Beware of pwner

Welcome! :hi:

Congrats on you purchase. I bought a used 323 a year and a half ago, and the only problems I've had so far are a window regulator go bad, and a leaking thermostat housing. The window regulator was replaced under warranty, and I was able to replace the thermostat myself. The stock bulbs in the amber lights are clear, but you can buy amber bulbs at any autoparts store, they're the single filament ones. BMW recommends changing the oil every 15,ooo miles since it's synthetic, but most on this forum do either a pre-interval oil & filter or just filter change.

If you want to do the inspection yourself, or even regular maintanence on your car it would be wise to invest in a Bentley service manual for our cars. Be prepared to spend a lot of money on metric and specialty tools though, if you don't already own them.

Let the modding begin. :thumbup:
