I have read a bit about the blanking plugs I'm an engineer so will do it myself but have heard mention that there are 2 size's any guesses which ones are fitted to my one?....Oh and the crank breather any recomendation's for parts suppliers?
Might even be able to help you with blank sizes...
You'll need the smaller size swirl flap blanks and ebay seller sparkesandnoise are still the only vendor to supply blanks and new viton o-rings in the price.
As said vortex oil separator is available form the Bimmerforums shop at Hereford BMW BMW part no.11127799367.
When you test drive the car ensure it doesn't smoke too much, look for steering and suspension components receipts as
the wishbone bushes are a common fail but not too bad @£60 for replacements.
If the car tramlines severely check the wear level and brand of the front tyres, they can be sensitive to cheap chinese tyres (ditchfinders!)
Trawl through the service history and receipts looking for regular oil and filter changes.
If you do buy it theres a fantastic set of pictorial 'How To' guides, to help keep the engine in top condition, right here at BFuk.
GL Paul and I hope its what you're looking for.
Cheers mate am really looking forward to having a decent car again....Its been a while!
Think it depends on the map u get as u can get one just for power n one for mpg and then there's the one for best of both worlds
Glad to see your pleased with the new motor Paul
Are you suffering with any other symptoms regarding performance, like flat spots, hesitation on acceleration or poor idling?
It doesn't seem to be hesitation as its only when the engine is at a low RPM as soon as it starts getting over 1500rpm it pulls like a train and revs really easy....Its going to the garage on Thursday for an oil and filter change, The swirl valves and the Vortex breather if all the bits turn up on time!....Idles fine tho with no rattles and doesn't seem to have any flat spots but I don't want to give it the full monty until I get those bits done!
