    Hey guys, i'm new to owning a BMW.

    Previous cars i've had in order:

    Rover Metro 1.1
    Rover 214 1.4
    Vauxhall Corsa (59 plate) 1.2
    Vauxhall Astra (10 Plate) 1.7

    Thought I would buy a cheap BMW 318i, only cost £250!!

    I think it was a bargain, however other peeps might not see it that way.

    What i've done since I bought it 2 days ago:

    New battery
    New gear knob
    Sports air filter
    Gone in for Magnaflow twin exhaust today

    Front bumper is wrecked (see photos)
    Scratches, dents... the usual


    Remember I'm completely new to BMW's, I have basic knowledge of upgrades and maintaining a vehicle.

    Let me know what you think about, A. a BMW 318i, B. What I should do to it and C. common problems.

    Awesome, never been part of a forum so I hope I become a successful attributing member!!
