    Hi Folks,

    Not a newbie to forums but new member on this board.

    Forty something male & general boring family bloke etc etc.

    2 BMW's in the household in shape of 2002 E53 X5 4.4i Sport & 2001 E36/7 Z3 2.2i. Not the obvious enthusuiast choices - Aware many regard both cars as lacking driver focus compared to some other bmw offerings but no complaints from me re either. X5 4.4i around launch lapped the ring not far off 328i & Z3 has same rear suspension as the enthusiast raved E30 which in M3 guise is claimed to be one of BMW's finer handling moments. Both cars however alignment sensitive and in my exprerence correct alignment makes both cars drive so much better, (as can the person behind the wheel).

    BMW owner for 3.5 years & (prior posted a lot on RX8 owners club). I also post using same username on other boards, (some more than others), including x5drivers.co.uk, (where I wrote the X5 buyers guide faq) xoutpost, bmwland, zroadster.net & also PH & DW.

    Not really into mod's & not a technical guru but do pride myself on having well cared for cars and have some idea re assesing intregrity of used cars.

    My posting style is hopefully candid but polite. I try to avoid posting inaccuracies, speculative nonsense or stupid questions & am mindful such content can niggle others.

    Pangster is an old name I know from elsewhere will see if I recognise any others.

    Already typing too much so will wind my neck in and have a nose around

    Welcome to the forum AW8 - good to have you with us!!! You'll probably find that there's sections/threads and posts on here that suit most people tastes/interests and as a result has a wide and varied membership base.. it's always pretty busy/active on here as well and most people are fairly friendly and laid back. The mods/admin on here take a sensible view when moderating threads and don't really rule with an iron rod as is the case on other forums! LOL! (just make sure you title threads correctly! ).. I'm sure you'll fit in just fine!

    * 2016 BMW M135i LCI (F20): current
    * 2016 Mercedes Benz GLA 200d AMG Line (X156): current
