    Hi all, after driving hot Golfs and Leons for the past 10 years I have finally ditched them and got a 2007 E90 320d Msport Saloon. Lovely car, no issues yet and look forward to talking to you all about mods.

    I have tuned a lot of BMW's and a customer pointed me in direction of this forum.

    Chris

    Mine is the 163bhp, thought they were fairly problem free. I thought the 177 had the issues?

    Just get your swirl flaps blanked off, make sure it's getting up to operating temperature and every second oil change get your crank case breather done that's what I've been told anyway. I have the same engine in my 57 520d enjoy.

    Interesting. Does all this, in your opinion, apply to the 318d 143 model?

    Hi Chris, car sounds good. What colour?
    E91 318d M Sport Business Ed - but guess where?

    Silver. I finally found the time to remap it now as well so it has a little more poke.
