    Hi
    Can anybody help me
    I just bought a 2004 320d Sport and it has very strong fumes coming through the heating system when switched on, but ok when off. It gives me a very sore head

    dangerous that is. could be number of things. check manifold for leaks and if it is properly attached to the turbo. broken flexi hose on the exhaust. look into engine compartment deep on the drivers side where the exhaust manifold is for traces of black soot. could help to see if you get help and see when somebody rev the car where the fumes come from, again around manifold, turbo, flexi pipe.

    Most likley the flexi joint from 1st cat to the second exhasut section, it is a notorious E46 320d failure, best repairs with a replacement flexi or a de-cat downpipe as the cheaper replacement 1st Cat are crap and OEM ones are silly money
