Hey all, thought I'd sign up as I had seen this forum when scouting around for related problems...
Just picked up a second hand year 2002 316i E46 (99k on clock) on Wednesday, had to take it straight back to the garage though as it won't start - garage says cam timing has slipped, and thanks to these forums (and a couple of others) this seems to be a known issue, so will see what happens next week. All works should be under warranty (was told I have a 3 month warranty on it).
Bit of a crap start to my new ownership, but the test drive and the couple of hours where it did work before it broke down sold me and I love that car to bits!
Any other things people think I should look for on a car this age?
Also, anyone from around Nottingham know a good garage to take BMWs? I took my old car (Clio) to HLE up in Langley Mill, really nice guys up there, not sure on their expertise in bimmers though... (EDIT: Found the recommended garage thread, gonna take me a while to browse everything that's available here )
