    Hi all, just thought I'd drop in and say hello, I am the recent owner of a tired looking but mechanically sound purple E36 328i coupe. After driving a few Japanese sport-ish cars I thought I'd try my hand at euro sportyness. Only had the car a couple of weeks so still finding out it's little nuances, but so far so good (just don't mention the already fitted aftermarket alarm system that I like to call 'the car killer') Looking forward to gleaning some handy tips from all here on servicing/day to day running and ongoing maintenance. Thanks for reading and I'm off to trawl the site.

    Chris.

    thanks for the welcomes, I'll try and get some pics up over the next few days, (from a distance so you can't see the nasty bits) lol.

    with regards to the project thread not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet as I bought it on a whim, went out to get a 2.2 vtec Prelude, came back with a 328 oh well you pays your money you takes your chance. So far I'm impressed, did have to fit a new rear spring though as the old one snapped in two only found out at MOT time mind you at £22 it was a cheap fix.
