Thanks for your reply. Yes it's under BMW warranty for 2 more weeks! It's the Approved Used Warranty, which I'm guessing is the British version of your CPO warranty? I bought it almost a year ago...

48k miles, in AUC warranty, dealer wants to replace clutch and flywheel! Thoughts?

I took the car in for oil service, statutory vehicle check, and to have a noise investigated. The noise is like a sort of rattling sound overlaid with the noise of running water or that of a noisy...

In my bookcase. I didn't realise that space in the boot would fit the manual. Anyway I'm pretty sure it would end up somewhere else before long if I put it there.

Forget the noise, RFTs are complete crap in general. My experience is that the sidewalls are so stiff that there's absolutely no give in the tyre, and the car skips around over bumps while...

It has a barn door on the back, and the wheelbase is too short.

However I can appreciate that 258hp with AWD means it's quick.

Yeh the sport seats are great. I couldn't imagine not having them after having them in my last car and this one.

That's annoying, anyway in answer to your question, sport package definitely not essential. Mine handles great on 18s, way better than my 328Ci with sport suspension on 17s.

Stick with what BMW recommends for oil. If anything, the recommended Castrol oil which is relatively thin, 5W-30, would be better anyway because it would more easily spray around at lower oil pump...

This is caused by "insufficient air-free oil reaching the hydraulic valve adjusters". Basically it is caused by short journeys. There is a "bleeding" procedure that BMW came up with if you can't put...

But the N52 engine was designed for right hand drive on left hand side driving. The exhaust tips are in close proximity to pedestrians walking by. :D

Thanks for the constructive feedback though...

Get your hands on a Euro 330, they were made right up until the end. Fills the gaps better between 328 (called 325 in Europe) and the 335. :D

I agree, no reason why an M3 couldn't be a daily driver at all.

The torque might not peak as soon as it does in the 335, but it's hardly a slouch at the low end. It's got 280n-m as low as...

Happens all the time. The losers don't realise that the longer doors on a coupe mean you can shut it more gently. But they slam it as if it's the door of a garden shed. :mad:
