    Hello,

    We've just got our hands on what appears to be a bargain! It's a 1995 320i Coupe. It's a bit rough around the edges but, all in all, a solid car which drives really nicely. Cost me £620

    My first BMW was a 1995 e36 318is Coupe. I then had an e39 528i, followed by a 2003 Mini Cooper S, which i still have now.

    My girlfriend had a 2004 Suzuki Ignis on finance and, with the way everything is going up in price, it had to go. I started looking for a cheap runabout and then got sucked into looking at bmw's again!

    Chuffed to bits with this one. We've done plenty of cleaning and it could look spot on with a bit more time and effort. I wont be spending too much money on it to begin with but it seems a shame not to tart it up a bit

    Anyway, here's our 'banger'... please ignore the jungle, i mean garden! Too much rain and not enough mowing!









    The pictures make it look better than it is, but it's a pretty clean car for 600 quid!

    Could do with a front bumper at some point. It's got a bit of a bump just below the left kidney grille and is a bit distorted at the left hand corner

    Thanks for the welcomes It's far from a banger really but the pics do make it look more shiny than it is in the flesh. Wont take much to get it looking great though really.

    I bought it as a cheap gap filler really, but i'm already looking at breakers for new mirrors and a bumper!

    Unfortunately, there's no service book, but i have a big wad of receipts and invoices and loads of MOT's. It's done 117k miles but you wouldn't think so.

    The drivers seat isn't torn or anything but it's pretty worn. The colouring has all but gone in places, but i have some leather cream so should be able to revive it with a bit of elbow grease.

    There are a few small scrapes and a couple of rust blisters but nothing major.

    I'm well made up with it... I've missed the 6 cylinder growl! Good to be back!
