New 318d m sport business edition

Hello everyone,


I bought a 318d m sport business edition 5 weeks ago, I was a little worried about day to day performance having previously owned a 130i,120d and a e90 320d but as it turns out its fine. I will post a few pictures once I have some.


Cheers,


Ben.

Hi, newbie here...picked up my 330d M Sport last week. Sparkling graphite, a lot of options, 57k miles and Fsh

7 self indulgent photos taken with an extremely rubbish iphone 3gs. Hope you don't mind.

Morning all.

Mike here, from Newcastle. Had my 320i for 6 weeks, loved most of it (bit underpowered) but its just a step to a 330 which i'll be looking at next year when my bonus come through and then maybe a 335i the year after

Would love some input on this thread if anyone has any experience with N46 timing chain issues.

Thanks.

Morning....
Tony, Northwest (Wigan)....
Picked up my LMB 330d M Sport a couple of weeks ago..


Having been an owner of a 204hp 330d Sport and an E39 530d Sport, it was business as usual going back to the relatively lazy 3 litre train engine, with tweak more power. Enjoying it so far, it does have a few small niggles as it's a 2006 however i'm normally pretty good at the basics (deflapped both my other diesels) and can service cars myself. I've already ordered and received an emulator from Italy to fool the ELV, when the steering lock fault appears. I'm aware my car has had this fault already, very early in its life. I'm sure if I get any gremlins, you guys will be a plethera of help to assist me enjoy it further. Look forward to posting and helping others when required...
My 530d had almost 200k miles on it before I moved it on!



It was probably the best car I've ever owned, so the E90 has alot to live up to.
My 330d Sport was a low miles minter....

But I was never in love with it.... it felt a bit lacking in character, which the 5er had oodles of.
Onwards and upwards with the newer 330d M Sport.

Really like some of the cool gadgets, like the bmw professional radio and the led lights under door handles.

I'm easily pleased.

Hi guys - newbie

Hi guys

Just got my first BMW 320i M Sport Coupe

I've heard the engines are not great but how are they in your experience?

I have a couple of questions

1. I have had h8 bulbs to replace they yellow Halogen lights in the front and the light error message has come on. I am going to go back to the person who fitted them but will the light cause the car any trouble?

2. I want to change the interior lights, please can you tell me which led fitments fit the main dome, map lights and footwell? Are they 501's or a different size.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Thanks in advance

Turns out they had just put a 18 inch scratch down the bonnet while it was getting polished up.
So I've had to come away with a courtesy car and a big pet-lip while they re-spay the bonnet

Can anyone clear up this one question, is the 320 the same as the 318 apart from the obvious CC size?
When I've been looking for accessories on the web alot of places don't list the 318 they all seem to start from the 320??

Cheers.
The 318 engine is just a detuned 320 so still a 2.0 litre

Evening All!

Picked up my 335i Touring about 4 weeks ago now from Jason Barker @ Birds garage. Looked for one for the best part of 6 months and when this one came up I just had to have it.

Going to put up a build thread shortly as it it hasn't and certainly won't be staying standard!!

Any members in the Newbury/Reading area?

Cheers

Smile Hello

Picked up my 2008 e92 335i from Bavarian Belfast (thanks Chris!) 6 months ago and have been loving it ever since. Used this forum to browse for advice so far, so thought I'd better say thanks and hi!

Hi guys,

Potential new bmw owner from Adelaide, Australia.

I joined cause initially I want to query dealer pricing, especially on outgoing E93 cabrio versions because the new 4 series will replace it.

Dealers just dont seem to want to budge from sticker price. What gives

New to the forum BMW 335i coupe owner

Hi, been watching the forum since buying my pre-reg'd E92 at the beginning of last year. Now thought it was time to say hello and start participating in the chats now that I've lost the BMW virgin tag.

Hi lads and ladies, I have frequently been on this particular forum but never actually posted.
I have owned my AutoVogue E92 325I SE for a few months now but unfortunately I have to sell it.

However I will be purchasing a 335i when I receive my 5 years ncd next May =]

If you have any advice or suggestions please message me.

My car is currently advertised on ebay and I would love any feedback you guys can give me.



Regards,
Rikki

Hi all,

New to BMW's and just upgraded to a 335d e91, thought I'd better say hello.

No plans just yet, just keeping it clean and getting used to the power but in time plan to get it re-mapped and get the stereo upgraded.

Cheers

Ollie

Hi there from Belfast

Just bought this 330i from an independent in Cardiff, it's my 7th BMW but first e90. I also have a 205 gti which has been my daily for the last 3 years while the wife has a volvo xc90.

I've bought the lip spoiler from those boys on eBay so should get that next week, also got some new wheel centres and m badges as the current ones were tatty. Want to get a rear defuser and black grills next.
