    Hi All,

    I have been hovering in these boards for a while now whilst waiting to get my new toy

    This Saturday I picked up an N Reg BMW 328i Sport with factory m-spec kit and LSD. I purchased from a friend for what I think is the bargain price off £750 The 250mile trip was a blast, I have definitely made the right choice, what a car. Got back using just under half a tank as well, bonus. Although the rest of the tank went in under 150 miles due to a heavy right foot.

    I am planning to call BMW to get the service history and spec as this is missing, but for the price and as a project I don't mind so much. Could do to know if the engine was done though.

    Well I will be starting a journal entry with pics in the near future but from what I can see the following is need of attention so could do with some advice to the order and how to fix some of these issues:-

    Issues
    - Electrical Drain (I think it's fuse 33, could be the alarm?)
    - Bodywork (bonnet flaking, badge missing, rear arches rusting)

    Niggles
    - Passenger seat release cable broken
    - Windows bind a bit so auto-close doesn't work
    - Something is catching in the steering column
    - Spare key required

    MOT Advisory
    - Front wheel bearing has slight play
    - Slight play in front lower ball joints
    - Corrosion to front suspension
    - Signs of wear in the steering column coupling
    - Slight corrosion to front brake pipes
    - Corrosion to rear wheel arches

    Pics:-






    Bad bits :(





    Any help and advice is appreciated

    Scott

    Welcome to the forum Scott

    A good choice if i may say so

    Be prepared to spend a few quid as these cars are getting to the age where a few bits will need replacing, But you can find out anything on this forum and there are loads here who are keen to help

    Just ask away mate

    Hi,

    Due to a change in circumstance, the BMW has to go.

    I will be putting on ebay next month, but realistic offers are welcome or ideas of what I can get for this.

    If you want any info please let me know.

    Scott.
