    e91 318d reliability and worth

    I’ve backed out the sale. My mate found that rear diff busing mount was leaking. That just confirmed that the car is at an age and mileage where it will start costing money to maintain other then the usual service. Which normally I don’t mind but only if it’s a car that I’m passionate about and is rewarding to drive.

    e91 318d reliability and worth

    I've bought it now £2940 - but doesn't get handed over to me until another weeks. In that time it will have had an oil change and new MOT put on it. Mileage is 154k, its M Sport in white, with black leather interior and usual spec with climate control etc but doesn't have idrive. Its got the revised N47 Engine, which is N47N where the chain issue was supposed to have been fixed. Its a manual 6 speed
  5. I have the opportunity to buy a e91 318d LCI 2011 as my new daily driver off a mate, which he has had for 5 years. Its got four new tyres on it and dpf removed and its been remapped. All Brakes renewed over the last two years. Mileage is 154K and think it had new flywheel and clutch at a 100k. He has always done regular oil changes on it, but only when the trip computers tells him to do it. My biggest concern is the turbo, not sure he lets the turbo spool down. This will be both my first diesel and turbo car, so the the question is.... and I know its really vague, do you think I would get a years trouble free motoring out of it, will the turbo last, and how much should I expect it to depreciate in a years time? This would be a car that I wouldn't have any passionate in driving and would purely buy to upgrade from my current accord with zero street credit until I decide what car I really want.

    Is Audi overtaking BMW?

    I Agree. Have you seen the new 3 series, looks like a Lexus from the back, and the 320d has two tail pipes, which back in the days used to be reserved for a proper power house like 335i. Stinks of desperation to me, to appeal to the masses. I don't even know if one of the tail pipe is just for show? The real question is.... Where BMW ever in front? Don't really answer that questions guys,was only meant to be joke.

    Drilling straight

    Thanks i did do the latter. Questions: When drilling through plaster board and then brick, do I start on drill mode and then switch to hammer mode once I hit brick? With the pilot hole should go through the wall as far as I would with the main drill bit? Thanks

    Drilling straight

    I will try going all the way through next with a pilot hole next time. I did do a pilot hole just to mark the screw holes but didn’t go all the way through. Keep the advise coming guys if there’s anything new.
