  1. Ah yeah I thought as much. Thank you for checking. I'm about to start taking the 318 to bits but I think I've got everything covered. I have both cars here it'll just be time consuming moving it all over. Just wanted to make sure there was no other way to wire up the drive by wire but it looks like the whole loom is coming out! Cheers again
  2. Hey Allan thanks for your reply. The engine is a m43tub19 I believe. The in line 4 sohc 1.9L
  3. Ah yep. All the running gear is being changed, ECU, engine, am putting the 5 spd manual ZF in as well. So it sounds like the entire loom that the throttle pedal is connected to needs to be moved over?
  4. Hello all, I'm sorry if this has been solved or discussed somewhere but I could not find anything. I'm doing the 3.0L swap from a 330i into my 318i wagon (both E46) and am up to the point of removing the drive by wire throttle assembly from the 330. I am wondering what the process involves? Do I have to take the whole harness the wire from the throttle pedal attaches to, or can I tease them out somehow? Any help would be hugely appreciated! Many thanks. Some pics of the madness if anyone's interested :) (the car with the halos is the wagon getting the new motor)

    Hey man cheers for the tips! I'm getting a whole donor car with all that stuff in it, so all the running gear will go out of one and into mine. However the harness I'm getting is for an auto but I think there's a wiring trick to that. Cheers.

    Yes I believe it was. I am sorting it with the seller now, we think it may be a packaging problem. Thanks all for your help

    Oh I see that makes sense. Thanks a lot for your response, I'll get in contact with my seller and discuss this with him. Thanks again!

    Oh yep I know the place. Cheers for that mate
  14. Hello everyone, I recently bought a brand new m sport front bumper, listed as being sweet as for 2000 to 2005 e46 sedans and wagons. After opening it and removing my old bumper I quickly found that it's got almost no room for the front bash bar, and has no where for me to bolt the bash bar into. I've taken some photos, Ive pointed at the spots on the two bumpers as to where the original had the inserts and holes for the bash bar, compared to the new one which doesn't. I hope someone can tell me if I have purchased the wrong bumper, or I need a different bash bar, or I've missed something really obvious! Many thanks!
