    hi there . just thought i'd introduce myself . i'm david , 37 from glasgow . i've just got my first bmw , a 1997 318ti coupe . and i love it ! i had never looked at bmw's before , i have to admit , but this was a bargain and it's in mint condition . it's my first automatic too and it is a dream to drive . i'm trying to upload some pics but it wont let me . i was looking for some opinions on what mods to do first ( i can't help myself when it comes to messin about with cars ) lol . anyway i've been looking around the site and you guys seem to know your stuff so i hope to get some pics up soon and get a bit of advice .

    hi . thanks for the welcomes guys . i finally managed to get some pics up . i paid £1295 for my first beemer and it's in great condition for the year . i hope to get started on some mods as soon as possible . i was thinking of tinting the windows blue , colour coding the skirting and a new set of wheels ( 18's i'm thinking ) . i'll probably remove the towbar too , but the last owner has cut a bit out of the bumper to fit it so i would have to get that sorted . any suggestions would be appreciated . thanx . david

    Welcome along.
    My suggestions for the first mod? Get rid of/change any chrome trim.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.
