Just saying hello as i've bought an '02 320d, i spent quite a long time looking for one at a good price and eventually got mine from a guy in Newcastle. Reading the forum has been a bit of an education regarding common faults etc, my car has been de-flapped, de- EGR'd and did have a tuning box fitted although i have taken that off. I'm hoping to get it mapped and a full stainless exhaust system fitted as i'm planning to keep the car for a long time.
I've been quoted £450 fitted for a full system from C + C exhausts in Glasgow, does anyone know of any other suppliers of full systems? Ecotune will do a remap which gives 190 odd bhp, I spoke to someone at Celtic Tuning and they claim 216 bhp from their remap.
So far i'm loving the car, i did a full service a week after i got it (oil and all the filters) and it seems to be running well.
One issue i'll have to look at is the engine vibration, it's not bad but i can feel mild vibes in the cab at all speeds. I drove my mates 320d which is one year newer and his is a fair bit smoother.
I enjoy reading what is a very informative forum.
