    Hi folks,

    Alex from staffordshire here.

    Going to look at a loveelly 2001 330i coupe on thursday.

    Iv had a colourful past with cars including at one point an e36 325i which was just too fun! But at the time fund just were lacking for the petrol consumption so had to go!

    Iv done all the formalities like check HPI and all that jazz and everything seems hunky-dory.

    Just like to know common faults to look out for and how to know if things arent so good etc, the car looks very tidy indeed and has FSH, 110k, full black leathers, Msport bodykit, X6 alloys, looks the dogs danglies but what to look for under skin?

    Im doing a 350mile round trip to view this beast so I want to make sure I dont end up with a dud, Im not a complete noob to cars but when it comes to BMWs im not over clued up.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and hope to be posting some lovely pics this time next week

    Thanks, in advance!

    Thanks :-)

    Had a look, Some good info.

    Nothing really about what to look out for when buying though.

    Anybody else? :-D

    check for rust on front and rear inner arches, stick your head under and have a look.

    check the rear brake pipes, can see them through the rear wheels if you have a light.

    check the condition of the brake discs and pads while your there too.

    look for signs of coolant loss, check rad, water pump, header tank, thermostat housing.

    Got the beast!!

    Couple of minor things need sorting but overall... Mint.

    Where can I get a cheap CD changer cartridge for it? haha

    The 350 mile round trip was well worth it, even though most of the way back was traffic jams!
