    I have been keeping an eye on "blowing" and economy threads relating to the new B47 engine. After nearly 18 months, I consider myself fortunate to have experienced none of the blowing issues reported and have never been aware of the car regenerating (hopefully it is!).

    I purchased my 318 last month for £1500. It has 102k on the clock and is a 2001 1.9L model. However the car has given me problems since I purchased and I need advice on whether I should just sell it as scrap now and move on. The engine noise is quite loud and there is a engine rattle on low...

    On my 6 month old BMW 320d, on three of the four wheels there is rust visible on the wheel axle drums, as I look through the spokes. I didn't notice this at the time of purchase. Should I be worried about this on such a new car?
