Perfect fit. I hope to report that they last 100,000 miles like the OEM ones. So far, so good!
Kit assembled in house by FCP to replace service kit 11410395192 put together by BMW to address S54 rod bearing failures, this affects S54 engines in E46 M3's built between 2/12/2001 and 5/22/2003
The S54 engine is known for many things. One of it's downfalls was early production E46 M3 rod bearing failures due to mis-manufactured bearings by BMW's supplier. BMW put together service kit 11410395192 which included all parts required to replace worn or defective rod bearings. This kit is no longer available from BMW despite the individual pieces being available.
E46 M3 Convertible:
Chassis Range - EX20040-EX24999
Chassis Range - PK00000-PK03913
E46 M3 Coupe:
Chassis Range - JR10051-JR23641
Please note: This kit is intended for early production S54 engines only. The connecting rod bolts are M11x1.25mm bi-hexagonal (12 point) bolts and are intended to be reused. It is absolutely required to install the bolts into the same connecting rod location they were removed from. Example, an exhaust side bolt must go back to the exhaust side hole on the connecting rod. Before removal mark the bolt location. The M11x1.25mm connecting rod bolts follow a specific tightening sequence which must followed:
1) Jointing torque - 5 Nm (~4 ft lbs)
2) Setting torque - 30 Nm (~15 ft lbs)
3) Angle of rotation - 70°
