    Hello and welcome on board

    Be sure to read Tefals thread on the BMW E46 Diesel Engine for preventative maintenance hints and tips.

    There are other cheaper options for the numberplate lights

    Welcome to the forum!

    I too have number plate light corrosion issues - managed to buy a replacement from a forum member breaking their coupe and followed Slowtech's how to on modding the coupe light to fit the saloon. Worth a look. - I personally wouldn't spend £75 on it - (Yours is black plastic right? - mine is - if not, don't forget the extra cost of painting!!) Perhaps try to find one at a scrap yard or something cause all you need is the light fitting out of it.

    Looking forward to seeing your pictures! always nice to find another 330d driver.

    I've had Immo since about May and rest assured the big grin is still firmly in place!

    Thanks ill have a look next week.

    Not having much luck. had to buy two new tyres as one was flat due to a nail. As he put the last tyre on he noticed the bushes had gone.
    Hopefully the guy i bought the car from last week can sort it out free foc.
    If the bushes have failed you that make a knocking noise when i come of the clucth and accelerator to quickly?
