Hi name is mark been around other bmw forums about 3 years or so ago, after the 3 year absence from a german car i'm back in one, previous bmw's include an E36 3.0 M3 and a E39 540i.
The car i've returned to bm ownership is a 2003 330 msport convertible, the cars been a bit unloved but its got potential and i will get some photos up soon along with progress as i get the issues with it sorted and it back to as it should be.
A bit more about me i'm car mad and my passions are trackdays and detailing, perhaps a little odd combo but can't help what i like.
You may also ask whats kept me away for the last 3 or so years well i defected to one of the best 2 seater sports cars ever in the form of a 1999 mk2 Mx5, before you all hate away it was a little of a needs must thing, costs at the time of running a juicy bm were to prohibitive and loving rwd cars i wanted something that was fun but also affordable, the mx fitted the bill perfectly, although in the last 18 months of ownership finding a little more disposable income meant i went a bit mad modifying it, the car was the perfect track tool taking scalps of alot more expensive and exotic machinery whilst playing in it, Briefly the mods included Bike Gsxr1000 individual throttle bodies, aftermarket management. full custom exhaust and a raft of suspension and brake upgraded parts,culminating in a 160bhp car that had a fantastic 160hp per tonne power to weight rating.
sorry guys i've got side tracked, i'm going to miss the old car but all being well the new one will be another i will feel as fondly of in the future, thanks for reading and hopefully theres some new friends and old ones to look forward too meeting in the future. heres the old car just to give you and idea what i'm about
