    Just had the fuel pump fail in the 328 - thats the second time in 14 years the car has let me down - really why do our cars only do 250,000 km ? I remember the good old days when a Mini would last 30,000 before a maqjor rebuild and breakdowns were a daily event - build quality is rubbish?

    Found a brand new Halogen Globe today in my toolbox. If anyone wants it, just pay the postage and it's yours, or pickup is in Waitara (just out of New Plymouth) 12v 55W PK22s

    more bling on the doorstep. Pavlov Racing control arms are fabricated from thin wall 4130 chromoly steel. These arms are 100% TIG welded and fully argon backpurged. They are then stress relieved, heat treated, and powder coated. These arms are available in stock length +10mm and +16mm longer per side for increased track width. Standard inventory is 10mm wider track width. These arms weigh 3.8lbs, The arms use high misalignment oversized bearings which allow for increased suspension travel without bearing binding. The arms also allow for bearings to be replaced using a simple press in press out method and replacement parts are easily available. Simply pop out the snap ring and press the old bearing out and the new one in. and Front Control Arm Rear Brackets from AKG these are adjustable

    Some days my bumper grille pops out, ridiculous to happen after 350,000km on the body. Considering scrapping it.

    Our 320d needs it's oil changing every other month. What a pain. You'd think we drove it a lot, or something. The Mercedes is just as bad. I may have to fit some brake pads sometime.

    I'm tired of 328i as well. It's done just over 200,000. Nobody warned me that the washer bottle required topping up every 3 months. Have an A series turbo. Suspect 30,000 mls between rebuilds will be optimistic.

    Try being a Merc owner.... they envy the Mini's reliability.

    Burn it. That interior doesnt deserve to survive.

    If it's for the E91 you have to use genuine coolant for the electric water pump (pump lubrication). There is also a special bleeding procedure that sometimes will only work when using a scanner to activate the water pump. Do not run the pump dry. The venting (bleeding) process must be carried out correctly. We would use 3 X 1.5L bottles when draining and refilling.

    Made some more progress on the e21, got the bonnet fitted properly, got the heater fan sorted, changed out the coil so there are sparks, and powdercoated the rocker cover, also fitted the alternator, and discovered an oil leak in the sump gasket! Gotta love old cars.
