    Hello all at bimmerforums
    Just been offered a 328i auto saloon for a good price, had a look on here before to see what to check for, seem pretty reliable engine wise so concentrated on suspension and brakes.
    The one thing thats putting me off is that it has no MOT (but has a almost full s/h and all the old mot's and bill etc), so my plan is to pay for the mot, and if it passes then i'll buy it, as otherwise the old girls looking good apart from the m3 wheels which are in a shocking state (black powder coating should sort this out).
    One thing i noticed was there was very little gap between the front shock and the tyre wall, maybe around 6mm, is this ok? Plus the tyre fouled the wheel arch at full lock, an mot failure i believe, can this be adjusted out?
    Everything else works, with no lights staying on on the dash and a silk smooth gear change in all modes.
    If i missed anything then i can drop in anytime as it's my other halves brothers and he's only up the road (so i know where he is if it turns out to be a dog )
    Looking forward to joining the bimmer club
