    Hi

    I am new to this site and am looking to change my 3 year old Audi A3 for a BMW 330D. The car i have in mind is a 330d Sport Auto Tiptronic on a 2002 51 Plate. I am new to BMW ownership and would like to know what people think of this car. It is quite a high mileage car - 110k. It has full black leather interior. What should i look for when buying and are there any common faults. The cars is up for about 6k

    Thanks in advance
    Wads

    Welcome to the forum. In regards to the car purchase, have a look at the service history book and make some calls to the dealers that are in the book to make sure it all tally's up. My own 2003 e46 330D has 102K on the clock but I was lucky enough to find out that it has had a new gearbox about 15K ago and literally about 2K ago a new inlet manifold! The previous owner was a mechanic and has checked EVERYTHING on this car! So just check everything and everywhere you can.

    Many thanks for all your help. I have heard the auto boxes on these can be a problem over 100k. Does anyone know anything about this?

    If you start a new thread OR continue one on in the General BMW Discussions section then we will help out where we can,

    Introductions is purely just for that , keeps all the info in one place so it's easier to find.

    Im in a similar position

    Want to buy a 330d saloon but they are so expensive. The ones less than £5k all have 100k plus miles and I've heard these problems about flaps and turbos going..

    Any advice??
