    Hi, Is there a quick way to check the condition of the Cambelt on a 147 2.0? I have looked at the cover on the topside of the engine but can't see any clips holding it on, is it easy to remove? The car has 39k and is 5 years old so its definately due a belt change but I might not be able to...

    I have had my car a week now, so I am still getting used to things on her. Quick question though - on idle the engine does sound quite "tappety", with a fairly constant (and fast) tick tick tick. Are the tappets solid, or Hydraulic? I had been runningthe car up to proper engine temp, so it was...

    I've just seen that BMW are now putting their twin turbo 3.0ltr into the 3 Series Saloon (badging it the 335i) Up until now the top (non M Series 3 Saloon) had a 260bhp engine, so I consider that the 159 3.2Q4 is in direct competition with this one...
