LOL soyank.

We were up round Wensleydale and then came back via Catterick and that superb "tank road" from Leyburn to Catterick Garrison.

I like Leyburn. Can't say I like the drive to Hawes from there but the drive to Richmond and over to Catterick Garrison isn't too bad.

Welcome to the forum, judotaffy. Apparently you don't yet know the drill. You need to enlighten us all on what your "new" car has on it. You're about to get a whole lot of questions about what you plan to do with it, how fast is it, will you be taking it to "the Pod", and other such enquiries. Better start now with accruing the answers.

Oh, and pictures; lots of pictures. This lot can't read very well.

Hey guys, New here, recently upgraded from a 2000 VW Passat 2.3 VR5 to a 2005 BMW 325i SE, And loving every minute of it, So far I've changed the headlights from the standard halogen to 5300k and 4300k, and tommorow/later today I suppose I'm changing the foglights to 4300k too. Bought an AC Schnitzer replica spoiler which is getting painted as we speak so yeah, heres some pictures of the car (from the day I picked it up).

Hi guys, I joined last night so I guess I better introduce myself. My name is Lawrence and yesterday I purchased a 57 plate 320d M coupe for myself and my wife to share. It's an auto (wifes decision) and has red leather interior. I went to collect it from my local Sytner dealer only to find that it had been scratched! The guys at Sytner gave me free servicing, a respray and supa guard treatment as an appology so I was quite chuffed. It does help that my uncle works at the dealership I suppose so I was helped a little more than your average guy. So now I await the phone call to pick up my beautiful car, I am too excited lol. I hope to do some track days and meet up with some luke minded enthusiasts.

Sytner in Birmingham on Summer Row. They were really helpful and the service was great, it was just a shame about the scratch. We now wait in excitement for the day when we can finally collect our motor. We have a weekend away planned to give it a good run.

Hi everyone

Ive been back in a BMW for about 6 months now (since the dreaded audi incident) so only thought it right to join the forum to share some ideas and have a good chinwag with some like minded enthusiasts.

My car is a 2006 320d SE with sports interior, sports steering wheel and bluetooth, ive fitted the 17" m sport rims and recenty hacked the droopy exhaust off and fitted a twin 70mm tail pipe, im planning a few mods in the near future and look forward to getting some decent advice and hearing what everyone thinks on here.

Hey there members.

My name is Glynn, from Essex. I am at the moment driving a 3 door 120d M sport with Eibach springs, performance front brakes, csl alloys, black grills, carbon splitters and Evlove map. (this feels like speed dating )

I am soon to be getting either a 335i or 335d at the end of September after my wedding and honeymoon

But wanted to ask you guys some questions before making my decision. I have been reading this site for a while so have seen the many pros and cons but wanted to know if anyone can shed some light for me ref a few things. Also have driven them.

Will post up a new thread.

Thanks,

Glynn.
