    Hi all,

    I just like to say hello to everyone ive posted a couple of things up due to a few issues with the car I have but so thought it was time to introduce with some pictures etc and my car story,

    I started with VW's and thought i would be for a little while to come my first car being a mk4 diesel golf bog standard 110bhp, loving this i moved back to a mk2 8v gti which was awesome 17's lowered such a good car this really started my love for power and VW's.

    This soon had me chasing a g60 corrado(white), which I have show a pic of as I spent much time and love on it before selling to buy a mk3 vr6 golf, I then had a 120mile commute twice a week plus a few other miles here and there so I sold for a Clio Sport good fun but passenger Door trim was coming off after 45k and steering wheel looked like it had done a 100k, but basically I just wasnt happy with it so I sold it and brought another corrado g60 the blue one from my pics this had done a 145k but was still very strong had a few electrical issues and a few other bits so I sorted them put through the MOT and sold as I wanted a newer car for both image and work purposes.

    Now I have to say that at the time a BMW was a long way off I used to abuse BM drivers and wouldnt really contemplate anything that wasnt out of the VAG Stable.

    So the search started for a car that was old enough to have some charm (as I hate the look of new cars and I think that the pocket takes a bashing but I also wanted a car that still looked reasonable in the car park.

    At the time the only car that was only standing out for me was the e36 variant I ended up going for a e36 318is coupe, I loved it just fast enough and very good looking I hated the 16's that come on it standard so upgraded for M3 CSL Rep's. left everything else the same, unfortunately a month ago someone crashed into me on my way down too poole visting a friend luckily no one was hurt but the car was a write off(annoyingly i'd put £50 petrol in her washed her that morning but these things happen)


    So that leads me to being here my 330d is no way perfect but full service history the engine and interior are immaculate I just need to give the outside some TLC but this was all reflected in the price.

    Hope you enjoy I look forward to posting my progress.


    Cheers Andy

    P.s I hope all the pics work

    Cheers guys I hope i can help a little and get a little back my knowledge of bmw's under the hood is very vague compared to the 8v vw engine but i'm sure ill get there.

    need to sort body work then put it through a full service and go from there its got a full years ticket so thats handy.
