Also worth remembering to get the full power from the DISI engine you need to run Super Unleaded. The 330i runs just fine on standard fuel.

I'm with dopper99 - Get an e46 M3 if you can stretch that far... amazing value cars . + The tax is only 270 IIRC
Yes, I always used the higher octane fuels... made a massive difference.

Another characteristic of the engine was white smoke when sitting in a lot of traffic for too long... it was nothing wrong with car though.

Mine was black... I can email you photos if you like. It was really a smart car and definitely underrated. I do miss it's sure-footedness.

PM me your email address if you want photos, or the Reg number.
