    Hi all,

    I have been told by a regular here that you guys understand real humour! this chap also went on to say i should come on over to Bimmerforums UK and introduce myself and get to know you lot a bit better.

    This mystery chap is Ronnie also known by the transatlantic fiends as Tefal.

    OK whats my story, i got into bimmers in a big way during my a levels in college, i got to appreciate the engineering excellence that goes into them and the design which is what made BMW the most recognized marque in the world. i worked hard and bought my first E30 325i 4 door when i was 19, it was a great car while it lasted, it was crashed arse end into a roundabout signpost! gotta love that E30 rear end.

    I learned from this and within a month bought another E30 this time a 320iSE 2 door. i got really bored with the 130Bhp and atrocious MPG so i bought back my old 325 and stripped it for parts.

    Bit by bit rebuilt the 320 into a full 325i sport with a 2.7 stroked engine polished and ported custom made exhaust, the works.
    having a couple of close calls i signed myself up for an advanced driving course and gained some respect for physics!

    i had that lovely '89 silver 327iS for 3 years until it was killed by a drunk hit and run driver, after that i had a couple of run around's, 200SX, 205GTi, Vans etc.

    Until i managed to get my current pride and joy a E36 '93 K 325iS with 29Kmiles on the clock, 2 owners, FBMWSH, i thought i had to be a mug to pass this up!
    october 2003 i bought it and marveled at the bargain i had, it came ready with 17inch 5 spoke BMW alloys, all the M trim in and out, silver leather and a sports body kit.

    Ever since i have been modding and adding and have recently fully rebuilt the engine with forged internals ready for supercharging summer 2009.
    so i joined Bimmer forums to chat to similar petrol headed lunatics like you!!!
    Being open minded is good n' all just be sure your brains don't fall out.
