    Hi all,

    Thought I'd join up as I'm a long-time reader, 1st time poster. I have an e46 330d Touring, which I bought on a whim after getting shot of my previous Impreza.

    We (I) wanted something with a bit of poke, a bit of practicality and an auto box (the wife does not understand the workings of a manual...). She had 60k on the clock, owned by one lady from new with full BMWSH.

    Having run it for 10 months and 12k miles I can say i love it. I love the torque, I love the comfort, I love the sideways-monkey action on wet roundabouts. I love it so much that when I discovered this:

    I couldn't say no. Here are a few other pics from my phone...

    This is a 1999 registered 328i Touring, thats sat in a barn unused for two years. It has 112k on the clock, a full service history, Techno-Violet paint, M-tech body kit, leather, the whole lot.

    We put the battery on charge, replaced the seized fuel pump and after turning over for a few seconds she burst into life and settled down like a little six-cylinder sewing machine. It's in excellent original condition apart from one tiny rust spot bottom right corner of the tailgate and A.C. Schnitzer mirrors.

    I paid the princely sum of... £900 and hope to get it on my drive in a couple of weeks for a thorough detail, servic and general tidy-up. I can't wait!!! A proper 6-cyl petrol Bimmer with a manual gearbox...

    Anyway, thanks for reading my ramblings, I look forward to being a member on here, it'll stop me driving my missus mad with BMW-related crap.
