    Hi everyone,

    First BMW, first posting!
    Just got hold of a 1999 323i coupe auto with fsh and 95K for £1750. Thought that was a lot of car for the money to be honest but correct me if I'm wrong.
    As with all things, got a few little niggles. The blower seems very weak and I intend to remove the pollen filter to try and improve matters. Only thing is, where the hell is it?
    Secondly, have a little issue with starting, either from cold or hot. It never fails to fire but requires just a little throttle as if it has lost a little fuel pressure or needs a second to drag fuel in. Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Also, the odometer/trip meter is very hard to read as if the bulb/led (not sure whats behind it) has failed. It can be made out in the dark with lights on but in daylight there is almost nothing there. At first I thought it was a little dodgy but seeing as I have every single old MOT certificate, the mileage seems genuine. Again any ideas would be appreciated.
    Finally, advice on what to watch for with these cars. Never had a BMW before so totally green. All seems to be well with mine at the mo other than the above. Brake discs look almost new so assume they have been replaced at some stage, engine runs very quiet and smooth once going and gears seem to change well even though it does seem to hang on a while before dropping into top around 50mph on a medium throttle (is that normal?).

    Anyway, thanks for reading.

    Paul
