  1. I ended up taking it to an independent bmw garage today. The fairly recent (cheapo) radiator was split. As the expansion tank was the original from 2003 I had that changed as well. £327
  2. Ruesta Is the flap and cam on their repair kit aluminium?
  3. Thanks Ibrahim and Davve It's losing a lot of water and I can't really pin down the leak. I ran it for about 5 mins yesterday while parked up and after I switched off I could hear a hissing that seemed to be around the expansion tank area. I did see a tiny, tiny jet of water, but couldn't see the direction it was coming from (expansion tank side or radiator side) I filled it up again this morning before setting off for work and after about 4 miles, the low level light was on again
  4. I'm looking for a good bodyshop to do some work on the rear arches on my compact I'm within travelling distance of Stockport, Manchester and Sheffield Anyone got any recommendations? Thanks
  5. It is a shonky device. Must cost all of about £10 to manufacture. That pin in the flap is a joke. How much are they from a dealers?
  6. Has anyone tried an aftermarket disa valve? I have seen the repair kits as well, but I'm wondering if I should get one from the local bmw dealers?
  7. I've just bought a 325ti sport I was aware it had a water leak, I am pretty sure it's the expansion tank How easy are they to change, and the more important question, how easy is it to bleed after I have changed everything? (I had a nightmare bleeding the system on a mk1 golf years ago) One last question, what is the recommended coolant to use? many thanks
  8. Hi I'm new here I've been looking for a 325ti for a while now, hopefully I'll find something soon that isn't 500 miles away Hope to be an owner soon
