    iv been flying through here for months so thought id get and take advantage of some amazing mechanics on here, im dame, from Bristol and i just bought a E46 318i se on a S reg so the first kind, 4 cylider m43 engine, 190,000 mile :O !i know! the price reflects it ,

    ive give it an engine flush, oil,oil filter change, changed the spark plugs cleaned maf sensor and most electrical componants and connects have been cleaned, cleaned water tank inside and out an its filters, and checked fuel and air filters, more a less cleaned it inside out with a toothbrush including the engine, fixed the handbrake ' yes ppl my 1998 has now got a handbrake that WORKS'

    iv got a few problems i think its a combination off o2 sensor and the maff,

    it doesnt idle so well and is not very powerful seems at about 4000 revs if i let of the gas it goes a lil faster ??? irish. i cleaned the maf it seemed to help a lil, when i took the maf off, it went like a rocket, im thinking of putting a button in the dash to turn the maf on and off.

    i think the propshaft coupling has gone as it knocks when i put it in first without the engine even on, somtimes,
    i took 02 sensors out, the ones on the cat and there dead.
    i also think that my cat may be blocked as iv seen it glow red after a hard night out,

    and its blowing somewhere ive check all along the exaust but its deffinatly more from the engine, im thinking manifold hole or gasket??

    any way thats me and my car and thats all that counts, meet you lot soon
