hoping to install the alternator this weekend.

Then going to clean up the exterior pipes where the oil appears, then give it a drive and take it from there.

Will keep you guys updated.

hi, after closer investigation after taking my alternator out it looks like the oil leak is due to the turbo.

this prob means a knackered turbo :( and £££

Thanks for the reply.

The car has done 116k miles, I bought it privately a year ago.

I can't see any oil leak around the engine bay.

D3 E90 using more oil than usual.

Hi, I've noticed on my D3 E90 that the oil consumption is alot more than I would have expected. I did a oil service in September, and I had twice topped up the oil (1 litre each time).

BMW recall on E9x and E8x models

I received a letter yesterday from BMW stating they are recalling E9x's and E8x's BMW's due to a possible damage to the postive battery cable into the plug-in contact of the car.

Anyone else received the letter.
