hi all on the forum,i spent ages and ages reading the forum before i signed up so hopefully i wont be too noobish!
im looking to dip my toe into e46 ownership having previously owned an e30 tourer and an e36 saloon(had the e36 first
and the e30 tourer was an ebay leap of faith for £300!) spent a good few years on e36coupe.com now im here!
Ive no idea what model im after although living in wales it will be a tin top! and im not put off by the 4 pots as the 316i saloon i had was huge fun around welshy mountain roads with a decent set of boots on and some attention put on the suspension first,that car was solid fun and i was sorry to sell it,but to be honest i was pretty darn happy with the lightly modded R33 skyline turbo i replaced it with!
i spent a lot of time getting the skyline handling nice although i never really totally got rid of the low speed understeer,then i went a bit rising sun crazy and imported myself a tidy white AE86 corolla with a trd diff for some more 4 pot fun,found out that while it was fun none of the designers were 6ft 7 tall so i sold that after about 18 months and then got a bit "scene" and got an r32 4dr to daily drive and put less miles on the r33
Then i had some strange fit of sensible and sold the skyline after totting up how much it was going to cost to do the next round of mods properly,then i distracted myself by getting the 318i e30 tourer and building silly stereo for a while,got bored with the size of space in the boot and got something bigger to build in,and thats where im at now, in a toyota picnic with barely enough power to drag the stereo around!
i need some more bmw in my life people!
