Thought i'd introduce myself as i will be frequenting the forums a bit now. I'm 22 living in Edinburgh. I've been after a BMW for a while and due to my job (work at an engine reconer) i've the opportunity to buy one. I've been driving a 98 1.8 TD Ford Escort till now (which has some brilliant memories lol)
Providing i do buy it lol, it's a 97 (P plate) 520 I SE, all the toys in it. Midnight blue with alloy's 1 year's MOT and 1 years tax, 105K on the clock for £1000 (i secured a deal on £500 for my escort too)
We just did a load of work on it, new calipers, suspension, discs & pads and serviced the engine so it's good to go. Thing doesn't have a bit of rust on it although there is a bit of a scrape on the rear bumper but seeing as we have a respray shop i can get that sorted for nowt.
I'm thinking of some new alloys for it, the M5 spoiler and M5 front bumper (thread already in the tech section!) that would be it just for the time being unless there are some MUST do mods etc....
What do you think though ?
