    hello all,
    thort id just say a quick hello as im new around here

    ive not long bought a 2004 325i sport in superb condition.

    its a cracking car and its got me smitten on all things bmw.

    before this ive had impreza's for almost 2 years and mr2 turbos before that.

    TBH i was always chasing BHP figures and didnt even consider bmw's as they just didn't seem fast enough (m-cars aside).

    But since i was doing silly miles in my impreza it was costing me a fortune in petrol i had to face facts and decided a diesel was the way forward.

    this lead me to the 330d in sport trim and after looking at a few decided i could not get a nice one for my budget.

    So i broadened the search to petrol bmws and ended up seeing much newer lower mileage petrols bmw for the money.

    Which leads me to now.

    two weeks of 325i ownership.

    ok so its not diesel mpg but its a hell of alot better on fuel then the impreza was.

    and even though its got approx 140bhp less than the impreza it still puts a smile on my face and its made me realise its not all about having as much bhp as possible.

    the 6 cylinder engine is loverly, smooth and revs from lower down the rev range than my old car making my daily commute a much more pleasant experience.

    Not to mention build quality and all the extra toys.


    anyhow ive got a few questions a quick search couldn't give me a definitive answer for so im off to post up some questions (in the relevant sections i hasten to add)



    cheers guys

    marc
