    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd put my hand up, recently acquired a 530D Sport Auto with 72k miles on the clock. Its all in pretty good condition, servicing all up to date, needs a little paint here and there. Drives very well and pretty quick considering I came from a Subaru Impreza, it was time to grow up I was told I've read a few threads on the site that mention things to look out for or get modified etc. Could anyone bottom line it for me and specify what would be a good place to start checking, for example the thermostat issues, what is correct temps etc, and so on and so on. Thanks guys look forward to hearing about all the problems to keep an eye on.

    aye up lad welcome. I too am looking into buying a 530d, I'm after a touring for the new expected arrival.... bambino o'clock. Think the 530d has more power and a shed more torque than a standard preza so not surprised u don't feel it slow specially without the 4x4 drag. I've heard bad things about the auto g/box and chipping but need to fully investigate. I mod everything I own so I'll be hoping to map or chip the 530d once it arrives. I went from a 500bhp modded s4 to a 320i touring conversion to m3 specs. love the bm feel, losing 200bhp was well worth it on the track. I'll be watching this thread hoping for for info around the 530d 10-4 over and out
