thought I'd stop by as a newbie and introduce myself.
this is probably my first of many posts on here but its mainly to say thanks for the info.
i recently got a 96 318i which promptly died 2 days after getting it!!!
I was left scratching my head very angrily as i was unsure of the fault and assumed i had been sold a dud!!
but after a friend told me to check the forums i discovered loads of help on here and after reading quite a few posts i diagnosed a dodgy crankshaft sensor.
£50 and about an hours work and I'm back on the road again

So thanks for the help and hopefully i can reurn the favour at some point in the future!
