    I've owned my F31 for a year now. It's a 17 plate but I am noticing two of the diamond cut 403M wheels are starting to corrode around the centre caps. I bought the car mainly because it was an M sport and had the look I wanted so I am really pissed off that such a young car will need a wheel...

    Hi all, I'm giving some serious thought to buying an E9x 335d. My budget would limit me to around a 2008ish 80-100k car. I know that the 335d is a complex engine so to cover myself I'd like to take out a warranty. Has anyone taken out a warranty with a company they would really recommend? Thanks
