New here - just bought a 320si

Hi,
Just thought I'd introduce myself as I plan on hanging round here and joining in the fun!

I've just put a depsit down on a 320si - although now a little worried after reading all the 320 problems on here, would this affect my car as well?

Once I pick it up no doubt you'll be hearing a lot more from me - great forum btw!

cheers
Dan

Welcome Dan, Hopefully all the previous issues to do with the 320si will be eradicated by the time your new car arrives

Good choice of car by the way

Well isn't that strange, I heard the phrase "monkeyhangers" for the first time this weekend (I was at the Swansea v Bournemouth game and the guy next to me was talking about it being Hartlepool's nickname).

And no, I'm not Welsh, I was just visiting.

It's a question of 'promotional advertising'!

Welcome Dan and another northerner to boot

I'd forgotten the one about hanging the monkey and Hartlepool - we have 'yellow bellies' south of us in Lincolnshire.

I first read that as "...clicking on the legs." but I was apparently distracted.

Take a look at the toes of the second pair (from the right).
