    Hey guys,

    Thought id introduce myself and say great forums!

    Been wanting a beemer for as long as i can remember, just purchased a E36 1992 325i Saloon and couldnt be happier, shes a joy to drive and makes a beautiful noise but chuggs the petrol lol.

    Dropped as low as she can go on 19" BMW bbs rims, M3 front/rear bumpers/side skirts/mirrors, alpina spoiler, remus exhaust, tints all round, immaculate black leather.

    However she has a few problems...front elec windows dont work, new front discs needed soon, few bits of rust and a couple other minors but nothing that i cant get sorted easily enough. no service history and 219,000 miles!!! (could be a contender in high milage thread?) The guy wanted £850 but got him down to £720 in the end.

    Bit of a gamble but shes a looker, sounds sweet as a nut, no rattles or squeaks and feels nice and tight. 11 months MOT and recent service.

    Fingers crossed all should be well

    Cheers

    Sam

    Haha took it to the garage today to get the front wheels aligned but they couldnt get the tools under the arches :(

    One of the guys there recommended a place he takes his S3, went there and turns out the camber is out on the back, all the wheels need straighening up aswell so the car is fighting itself lol.

    Have to leave it with them all day tomorrow...costing £80 which aint too bad to get it sorted. Then on friday new disks and pads for the front, just the lekky windows then im all set :
