    Hi All

    This is my first post on BimmerForums and I hope you can all help me answer my query below.

    I'm currently thinking of buying a BMW 320CD e46 2003 plate with a high mileage of around 130,000 for under £3000 and am wondering what your thoughts are on this?

    Your feedback would be much appreciated as my main concern is the high mileage!

    Thank you all and hope to hear from you soon.

    Regards

    Taz

    just bought 320d 208000 miles all seems fine on mine, few little things but nothing to worry much about. for what i read bmw are not really much of a problem with high mileage as normally looked after and built well, mine hasn't got a scrach on it , but like i said only just got it (fingers crossed ). i almost didn't buy mine because of the high mileage, but so far well happy with it. i did knock the price down little and wanted it to go through a mot, which it passed without any problem.

    Swirl flaps need removing, the engine breather needs changing and needs to have had a reasonable oil change history if it is going to last

    Other issues include clogged up inlet manifold and EGR valve (Can be cleaned when you remove the swirl flaps) split flexi joint in the downpipe (just decat it for £110) and worn suspension bushes particularly the rear front wishbone bushes and the rear trailing arm bushes

    That is the basics

    Sounds good.

    Hopefully you can keep me posted how well the car is running.

    Thanks for the info!

    The 320cd seem to hold their price as i've seen plenty of other 320cd with even higher mileage for more price!

    I will keep you posted.
