    Hi

    My names is James

    Just came into the possesion of my second BMW

    First one i bought when i was 19 was a 1995 316 with full mot and tax (12months) for £400 - always wanted a BMW wanted to see what they were like to drive, long story short i fell more in love.

    Unfortunately was caught out during the winter before last on black ice after a water pipe had broken during the night causing the road to be like an ice rink and totaling my car, i was the first crash, then the closed the road to clear it (my car wasn't in the way, i had mouted a curb and was sitting in a feild)


    18 months on i decided to buy another one after a month of looking all over the net i went up to b'ham to have a look at one, lets just say the place i was buying it from looked like a chop shop and they wanted way more than the car was worth in the condition it was in. No to be dispondent found a site called trade-it refined the search to a place close to me, found an Ad that had been posted that day with a price that i though was to good to be true, so the next day i gave it a ring asked to view the car - to my pleasant surprise the car was as described below i had a good look over it and a test drive and offered him what i had he accepted.

    I am now in possesion of a 1997 318is coupe BLUE 92k on the clock, FSH, body work is pretty much immaculate one inperfection on the boot lid and VERY slight rust on the bottom of the drivers door- paint work is SPOT on.

    Full Remus exhaust system, Cat 1 sigma alarm, all the mod cons trip computer air con and to my susprise after only finding out while reversing in a petrol station parking sensors it has also been lowered not sure on what shocks but its just the right height.

    Either way i got a bargin all i can say is think of a number and knock a couple of hundred off it and you will be close possibly depends how well you know the market, after a few months of searching im pretty good at knowing how much is a good deal.

    Anyway to end i really am chuffed to bit im still smiling now - now to really smarten it up

    Thanks
