Hi, I'm looking to get back in a BMW this year and I've got my heart set on a 330ci, budget 2 to 3 grand. I had a black 2 door E30 325 bored out to 2.7, LSD, M Tech bodkit, Alpina wheels etc back in the day and really need some RWD action back in my life

I've been reading up on the E46 and I've a couple of questions regarding the vanos unit. When buying, what's the best way to spot vanos problems and what would a re-conditioned unit cost?

I fairly experienced with cars and forums and look forward to joining in on this one

Regards to all
