didn't change the idlers as the tensioner is like a roller skate bearing.
