    Hey everyone

    Just a quick hello to introduce myself. The current driveway would give you the impression we're BMW nuts but up until October last year I'd never owned one! Back then I was looking for a car to replace my doggy 4x4 that could tow my competition drift car at weekends and also the G/F could use to drive up and down the A1 to London. Didn't take long to come across the 5 Series and after a bit of research (and my typical bloke thing of having to have top of the range) we ended up with a 535d M-Sport Touring.

    Fell in love with it and wasn't long before I was hankering after that level of luxury for my car (at the time it was an Elise) So I bought a 56 plate Z4M Coupe This car is awesome! I imagine its as close as a BMW can get to the driveability of an Elise but with the BMW comfort levels!

    Then a few months ago I decided to give up competition drifting, got rid of my RX7, the trailer and all my spares and bought an E46 M3 Convertible. The intention was to use it for Drift Taxi, Drift Demo's, fun drifting etc but its such a nice example I just can't do it!

    Anyway got married in June and the credit cards have taken a massive hit so I've been trying to decide which one has to go Originally I wanted to keep the Coupe, there are only 500 or so and I love the way it turns heads. But I've always had convertibles and as soon as its not raining I'm wishing I can take the roof off. So looks like the Coupe has to go

    So at some point in the not too distant future we'll be down to 2 But I feel better I've finally made up my mind what I'm doing so now I can concentrate on enjoying my M3

    Apologies in advance for all the questions I'm going to be asking, but I promise I'll pass on my knowledge to future new members (and I'll try to put them in the right places, I'm a Moderator myself so know how frustrating it can be when people don't read the rules )

    Anyway a few pics of the fleet:

    No :( I had an invite for the EDC too :( That car is now in bits having broken it for parts :( Just had too much money tied up in it, then for this season it needed a rebuild and a new clutch so no way I could spend £3000+ on it when I needed to free up cash.
