    Hi Peeps newby round these ends!

    Just bought a 316ti SE 2001 last week took delivery ofth e car from an Evans Halshaw in Leeds! Needless to say on returning to Manchester the problems started! Its going back on Thurs (15/07) 2 days! I was hoping one of u Bimmer Guru's could help me out the list is as follows.

    - the day after purchase drivers electric window wont go down all the way.
    - alarm goes of when it pleases and central locking wont work all the time.
    - Keeps blowing system fuse no.49.
    - Dramatic loss of power by 3rd day and sound like exhaust is blowing but cant see any soot or holes any were ( not had it on a ramp yet). - Worrying Me! - Timing Chain?
    - The air conditioning just makes a weird wining noise and does not get very cold.
    - the steering wheel shakes under light braking.
    - Oh yeh and the garage sold it me with out an M.O.T (This is why its going back on Thurs!

    You sound like you've unwittingly bought a lemon.

    It is probably wise listening to the words of "baderlfc".

    Welcome to the forum of bimmers. We'll be as helpful as possible, but we'll also be as honest as possible.

    Hope you get your issues sorted or find another car
