Welcome, BMW E46 Owners

Your home for everything BMW E46 including Maintenance, Performance Upgrades, and Community

The BMW E46 is the fourth generation of the 3-series produced worldwide from 1999-2006 - available in sedan, coupe, hatchback, and wagon body styles. The M3 variant of the E46 came later on in 2001 available as a coupe or convertible. In the U.S. the E46 could be had with a few different six-cylinder engines while the M3 got the beloved 3.2L S54 straight-six. All E46 models were available with a traditional automatic transmission, some with the SMG automated manual, and others with five or six-speed manual transmissions. The E46 325xi brought the option for AWD back to the 3-series for the first time since the E30 while all other E46 models sent power to the rear wheels. Midway through 2003, the E46 was updated with new models, engines, interior/exterior options (with LED taillights being a key addition), and other features.
