    Hi all.

    I'm new to the forum,and just thought i'd introduce myself.Name's rich

    I picked my new daily driver up on saturday...a very clean,well looked after
    e46 320d.I'm pretty happy with it so far,apart from slight overcooling and a bit of a clunk from the back on throttle on/off but thats easily sorted.

    Here it is....








    And my other toy....




    200bhp

    thanks,rich

    P.S sorry for the small pics.

    Welcome to the forums and welcome to BMW! Don't want to worry you, but I'd get that clunk checked out. Early E46s have a rep for tearing the sub frame mount, and I'd hate for that to be the case for you!

    Well,i got the car on the ramp today and all seems fine.I was really relieved to be honest to find that the whole of the underside was in pretty good condition.

    I'm thinking the thud may just be a bit of play in the diff,as all of the rear bushes seemed fairly good.

    I need to have an in depth look over the whole car really,but im happy that it wasnt the subframe mounting points at fault.
