  10. Looking at buying 2010 320D EfficientDynamics but worried about Timing Chain issues

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi The last BMW I owned was a 2004 320D M-Sport which had the M47 engine in and I never had any problems with this at all. It's been a few years since I owned a BMW but I thought I would be safe going for the equivalent aged 3 series but I'm really worried about the N47 timing chain issues...

  15. 320d EfficientDynamics: Standard tyres or runflats option.

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I'm configuring a 320d EfficientDynamics (ED) on the BMW UK web site, and am puzzled by the tyre options. For all 3-ers except the ED, runflats appear to be standard. (Much-debated already it seems). However, for the ED (only), runflat tyres are an option (around GBP 200). Does the standard ED...

    Hi, I’m looking at buying my first BMW and have my sights set on a BMW 320D EfficientDynamics 2011 (60 plate). I’ve been scouring the forums and read a few horror stories on swirl flaps. What I’m not sure of though is does the 2011 N47 still have swirl flaps and if so are they now of a solid...
