Smile Hi from Norfolk!

Hi all,

I'm Jordan, 22 from Norfolk.

I'm an investigator/validator for an insurance company, live near Norwich in Norfolk.

Just treated myself to an e90 320D SE.

Not my first BMW, I had an e46 coupe and an e36 compact (I know..) in the past too.

Story behind it was for the last 2yrs I've owned a fettled 200bhp Vectra SRI CDTI, part exchanged it for a 2011 Astra J CDTI which I hated, luckily the garage I purchased it from gave me full part exchange value against the BMW - lucky or what!

Anyway here's my car, it wasn't my top choice colour wise but it's growing on me & I'm keeping my eye out for a leather interior.

So far I've wrapped the grill in 3M Gloss Black vinyl, my plans are leather interior, wheels and possibly a small drop.








Anyway the forum looks great & full of info and DIY's.. I'm off to see which ones I want to do!

Cheers

Postman delivered my log book, mot and tax with the private reg on today so I got that changed over tonight, pressed plates fitted






I love it, I think the plates look ten times better than they did on the astra/vec, maybe it's cause I've stuck them on rather than plate holders.

also fitted team Heko wind deflectors yesterday

Don't think I've ever seen that colout before! It would go well with a drop and a set of gold splits (in my opinion).

They were good as gold to be fair, had an issue & they sorted it no questions asked. Would recommend!
