Hello everyone and boy am I excited to finally own a 2006 BMW 120d 5d. A real one too, just to top it off.

I'm a fitter mechanic by trade but currently off the tools, so I can help with electrical questions relating mainly to high voltage distribution networks. In other words, I know stuff all about my car and hence getting on here! Also a keen road and MTB cyclist, and partial to a bit of motorcycle racing and trials. So I might be seeking roof rack help in my first real post.

Reason I bought the Bimmer was simple - Naturally I have a penchant for good design and quickly discovered how rubbish everything else is in comparison to the BMW. Also hoping to keep some money in my pocket each week by taking advantage of the 6.7l/100km on offer. Looks horn, too.
