I'm new to BMW and to forums. Yours looks really interesting and helpful. Apologies in advance for any newb mistakes... in time I hope to be able to contribute some good photo illustrations of things I sort out.
Recently got a 2003 320td SE in black from an auction after my old Audi had to be pensioned off to the scrappy. Really like the look and ride of the new car. Not a bad price/condition but there's a few things that need sorting... thus far I've had wishbone bushes, full set of pads and discs and an oil pump...
Next on the list is rear wash wipe (of course), faint whiff of diesel (i think this is because the previous owner did not see the benefit of a cabin filter) and a couple of minor interior items. Will get these to the appropriate forums
Looking forward to being a member and getting my new car ship shape!
