  2. Hi Hubss Welcome to the Forum Not sure which Brembo calliper but you could take a look at www.realoem.com I know the BMW Msport 135M used 340mm discs up front and the Msport Callipers are 4 pot Remember if you upgrade the calliper you will need more clearance with the wheel 18" would probably be smallest and the offset would need to clear the calliper' I would look at realoem get the part numbers for the Msport stuff then use Google to see if you can get them at a good price. A friend of one of our sons has a 120d 2006 he managed to find a full set Front and Rear discs, callipers (in Blue) and pads for a sensible £800. The big plus was being Msport parts they all fitted without pain, he was already on 19" wheels. Dave Forgot to say when you look at realoem for the part numbers if you double click the partnumber it will call up a list of alternates and the models they are used on

  3. Hi Ben Welcome to the Forum There were some well documented timing chain issues with the N47 engines at 2018 the car your looking at should be on the B47 which I believe came in either 221hp single turbo version or 228hp twin turbo. I haven't read any real nasties about the B47 engines so as long as it is well serviced and documented you should be good. My personal feeling is a lot of issues for many manufacturers have begun to occur with extended service intervals (I still change oil and filters at 5k intervals) Both Manual and Auto boxes are tough but both should have fluid and filter changes at regular intervals look for evidence in the history. Check the inside edges of rear tyres if there is wear then it point to rear suspension bushes needing replacement not a horrendous job and well within the scope of a competent home mechanic. But a good negotiation point when talking price. Everything inside should work, make sure it does don't accept any "aircon just needs a re-gas" or "you can get a replacement on Ebay for £10" excuses if it were that simple why hasn't it been done? If you still like the car it's also more ammunition for reducing the price. My brother inlaw runs BMW 5 series Touring he loves them he is on his 4th now, his have all been the 3.0d engine but the general car is the same he travels extensively in Europe and all have been run to around 250k current one is around 150k Good Luck with the Hunt Dave
