....but been into BMs for a long time. retuned to 3 series ownership after a few years messing about with old escorts (the cars!). I have just bought a 2002 318i SE Saloon which im very impressed with. Had every variation of 3 series from E21 upto E46 + a 5 series E39. I promised the wife I would leave this car as BMW intended but having looked round the forum I have the urge to tickle it with the modding stick.
