    Hi all,

    I have recently decided that after 12 years of motoring I should probably give rear wheel drive a try, the car I am plumping for is 2004 320d compact sport.

    BMW 3 SERIES 320TD SPORT 3DR 2.0 2004

    I have read nothing but good things about the engine and handling apart from the flaps which I will be removing as soon as I get her.

    I was just wondering if there was anything I should be on the look out for?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    E46 - Wikipedia - Problems
    There is a Wikipedia article on the common faults, hope this can help. Also be sure to check the standard stuff such as leaks/cold starts/tyres etc.
    This specific example seems to have held its price quite well, find niggles and use them to drop the price!
    Hope you find a great example for your entry to the BMW RWD world
