    Evening chaps,
    just thought I'd better pop in and say hi.
    Just joined and I'm very impressed with the cars on here.

    Brief history -
    I love anything quick, interesting or retro. Not a fan of new cars at all, although they somehow grow on me by the time they're old. Weird!
    Massive E36 fan, infact even on the occasions I've set out to buy an E46, I've returned home with a '36

    I've just bought an R reg 1997 318is in calypso red. Really wanted a 328 Sport but got sick of looking at dogs by the time this popped up and it's just so right. Original panels, paint, etc. Not bothered about speed in the slightest as this is just a daily driver, although I'll still be a fanny with it!

    I've owned in the past a 320 coupe (grey), 328 Sport (Montreal), M3 Evo cab (estoril). All E36s.

    I also own other toys but they're not relevant to this site so I won't bore you.

    Anyway, really impressive site this, full of knowledge. The main thing I'm hoping to build on is my detailing skills. Getting my first DA soon. (well Crimbo!)

    Cheers, looking forward to some banter!
    Mark.

    No mate, not far at all.
    I'm down at Stockton quite a bit actually. I get my other car serviced at Nelson Porsche there. I'm good mates with Jamie the owner.

    I do the Teesside Autodrome trackdays too, when they're on.

    You a trackday lad or do you stick to the roads?

    Yeah, it's great fun. Dangerously addictive though and bloody expensive!
    I've had to kurb my habit til next year.

    I think the credit crunch has got everyone by the balls and we're only just starting to enter the second bit. Not good.
