    Hi guys rethead as was posted in the wrong place.
    Hows it going? The other half bought a 320dse e46 02 plate in silver (VERY NICE CAR TO DRIVE) Can some of you guys tell me what to look out for (FAULTS) as i dont know much about them.

    It has done 120k miles and seems to run great but just needing to know what to look out for.

    Is there any one on here from the Aberdeen area?

    I will try to upload pics letter on as it was just cleaned yesterday and i got some good pics but will upload tomorow.

    Thanks.

    Lossiemouth, Morayshire!

    Can't help with what to look out for, though.

    Welcome to the forum, mate!

    Hi Ronnie26,Welcome to bimmerforums.co.uk..........

    You want to do a search for swirl flaps and turbos as these are prone areas on Diesels.If your car still has swirl flaps then I would look into having them removed Also there were a few problems with subframe tearing

    Don't know anyone through the Aberdeen way, to be honest. There are some members on the forum from that way, though.

    If you open a thread in the Scottish meets section for a mini-meet, you'll maybe have some luck. We also have a recently opened thread gauging interest for a meet in the next couple of months in Scotland somewhere.

    The last one was on the 13th of February; not many turned up due to it being valentines on the 14th, but 4 of us did!

    When I go to Aberdeen, it'll literally be to pick up my bumper only; I'll be working on a time-limit so no time to stop for any length of time unfortunately.

    I'd be happy to attend Aberdeen meets, though!

    I had one for about a week while the BMW was off-road. Horribly slow. Had a lot of potential, though!

    Look forward to meeting you in future, then!

    Have a look at the National Meets too; I'm planning on making the trip to Bimmerflex on July 4th!
