Just thought I'd introduce myself:
My name is Stu, I'm 32 and I'm from Darlington, I'm an EQA technician for Cummins. I always join a forum when I buy a car so here I am. I've had plenty of medium to high performance cars in the past, mainly jap but a couple of fast Fords and many years ago an E30 325i. My friends father owns a local BMW specialist garage (Teesside Auto Tech) so have always been comfortable with BMW's and due to my profession am able to tackle most jobs others wouldn't touch.
I've just won the following 330:
2001 BMW e46 330ci SE COUPE SAT NAV HEATED LEATHER 19" M3 WHEELS M SPORT 328 325 | eBay
It was a complete impulse buy, I needed (wanted) a car to run around in as I recently sold my Impreza, bought the wife a Mini Clubman and left myself with nothing. I generally bike to work and could have used the missus old A Class but felt I deserved something a bit more manly. I'm not quite sure where I heading with it and how long I'll hold onto it but I'll figure that out when I get it home. I know a lot of people think it's crazy buying a car without looking but I find it half the fun and any problems which do arise I'll take pleasure in sorting out.
Anyway if anyone recognises the car feel free to tell me what I've let myself in for.
