Afternoon all.

New to the forum this afternoon, not new to BMW as such though.

I'm 21, and April last year, for my second car I purchased a 1994 BMW 318i SE Saloon, which I loved. Owning over spring/summer I took great pleasure in washing and waxing it every 2 or 3 weeks and never lost the excitement of getting into the car and getting behind the wheel of it. It started to have one two problems and I was paying a lot for insurance and thought I should get something newer (Ford Focus). But it just couldn't match my other BMW in any department, and as of nearly a month ago, I'm a BMW owner once more :D

Got this beauty, a 318iS 2dr Coupe, 1999, only 65k on the clock and full service history, this has been really well looked after and I've continued that so far!

Bought clear indicators and side repeaters which I intend on putting in this week and when I can afford it I want to get the sportier looking tail lights with the smokey indicators. Then I plan to get some 17 or 18" BMW MV2 Alloys on it and leave it at that. Although I might be swayed into getting some angel eyes but we'll see ;)

Hi Joe9087 and welcome to Bimmerforums UK, good intro and good to have you on board with us :thumbsup

The Coupe IS low mileage for the year, how many previous owners?

If it were me I would also ditch the chrome grill, but then I don't like chrome :hihi
(I shall now hide while the chrome huggers come in here ;))

Thanks for the welcome ;)

Only had 2 owners before me, one had it for 8 years. Its only done 20k in the last 5 years and BMW service's up until the last one about 3k ago.

Hmm I hadn't thought of doing that with the grill, what would you do then, just have a black grill?

Yep I would have a black one, or colour code just the outer chrome part, actually I would have to stare at it for a while to make my mind up :hihi
