    Hi guys and girls just thought I would introduce myself.

    I'm 24, live near Brighton. I had a fruitful career as an aircraft engineer, however got hit hard by the recession (as such). Now on the hunt for work! again!

    I've had around 20ish cars since I've been driving, some good, some not so.
    including but not limited to:
    205 xs
    205 1.6 gti
    205 rallye with vts engine
    mk2 fiesta 1.6d van (about the rarest car in the uk!)
    mk3 fiesta van
    mk3 escort on cut springs! (1st car)
    polo mk2 facelift gt coupe, blue. Turned out to be cut and shut!
    polo mk2 facelift gt coupe, red. lowered, polybushed and on pirelli P alloys!
    rover 620si - run around
    rover 214, roverleggera matt black 'ring car! LOL
    1986 honda accord awb. this was 148bhp with electric every thing and cruise control in 1986!!! Also it cost £28,000 so only 42 sold in UK!
    seat leon cupra tdi, remapped to 180bhp and 286lbs/ft, with audi s3 blue recaros, still did 60mpg!
    hilux surf 2.4, great in the snow
    mazda 323 4x4 turbo.... Rare...
    ford puma 1.7. track day ready!
    ummmm theres more...
    2x hillman imps!
    jago jeep, never on the road..
    audi 80 tdi avant on 230,000miles!
    bmw 325tds, bought to sell... never really driven.
    bmw 525e complete wreck, bought to strip sadly.
    really running low now.... sure there is more! anyway you get the idea!

    The new car is a e36 325i coupe manual. She cost £450 with a set or rare style 32 wheels. 18" staggered multi spoke ones. All she needed was a new tyre and trailing link bushes to pass the mot when it came round.

    Currently trying to get her ready for an Alps and Nurburgring trip. But WAITING for hottuning to get back to me about there coilies!

    I've been to the ring 3 times before, in a : mk1 leon cupra tdi mapped to 180bhp and 286lbs/ft. rover 214 (old shape) stripped completely set of ebc greens, everything else standard---was so much fun! and a 1.7 puma with ap coilovers, cosworth front brake set-up, every bush was polybush, stripped, buckets and harnesses. FRP airbox, k'n'n airfilter.

    I'm well experianced with FWD cars but RWD I'm still VERY not used to. Hence I sold the wheels to buy some m3 ones as they seemed a stronger design to bounce of the rumble strips!


    So welcome to me!

    I might not post much as im still learning this car so don't have any useful points to share! But I will be reading it alot!

    Dom

    thanks for the hospitality!

    All my cars have class.... in their own ways. Like the rover 620si... never have I had a car that could cook its brakes in less than 2 corners!

    right got some photos of the bmw below:










    The car is dirty in all the photos.. but the multi spoke wheels were perfect..
    the m3 wheels are genuine, but are a full set of rears... so are all 8.5j!
