    Hi everyone.
    I have been scanning around the forum looking for guides and information etc.

    Having spent my life growing up around BMWs I have now reached the time that I can purchase my own.
    I'm looking at the E46 325i cabriolet, but am at the begining of my hunt!

    Can anyone point me to useful links / threads on this site for buyers guides, comon faults, realist MPGs (not book values) etc, etc.

    I want to find a really good one that will last me!

    Look forward to being a part of the community as it looks like a great place.

    Cheers,

    Phil

    Thanks, is there a guide that has been put together?
    I'm aware of snapping rear coils and bent arms on the hood as common points of failure having looked through.
    The rest seems like normal wear and tear issues that I have seen?
