    evening all, new bloke alert.
    bought an E36 318I on e bay a few days ago, going to pick it up sunday. pretty old [94] and a bit 'leggy' [137000 on the clock], but it cost half a week's wages [and i'm not richard branson], as i fancied something interesting as a commuting/second car.
    i had an E30 318 many years ago, and test drove a 316i light years ago, and i'm mildly excited.
    could be a nightmare money pit too!
    more news when i've got it.

    car was a pile of junk - every panel was damaged or rusty - even the roof!, the interior was falling to bits, the wheel rims were mangled, it had a silly noisy pipe on it & the spoiler was hanging off the boot. on the upside the motor sounded ok!
    needless to say i walked away, the seller wasn't too happy, but he should have described it more accurately.
    so - anyone got a half decent E36 for under a grand in or around cheshire??
