Just noticed you did actually post a Wanted thread for an ED30 on the 14th  :ashamed:  No offers off the back of that then?

Well if it's a shuddering through the car when taking up the clutch bite, it's probably the clutch and/or dual mass flywheel.

If it was a fuel delivery issue, it would almost certainly fault code.

Manual, seems to be fine and only happens when it town based traffic and moving at low speeds.

Also seems to sound like its doing it when the engine is warm and u restart the engine

Manual or DSG?  Juddering when pulling away in 1st, or whilst cruising?

The world needs more hugs right now, socially distanced ones of course  :grin:

You have a 318is as well! Nice  :happy2:

I don't blame you for liking the ED30.  They're quite something to drive, especially with a Stage 1 remap and a mild suspension upgrade  :happy2: 

Shame you can't keep the MK2 and get an ED30 as well!

It would be good to know how thorough their alternator belt check was. Hopefully it wasn't just a "Yeah that looks OK" job.  The alternator pulley has a one way clutch on it, which if it fails, could potentially cause noise. If the pulleys look shiny on the inner ridges, that indicates a worn belt.

The only other thing I can think of that makes a loud squealing noise is the turbo.  The turbo and exhaust manifold are one part, so they can check that when they've got it apart.  £500-600 sounds steep to look for a broken bolt, and I'm not sure how that would cause a squealing noise, but if the turbo itself is shot, you're looking at £1000 + fitting for a brand new one. Refurbished ones usually cost around £500, which I would take over a £200 chinese one from ebay.

Good luck!

I can’t turn down a hug!  :love:

Yeah so my intention with the MK2 was to keep as an investment and that was in storage however my actual daily is a E30 318is and the head gasket is going on that so I’ve had to replace the MK2 with that (storage wise) so I’ve been left with the MK2 as a daily.

I have no storage for it right now so I’m just going to let it go and get something a bit more practical. My best friend has an ED30 and It’s just a different breed. From the day he got it I’ve just gotten the ED30 bug. Maybe someone might want to swap but either way when it goes up for auction I’ll be on the hunt for an. ED30.

It's fine, no animosity or abrasiveness was intended on my part either.  It's just that swapping a MK2 for an ED30 is quite an eye catching thread, so I just had a little peek on MOT check out of interest, because as I said previously, I've owned several MK2s and know they can be quite troublesome with rust.  It certainly wasn't my intention to imply your car is a beater (it certainly doesn't look it!) and not worthy of a swap. Apologies if it came across that way.

Shall we hug it out?  :love:  Welcome to the forum btw  :happy2:

It's certainly worth asking.  Decent MK2s are hard to find now and quite a lot of folk on here sell up and move on, so you never know.

I came from MK2s and Corrados to a MK5, which was a big jump, so I totally get why you fancy something a bit bigger and newer.

I did not mean for the reply to come off as rude, I was just simply saying the work has been corrected. I understand why you did an MOT check as everyone does when they’re looking to buy a vehicle but from what you said it seemed like my idea of a swap was not worth it. I agree I should have put this in the sales section  however I am new the group and really didn’t know where to post for the swap. I know some Ed30’s are fetching some serious money but I thought I’d leave the post open ended as to see what people would offer. Again apologies if I came across as rude.

And for the reason I’m looking for a swap is that this is my daily at the moment and it is not very practical. The car is due to go on collecting cars however before it goes up I thought I’d see if anyone would like to swap (saves the hassle of the auction) but if no one does then it will see it’s turn on collecting cars. All my daily’s have been 30 year old cars and I feel like it’s time for a change.

Thanks
Jeevan
