    Hi, i thought i would post on here and say hello!

    I've just joined up as i am due to go and have a look at a 2002 330ci Sport Convertible (manual) this afternoon and all being well i will be driving it home as a BMW owner! I always join owner clubs of the cars or bikes i own and this seemed to be the biggest forum!

    Its sitting at 98,000miles with full service history, HK sound system, full black leather, it seems quite well specd. Is there anything that i should look out for as common faults etc? Also do they all have bluetooth? I think this one has the tape deck in the dash and CD changer in the boot.

    Cheers, Richard

    check suspension inded at that mileage if it hasn't been done it will probably need new bushes and shocks. check cd player works often they don't. check its had water pump and expansion tank replaced if not budget for these. Check for easy gear selection especially on the fifth to third downshift if it is imprecise it needs the springs on the top of the gearbox replacing which is a big job labour wise. as its a convertible check for any signs of water ingress.
