    Hi everyone, new to this forum but have seen a few useful threads on here. now that i have my beemer, thought i should join up . So iv been into my VWs, but have always been a BMW enthusiast since way before i could drive. My first car was a polo which was owned for 2 years before i sold up to get my beemer. Heres how the polo looked:


    So on Saturday, the new buyer picked up the PoLow and in the evening, i went to pick up my Baby. I had always wanted an E30 but lack the garage required to really maintain and build one made me decide against it. so happily opted for an E36. was quite set on the 318is until i fell in love with a 6cyl and couldnt turn back. so i was searching far and wide for a lovely 6cyl m-tec coupe when i realised summertime will come and i would want to flip the roof back. So that was that. found a lovely 323i M-tec convertible in my all time favourite colour...Techno-violet. cost £80 more than what i got for the polo (which sold cheap) and less on insurance than what i paid to insure the polo last year. So my second car is this, and a verrrrrrry good introduction to my Beemer experience:





    Very happy with the purchase. its absolutely mint with tonnes of paperwork!
    so few parts have been ordered already including an M3 splitter, Hids, and also ordered a reducer pipe to fit my BMC CDA. future plans include the M50 manifuld swap, 328i exhaust and a remap. and some decent coilovers (would be a Sin to ruin it with budgets) and some lovely dishy staggered 17s

    Bloody nora, that engine bay is immaculate! I wish mine looked like that.

    Your PoLow looked pretty tidy also, fairly modified for just 2 years ownership.

    Look forward to seeing your progress with the vert

    Haha i hate hanging around! But that attitude is not too kind on the wallet lol. I needed more power and couldnt justify the expense of a 1.8t conversion on the polo, also if i kept it it would have also got a respray in Techno Violet

    my bay wasnt looking too fresh either, but read on the WD40 can that it can be used for cleaning too, worked very well on the polo when i had it as it freshens up the black plastics etc, and leaves the paint in the bay loooking fresh. Works even better on the beemer bay!
