Thought it only courteous to introduce myself before I start delving into the forum and learning about my new (to me) car.

Anyway this is my forst BMW having owner a MKIV Toyota Supra and a MK4 VW Golf .:R32.

I also ride motorbikes and have a 1998 Yamaha R1.

Anyway my most recent purchase is a 2006 E92 BMW 335d. I part exchanged my R32 against it in order to have a change but still maintain some performance and achieve some fuel economy over the guzzling 3.2 V6 petrol engine.

Initial impressions after just under a week are as expected. Masses of torque with a lovely drive yet still achieving MPG I could ony dream of from the R32. One thing I do miss about the R32 is that V6 noise but saying that for a diesel the 335d is quite refined.

I am looking forward to learning more and more about my new car and becoming a part of the community.
