Just done an oil, coolant, fan coupling and cambelt change on my daily driver D-reg BMW 320i and the amount of bloody problems I had.... this is actually a complete lie because this is by far the easiest watercooled car I've ever worked on and I had ZERO problems! :D

The most difficult job was actually putting the bonnet back on as I took the bonnet off for easy access (it's hinged at the front so opens outwards).

They don't make 'em like that anymore. Especially BMW because the newer ones don't even have header tanks so it's an absolute arse to get all the air out of the cooling system after a coolant change.

I did something similar with my old E34 5 series but the heater matrix had a nasty habit of keeping air in it even when the heater was switched onto full.

cool cars, really miss my old E30, I use to like fixing it as it was always so easy.
My 320i only cost me £250 last February and it's built like a tank!

Leather seats, usual rip in drivers, been stood for months but jump leads off my Fiesta and it fired up ok and ticked over nice. Nice drive he says, not been in it myself, engine bay looks worse than it actually is, no oil leaks that I can find.
edit: good tyres and the spare looks almost new.

Dunno mate, he's skint too that's why he's selling, can PM his mobile if you want and haggle it out between you, by the way, he's in Speke,Liverpool near John Lennon airport so distance might be a prob.
