118D as I needed to have some economy for my daily commute.

My wife says that it is a girls car because of the colour :shock: I think that she is just trying to claim it from me :lol: :lol:

Picked her up from Matt @ Obsidian Detailing of Saddleworth after some tlc in the form of a winter detail - the guy is a legend and ever so helpful ... took the time to answer all my nurdy beginners detailing questions - and the shine on that lusty LMB paintwork is fantastic

Well not officially only today but yesterday I picked up my 123d with its new engine fresh from BMW (paid for by the lovely people at warranty direct) and today I went to pick up so lovely new alloys to put on her, also considering starting a build thread as I have a list of things I am planning over the coming months

Timing chain guide snapped which led to the chain ripping through the oil line etc and yeah basically it died Image I’d only had it for 2 months and thought it seemed low on power but thought the dpf was blocked or something, oh well new engine now should last me another 100,000 miles Image think the previous owner just didn’t look after it at all

Having picked up my pre facelift 2006 130i 5dr just under 2 weeks ago, I have just changed the gearbox and diff oil. Brakes have been bled and car has been detailed ready for winter. Just ordered some oil so I can do a full service next weekend. Previous car was a 2007 120d 3dr.
