Hi All,

New to the forum and hopefully in the next month or so (finances permitting!!) I'll be new to the BMW community.

Company motor goes back soon and I've decided to treat myself for my 30th to a 330i - probably a couple of year old one depending on the budget. I've also decided to go for the saloon rather than coupe - family n all that!

Basically just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully get some hints from you guys about what to look out for when shopping for this car. Any info on people's experiences would be most gratefully received.

Look forward to speaking to you all.

Cheers

Steve

welcome to the forums, hope you stick around.

look for leaks, rattles... pretty much same as any other cars. i don't know that there is anything specific to look for in a newer 3 series

good luck
