    Hello :)

    Hi,

    First post here, and currently a pre-BMW owner rather than a true owner .

    My name is Andrew, from Cardiff. I'm 30 and have been driving 11 months... I know :(.

    Fortunately my father is a mechanic who has had his own business for 25 years, and has owned a number of BMWS in his time (e34s, e36s, e38s, e39s and a couple of e53s), amongst a range of other vehicles. I've had the pleasure of driving a couple of BM's myself, having first started to learn at 18 in a e36 325tds, some light driving in a e34 and borrowing my fathers e53 (3.0d) for a couple of weeks to help with wedding preperations.

    I'm currently in the market for a e38, primarily a 99+ facelift model, 728 or 740 but haven't quite found what I'm looking for... plus I should probably not be spending the money considering I have a car right now and some debt left to pay! (Hyundai Elantra XD...). Whilst my father has an '06 CLS320 CDI at the moment he's said on many occasion that the E38 was his favourite car to drive. I have recently been tempted by some e39 535s as well. With my father being qualified to fit LPG conversions the larger engines are still an option from an economical point - for my massive 6 mile journey to work (and weekend fun of course ).

    There's a huge amount of information here and hopefully, when I do make the plunge in to the BMW world I'll post some pictures up. In the meantime I'll lurk, no doubt

    Thanks

    Veg (Andrew)

    Hello mate, and welcome to BFI

    Go for the 740, rather than the 728
