    Hi all

    I've recently bought a 1996 328i coupe (my third, long story), and as my username suggests I didn't buy the most well maintained example out there. As a result I have spent hours reading threads on here whilst trying to get to the bottom of my numerous inherited problems!

    Having used and abused some of the expert write ups on here, I thought it would be rude not to say hi and thanks. I'm a (pretty novice) home mechanic, and while I have no expertise, I hope that I may be able to contribute something of use as I work through my various issues.

    Thanks again to those whose expertise I've already taken advantage of.

    I'll get some pics in the daylight tomorrow if you really want to see it!

    My main headache at the moment is the air con, which suddenly stopped getting cold the other day, though maybe I should be more worried about the chip in the windscreen, or the leaky transmission fluid, or perhaps the loose wheel bearing. At least it's less like driving around in a bouncy castle now I have new shocks all round!

    I should probably add that my (soon to be) wife has also recently acquired a BMW. Hers is a 2002 330d, and I have to admit I have a certain amount of car envy. In contrast to mine it's currently in perfect working order, and hopefully will stay that way!
