Hey guys! I've been lurking on this site for almost a year now and haven't actually said hi yet. I bought my '01 320 last may from a craigslist ad. The car had about 66k on it when I bought it. 12k later, and after reading all the maintenance you guys are comfortable with doing yourselves, I decided to replace all the air filters, the hood strut, and plugs and wires myself. With this site, and a little help from youtube, I was able to do it all in a weekend. I'm glad I decided to do it because after pulling that first plug, it was obvious they had never been changed. I can't imagine what a dealer would have charged me for this basic service but seriously thanks for inspiring some confidence and saving me some money.

P.S. the BAS/ESP light came on after I finished with the job. I was only able to start it and pull it back into the garage after being finished (due to having a few too many beers in the process). I was worried about the warning but about a half mile down the road on the way to work this morning the light went off and hasn't come back on.

Now you are no longer lurking, hello and welcome from South Yorkshire, have the same model as yourself, plugs had been done just before I bought the car but oil and filter to change in a week or 2 when weather warms up.

Congratulations on your home maintenance, probably the only way to get to know your car.

Regards Stuart.
