    Thinking of buying an 840Ci to replace/retire my 10 year old Scooby, and with a different outlook on driving.

    Gone but not forgotten are my hooligan days (btw I'm 63 years young going on 25 and joined this forum to get an insight into BMW 840's)

    Could do with a little help as Mrs RVM is 5' 2" and me 6' 3" - is there enough adjustment so that we can both get a comfortable drive position?

    Hi to all. I am new to this site but hopefully will be here for a while
    Will try and get picks up soon of the new addition, and will be needing some info on the swirl flap issue.
    Ive managed to get a 2003 car with 78k on the clock, and was wondering if anyone had seen any adverse effects of removing the swirl flaps and fitting blanking plates.

    Also where would people recomend for a after market exhaust for E46 320d, just mainly (sad I know) but i dont like the look of the downward facing exhaust with the sport kit and styling.

    Many thanks to all that reply

    Hi,

    Joined a while a go as found to be very interesting reading a number of the posts on this site and at last its my turn. Bought myself a low mileage (now 86000) 2001, 530i Sport auto last year with full s/h and only 2 previous owners in metallic Oxford green with bespoke interior. Simply put "I LOVE IT"!!!

    However this is my 4th beemer and i'm no beginner. Have lots of DIY over the years but only low key stuff i.e the head gasket blew on my (now sold) 97' 528i and was taken to my local indie to do. Have recently replaced both of the cam shaft position sensors after experiencing stalling problems at round-a-bouts etc and asking my indie to down load engine fault codes. WOW.... what a difference. Seems that one or both of the sensors must have been playing up originaly as now the engine response to accelerator movement has greatly increased, gear change of auto box vastly smoother AND quicker to drop down a gear in response to pedal movement and accelaration improved. Which has led me to ask - can I improve it even further with an ECU remap? After considerably more reading the answer is yes but not as much as a diesel - not that bothered as I like my revs - sorry to those of us with diesels

    Can anybody here recommend a good place in or local to north london that can help with a good quality remap?

    Many thanks for any help and hope that I can contribute in small way to this excellent site in the future.

    Hi,

    I've just recently joined the forum, after buying a 2000, 320d touring. Really like the car, but unfortunately sold a bit of a pup by the dealer, despite having a new MOT I have had the spend another £700 on new brake pads and disks, anti rollbar links and bushes, handbrake shoes/kit, brake flush - some of these they were surprised at as they are MOT failures. The dealer did change the rear diff and propshaft as they were a problem - but too over 4 weeks to do the car and return the car, although during the service they commented on the very dirty oil in the diff.... and the dealer who sold the car doesn't seem interested.

    Hopefully this is the worst over, though there are other things I need to get sorted - MPG is low and car running quite cool, windows randomly opening and closing, heater blows hot all the time... one day I'm sure it will all be sorted with the help of bimmerforums :-)

    Adrian
