    Hello all

    Yesterday evening I have succumbed to the lure of Ebay and just won this:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

    This will be the first BMW I have owned since a much missed 325i coupe a few years ago.

    I went down to look at this one last evening before bidding, and it seemed very tidy, only 105k with a full BMWSH, including a service approx 1500 miles ago - so a nice row of green lights on the service indicator.

    Bodywork's not mint, but I'd rather something that's mechanically spot on.

    Anyone got one, or had one?

    Ed

    Cheers guys. I'm going to get it on Saturday, then we will see just how good it is.

    Don't suppose there's that many around at that age that still have a full main dealer service history

    All the tyres are recent and the exhaust looked pretty good too so fingers crossed it will be ok.

    Just found out tonight that one of my wife's friends husband works at a Main Dealer and he can get me parts at trade price! Just hope I won't need many.

    Hi vantage,
    Snap! I've just bought a very similar version of the same car. You have the sport seats though mine are just standard. This is my first BMW and I love the handeling on the 318ti. Definitely the best hatchback I've ever driven. Enjoy your new car.
