    Been lurking for a few weeks, had a 54 plate 316i sport in Silver / Grey for about a month now and liking it.
    Not got many plans other than drive it really and look after it.
    First jobs were Parrot install and AUX in lead, also removed the CDV.

    1 question, how do I know what engine I have, the seller said it was E46, but from what I read it could be a N42?

    Hi Nick and welcome to the forum

    Your e46 316 will have either the N40 or N45 depending on the build date, the N45 was from March 2004

    The N42 was the 318i engine

    "O" and picks please, also any plans in the pipe line


    BMW its an addiction, Its a drug

    Looks like I'll be N45 then!



    Not a lot of plans really, had the lower arm bushes done, shaved the alcantara, hoovered out the dog hair, got some new mats, replaced a bit of damaged carbon cube trim, given it a polish etc etc!

    We bought a bigger car for my wife, so this I the first time I've had an older one, went for the smaller engine as my average to and from work is 30mph and the tax and insurance was better plus the sport spec was what I was after.
