    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...

    Hi all, I took my 190,000 + mile beemer on a 500+ mile round trip from deepest devon to up past Tenby yesterday and it ran faultlessly, pulls like a train, runs perfect and goes like stink.

    Today I changed the water pump on my 2004 330Ci. The coolant that came out shocked me as it is a very dark murky green, almost brown. It is possible that the wrong colour of coolant was added by a garage when my thermostat was changed under warranty in March. There are no other signs of...

    The below screenshot was taken when idle after a short drive to the cashpoint. The readings were stable and weren't all over the place when idle. As you'll see, the desired charge air pressure is actually lower then the actual charge air pressure. What does this mean? Is the reading taken...
