    Hello and thanks to one and all.

    A slightly late intro.

    Joined the forum Feb 2011 initially to solve a minor issue with my son's E36 328i. Took about 5 mins to find the answer on here.

    I've just purchased my fourth used beemer ('98 E39 540i saloon auto/steptronic). I looked up every thread on this model here and felt inspired enough to go for 'the beast'. I was just about prepared for the performance but have to say that my stomach still flipped over the first time I gunned it.

    The car needs a service and a few other things which I'm doing myself thanks to the DIY links etc you've provided. I've got a great Independent on my doorstep for the more complicated stuff.

    Think I'm gonna have to donate, this site looks well worth the upkeep.

    other Beemers since 2001;

    '92 525i SE manual - great first bm which still sold for £500 after 5 years with nearly 200k on the clock.
    '89 535i manual - a friends borrowed car for 4 months which I didn't want to give back. I tried to buy it but he wouldn't part with it.
    '97 323i SE manual - thought I'd give the baby brother a go. It was fun and I may do it again.

    Looking forward to contributing where I can.

    Will do. Assume I can add them to this thread via Photobucket? I'll check the forum procedure and get them up soon as.

    Thanks for the welcome.
