After some mild diagnosis on my Flood Salvage E46 BMW M3 I thought we were going to have several small electrical issues that would take a long time to repair. After reading a shop manual, and some support articles I traced my alternator wires and couldn't believe what I found! The previous owner completely misdiagnosed the issue, and sold this car cheap because he couldn't figure it out!

  • What's your favorite INLINE V6 car 🤣??? (Wrong Answers Only)

    • @Leonardo Sawyer Awesome! Took about 20 mins but it worked!!

    • Dunno if anyone cares but I just hacked my girlfriends Instagram account by using Instaportal. You can find it by Googling for Instapwn password hacker if you wanna try it yourself

    • cobra challenger 392 for sure

    • Best inline V6 is Tesla!

    • Run a 0awg oxygen freen copper from the battery pos to the alternator pos and do the same for the neg and bypass you factory harness stereo guys do this generally called the big three upgrade all your chassis grounds

  • Dont buy raycons they suck live buds or jbl

  • After personally owning one of these cars my bet is all in on paper weight

  • bmw give alt. input voltage from cluster check if you have v in at alt.

  • rieger makes full kits check em out

  • It had flood damage and nobody checked the wiring?

  • It's not just about saving weight. It's about making sure weight is balanced. They have to make the front as light as possible to make up for all the heavy things in the front.

  • How does a bad +ve connection to a starter solenoid interfere with the charging circuit? Meh...

  • The people who paint the car may be they were cost of the problem

  • Inline V6 ???? You talk too fast lol. Great videos though 👌

  • Intro music sounds like the pimp my ride tune.

  • Car looks like it came straight from k mart. Some kid's beat up can sprayed crap.

  • I went through 4.... 4! Brand new (not remand) alternators on my 07 335i from AutoZone before I got a remand from O'Reilly Auto that worked. The AutoZone alternators were manufactured in China and the O'Reilly alternator was remanufactured in Mexico. Been working great for almost a year now. PS: I did try to get the new alternators tested before going through the trouble of installing them but AutoZone didn't have the capability of testing and alternator with a clutch on it. At least my local store didn't.

  • 3:00 inline v6 BRUH I WANNA DIE 😂

  • There is a separate connection for the warning light and the main battery lead to the alternator

  • Just track for voltage drop from the alternator to track down the problem. Troubleshooting 101

  • Didn't see you using them raycons in the timelapse Sam, care to explain?

  • Oh interesting. I definitely would have gone for the alternator as well. Buy a new one and sell the old one online. Your friend here is the voltage meter. I had a cable connection problem that caused a misfire on a E90.

  • Is it for sale

  • Looking for a free M3 in Australia must be damage free with a just a missing coil. Will collect if right car . Can’t hurt to ask . 😉

  • Sam your channel is great

  • Definitely should make these videos less advertising and more fixing

  • It's probably got massive wheel spacers on it

  • Finally an easy ish fix

  • Did he say inline v6? 😐

  • You need a starter voltage flows threw the starter to charge just like a gm

  • Bruh he said an inline v6 like wut

  • Imagine the face on the old owners face when he sees this 🤣🤣

  • The music gave me the vibe of a old school orginal nintendo racing game

  • I cant believe the previous owner didn’t check the connections before getting rid of the thing. Wow people are stupid.

  • A loose wire 😶

  • Those euro cars are going to give you a headache and dent your wallet lol.

  • The 3.2 inline 6 is a bulletproof engine....if you do normal maintenance....it will take care of you

  • Those are 4 rear wheels lol. front should be quite a lot thinner.

  • how does the car have carplay?

  • Can't run it long enough to warm up, then proceeds to rev it to redline...

  • Harbor Freight multimeter. Impressive!

  • I’ve been looking for a e46 forever for a good price if he’s selling in buying

  • E46 M3 ????? 😫 they’re so Rare and I live in Germany!!!! But the prices are too high now !!!!! When you want a Clean Car with low km or Mileage, you must pay about 20-25K € in Euros !! they’re not cheap no More !im so mad at myself why I didn’t bought one when they were cheap !!! I remembers when they coasts about 10-12K € Euro !!!

  • Yes it did cost you a new alternator

  • I had a 2001 A4 Quattro that had a pinched alternator slave wire that was pinched between the head and block that was causing the alternator to not to charge, one butt connector and it was fixed

  • E46 all day!! So fun to drive. Mine feels like its on rails!!

  • I just finished up a 535 xdrive without a lift and it wasn't bad at all. Replaced the oil pan.

  • If you woul have done a voltage drop test from the back of the alternator to the positive jumper Post you would have found the problem faster The whole time

  • inline raycons!

