yes yes manne
glad to see so many south africans on the forum and even some of the fanatics guys!
i posted a similar thread on fanatics this morning
basically the time has come for me to say goodbye to my beloved e46 and get an e90
i test drove one on the weekend and lets just say i was absolutely blown away loved the drive handling and power
im looking to get a 2nd hand 330i manual with some millage (around 150-170k)
ive owned my e46 for 5 years and its just about to hit the 300k mark. repairing and servicing the car has been done by myself and has been a nice car to work on and parts have been easily available and cheap can get most of what i need without going to stealership
basically id like to know what parts availability and pricing would be like on a e90 330? are they easily available or would a lot of it still be agents only?
also what are common issues and what can i be expecting to replace with that type of millage? i know waterpump and thermostat should be due
any other advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated id just like to know what id be getting myself into
