Where can you get a BMW M3 rear wheel alignment?

There are usually a few shops in just about every city that specialize in suspension and alignment. These are the places that a good auto body shop sends cars. Try to find the alignment shop that's been in business for at least 10 years, dong the same work and owned by the same people.

Ask around at places that DON'T do their own alignments, find out who is the best alignment shop in town, then call the shop to find out if they'll do a 4 wheel alignment for you. Then let THEM decide if the front wheels need alignment as well. If you've found a good shop you need to let them do their job.

Are 1997 BMW M3 plastic models available?

Yes... However, I am unable to locate a factory representation of the model. I found a diecast with a racing-style modification.. Not quite the same as you were looking for, though.

I know of a place where you may be able to get a factory-representation, but it is not available online. If you wish to see the product I found, it is available by typing this: = " 1:43 BMW M3 BLAUPUNKT LUI Norisring DTM 1997 "

-----Into an eBay search. =

I am unable to find a M3 from 1997 with a die cast. It is possible to find mini (match-box sized) models of the '97 M3, however. But usually only available from private collectors or online auctioneers.

Where can you find the Flasher relay on a 89 BMW M3?

I have a 89 iS E30. You have to take off the cover to the steering colum. Not sure if it is the same on the M3. I have a friend who has an M3 I'll try to ask him.

Why would a 1999 BMW M3 that was in a rollover accident have white smoke coming out of the exhaust when the car starts and after it is warmed up?

Not having anymore info. other than it was in a rollover, the engine head could be cracked and allowing coolant to get into the combustion chamber which could explain smoking at start up and after the engine is warm. Check your coolant tank for any oil residue - if there is oil in the tank, you've got a engine head problem and your best bet is to get a new head after verifing that the block isn't also damaged.

Does anyone know if BMW made an M5 model that does not have the dual exhaust and the M5 badge on the rear?

if you mean quad exhaust not dual, the a latest M5's had quad exhausts (E39 and E60) the E34 before them had dual exhuasts on one side, as did the first BMW M5 (E28). however there are some cars that had M tuned suspension and body parts ( front spoilers, interior parts etc.) called M package, but not an Motorsport developed engine. Only Motorsport vehicles from BMW came with the M\\\ badge. Motorsport package vehicles will have M\\\ badges inside on the interior, but not on the exterior of the vehicle. Remember though, you can buy an M badge from eBay for next to no money, so I am sure many people have M badges on their non M vehicles :)

Thermostats

How do you change the thermostat on your 1996 BMW M3?

If you open the hood and look at the front of the engine you should see two radiator hose converging into a black plastic piece that on either side seems to be bent slightly down. This is the thermostat housing. To replace your thermostat with no issues you must first put something under your car to catch radiator fluid. Then disconnect the hoses from either side of the housing( this is where the catch can comes in handy). Now remove the 4 or 5 10mm bolts holding the thermostat hosing on. Once removed the thermostat will be on your left. Be sure to also replace the rubber gasket as the housing will not seal correctly if not replaced.

Does the E46 BMW M3 need to be topped off with oil regularly?

yes, it is designed that way and completely normal. <--- this is absurd!

No, not necessarily. I don't believe any manufacturer would design an engine to intentionally burn/lose oil. You may need to top off your oil regularly depending on a few factors; 1. the condition of your engine; If your need to top off your oil every few weeks chances are you have put a lot of wear and tear on your engine block. Consider having your piston seals replaced. 2. The type of oil you use; If you drive an M3 I would highly recommend using fully synthetic oil, some more expensive German oils have anti friction technology which makes it even harder to burn and improves overall performance. 3 the way you drive the car; obviously, if you drive for 130+ mph for extended periods of time and are using regular oil, you will definitely generate enough heat to lose some oil... so to answer your question, NO should not have to top off your oil regularly in your e46 M3, unless any of those three conditions apply. Now on that note, you should still check your oil level at least once a month, top it off if nessisary.

Personally I drove an e36 M3 for 10000 miles over 10 months, often at very high speeds for extended periods of time and never had to add a single drop oil. The engine is obviously in near flawless condition and I use Lubro Moly MoS2 Anti Friction 10w40 oil. If your looking for the ultimate engine oil they also make a 0w40 which is endorsed by BMW.

It is normal oil consumption for ANY BMW to burn 1 quart with in 3k miles(conventional or synthetic). Look it up on BMWTIS. 10k on 1 oil change for 10 months could be considered abuse. Conventional oil is 3k miles, synthetic is 6k miles, regardless of these 10k to 12k oils.

BMW M roadster oil?

From what I have heard, the M-Roadster was designed to be used with BMW synthetic oil which is a re-branded bottle of Mobil1. Conventional oil would work, but it may lead to future engine problems. I would recommend 20w-50.
