    Hi Everybody!

    My name is Nil and i just swapped my 206 GTI 138 for a BMW E46 318i....

    main reason for swap was because i needed a bigger car because of children.

    Now i dont no much about BMW's, the only thing i no or hope is that its more reliable than the 206 was!

    Along side the car came the MOT cert with a few Advisorys, and my question was are these that bad?

    1.Air Bag Light On Dash (From what ive seen this is a common problem?)

    2. Slight Bad Earth on OSR Light Cluster..Which i believe is causing a light to come on on the dash..a Red LED that looks like a light?

    3. Exh/Gear Box Bracket broken

    4.Both Rear shock absorber plastic shrouds insecure

    5. Rubber boot split on OSF lower anti roll bar drop link

    Exscuse me on this...as im not to sure if these are problems to be worried about or not?

    Many Thanks In Advance.

    I would have thought at least 2 of those advisories would be a failure.
