    Go to the sub-forum for your model, probably you want to post in the E46 forum, that is here under 3 series https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/forum.php on the left top side you will see "Post New Thread", click there and you can make a new thread.

    Before posting, please look in the archives and/or conduct a thread search. There are a number of problems that are very common and have been covered extensively. We have attempted to save high quality threads that most thoroughly explain these issues and their resolution and they in the DIY sections.

    If you do not find your issue in the archived threads, the next step is to use the “search this forum” tool at the top to search for other threads that deal with your problem. Often, using the search feature will produce an instant answer to your question as certain problems and solutions are fairly common. On the other hand, we get excited about a new wrinkle to an old problem. If you have read and tried the solutions in the archives and they didn’t work, and you have done your own thread search with no luck, by all means, post a new thread. Please indicate in your thread that you have read the archives and what you tried and what happened.

    Please include the problem in the thread title. You will get much more of a response to something specific like “My battery is dead and I can't unlock the car” or “How do I get the electric rear seats out”, than something like, “What is this?”.

    Please be patient. This is an international community. The person who has the answer to your problem may be on the other side of the globe or may be a person who only checks in every couple of days. It is fairly typical for a thread to take a 3-7 days to run its course.

    As you are from Ireland, you probably have a EURO spec E46, always mention that and if RHD or LHD, plus built year and month, as there are many differences between EURO and US spec. cars. What might fit to US cars, might not work for EURO cars.

    "Don't Whore for Posts"? What does this mean?

    post whore

    1. A newbie to an online forum who goes into overtime posting many short and usually meaningless posts in an attempt to raise their post count to pass the newbie stage ASAP.
    2. A type of trolling or board saboteur where the intent of the person is to invade the forum with an annoying presence.
    3. A person who is starving for attention in real life and compensates for their shortcomings in society by living in a forum and inserting their presence across the board everyday and sometimes all day. As soon as their post count breaches the highest recorded for the forum, they often begin to post frequently on the direction the board should take. It is not uncommon to see their avatars change frequently often with a theme of power. Forum members will begin to try to put the member in check but to no avail as the person is feeding off of their imaginary power to which they compensate for their lack of real world activity. (Most notorious for fitting this definition is the member: Bluto from getbig dot com)
    4. A person, who feels their higher post count gives them added credibility in the forum, even over people who have contributed for much longer and as such they go to great lengths to increase their post count.
    5. A post whore is a virtual attention whore. The attention whore brings the same attitude into online forums where they assert their “look at me” persona by invading the board with a large presence of posts.

    Wish I'd have read this BEFORE trying to PM a few people about cars for sale.
    Oh well, Im sure if they were still for sale that they'll be around in 7 days or reply in the threads I posted in. We'll see!

    Glad to be onboard and learning in my search for a new(to me) car for fun

    Can anyone tell me if things have changed since the first posts of this thread?
    I ask because I had tried to send a PM yesterday, same day I registered, and while Ive not been on here for 7 days, I did get a reply PM back from a member, so Im guessing I CAN pm now?

    Hoping for clarification so I dont just send out a bunch of PMs to no one.

    you have more than 10 posts now, you got a PM back, that means you can send PM. People might not reply within a day or longer, depends how often they log in. When you click on the name of a member you see view profile, you can see the last day he has been in the forum logged in.

    see # 13 Avatars and Signatures https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum-rules/
    Please be advised that members need 100 posts before the Avatar option becomes available in your “User CP” (Control Panel).
    The enforced signature size limit is a maximum of approximately 600 pixels wide by 240 pixels high in total area. Generally, this limitation is the TOTAL size for ALL text and images in a multi-image signature. In addition to the maximum image, you are allowed two lines of text. Anything over 2 lines of text requires that you subtract 15 pixels per each line of text. Also please consider using the smaller font for any text within your signatures. If your signature or avatar is disabled, fix the problem first, then make a post in the signature/avatar request thread that can be found in the Forum Software Questions & Suggestions forum.

    Also tried to save someones e46 from catching on fire but reply never posted
    that ost is shown here https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...rom-Engine-Bay
