What are common problems with this year?
What should I be checking for?
Please advise ASAP as I am going to see the car tonight.
I just remember while perusing the board a while back, I seemed to see a lot of posts popping up about nav screens going out or lines appearing. I could be wrong though.525iT_Feen said:Thank you beast.
I knew about the vanos, but not about the clutch.
What about the nav screen? Should I just run through it and make sure everything on it functional? Or something more specific?

The 00 year did have the smaller screen as used in all BMWs earlier and is about half the size of the screen in post 00 cars.525iT_Feen said:What about the nav screen?
