I've just joined the forum and wanted to say hello.
I have just bought a 2002 330d SE in navy blue. This is my first BMW so I have a lot to learn and I can see that there is a wealth of information on this site so I'm looking forward to reading some threads and broadening my knowedge.
From what I can establish from the history my car was first registered in Northern Ireland, the service record shows garages in NI and the Irish Republic and came over to the UK earlier this year. It's in fairly good condition - the main bodywork issue is quite a few stone chips on the bonnet - it doesn't bother me too much at the moment but I might consider a repray of the bonnet at some stage. I have got it booked in to a local BMW specialist for them to do a full diagnostic check to see if everything is as it should be. It doesn't seem to be running quite as smoothly as should be - this is particularly noticeable at town speeds once the engine is fully warmed up.
So far that's about it, although I have ordered some new wheel centres to replace a couple of faded ones, and a set of Thule roof bars and cycle carriers.
At the moment I also have a 1999 Rover Mini Cooper and a 1997 Volvo V70 T5, although the Volvo is for sale now that the BMW has arrived.
All the best
Jay from Colchester
