    Hello everyone,

    I'm a proud owner of a 318i (E46). It's my first car ever and I totally love it.

    It runs well for my standards, however it has got 145k on the clock.

    Only problems I have with it is that it needs a new expansion tank, the check engine light is on and the engine is idling rough after a long drive.

    I was going to change the expansion tank yesterday but I don't have ramps/stands and I don't wanna get under it when it's only supported by the jack so I couldn't get the undertray off :(

    Currently live in Wiltshire, doing a year internship in software engineering as a part of my uni course.

    Lol, I had to look that up at first. I'm not actually from Wiltshire. I'm from Bulgaria but me and my family moved to wales when I was 15. Did a few years of school there and then 2 years of university in Aberystwyth. Back there next year to finish the course off

    Welcome! My wife has an E46 318i, great car. We've been all over Europe in it for years. There are loads of very knowledgable people on this site (definitely not me) and their free advice has saved me a fortune over the years. Have fun!
