    Hello all, just joined. I was introduced to the BMW world in 2001 when I bought a 1993 e34 525i Auto, the best car I have ever driven. It had varying problems over the years, mainly overheating issues, but the problems never outbalanced the pleasure of driving it. Put it off road in 2008 when the money I was spending on it, appeared to be occurring at monthly intervals, but the engine was fine. It had done by then 245,000 miles.

    Ashamed to say that for the last three years I've been driving a Volvo, the driving experience which, when compared to the 525, is like comparing the flight of a starling to an eagle. (I got the Volvo cheap, from a family member, never intending to keep it so long).

    Finally got rid of the Volvo last week, always missed the refined experience of a BMW, but thought with petrol worse than it was 3 years ago, I'd be better off with 3 series rather than going back to the 525. Always the possibility of putting my old one back on the road but thats another thread I think.

    Beautiful silver 2001 (registered 02) e46 318i SE. Only thing is, only had it five days, and engine cutting out intermittently whilst driving. Seems a common problem. Will post separately. Hopefully just a sensor problem.

    Cheers, Mike
