    Never been much of a forum guy so here it goes.
    I Purchased my 94' e36 back in may 2012 for £550 with 130000 on the clock. Had no intention of keeping it so i stripped out the back welded the diff and gave it 9 months of pure death!! Now i cant sell it as i have to much love and respect for this old steed that has not let me down yet. She now has 156000 miles on the clock and its reached the time to give it a bit of tlc. I have an ever growing list of mods and jobs and would like to share its progress with you in the future.

    I bet there's more than a few drivers wondering how you got about so well in the snow. Does it squeal going round corners?, do you have to chuck it into corners like a Kart?. Did it have every day use?.And have you found that fantastic snack van near Fleet car Auction on Stephesons estate. And oh yes, welcome to the forum Convert, CONVERT, I thought you wrote Convent !

    In the snow it was alright if you don't mind going sideways everywhere lol. As for a daily driver its was fine nowhere near as crazy as first suspected. I drove pretty much a 15 mile round trip to Loughborough and back everyday for work if you did chuck it into corners then yeh things got pretty awesome but driving smooth and flowing from corner to corner is the only way to drive fast with a welded diff otherwise you'd be going sideways. I have just fitted an open diff back in though and its like a new car. handles so much better than i remember!
