    Your info says you've got a 318, that wouldn't be an M54 (think it's an M43, but I'm no expert on the 4 pot engines).

    If I'm right, have a read of this thread: Cruise on M43 engines.. - E46Fanatics

    Hello mate, welcome to BFI

    As @ABM said, the 318 doesn't use the M54 engine.

    Welcome Andrew

    I've got an E46 CC (even though i have e36) i haven't started wiring it yet but will let you know how it goes, if you want. If you make a thread on section "3 Series Forum", other people might help. Your engine's also M43 (1.6 - 1.8)
