    Hi, this is my first post so its only fitting that I introduce myself. Im Nathan, just picked up my first BMW. Its a 1997 316i compact, a light on the power i know but i have just come from driving classic minis for the last 9 years. The plan is to run the 316 for a bit as a second car. Then when the wife sells her car I want to upgrade to a one that is a little newer BMW with a few more cylinders. The father in law has had BMW's for years and they have never let him down and on top of that im a bit of a fan of what i call ruthless german engineering.
    A little on me, I am just about to leave the Royal Navy after 12 years service, I have had a varity of different cars over the years ranging from my first car a Renault 11 that i got for less that a fiver (taxed & MOT'd), Mazda 323 4x4 turbo, and loads of minis. I am a engineer by trade so i plan to do most things that the car needs myself if i can.

    Cheers for reading, looking forward to talking to as many of you as i can. Nathan
