Issues to look for
I just bought an "02" 330xi with 37K miles on it. The car is as tight as a new car and still has the "new car smell". I will post some pics soon of both of the bimmers my wife and I have. My question for the forum is, ar there any areas of concern I should keep my eye on? I have a warrenty on the vehicle, and if there is anything I should have looked at I would to get it done ASAP. I know that the water pump may still be a problem as it was on the E36's. I have noticed a very faint water smeel when the AC first comes on, but I am not sure if it is just the cabin filter which is now in the engine compartment, plus we have had two weeks of almost non stop rain. Any tips is as always greatly appreciated.
