I loved it when Hoovie said ,"then I'm gonna take it to the track...then it will probably blow up." Jonny looks at Hoovie with a big smile and says "OK". Like he's seen this event take place over and over with Hoovie's knack for breaking things. Total LOL.

I have a 2001 e46 325i that is a lil demon...added a few lil tricks to the arsenal but not a full racer...sure the e46 leaks like a sieve but the styling is worth it.

n54’s don’t typically blow up, its always the parts on the engines that go, and some can make one think an engine is blown when it’s not

My 08 335 with n54 is very reliable actually. Had a jb4 and fbo. 105k miles. I’ve only replaced a crank sensor inn3 years of ownership. I regularly bounce it off there’s limiter to get some pops. Still runs like a dream

Coil packs are nice and convenient, but I've had to replace wayyy more on cars than I ever did with traditional ones. (I keep a spare in the trunk of my Audi--I've had to replace them on the road twice.)

The N54 deserves worship because so few turbocharged inline sixes came to the US, and so few were available with a manual. Drive a 2JZGTE or a 1JZGTE or a RB20/25DET and you realize that the turbo inline six is just so sublime. If the N54 weren't a basketcase it might deserve further accolades, but really its only special because is the only readily available turbo inline six for US buyers.

Ditch the jb4 dinosaur, except maybe to control the meth, and do a custom backend flash with mhd. Reliability will go way up without all the jb4 wackyness.

what you're feeling in the rear end is the crazy soft rear subframe bushings. originally the car had run-flats. Once you add normal tires and stiffer suspension all that energy gives at the subframe bushings. The best thing to do is add solid aluminum bushings. TC Kline is a good recourse for these suspension-wise. Also might as well go with some pure turbo upgrades as well.

The n54 doesn't blow up easily, it's a solid engine. The supporting parts are classic failure points. The people buying the cars over 100k miles expect to do minimal or no maintenance and slap on go fast parts. Get new vanes solenoids and filters, clear codes and try again.

Euro trash with parts costing 5 to 10 times higher then their asian counterparts. Reliability of European car parts have a short lifespan. Can't even floor it once without have multiple warning lights come on. And another $500 to $2,000 to fix the issues. Meanwhile your Asian cars allows you to floor it hundreds of times if not thousands of times before multiple warning lights come on. And it can cost anywhere from $5 to $1,500 to fix the issues... But you don't have to repair it often and the lifespan lasts much longer too!!!

Thank you so much for convincing me to not consider buying one of these anymore. I've toyed with the idea for several years as prices have dropped below $15k, but those potential maintenance costs... that's why I got out of BMWs several years ago. I'll stick with the FR-S for a while.

I wonder if the 1Ms suffer from the same issues considering it's an ///M car ? The styling of the 1 has always bothered me with slight influence of the Bangle era. Someone once called it the BMW with downs syndrome, and I think that's really a good description of it. The location of the air filters on that engine is completely stupid unless there was a functional hood scoop on the car.

I prefer my N52 over the N54, IMO a lightweight port injected NA stright six manual is the truest form of BMW. I adore it. For context, the N52 might be common in the US but in the UK it's very rare, we have 118d, 120d, 123d, 118i, 120i that are all 4 cylinders and slow. So the 125i, 130i, and 135i all being straight six all feel very special here.

Get that oil filter housing fixed! Oil leaks onto the serpentine belt, and then the belt breaks and gets sucked up through the front crankcase seal and then you have to spend a fortune having your engine taken apart to get pieces of belt removed (don't ask me how I know). Wonderful engineering!