  • This reminds me of the transmission fluid leak on my Mercedes W203 that needed a $25 part for the repair.

  • Looks like that one catalytic convertor was clogged notice how brute and shines the metal was sam

  • Those are original M3 rims there just spray painted black

  • I would guess that the wheels have spacers in the front Nd not the rear bc I run that same set up on my e46 drift car with a wider tire in the rear then the front lol

  • god those taillights are ugly. I suggest replacing those with OEM e46 LED taillights

  • Bro did he just say inline v6?.... lmfaooo @3:02

  • Hi, would you sell the headlight for the 3 series e92 you took the wheels off of to me? I need to drivers side

  • For the loose climate control unit that was relocated because of his eonon after market radio. Dynavin makes a great new bracket for $70 that I have, it has a USB port, charging port, and cigarette lighter port.

  • "This ground wire..." Is actually red.

  • 10:37 do not strike with hammer lol

  • Get rid of the dumb adds!

  • Give that m3 to me pleas dream car🥺🥺

  • Exacktly!!!!!

  • After fail with the M5 V10 , it' s simple to fix inline rather the V line 🤣🤣🤣

  • Personally, I'm a truck person but I'm watching this as my interest in salvage or auction buys is higher than in buying a new car or a salvage car a lot purchased and "fixed" themselves. Would rather pay the wholesale price for a salvage car than a mark-up for a salvage car that had some make-up and window dressing only.

  • Pretty well sorted car!!! How can u say that and keep a straight face?

  • Hi mate, avoid leaving your cars on grass, all metal parts underneath your cars will start to rust.

  • You could sell the engine for close than the price of the car

  • Staged obviously

  • "Or hate it because it's not a toyota celica" hahaha rev up your engine!!

  • Looks like 4 rear wheels to me. The rears are wider and the offset is different

  • Do you know why you have electrical issue with that car and nobody can diagnose and you got lucky and came across it? Cuz it's a BMW it's a piece of shit

  • How much did you pay for it

  • “Inline V6” dude. And the fucking alternator power doesn’t go on the starter😡😡

  • put a hoist in your place... how do you not have one ???

  • I'm interested in buying the m3

  • Why don't you sell the 335i I would honestly buy it

  • well done!!! i hope old owner wont see the video he will be really angry and jealous!!! maybe he will ask to rebuy it !!!remove video and ask for double money to sell it back fixed!!lol !! ahahhahaaha ....just joking...

  • Man i would love a 335i or a m3 e46 but in europe the 335i are so expensive and the e46 most of them are rhd

  • I think its a must to mention that you should always remove the negative terminal on the battery before any electrical modification or work

  • Can you make a significant profit by fix these totaled cars?

  • Not watching any more to much advert,s

  • what a steal im jealous

  • What’s the radio it has on anyone know wanna get for mines ?

  • Raycon.. made in china.. rebranded in the us.. u can order similar sets online at much cheaper price..

  • brush @reg the same

  • 👍👌

  • Needs to be put back to standard looking.looks cheap and tacky.

  • Alternator went bad then the owner tried to start it with a low battery and got the connections hot at the starter. That caused both the corrosion and the loose connection.

  • Who buys an M3 and then throws used winters on it? Yikes.

  • Nice work, easy way I've found to find similar faults is by doing voltage drop tests. You're able to nail down where you're loosing conduction and hone in on that component. Never the less, fixed. Cool vid to watch, adventures of euro cars

  • The bumper bar isn’t carbon fiber, it’s Kevlar wrapped

  • yo why am a seeing paddocks with cars randomly parked spaced out?

  • One or the other man inline or v6 could never have both

  • The e46m3 will always be more valuable than an e92 335.Both however are unreliable money pits with built in problems that WILL fail.

  • John Ross had similar issue on his "67" Camaro

  • i got a e46 m3 with a blue title for 2200 6 months ago and it was a simply smg pump failure

  • Csl bumperrr!!!!!

  • They probably forgot to tighten that starter after they installed engine back after repainting the car 😅

  • That car is pretty cool.

  • I almost spit my coffee out this Sunday morning hearing Inline V6....

  • Should put some dielectric grease on the lugs at the connection bolt.

  • Sam are you fucking high or something??? there are multiple sources for an aftermarket OEM style M3 bumper. Bimmerworld sells one for $200

    • was looking for this comment before I comment on this too. Guy is spent, he also says an inline v6, who would have known those existed. how idiots like him have 1 million + subs is beyond me.

  • I love this car you have

  • Is the car for sale
