    Hi, only just found this forum a short while ago but been a member of various BMW forums a while now but nice to find a UK one

    I've had 2 BMW's since 2005 and mostly been trouble free and even so just the basic troubles. My first was a 1996 328i convertible in Blue but was sadly written off in July 2007 as you can see by the pics below






    I thought that was it for BMW convertibles but the insurance money of £5700 was way more than the £4000 I was going to argue for, probably due to the condition of car. After checking my renewal price I couldn't believe it was only £30 extra even though I had a claim for a write off!!!!! So I started looking again and saw one listed with a reserve of £6000 on eBay. Only problem it was in Plymouth and I'm way up in Sunny Sunderland so I just let the auction run and nobody bought it as it only reached £4300. I contact the seller as it was only £60 to fly down and he could pick me up so we agreed on £5900 price. Considering I'd got £5700 from my other car I thought it wasn't bad at all

    So I was quite happy because I still had a BMW convertible for £30 extra insurance but even better was the fact I'd upgraded from my 1996 328i to a 1999 328i Individual in Velvet Blue with Blue roof that had all the optional extras as it was end of line for around £400. It had more toys and was in better condition with only 50,000 miles on the clock (nearly 40,000 less than my other car) so in fact I was very happy with it as most here would jump at that kind of 'upgrade' for £400

    this was taken in summer '09 but I've since swapped to a black interior as the champagne one was showing slight wear on drivers seat and is far more work to keep clean than a black one. I also sprayed the Antera wheels black (will post pics sometime soon) but currently have the original wheels back on as spraying Anteras back to silver



    I'd been looking for an E46 but I'm happy with the E36 for now as it's not worth the extra cash when this car is perfectly fine

    Sadly it's not stock any more and the roof is also showing wear n tear (got a mint black one) but I like my car Individual anyway so I've got a few mods I want to do to it but it's still a great car to have
