Hi guys,

Im very close to buying a 2005 320cd convertible with about 70 k miles on the clock.

I have just been reading up on the common faults from the diesel engines here http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f3/bmw-e46-diesel-info-t5537/

However it seems to suggest that an 05 plate car with a 2 litre diesel engine, should have all the uprated parts. Is this the case, or should I still be worried about getting all these things changed?

Also what are bmw likely to call the oil breather, so that I can look for this on the service history to see if it has been changed at any point?

thanks in advance

ok maybe this needs checking then,


just out of interest though, what do BMW officially call this part? I am going to look through the service records and receipts to see if they changed it in the last service. If they did change it back in October 2008, is it right to assume this was for the new 'vortex' type?

Cheers
