Hello All, I've accidently ended up with a 2001 Auto E46 BMW 316ti Compact. I went out to get my wife a small automatic hatchback to learn to drive in and after the VW Polo I originally left the house for had already sold when I got there, I tried this instead.

Shame I've ended up with the N42 engine, but it's a much better car than the Polo I originally went out for!

After a few months and a successful test pass, we've decided it's a keeper, so time to lavish a bit of care on it and that's how I ended up on Bimmerforums.
