Hi, I'm Steve. Although I've been a member of the forum for a while, I have only recently joined the fold by purchasing a 2001 E46 318 Ci so I thought I had better introduce myself. Originally I joined the forum for reasearch purposes with the intention of purchasing a BMW Touring either 3 or 5 Series however after a small accident in my Fabia VRS (rolled it over, very low speed accident) I needed to find a replacement car quite fast and came across the Coupe (or BOB as it is known by my two little girls) and so far have no regrets.
As it is my first Bimmer I didn't know what to expect and got to admit I wish I had purchased one alot sooner. Obviously it is nearly a ten year old car, and needs a bit of cosmetic attention to the inside (basically the drivers "A" Pillar trim replacing and two new door seals), the N42 engine shows no signs of leaks and runs nicely (just had the coil packs changed the week before I purchased it).
No Mods as yet apart from Gateway Ipod Connection and Parrot Bluetooth kit (with connects2 interface to use steering wheel controls). Looking forward to being a member of the forum.
