    Hi all

    My name is Gaz and Im a new member. Ive loved BMW's since I was a kid and always said my first car would be a BMW. I only got my licence this year at 32 years of age which will no doubt surprise a lot of you. Since turning 21 I've travelled a lot and spent 4 years in college as a mature student so its only really now I can afford a car.

    I bought myself a 2004 318 Coupe in gun metal grey with standard 17" 7 spoke style 44 alloys. Car had 84k on the clock, full BMW service history and a new MOT. I got it at a great price so overall Im chuffed to bits.

    Now its time to tweak the car so it looks how I want. I'll be posting plenty of new threads looking for advice on the changes I want. Just a quick breakdown of what Id like to do, nothing too drastic.

    - Remove current standard seats and replace with Leather. Not sure what colour yet, either black or grey.
    - Brake callipers are quite rusted which you would expect on a 8 tear old car. Wanna get them cleaned up and sprayed. Interested to know if anyone has done this and how much it cost. Havent decided on a colour yet.
    - Want to replace the standard alloys with either MV1 or MV2 18" alloys. I will seek some advice on where is best to get a 2nd hand set and where to possible get a good price for mine. I know of eBay of course and gumtree but perhaps someone on here has a better idea.
    - There are a reasonable amount of stone chips on the bonnet and side wings. Id like to get them seen to.

    Anyway I'll post all these questions in a separate threads. Just wanted to introduce myself and let you all know what my plans are.

    Cheers
    Gaz
