    Hi all I have recently bought myself a 2004 e46 330ci sport cab (my 5th BMW now), got myself a bit of a winter/e-bay bargin and so far I'm pretty pleased with it. I have had a few things to sort on the car which I expected at the money that I paid for the car for. The car has done very little miles in the last year or so (600 in 8 months) and only 43k in total, having been used as 3rd car so a few issues due to lack of use + the previous owner I suspect generaly loosing intrest in the car and leaving a few things without getting them sorted etc!.

    To cut a long story short I have had the following issues, upon collection the car drove like a shopping trolly (and thats being kind!) steering all over the place and vibration through the steering wheel under braking etc, softer suspension on the rear right than the left, oh and the mirrors had a mind of their own!, very sluggish too.

    I have since sorted the above problems and will post up what ive done to the car in the E46 section, in the meantime here's a pic of my car and I look forward to speaking to you all, Bishy

    Welcome to the forum Bishy... Looks a great car mate..in the best colour as well..(But I would say that...)

    I,ll keep my eye out for your write up.. I'll be interested to read how you have made it less sluggish,,,Its just mine was exactly the same..but I still feel its a tad sluggish..

    Mark..
