    Hi im Ritchie,

    I currently drive a 2007 2.2cdti Honda Civic Type-s. its been chipped to 196Bhp and ive owned it for nearly 3 years its relativly fast and economical but im getting a bit bored and i need that sound of petrol!

    ive always liked the e46 so i have my eye on a 330i so will be saying good bye to the 45mpg but saying hello to the sound of that straight 6!

    im really looking forwards to having a petrol car again! no more deisel smell after you fill up and no more diesel rattle when idling

    so.... i thought i would come and do a bit of research and hopefully i can give some sort of contribution

    330i is a popular choice of car but take my advice, choose carefully! far too many fall into the wrong hands and have been abused and mileages tampered with.

    Best of luck car shopping and take your time to find a good one.

    thats some good preperation although the indicator option is still pretty rare
    tailgating lots and lots of tailgating and your finger on the stalk ready to give someone a dose of the fullbeam for no reason what so ever

    actually here at bimmerforums we are actively trying to break the stigma of owning a bmw that has been forced upon us by others because of those fecking reps
