So I picked up my latest project yesterday, it made for an interesting drive back from Napier... Was stolen, presumably thrashed, recovered and then sold to myself at Turners. You put your foot down, the RPMs increase, then drop then start increasing along with your speed. If you floor it the RPM increases as you'd expect but nothing else really happens, then you start to move, in the upper RPM range it seems to be better (presumably everything is loaded up at this point). There is a large disconnect between the throttle/RPM and the speed, feels like driving an auto that you can stall. After the last and particularly slow hill on my way home I could smell what I assume to be clutch (a kind of burnt smell, similar to that of a train braking hard), my guess is the flywheel is stuffed which is proceeding to cook the clutch at lower RPMs. Assuming my diagnosis that I'm up for a clutch and flywheel is correct, what suggestions do people have? Clutch I'm thinking e34 M5 and flywheel I'd like the cheapest (but still adequate option), undecided on DMF vs SMF. This is a road going convertible so not looking for some insane race clutch and ultra light flywheel
E46 Clubsport 2005 (Facelift) Velvet Blue (BMW individual) Steptronic Napa Black leather interior Cubic silver trim 210kms Slightly higher rev limit to other e46's (ZHP) with an extra 5-10hp I've heard due to the exhaust cam having larger lobes, feels peppier than other 330s also. Airbags replaced already as per recall etc. Stickers in boot for those. Have replaced most things in the past two years of owning to bring it back up to a nice standard. Sitting with BC coilovers brand new, months old (with BMW reinforcement plates on all 4 towers) no cert currently. New radiator, thermostats, vac lines, intake boots, steering rack replaced, front disks, rocker gasket, trans gasket/filter and new fluids for everything even washer fluid 😜, diff oil, disa valve, brand new coils, spark plugs (NGK), fuel pump & filter and a bunch more items bushes etc. Rear bumper repainted (recent chip 😕), front still needs to be done and mirrors clearcoat. Spent 5k on OEM parts so hard to recall without looking at the receipts now, not including BC coils and carbon boot. Happy to sell the car with or without the BCs and carbon boot. Has carbon strut brace also(not pictured). Previous owner tinted windows 35% Did water pump and couple other items I recall. Have all receipts for every item. Has the 6disc changer in boot also have wired in an aux and have a Bluetooth DAC connected to that in the glovebox for wireless audio. Aux/Bluetooth Works while playing blank CDs perfectly. There are chips and a couple small dents as age and KMs. Ask me questions happy to answer. Looking for $11k with the BCs and carbon boot. With just stock items looking for $8,5k hit me up happy to chat. Taken my personal details off since sold. Have two sets of rims so can choose OEM or silver unknown brand if like. Or both if price right. In no rush as I have a second car and looking for the most I can reasonably get to fund new dream. photos are with stock suspension except 4,5th
Drove my e46 to work today.... It's still at work.... Turns over beautifully, but won't start. Disconnected battery for 1 minute Tried in P, N, foot on brake, foot on gas (and both/none) RPM gauge above 0 (though below 500) Temp gauge slightly above coldest despite sitting all day It did make a strange whirring noise that increased with RPM in the last few minutes of my drive (sounded like a turbine. Fan clutch is new) I may have ever so gently kissed the car park ramp with the under carriage (low cars...) Radio works Never had any issues starting in the past Can't get to the CPS to check it I should probably pull a plug to check for spark and fuel Key is fairly new
Posting on behalf for my brother he has cash now and wants an e46. Max 5k depending on the car itself. Prefer the 2000 year and above if possible. 325i upwards hopefully also. Open to offers etc. Were located I Hamilton will travel Auckland places similar. You can also email me on Ashley.email@example.com
