My Ride: 330 ci Msport
Hi all

Hello everyone,My name is Steve and i have just taken delivery of my New Toy.A 2002 330ci with the Msport goodies etc.Am a die hard D I Y Man and i fully intend to remain so as much as is Humanly possible.Was wonderin if anyone could give us a bit of info pls.My car has now done 70000 miles and i intend to drop out the Diff oil and Engine oil etc(just to be on the safe side).Am i best off gettin the Diff Oil from the Stealer or Non-Gen,also have alway's run previous car's on Mobil 1 oil and wondered if this was still the best stuff or not.Have also been reliably informed that certain gearbox's (mine is tiptronic auto)are so called sealed for life unit's.Wondered how was the easiest way to tell if mine is such.No dipstick for Gearbox but then last car (mercedes clk 55 amg )didnt have one either but merc would sell me one for 35 !!!.Also what are common weak point's on the car's.Am not a Rev Head but if BMW didn't want you to rev the cars they would'nt have made em sound so Damn Fine when you do !!!!!.Anyway i look forward to gaining Knowledge from you.Also i am in U K so may struggle in obtaining those U S goodies etc due to me being a Yorkshireman and not really computer Literate !!!!...........Thank's and Hello once again
