    Hi guys.

    My names rich I'm based in London

    I've just bought a 320d compact 114k on the clock for £2.2k

    Planning on firstly giving it a good service and sorting out the swirl flaps

    Then looking to get;
    HID kit and angel eyes
    Colour coding the trim
    New Alloys
    New Sat Nav/Stereo

    Any advice on owning a BMW would be great!

    Thanks!

    It was through gumtree. Just make sure the turbo isn't whining loudly, check service history and if there's white smoke. Also check the suspension feels tight. And when your test driving it just make sure it pulls well.

    Hi and welcome.

    I also have a 320d compact as a daily.
    If you need any swirlflap blanks let me know and will send you some cheap.

    also make sure the breather filter has been changed recently and clean out the EGR
