I'm a new BMW owner. Although I do have a MINI as well - not sure if that counts.
I have just bought a 1997 323i coupe in Maderia Violet. It's in quite good nick for its age. A couple of small dents in the back wing and the front bumper is a bit scuffed, the odd bit of rust showing apart from that it looks ok - badly in need of some tlc and polish!
Engine sound lovely and the auto gearbox seems smooth too.
Looking forward to messing about with it and restoring it back to its former glory and beyond!
By the way - go gentle on me as I am a female!
