Is the problem still apparant in later model 320's or with low mileage or could i see the same faults?
Its also an auto im looking at as opposed the my current 320 which is a manual. Is there any issues with the auto box i should be worried about.
My car is a 58 plate LCI 318i, only 27k on it and I've owned it from new. I've never experienced the engine management light. However, up until I got the last set of injectors, coils and spark plugs in September 2011, I was experiencing a lack of power and mis-fires very regularly. Touch wood, the car has been OK since last September, it gets serviced this week and, as mentioned will get another set of coils under warranty at the same time.
Mine's a manual so I cannot really comment about the auto box.
