I stumbled across this site while searching for a guide and thought I'd join up!
I'm currently driving a Calypso Red P-reg 318i SE saloon that I picked up a couple of months ago. It's only 107k miles with a full service history to back it up that I got for a good price through ebay. It does need a couple of minor things done but it's usual wear and tear, a good idea for joining this forum to learn how to sort things even if I'm not getting my hands dirty myself, yet!
I'm a man with a permanent tan (mixed race) and this is now my second BMW. I previously had a silver one (another "pov-spec" 4-pot SE) which was a year newer and had quite a few options such at ASC and Climate Control but I spent more on that bloody thing than I want to remember.
I've had more than a few cars (literally more cars than birthdays in fact!) ranging from a 1.0 Corsa B to a 2.0t SAAB so I've got a good knowledge of cars in general, just not the oily bits. Of course I had to have an Alfa (156) at one point too which handled like a dream til I wrote it off but that's amongst the 6 Volvo's, 5 Ford's, 3 Vauxhall's, and a few other random marques!
Anyone, enough of me talking about me, me, me and feel free to tell me who's who around here. I'm usually more of a lurker than a poster tbh, but if the chat is good I'll stick around and have some banter!
