    So here's the basic story. Clutch pedal has been vibrating and generally sounding a bit rough for a week or so, garage diagnose as DMF so book it in for a new DMF/clutch. Day before it's due to go in it breaks down. Stalls with a clunk, no power and towed to the garage. They swap the...

    Hi, just discovered my 318i 2005 80000 miles has a blown head gasket and garage also mentioned something about pulleys, either 1 or 2 need replaced.
