    Newbie from West Yorks

    Hi all,

    Bought my first BMW about 6 weeks ago now, a 2004 e46 320d touring, with just over 160,000 on the clock... Hopefully it'll last a while longer with the right care! No pics on my laptop i'm afraid! Just a standard car though.

    So far so good, other than i've noticed it's not getting up to temp fully, so from a bit of googling i'm thinking change the egr thermostat, clean things up a bit and go from there? I'll be ordering some general service items soon so it's fresh for winter, as the oil is not looking its best, and i'm unsure of when filters etc were last changed.

    What's the deal with service 1 and service 2, is there much difference between them? Is there a list of what should be done on each?

    Welcome to BFI
    Your car will be good for many more miles, 160,000 is nothing
