So everyone knows a little more about the members here, post some information about yourself.

Where you live, age, car etc. Can be as little or as much as you like!

I'll kick her off

I’m based near oxford, Car is used by my girlfriend for work. Its a 323Ci SE which we bought 8 months ago.

We've had the sub frame tear issue, which was fixed 100% by BMW. Apart from that it’s a good car. Possibly looking to get a face-lift E46 330(maybe) later on this year/next.

Get your ugly mug up on our photo thread, HERE!

Hey all! Think I should tell you who I am as I've been using the site already.

My names Rich and I live in Nottingham. Im 25. I've got the BMW bug bad but I come from the old skool E30zone.net

I drive a 330Ci not sure what the full spec is yet but thats on my thread in general E46. Only just got it and I don't know where to or even if I should start to modify it.

Anyway no kids that I know of.

Heres a pic of my un washed car

Well I guess I best do the same as you lot.........

Funny enough my name is Steve.......31yrs old married with a 2 1/2 yr old, live around the basingstoke area, this is my second BMW, had a E36 316 3 Yrs ago, great car,

and kinda turned me into thinking how the hell can a car be made this well...........then it broke.......haha

So I was atually after an E36 M3 Evo......but decided to get the E46 shape instead, looked more chunky and solid, and the spec is crazy......also the power is only bout 50bhp off a normal

E36 M3!!

Job wise I keep you lot safe from terrorists and other mad loons, dress in black, play with guns and do a lot of training and waiting around for for an interestring job!

...... B) been doing that for 2 years now and absolutly love it!!!

Hello,

My name is Francesca. I am 22 and I live near Oxford.

I am the girlfriend of Sam...

I drive a 323Ci in Titanium Silver. But would love an Alpine White Coupe any day!

When we bought the car we were told it was one of the main BMW show car's for the new E46. Its first owner was BMW Germany, and was bought direct from the factory in Germany to the UK. It seems to have been kept in nice condition.

I have a love for E30's and E46's.

Hi all, just heard about this place from e36coupe.com, so thought I'd sign up in support!

About me : married? yep! Kids? Numerous!

Am a self employed sparks live in NW London with the wife and 3 young'ns.

The Car: I love four doors, I love auto's, and I love fuel economy(!) So I've got a 318i 4-door auto and have cherished it with love and oil changes constantly. B)

Tried to stick with oem mods for the 3/4 years I've owned it, although I did fall for 19" bbs alloys and some other subtle changes :D

DSC03613.jpg

Had the car remapped, and an exhaust mod is the only other thing I've done recently, (plus the usual ongoing maintenance B) ) but as always, theres more on the To Do list monies permitting..
