    Hello to all members of the forum young and old (like me).

    Having owned dozens and dozens of cars from Morris 1100 to Mercedes ML I am now the proud owner of a 330ci M sport and I have not stopped grinning since taking ownership. Power, speed, ride, handling and even the noise are "spot on" and returned 38mpg on cruise set to 70 on the mway! I enjoyed a E36 325i but this is superb. The M3 must be amazing and I am going to search one of those out

    I also have an MGB GT and it seems to me that a 6-cylinder would be a perfect engine for that!

    Need tyres - any recommendations for normal everyday road use?

    2nd day out in car set cruise at 70 and drove from Newport to Reading achieving 39MPG - brilliant!

    There is a genuine SAT NAV system in the boot (previous owner was upgrading) which I doubt I will ever get round to fitting. Condition unknown was going to offer it for sale through the forum before ebay.

    Yes was told it was complete. I was going to photograph it tonight for the experts on this site to comment on. There is a TV head unit, CD unit that fits by the CD stacker, wiring loom and the console panel to replace the storage bin / ashtray surround.

    Not sure how much as I can not test it out easilly.
