    Been on here a few days now reading the info and made a couple of posts so thought i best introduce myself

    the names dan and i am pritty active on www.astraownersclub.com , sold my zafira monday night and set on the hunt for a new car was looking at astra turbos but then realised i could afford to get a e46 (only wanted one for 6 years) looked around at some coupes but and said to my wife i want a 323 coupe or a saloon if it has a few options, so off i searched but kept coming up with some that were ok, then my wife said what about this one i had gone past 10 times plus uin 2 days due to having poor pictures so i read the description and realised it could be a little bargain gave the bloke a call and said i wanted to come and look at it tongiht and pay cash if the price was right went and had a look and took it for a spin 2hrs later and im on my way back in a 323 se with black leather 18" mv2's rear electrics etc very pleased with it,

    needed a few bits had to get the tracking sorted as it was out by miles then the passenger mirror sorted and now i just need to put the drivers window regulator in that is sat at home oh and i need to adjust the handbrake as it lifts higher than the arm rest and still doesnt work so thats a job for tomorrow.

    Welcome Dan to the forum. I was a member of AOC before i turned to the Dark side. I had a Astra coupe turbo, but it was giving me so much hassle(engine management)
    Since buying the Beemer i have never looked back, love it everytime i step into!

    Nice Beemer you got there, any future plans?

    Will

    im glad i didnt go down the astra coupe turbo route was very close to going and looking at one the day before i bought the bm, what was you username on aoc?

    going to try and keep it standard to some extent il oem upgrades really over aftermarket so im in the dilema of do i go ac schnitzer wheels or some new mv2's that are staggared as these arnt. most likely it will be getting a m-tec from bumper and boot lip spoiler maybe a steeringwheel as i wasnt the radio buttons adding at some point thats my current plans.

    My user name was just my name The Astra was quick, but it spent more time in the dealers workshop than on the road! But i must say the qaulity of the ride is uncompairable with the Bmw! The Bmw is totally a different class...
