I've been thinking about picking up a 3 series coupe ever since a friend took me out in his 330 about 10 years ago. Now my wife wants a convertible car, so have talked into a BMW so we can both get what we want (we'll also be keeping our beat up mazda estate for hauling kids n dogs around). So I'll be looking around for dos and don'ts for a while, buyers guides etc. (best one?). Quite a hands on chap having built a few cars in the past (drag cars, old vw's) and looking forward to getting well acquainted with a different type of german iron for a change, although I will be keeping it largely stock i would have thought. I'm in south devon by the way. Cheers
