    Hi guys

    Just want to say hello, I am a first time BMW owner and really don't know why I didn't get 1 sooner! Just brought a 330 ci on a 54 plate.

    After buying the car I read about some problems on the rear end with some kind of cracking? Mainly on earlier models, should I be concerned? If so what am I looking for?

    Also bit of a daft question, when I go to pull off the back end drops a fair bit when I release the handbrake, is this normal?

    Cheers in advance guys

    Nick

    Hi Nick and welcom to the forum

    Some photo's would go a long way......

    The cracking issue was with earlier models and it was the rear sub frame, as for the hand brake issue, it will drop slightly if you have it on and trying to pull away.

    Us more experienced drivers hold the clutch in the right place and pull away smoothly

    The 330 face lift is a nice looking coupe so have fun and enjoy, do you have any plans?


    BMW its an addiction, Its a drug

    No mate no real plans, love the car as it is but I am sure as time goes on I will start changing a few bits.

    I changed the grilles to black but that's about it really.
