    Hello there - thought I'd introduce myself as I was mooching through the forum and it said I couldn't view any more until I registered, so that's what I did!

    My current drive is a Volkswagen Golf V6 4Motion that's my daily runner and get's used for a few trackdays and trips to the Nurburgring but an annual mileage of up to 30K means big running costs and so I really need to make the move back to a diesel car and am quite taken with the idea of an E46 330D so am having a mooch about and doing my research before taking the plunge - I know about weak turbos and swirl flaps, but any other pointers on what to look out for would be most welcome!

    I've been a regular on the mkiv golf forum uk-mkivs.net for the last couple of years and have a thread about what's been done to the golf here if anyone's interested - it's mainly suspension and brakes though, so not too many shiny pictures!

    The Golf is doing a trackday at Anglesey at the end of the month after which time it'll be moved on to make way (hopefully) for the new car!

    Jon.

    Cheers for the friendly welcome chaps - looks like there's a reasonable amount of useful information stashed away on here, just need to wade my way through it.

    Probalby going to be a couple of month till I get one, but the goal of it will be to set it up so it's useable for trackdays and the like as well as romping up and down the motorways for work - definitely like the idea of taking a touring round the 'ring!

    As for best forum on the web though? Well, you've got a lot to live up to after life on uk-mkivs......

    Jon.
