    Hi Guys,

    Im new to this forum and Im also new to BMW. Ive always been a bit of a Jap enthusiast (Honda) but took the plunge last month and bought myself a BMW. It been one of those things that I have always wanted to do and now I finally got myself one.
    Bought myself a '99 328 coupe in Steel Blue. Must say that Im really impressed so far. The car drives silky smooth with the straight 6 engine, you would never know that you were driving an 11 year old car. Hopefully I will get many, many enjoyable mile from her.

    The one thing that does slightly bother me, is the more I read about the rear sub frame problems on this model. I was thinking of taking it along to my local BMW garage for a quick once over as I regularly have my kids in the car. Would the garage have a look over it FOC or will the still charge me labour?

    Lastly, this seems like an excellent forum with lots and lots of info. Keep up the good work guys.

    Welcome mate,

    Get some photos up

    I would expect a garage to charge per hour for checking over the car.

    Cheers Mate,

    I'll get some photos up at the end of the month. Im offshore just now, but the Wife has assured me that she is taking good care of it. By all accounts, it seems as if she has dumped the family car and is constantly using the BM whist I am away. I will reclaim what is rightfully mines when I return from work ( if she lets me ) :-)
