    Evening all .

    Thought I would introduce myself, my name is Kier and I'm 22 and just got my first BMW on Sunday.

    For some reason I joined a few years ago, but don't remember it! Must have wanted to view something I guess.

    Anyway, after someone decided that they would drive into me, my Focus was written off. Beyond economical repair...good news...I wanted a new car for a while!

    So, what did I end up with? A 1997 P-Reg 528i SE Auto. Cost me £1,000 of eBay. I was a little worried about buying one of eBay, but went for it anyway.

    I'm not the most car minded of people, but I think I got a very good deal. The car is lovely, 96,000 miles, smooth when driving and silent (was told to look out for this). Only bad thing I can find so far is a bit of trim broken by the seat ajuster. Oh, and that MPG gauge under the rev counter...not a fan of that!

    Its a bit of a difference going from a 1.8TDDi Focus to a 2.8 petrol! Insurance isn't too bad, £590 fully comp, not bad for a 22 male!

    Few more photos can be seen here.

    Going to have a look around the forums and see if I can find any fun, amazed at how much comes with it! Love the 'rest' button to keep it warm!
