    Just bought an E46 2.0 D Touring. It's a 2003 in silver and looks like new.Never had a BM before and think I could be converted forever. I'll see how the ownership costs pan out over the next couple of years! Had it a month and we've already been to south west France. 356miles eachway and we didn't even stop for the loo - it just wants to keep going. Lovely and quiet and averaged 52mpg at 80mph all the way (most of the time).
    Thanks to this forum I've done the swirl-valve mod and replaced the oil breather with the new type centrifugal type so have got peace of mind.
    One question for now though - the next 'Inspection' is 9000+ miles away. How do I know if it's an Inspection 1 or 2? It's done 69000 miles and last oil service and pollen filter was done 3000 miles ago in April. Shall I just get BOTH inspections done for peace of mind?
    Also, how are these Inspection/oil service captions cleared after carrying out the jobs?

    Great site and thanks for any help.

    If the last insp was a 1 then it will be a insp 2 this time

    If the last insp was a 2 then it will be a 1 this time

    If you don't know what it was just have a insp 2 done to make sure
