    Steve's new motor.

    Well, didn't go car shopping or have any idea of a replacement for the M3, things kind of fell into place. Emil contacted me about the m3 and mentioned he was going to sell his e39, my interest was tickled so we agreed a px deal with the m3.....

    I did fancy something a bit more relaxed an this ticked all the boxes as I was well bored of e36's. it's a 530i sport individual, pretty much loaded with everything. Such a nice smooth drive and goes well when you want. Auto box is smooth an the handling is great. Done about 100 miles so far and it's hard to believe its 10 years old the way it drives and feels. Build quality is awsome. Anyway, enough waffle and here are some pics.

    Nice one Steve!

    I asked Emil about this just now because I really liked it when he had it

    What are your plans for it Steve as you have the Passat as your daily?

    Cheers guys. No real plans for this one. It's gonna go in march when the baby is due as I will need something a bit more economical...
    Ill add an iPod link and give it a polish. That will do for a bit. Pity it's not a 3.0 diesel or it would be a keeper for sure. Fantastic car...
