Make It Stop & Steer Better - BMW E46 325i Touring - Project Cologne: Part 9

In this episode, I take apart a good portion of the car for no reason and fight off a bumblebee. The Touring misbehaves and rewards me with a check engine light. We also upgrade the front brakes with 330i brakes, big calipers and rotors and install M Sport control arms.

    This is such an entertaining channel. Much love for the station wagon (estate, touring, whatever you call it) that seems to be disappearing from options lists everywhere. I don't WANT a crossover! I don't WANT an SUV. I don't WANT a minivan. I WANT A STATION WAGON!

    I had the same steering column issue as you on my Mini Countryman - I took it to mechanics who wanted silly money and/or refused to do it as they didn't have 'airbag insurance', but it turned out to have the same solution.

    Another difference with the M-Sport control arms on this chassis is the mildly increased caster. Factory difference in castor is slight, but it was there. You can use regular arms with stiffer dampers and springs, but usually it's the wider tyres and bigger alloy diameters that push more stress through the suspension than 205/55 R16s. Even on regular suspension, the extra stiffening and (reportedly) tougher ball joints are worth it.

    5,000 rpm would give a lot of engines a hard time for hours on end but the mean piston speed given the short 75mm stroke is really not very high even at 6,500. The short final drive works well for acceleration but I would be fitting a slightly longer diff (available for peanuts these days) to give at least 40 km/hr per 1,000 rpm in top gear. Or, the six-speed box from the 325ti, hmm...

Btw, just replaced the same power steering line yesterday. :) I hope to get the underside as clean as yours some day, there's so much oily dirt everywhere from all the oil leaks over the car's lifetime, I couldn't get it all off without a pressure washer. But where's your plastic oil drain cover? :D

      Thanks. I don't have customers but I have friends who use them. I live in Germany and that's the very first I've heard of it. Say what you will, but Zimmerman makes great rotors, I drove with my previous M5 290 km/h, lots of hard braking on the Autobahn and they never missed a beat and lasted long time. Have them on several other cars and they've always been good. People like to shit on one brake manufacturer cause they prefer the other, same as with oil, just get whatever you prefer and has been proven for you. ATE is good, Bosch I wouldn't use for brakes, Testa I've never heard of.

      @M539 Restorations Zimmermann is not a well-regarded brand in Germany. Brembo Xtra Line, ATE, Bosch or Testa has the appropriate quality. If you and your customers are satisfied with Zimmermann ok. In Germany you have to brake from 270kmh and Zimmermann can't keep up. I wish you continued success with Zimmermann.
