    Hi everyone,

    New to the forums. Currently running a Vectra 2.5 SRi, not a terribly respectible car but she's done me proud for the last 2 and a half years. Looking to upgrade in the next month or so though, hopefully to an E46 330i.

    Looking forward to my first RWD ...

    Welcome. There are absolutly zillions of 330i's for sale day in day out, take your time to find a genuine good one rather than ones that's cheaper. 330i's are easy enough to maintain (but they need to be maintained), they are easy to clock so just don't rush your purchase.

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone.

    Vectras get a bit of a hard rap but yeah they're great for what they are, cheap, relatively reliable, just a bit of a PITA when they need a new clutch like Boostist said

    Thanks for the advice DSK, gonna look out for a really nice one, like you said there seem to be quite a few around.
