    I'd try a wash and then a medium clay bar. Some elbow grease (and lots of clay lube) should probably get it off. You could try goo gone too but I'm not sure it'll be strong enough. Can't hurt though.

    If you're careful, a flat razor would do it too. But big scratching risk, if you car about that.
    Personally, If I couldnt cscrub/ clay it off/heatgun and scrape with my nails off, I'd probbaly razor it off if it looked like ass. but my car's all scratched ti shhit from 17 years of complete neglect and shitty washes that destroyed the paint

    Yea it's a 17 year old car. Not like I care THAT much. As long as it passes the 50/50 rule I'm mostly ok.

    Also the stock rear 330 calipers are definitely NOT enough to lock up the rears. So I'm happy I figured that out.

    I agree. Takes quite a yank to lock them up, I even have the larger diameter willwood MC on my kit, with full stainless lines. It DOES lock them, but not as easily as I'd like. Are you going to switch them out asap?

    Well I'm shoving in the LS2 this winter with a full M3 rear end so... I'm probably gonna hold off. Plus I'm half concerned my welds are going to pop. I got the hard stuff done so this shouldn't be so bad to reweld with the M3 arms off the car.

    The stock calipers are fine at locking the rear wheels, you just need good pads and a 5/8" master.

    Well my fucking dumb ass welded over the wheel speed sensors and now my freaking car is stuck in limp mode. I had a horrible event trying to drive around it. Probably also have a vac leak. Man that LS swap is looking more and more appealing.

    I had my tuning laptop so I got rid of that but limp mode cuts timing too

    This is so weird. I've never had any issue with this before. '97 328, '00 328, '01 325 - All I ever had to do was remove relays(e36) or unplug a wheel speed sensor(e46).

    Andy Sapp used to have an article up somewhere about the wheel speed sensors on E46s and them putting his car in limp but I can't find it now.

    E46s are weird, manual swapping them locks them in to a 5k redline / limp as well.

    IIRC, unplugging one wheel speed sensor works. unplugging both rears triggers the mode protomor is talking about.

    Well the mounts I got were a one piece for the whole caliper. So I'm cutting out the center section to reaccess the hole for the sensors. So far one side came along well enough that I could fit the sensor back in. Looks like I might be able to do both! I just need some time now to finish it. I'll take pix if my welding doesn't look like crap. I think I might be one of the few who choose to weld on brackets instead of eliminating the stock ebrake.

    yup. my 98 328is did this intermittently. basically any super hot day, which is almost every day in south texas. i pulled the ABS relay and the problem has never come back.
