    Miss my e30 325i touring in lacs silver. Kind of regret selling that one

    Not necessarily. It's all about having the time, patience and motivation to get these niggly little things sorted. I know what you saying though, I'm the same. I'm a little fussy too. If I hear a rattle or squeak coming from somewhere, it gets to the point where it irritates me so much that I have to dig in and get it sorted until it's gone/fixed!

    Ok when was it last bleed out?! Probably worth doing anyway for the sake of a couple of quids of fluid But also if you are saying it doesn't always do it, then it's probably not that bad tbh. If gets worse or starts doing it constantly then its probably worth investigating further. Depends how fussy you want to be I suppose

    Yeah I had the EFI I4 DOHC 8V engine and I quite liked it, despite it's appetite for HG's lol. Like you said shed load of torque that really pulled like a train.....

    engine knocking

    I was going to say it doesn't sound that bad to me either..... If it ain't broke......

    What that it looks a bit 'green' ?! No idea if that's just a dodgy photo or what?!

    Hahaha! The infamous ol' 2.0 dohc 8v "twinky" engine. Never bothered rebuilding the head myself. T'was cheaper and easier at the time just to chuck a different block in there! My personal favourite was an auto 2.0 dohc engine that I converted and put into my manual estate. Paid the princely sum of £10 for it, pulled better than the 3 previous engines and got a couple more years out of it until she finally went again! Bit like Trigger's broom that car, but it pulled like a train. Much better than any m20b20 or m50b20 engine I can remember anyway
  13. I know exactly where you coming from. Also I MUCH prefer the rack and pinion setup on the older 3's......

    I like that a lot. Seems very nice for the money

    What do you all get on full tank?

    Interesting. Similar figures to my 540i. Although I would imagine your long term average mpg is far better than mine

    Hahaha! Same here! The tappet adjustment section was particularly oily which I remember doing on the 2.9i V6 xr4x4. With the rocker covers off, Haynes manual just next to it, I'd follow the book to the Tee as I went along taking the backlash out of the valves. All 12 of them!

    What does the clutch pedal feel like?! Is there any "spongeyness" to the clutch?

    Could it be a problem with the hydraulic system?! Weak master/ slave cylinder? Could be old fluid in lines and when cold highlights the problem more?

    Question about using parts from 06 530i on my 04 525i

    Don't know what it's like on the other side of the pond, but courtesy and manners doesn't cost a lot here and considering you've been on here all of a few weeks with 6 posts to your name that's quite a tall order.....
