Purchased my first BMW today!!

Guys,

Been looking for a while now & found a 10 plate 325i with 9000 on the clock. Went down to the dealer today & everything looked straight, took it for a test drive & loved it! Very smooth drive & the sound of a six was just...yeah.





The car will unfortunately not have a garage, BMW talked of a protective layer called AGlaze, what are your opinions on this?

Chris

Is that an ex-demo? Seems low mileage? Beautiful car though Chris! Any mods planned?

Basically one from this page.

Nice one Chris.

A 325i? A classic as far as I'm concerned.

Welcome mate.
Looks a lovely motor, got the best m sport alloys as well.
I wouldn't bother with the AGlaze myself, just give it a good polish and wax yourself every few months.

No it was bought from a private seller that clearly didn't cover many miles!

Hi,

Its your first BMW and my first post on this forum.........lovely car, enjoy!

I still remember getting my first bmw (E36). Unfortunately, mine was not as new as yours, but, it was the start of a love affair with BMW.....and since then I've been fortunate to own several special BMW's.

Regards

M

I'm very happy with the look of it for now but if I was to consider my first mod, I reckon a rear lip spoiler wouldn't go a miss

Lovely looking car mate. Black grilles would look good with the white. Welcome to the club.
