I finally made the switch to BMW after many years of quietly desiring to.
I've many years of working and improving/enhancing various cars, most of those were old Fords, primarily RS variants. I've always had an attraction to BMW's for numerous reasons, however only now have I taken the leap.
My previous car was a VW Golf 2.0 Gti which I purchased to be 'normal and comfortable' over any particular desire to modify or tweak. It served me well and was a super reliable and confident motor. It was a sad moment when I let that go in order to switch to the beamer I just bought.
I was taking my neice around some garages looking for a cheap run around for her work when I encountered a black 320td SE Compact and immediately couldn't leave it alone. Couple of days later, I was back and bought it. I've only had it a few days so far but my jaw hurts from the big grin. I'm absolutely loving it.
Here are a few pics (taken from garage website from sales advert). Since getting it home I've already polished and waxed it and its looking gorgeous, will post more pics in due course.
Haven't decided how and what I may modify about it, if anything, yet. Being a former Ford guy, the quality and reliability is quite alien to me and I know next to squat about BMW specifics, hopefully that will change here
Just wanted to say hello and look forward to participating in this community
