  1. I would get it up on a ramp and get those under trays off, that's not from the rad/expansion tank area so likely a failed hose or clip or something? Either way getting those covers off and the car in the air will help you find is much easier.
  2. Have you checked voltages? Bosch S5 batteries had lots of recalls recently.. Replaced mine at the beginning of 2019 because it stopped holding charge. Admittedly mine was 5 years old (and 3 months, so JUST outside of the warranty). I went with Yuasa.
  3. Shame, but understandable.
  4. How wide? You might need an arch roll and camber arms..
  5. Did you replace discs with new? That's the most common culprit of this issue.. Then shocks.. But you said you replaced them too so yeah must be bushes. Get it up on a ramp and check for play
  6. http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/64116956319/ Same part regardless of engine.. I would say the breaker advertising it doesn't know what they're talking about
  7. Could be clutch release bearing?
  8. Looks it, open it up and have a look? See if the gasket is crushed and just fit a new one anyway.
  9. Tbh for the price of all of that, it's just not worth it. Not sure how much a lightweight flywheel would be for one of them, but if it's not stock - probably a fair bit more than it's worth (as in how much performance you'd get). 330i engine/gearbox can be bought for £5-600.. It's worth going that route if anything. BUT then again - if it's going to cost ~£1000 total then why not get rid and just buy a 330i? Otherwise i'd leave it stock and enjoy it for what it is tbh.. It's not worth messing with..
  10. Get on Facebook and find Glen B Wilding from GKR Performance for the tuning. For the clutch there's a guy called Matt Berry. You may need to go single mass flywheel, he also does paddle clutch kits for the power
  11. He's not been on the forum since 2015.. Really not worth remapping a 318i though tbh.. Save your money

    If you're unsure, keep looking. It's not as if they're rare. Finding one in good condition might be though! lol. Keep looking if there's any doubt..
  13. Expansion tank is a common failure but that looks like it's coming from the top of the rad. So probably new rad and expansion tank needed. While you're there you may as well replace the hoses.
  14. If you can stretch to a facelift i'd go for that.. Even if you have to wait and save a little. The boot floors are made of cheese in the earlier models and can crack. Later ones can still crack too but it's much less common. Everything else is repairable within reason. But those MOT advisories - seems like an anal tester (ooh err) there! I'd have knocked that tester over the head for noting some of those! Prat.. lol
  15. What colour smoke? Does diesel fuel go off? I'm sure there's extra crud in the tank that you might have forced through. Would've at least changed the fuel filter before that first startup just incase. Then maybe change it again in a few k.
