Just a quick hi!
I got my first BMW in 97 - a used 520i 24v. It gave me the taste!
The following year I thought I'd buy a new one with all the spec I wanted, but then got seduced by a 3 series ex demonstrator at the dealer's.
So I ordered a new highly specified 520 and bought the E46 to keep me happy until my new one arrived. The salesman told me I'd only make small loss on the E46 when it came time to trade in.
HE LIED! He expected me to take a £10,000 loss on the E46 after just 2 months!
So I kept the E46 and I still have it. A real beauty - but very bad exterior (I got married in 2005 - so it suddenly acquired lots of dents and scrapes!)
What's brought me here now is that I have just bought (at auction) a 325d SE Touring (E91). It's loaded with extras and totally fabulous!
I think I got a real bargain. I couldn't quite believe it when the hammer went down at the auction and the auctioneer confirmed I'd won!
So I'll be full of questions over the next few weeks, and I can probably help others with my long term knowledge of my E46.
