    Hi all, My old compact had power fold mirrors, and they were great as parking on my road is pretty tight, and half the cars on here have duct tape holding their mirrors on. My new compact doesn't have power fold mirrors, just electric heated ones, but theres a pair for sale on eBay, and...

    Hi all, Just bagged myself a 2003 320td SE Compact with 99k on the clock for £900. Needs a bit of TLC and tarting up a bit, but overall it's in pretty incredible condition for £900, i'm very impressed! Everything works as it should, and it drives great, full service history and 2x keys etc...

    I’ve had a compact 320td for years, I love it and it’s hardly given me problems since I’ve had it but it has always seemed down on power. The turbo failed, although I replaced it with a brand new one, I think it was the filter, which I replaced with a vortex type. It has always black smoked on...

    I'm having the swirl flaps deleted and the EGR blanked next week as well as a K&N filter fitted. I'm considering a remap too. What should I expect to achieve from that: in terms of both performance and fuel economy?

    Hello, I bought a right lemon of a Compact last October. The turbo started rattling the day after I bought it and let go four days later. I drove it home 10 miles with a blown turbo, stopping to buy a gallon of oil which I had to pour in after six miles. Half a mile from home it was knocking...

    Hi I've got a bmw e46 320td compact. When i start the car and upon accelerating the turbo does not engage. After a bit of revving the turbo kicks in and continues to work thereafter and the car drives as normal. It does not seem to be linked to engine temperature, simply this revving resolves...

    Hi everyone, I used to have a 1998 325i coupé which I absolutely loved, but it guzzled petrol around town like a thirsty tramp. I then got an MR2 T-bar, which was fun to drive, but the build quality by comparison made it a not very nice place to be sat everything just felt a bit plastic-y. So...

    Hello all, Just bought a 320td auto as a run about but I love it too much already ? I had alot of 'pinking'/ clicking between 2-4k rpm so I thought I would give it a service to see if I can get it running any better. From what I have read on here could be an injector problem. Other than the...

    Hi guys, I have a 320td that takes some cranking to get going. When running, if you take your foot off the accelerator it dies as it refuses to idle, also when you try to drive it, it doesn't want to do anything over 2000rpm under load. I've had BMW scanner 1.4 plugged into it and it came up...

    Hi all, Just wondering, trying to identify which injector maybe be faulty, I decided to disconnect them one by one. Upon doing so the second one in from the back, when disconnected it made no difference to the running of the car. With the others, the car began to struggle. Would that indicate...
