I'm Tom from Derbyshire
I am and always will be a massive VW fan and I've just finished off my latest project - a 1.9 TDi VW Corrado, here's a link to the build thread if you're interested, and a picture:
Anyway, you might be wondering why I'm here. My friend has just picked up a 2003 (53) 330D SE saloon, 150k for £3500. He let me have a drive and I'm totally and utterly smitten! The whole point of me building the Corrado TDi was to have a coupe with decent looks, but with diesel economy and half decent performance. Well I've built the Corrado now and it's time for something new, so I've got my heart set on a 330D Coupe
They're fairly big money at the moment (for me anyway), but I'm hoping to save enough that in a year or so I'll be able to afford to buy one. So, as a result I'll probably lurk here for a year and learn what I can about the E46 in anticipation of owning one (I'm pretty new to BMW's, although I have helped a mate do a 2.5 conversion on an E30 Touring).
Thanks for reading, I'm looking forward to reading plenty and hopefully absorbing some of it!
