    Update on the 330d F30

    Thanks lads, I’ll certainly put all of this to them. I’m gutted as I really like the car, it’s a stunning looking vehicle but I’m not prepared to take it back unless the alloys are replaced or at least repaired so that the vibration goes. As a family we are going Cornwall the end of July, will be a 900 miles round trip, I’m not looking to put my family’s safety in jeopardy at any cost....

    Update on the 330d F30

    So I dropped my F30 330d into the local main dealers yesterday. As you know, there was a noise from the turbo that didn’t sound normal, I could occasionally smell fumes on a cold start and at motorway speeds there was a rumble/vibration. So I had a voicemail from them today regarding an update. They had to replace the EGR cooling pipe. The vibration is down to a slightly buckled OSF alloy wheel and NSR alloy wheel which is what is causing a vibration, they balanced the wheels and this is what they found. The technician said the loud blowing noise from the turbo was normal yet the technician last week said it wasn’t right and had to be looked at. They finished the voicemail to say the car is ready to be collected. Now Iv had the car 3 weeks tomorrow, covered about 250 miles in total. It’s obvious to me that the car hasn’t been fully road tested before it was put on sale otherwise the vibration would have been obvious. So what do I do and what are my rights? I’m going to tell them that they need to replace the two buckled wheels, from a legal standing do they have to do this?

    F30 330d Question...

    In fairness bud, the last few Mercs I had had been brilliant. I bought an E350 CDi Coupe a year ago from Mercedes in Stockport. Two months in the car wouldn’t start. Mercedes came out to my house, the car was taken away to the nearest dealership, Mercedes provided a similar model car from Enterprise for two weeks whilst the car was having the work done. They dropped my car off and took away the loan car. I am hoping BMW step up to the mark though I know I won’t be getting a courtesy car

    F30 330d Question...

    Unless they sort it lads they can have it back. I also found in the leather wallet in the glove box that it had been damaged repaired at a BMW approved dealer..... Feeling a tad annoyed at the minute

    F30 330d Question...

    Well my hunch was right. I took it into my local bmw dealer last week. One of the technicians had a look at it. He opened the bonnet, told me to give it some gas. His response was ‘I don’t even need to give it a test drive as that high pitched noise isn’t right.’ It’s therefore booked in to get checked over. Iv also noticed on the motorway at 65MPH plus I can hear a rumbling noise. At first I thought it was just the run flats but my mates car, almost identical has no such noise. I also noticed this morning when I started it from cold, I could smell fumes inside the car. Something else I’m going to mention to them. Im a tad pissed off as you would think the car would have had a thorough road test to check any potential issues. Let’s hope they sort it otherwise they can have the car back..

    CLS55 AMG

    Iv had a few Mercs lads, I did have a C55 AMG, same engine as the CLS 55 but without a supercharger. Engine and gearbox are bulletproof in these cars. The SBC pump will need replacing at some point, budget £1000-£1200 thereabouts. The car has air suspension, if any of it fails you’re looking at a £1000 per corner for a new airmatic pump. Discs and Pads are very reasonable. Electrics can fail, check absolutely everything on them. I almost bought one but running one put me off. I will have one at some point I’m sure but my F30 330d is belting so far

    Looking for a weekend convertible?

    What year is it? 2006-2008 models had the balance shaft problem. Warning sign is the EML coming on, it’s a new engine if this fails...later 08-09 models were fine

    Thinking on selling E60 535D

    Looks a lovely looking car. Unless it’s costing you a fortune I’d keep it

    F30 330d Question...

    Maybe abuse was the wrong term. My cars are always upto temperature before id consider driving them hard. My question is, these 3 litre diesel units are pretty robust? Thankfully, I cant find very much online about problems with them. Anyways, thank you and I am glad to be back in the BMW fold my friends

    F30 330d Question...

    Ahh well it’s under a BMW used car warranty so I’m not too worried about that. Can these engines take abuse? Not that I’m into thrashing my cars all the time but it’s nice to give it the beans every now and then

    F30 330d Question...

    Thats fair enough but my E350 didn’t make any such noise neither have any of my other diesels in the past....you can’t hear any turbo whistle it’s just a loud blowing noise

    F30 330d Question...

    Not at all but after spending over £15k on a car I need to make sure it’s running right? I thought that’s what this forum was about....getting advice and solving problems?

    F30 330d Question...

    If their was a leak somewhere would it result in the car running rough? It is really loud though that’s what got me wondering what it was...

    F30 330d Question...

    Im going to speak to the dealer on Monday and get it booked in just to check all the hoses/pipes etc. Im thinking if their was a hole, performance would be rough? Maybe its been tuned im thinking...
