    Hi Everyone

    Just bought my first BMW 320d SE (2003) and will be picking it as soon as my current car is sold.

    Car is in Topaz Blue, 4dr Saloon.

    Is there anything i should know? Will be changing the stereo as i have to say for a car of this qulaity the audio is shocking, but you can't have it all.

    Hope to be able to contribute as well as pick peoples brains.

    Cheers

    J

    Hello Johnhol and welcome to Bimmerforums UK, it's good to have you on board

    Have a read here on things to look out for http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/index.htm?md=36

    My worry would be the swirl flaps

    Hi johnhol and welcome to the forums

    Ditto what Ronnie said about the swirl flaps, its a relatively easy mod.
    I'd change the oil breather when/if you get the swirlies done and regular oil changes to help keep the turbo in tip top condition.

    Welcome mate - yeah like everyone saying Swirl Flaps, best to get the sorted before they cause a lot of dmg! I personally know nothing about them as i don't have any but i've read no end of post about it.

    Ask about the turbo and the swirl flaps as you never know they may have been sorted already. (depending on milage ofc)

    Nice buy though mate.
