Thought a quick hello was in order- and of course a question too!
No idea why I havn't jumped on forums before- they seem to be the best way to get answers any day of the week!
I'm the proud owner of a E46 compact 318ti '51, interior/exterior in 'Individual' violet paintwork- yes, I know...it's purple!! Had the car a couple of years now, stacking up those motorway miles but absolutely loving it.
So now the question- do you guys all avoid dealing with the dealers in any way possible? Just recieved a couple of killer quotes for front suspension link rods £200+!! and the gearbox to exhaust bracket £75+!!
Can anyone recommend a better resource for parts?? If I can go local for the labour then happy days, but these are the first parts i've had to get for the car and don't feel confident about the local dealership/service guys at all!!
Many thanks people, off to cruise the threads ...
