    Hi!!

    Well.... This seems like such a strange place to be after having VW's all my driving years! Had my mk3 golf estate for sale though and was offered a gorgeous E30 318is as a straight swap, and having loved E30's since I was knee high though I'd atleast go have a look. Needless to say I made a deal and I'm now the proud owner of the 318 and i must say it was one of the most pleasing drives I've had in a while! Everything is so tight and responsive!!

    Still kinda weird as all im used to is VW's but I think me and the E30 are going to have some fun!!

    So, I look forward to getting to know some people on here, and hopefully the experience will be as good if not better than the ones with the wolfsburg boys!!

    Andy

    Cheers guys!! Cforehead, Ive been on Edition38 for about 2 years now and met some real good people on there, and also Im on lowdownvw. Ill post some pics up tonight when Ive given her a proper clean out, just been enjoying driving her to clean her!lol.
    I think it pushed me towards BMW after driving my girlfriend brothers E92 320.. such a nice car and quality feel to it!! But I do prefer my older cars so I swayed towards the E30 for that reason, apart from always liking them!
