Hello there! I am new here, although I have lurked around for a few months.
A bit about myself:
My name is Phil, I work as an apprentice for FordMC and have done so since September. I job has allowed me to purchase a car for myself, cheap and lowcost for the time being, but in time, I am looking to get a M3 E36.
My love for Bimmers came about when my old man took me outside to look at his new car back in '99. He had just bought a '97 P Reg BMW M3 E36 in Estoril Blue and grey vader leather. Man that car was incredible, but being younger at the time, paid no real attention to it. Then came '04 when he changed it for a E46 M3 in Carbon Black with the black leather. Now THAT car was superb, I loved that car, I still do, have some great memories of it - was sold back in '08 with 16k miles on the clock, for FAR less than it should have. I miss it a great deal - was replaced by a Jaguar (Ford )
However, now I work at Ford, its my turn, I am going to start looking around for a E36 M3 in Estoril/Vader in the coming months seeing how prices are reasonably low and purchase one hopefully in 2011 or 2012.
I'm sure I'm going to post some really stupid questions, but it will help me find my perfect Bimmer - so I'm going to apologise now :P
