    Hello all,

    I recently purchased myself an E36 328i Coupe on a 99 with tax and test. Externally it's not in too bad nick at all, there are a few things that will need sorting like rear brakes and drivers side rear shock (could be spring?).

    I took some pics today of the exterior, as you can see a small scuff on the bumper and both fog light lenses are cracked:

    She's straight down the side no dings

    arches in fantastic condition...This side! lol

    A slight dent in the top of the boot lid

    the only spot(s) of rust I can find

    The interior is fairly tidy too, and under the hood isn't bad either. I will upload more pics soon. She drives very nicely, no clangs, rattles or bangs. There is a squealing noise coming from the A/C belt side, but that is not a problem to sort... I hope lol!

    So based on the title of this thread I'd like to know others opinions on if I've made a good decision. The cost of car (cash-wise) set me back £225, I also swapped a 2001 on an X 1.8 lpg (boring) Focus that was a CAT C Repair. But seeing as i never paid for it I dont count it as a cost ( No it wasn't stolen )

    So please.... What do you rekon?

    Hi, for £225 you can't go wrong, even if you have to spend a coupe of hundred in sorting out spring etc. Enjoy it for what it is, and have fun driving it!

    £225 is a cracking bargain. Nice numberplate too

    That was my reasoning too, A.K.A the excuse I gave to the girlfriend to get her to agree! lol I intend to have fun, I absolutely love it.

    I thought the number plate was spot on too! lol

    That's what I thought, feel like I've been given a gold bar lol

    It is the shocks that have gone, I had a look today. Not a problem though, now looking through the options lol
