    Hi there, well where to start.....
    i bought myself a lovely black 2003 316ti se compact my only problem is that it was sold as seen but when i took it for a test drive everything was running sweet, the next day or so the emmisions light came on and revs started playing up, also power seems to be a bit rubbish, i have also noticed it has an oil leek and i can smell oil burning when i drive the car. its roughly dripping about 2 tablespoons a day after icome back from driving it dont think its head gasket as oil cap is clean and no sign of water would it be my rocker cover gasket away or would i be best checking anything else now im on a tight budget as not working so cant really afford to get BMW to look at it as they would charge me an arm and a leg lol any advise i can get would be great...

    many thanks

    Welcome Mackers,

    Your best bet is to post a thread in the E46 Technical Section, perhaps titled 2003 E46 316ti - Problems and then bulletpoint your issues in the post to make it easier to read.

    This way you should get a lot of publicity and people will find it easier to help you
