Just joined (obviously, why else would I be posting in the intro board?) after accquiring a 1995 E36 318IS Coupe Auto from my Grandfather in a trade for my old Fiat Stilo estate!
I'm a bit of a forum vet, although I'm only 27 I've been members of forums for most things including music, drumming, carp fishing, photography, Fiats, Suzukis, Volvos, and even cigar smoking!
As I said I'm 27, I'm in the forces and I'm currently based in Bovington, Dorset although I'm moving to Catterick around March 2012.
My car history is a little varied to say the least, although it's been pretty much crap all the way...in order:
1995 Fiat Punto 55S - without a doubt one of the worst cars I've ever driven, second only to a Vauxhall Corsa. Destroyed by motorway miles.
2003 Fiat Stilo 1.2 16V Active - actually not a bad car despite some very negative reviews. Modified hen destroyed in a flood...3 snapped con rods, 1 bent con rod and an entire set of shattered piston rings. Total write off.
1993 Volvo 850GLT 2.0l Saloon - I actually really liked this car, but was old and needed a lot of attention.
2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0l - Awesome car, and proved itself last winter. Horrific MOT failure earlier this year so PX'd for...
2003 Fiat Stilo 1.9JTD Dynamic Estate - Bought in a pinch, glad to be rid of it.
Loving the Bimmer already, hoping I can keep this car a while. Picked it up with a touch over 45k on it, full service history too.
And now the moment of truth:
