    Evening all,

    It's time I said hello.

    For just over a week, I have been the owner of a Boston green, 1997 E36 323i SE, having somewhat reluctantly downsized from a Jaguar S-Type 3.0 V6 SE, in a part-exchange type deal.

    I once had a major soft spot for the E36 and feel I have been quite lucky with this long overdue first foray into BMW ownership. My car has factory fitted M-Sport suspension, 17" BMW split rims, full leather and dual zone climate control. It has done just under 80,000 miles and is in very good overall condition.

    Although I'd have preferred a manual car, it is far from boring in automatic guise - that is despite a 70bhp drop, compared to the S-Type.

    There's no telling how long this particular relationship will last, as the 323 was never intended to be more than an interim runabout, while I looked for a diesel powered replacement for my S-Type. With that said, the 323 really is growing on me in a big way, so ... well, who knows?

    Anyway, that's me.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I see there is a wealth of information available - if you can coax the results out of the search! (The joys of forum searches... groan!)
