Hi Ian from Stockport this is my 3rd E36 had a 318is M sport before this and was looking for a 328 to replace it. Spent the last 2 months looking for a decent low mile 328 to no avail. Eventually found one down in London so was going to head down last Monday but this popped up late on Sunday night. So i emailed the guy to arrange a viewing on route to the coupe Monday morning as it looked a minter. Well pulled up Monday morning seen it in the drive and fell in love with the look of it. A test drive later and we exchanged money, so didn't even get to see the coupe.
Absolutely mint no rust.

Just hit 85k but on the plus side picked up a few bits this week, managed to find a convertible armrest, seem very hard to pick up so was happy to pay £20 for this. Also a oil service pack from Opies and my ski hatch sub enclosure has arrived.
Looking to order my new wheels on Monday plus get my springs, shocks and bits for the suspension overhaul. Drove my old coupe the other day with the same setup and can’t believe how tired it is on the vert.
Been heavily researching audio so will get that ordered up a week on Monday ready for my install. Looking forward to all the boxes arriving and transforming every thing over a few days.
Did a small service yesterday oil, plugs, filters while under the car noticed that it had been poly bushed and had an x-brace fitted bonus. Oil wasn’t in great shape car runs quieter now.
Also attempted the arm rest fit pain in the ass especially when you don’t get given the longer bolts for the clamp, so picked up longer ones today with washers and will fit this afternoon. Won my wheels on the bay so picking them up next week. All coming together.
Been looking for some contours but seem to be stupid money, so bagged these up 3l sunflowers with a least 7mm on Michelins.
Well managed to get the wheels fitted this morning so gave it a quick as rinse as 500 motorway miles took its toll, and snapped a few camera phone pics. Just need a slight drop on the back and 30mm or so on the front. Nearly have all the stereo stuff so will crack on with that in a week or so. Thanks for looking.
Small update went on the bay last night to purchase an illuminated gear knob and some how ended up with an Avus blue hard top for an absolute steal. Made an offer last night and whizzed down to Derby this afternoon and picked it up, can’t believe how little noise there is in the cabin once you get used to the normal roof.
This means the stereo install wont all be for another week but had to jump on this, gave her a quick wash so here are a couple of pics of the phone.
Couple of small purchases or steals over the over the last few days, fitted the head unit yesterday cant believe the sound difference over the stock business tape player with stock speakers. Just waiting on the last few bits for the stereo upgrade. Also the wind deflector means nearly every day now is a topless day Almost LOL.
