    Just a quick hello, been on the forum a little while and thought i had better introduce myself.
    My name is Rob and i have had several BMWs over the years, current car is a 2001 E46 330ci M-Sport Manual in Cosmos Black. Only got it in August this year and am spending most weekends making sure everything is spot on and is as OEM as possible.

    Got my 1st BMW in the early 1990s. a Black E30 325i Sport manual fully converted to Hartge H26 spec (engine, suspension, Exhaust etc), sold it to my brother-in-law in 1996 and it has been unused in his garage seen 1998!

    Followed by:
    E34 535i SE Auto
    E30 325i Touring manual
    E36 328i coupe auto - sadly this was written off in August this year. The insurance payout and sale of the parts almost paid for the 330.

    I have had quite a few different cars over the years but always seem to come back to a BMW in the end!

    Mainly just sorting out all the normal failing parts, RTABS, tierods, Front wishbone bushes etc. to get it in top condition, removed a rather large Halfords flip out DVD player which came with the car and looked horrendous. I will look at removing the miles of cabling that is currently running arount the car from a previous ice install. I have had the MV1s refurbed (twice in 2 months, after my local tyre fitters managed to damage 3 of them when i had a set of tyres fitted 2 weeks after they were first refurbed!) Just had Thermostat, Water pump, Belts, Front and rear brake pads and front brake discs delivered so should be fitting them this weekend.
    Just looking to spend money on improving rather than modifying it at the moment.

    I have been trying to persuade my brother-in-law to either sell me the Hartge back or get it back on the road for himself, but have failed so far.
