    Welcome mate

    Friend of mine has a 320d compact - currently on 142k still pulls lovely and excellent return on MPG (circa 52mpg as he does good runs for work).

    I believe swirl flaps can can be an issue. Have a search in the e46 section I found loads out in there for him

    Welcome to bimmerforums

    Most BMW engines are still strong at that mileage.
