    Hi all, what a great site this is, the internet is great for getting your information on cars and saving ££s on repair bills - what did people do before internet forums? Worth every penny to donate to that's for sure.

    Well, a bit about me. I'm an aircraft technician in the Armed Forces and I've just bought my first BMW - a 1998 323i Coupe in Black with 125K on the clock and full SH. Part exchanged my shed Renault Laguna and gave up 1600 in reddies. Since I bought the car I've changed the lights and replaced the gear/handbrake gaiters with leather ones. Planning a few more mods but nothing too outrageous.

    Always wanted an E39 M Tech Sport - but too expensive at the moment. I'm very happy with the 323 though. I finally enjoy driving again. The last car I had I enjoyed driving was a V6 Ford Probe (so used to getting my hands dirty haha).

    welcome mate, you will find the information on here very valuable. enjoy
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

    TBH mate it wasn't bad for a Renault with 130K on the clock. I just felt like a coward driving around in a car built by cheese eating surrender monkeys!

    Welcome to the world of BMW's...my first one was a 323, a great car and had 180,000 on it when sold and was still going like a dream.

    Hi montyburns1982 and welcome to Bimmerforums UK, congratulations on your new car, I've got to ask as it's on the change over, is it a e46 or e36?

    Its an E36, early 1998. Haven't had chance to look to see if its a Nikasil M52 yet, but even if it is, I'm not overly worried.
