I had a e36 328 a while back & after 2 years of Subaru ownership I have just purchased a 2001 Y registration 330 ci. I didn't do my research properly though. Its done 104k & needs a service even though the clock say 10k left, also clock showing so thats inspection 1 & brake fluid I think.
After driving it home a few issues happened, yellow oil light comes on for about 10 seconds after engine is running, oil level sensor I think after looking at it on the internet, possible ccv whatever that is, the door rubbers have fell down, noticed he had glued them, obviously not glued them in properly. Think I need a thermostat, on motorway tempature gauge sits on 1/4, in traffic when I test drove it stood solid halfway, also need some decent rubber on there plus the a/c isnt very cold.
I feel a bit stupid as took the guys word for it was just a a/c regas, car was 100% plus he had 100% feedback selling cars so went to see it myself & didnt get it inspected.
Also would like to get a usb connection for the stereo, it looks like I cant very easy as I have no cd changer.
To summarise hope I can fix all these problems relatively easy/cheaply as thats the reason I swapped from subaru to this, love the red leather against the black paintwork so hoping for a bit of luxury cruising rather than driving around like my hair is on fire.
Search function has been great & look forward to getting some help as much as possible & fingers crossed I made the right choice of car!!!
