    BMW 320d Touring
  1. I had the expansion tank of my 2003 (117,000) E46 Touring changed (after reading a few scare stories about them failing. Garage said there was nothing wrong with it. There is a heated debate going on about the subject on E46 fanataics. Here's a taster: 01-12-2019, 04:52 PM #19 OnTheFence Registered User Join Date: Jan 2012 Location: NY Posts: 1,815 My Ride: 2001 330i (and 530i) View My Garage My e39 it's on the original expansion tank at 170k miles. Replace my E46 expansion tank at a 100k miles.. and it was perfect brand new looking.. waste of time and money Cooling system paranoid ...a lot of Internet forum hype craziness. If it ain't broke don't fix it and if you bust a pipe .pull over and get towed. big deal __________________ 0714,0171: It was the MAF. NOT intake boots. NOT vacuum lines.

  2. New expansion tank and boost pipe (for an E46 52 reg).
  3. I had a basic oil service a last month (on the advice of the main mechanic at a local indy dealer). The previous two years I opted for an Inspection II. (My car is a 320d SE Touring, with 116,000 miles on the clock. It has a full service history, having previously being owned by my sister from new; Mar 2003 - Aug 2012, followed by me; Aug 2012 to the present day).
  4. That link has been hijacked. It has nothing to do with thule bike racks.
  5. Gave my leather seats a clean and (autoglym leather balm) treatment. It'll look a lot better after a few more treatments.
  6. My car was built in Dec 2002, but sold in Feb 2003.
  7. As of yesterday; 112,999 (2002, 320d SE Touring).
  8. Glen, slow down and think about what you're going to type. It's difficult reading your post, as it appears to be one extremely long sentence. It would make easier reading if you added commas and full-stops in the appropriate areas. Just image that you were talking to someone; there would be natural pauses in your speech. Very long sentences can be it awkward for an individual to read, leading them to either partially, or at worse, not completely read what you have typed. Just sayin'.
  9. It is smooth and I'm pleased. However, I must admit, I don't drive a lot; maybe 3,000 - 4,000 miles per year.
  10. I had my clutch, DMF and propshaft rubber joint replaced today. Also had an Inspection II, MOT and new front wiper blades.
  11. I had an independant dealer do it for me. They couldn't source a used one, so I had to pay full price. They would have been cheaper than the main BMW place.
