Go on introduce yourself...

Post by babybmwadmin » Tue Nov 13, 2007 12:42 pm

I've restarted this post again as the last one was waaaaaay tooooo long :)

As each day passes, new people join the forum.

It would be nice to know who they are, what they do, where they are from, what they currently drive etc.

So, please take a moment to add a reply to this thread introducing yourself.

Thanks

Hello all!

My names Josh, i'm 19, and i live in-between Salford & Harrogate.

I live in Manchester part time where i'm currently doing a degree in Music Production. (i'm a sound engineer on the side!). I spend 4 days a week in Harrogate, which is where i'm from. I work there currently, i am a partner in my fathers business.

This week i've just bought a 58 reg 118d 3dr M-Sport in black. Fantastic car. My sister has an almost identical model and i drove it for a few weeks over Xmas and fell in love with it. I had an Audi A3 2.0 FSI but got rid as it was costing too much in fuel & mechanical costs!... a word of advice, stay WELL clear from high mileage petrol Audi's!

Anyway, cheers. This forum seems great so far, loads of useful information on it.

Hi there. My name is Barny, I live in Northumberland and I have had for a couple of months now a 116d SE with comfort pack, in a sort of metallic black and on a 59 plate. I traded in my 11 plate Corsa Limited Edition 1.3cdti on a straight swap as I have a 150 mile round trip every day to work, and the Corsa was only giving me 41mpg even though VX's figures say 67mpg combined!!! I expected it to be less than that, but not over 25mpg less!!!! The best could ever squeeze out of a tank of diesel was 45mpg but to do that you couldn't go over 50mph! Seriously lacking a 6th gear basically.

Anyway, a valuable lesson learnt, and I certainly don't regret the change as I am getting over 50mpg consistently and that's with some more spirited driving through the twisties on my way home now that I have a little more power. I came across this forum anyway whilst researching remaps, like everything, you get a little more power . . you enjoy it for a while . . but then you always end up wanting more!!!!!!

This is the first BMW I have had and I am very impressed. I have been through a lot of cars as well, little bit of a petrolhead! Currently also run a 1991 Eunos Roadster, a 1987 Honda Civic GT and a 2008 Vauxhall Naffira 1.8i to run the kids around in, (yawn!!!).

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. Ive got a BMW 120d coupe, m sport model in white. Absolutely love it. I bought it a few weeks ago but it's been garaged while i sold my integra type r. So I insured it today and really realy like it. It's my first diesel and thought it would be sluggish and under powered but can't fault it. I'm very happy with it. I went for the 120d for economy really and looks. Compared to the Honda it's brilliant on fuel, insurance and tax are also cheaper.

I am going to collect my '57 plate 123d M Sport Coupe tomorrow- it is my first BMW and I am beyond excited. Switching from a Civic Type R is obviously a huge change and I hope it is going to be great.

Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum and say that it has already been really helpful answering questions in the run up to making my purchase

Cheers,

Mike

Possibly a bit late seeing as I signed up here a couple of weeks ago but I've only just spotted this thread so I thought I might as well.

I'm Liam from Scotland and after selling my supercharged VX220 and RS Clio 200 I'm looking for something a bit more upmarket. I am on the hunt for a 135i with cash in the bank waiting so hopefully I'll be able to post pictures of one belonging to me sooner rather than later. :)

Hello everyone :)

Just wanted to introduce myself, been having a browse round this forum and after a fairly short hunt bought myself a little Easter present :P ....

A lovely Sedona Red 120d Coupe :spotman:

Traded in our 520d M Sport Touring, which we got before our little one came along... Thought I'd need the space but found I didn't really and wanted something a bit more nimble and fun :wink:

Few pictures below, before my hubby has got to work with the polish and wax :)

Happy Easter and 1 Series driving to all

Cath :)

PS... Private plate will be being removed

Hi Folks,

I'm Kriminal (by name); currently driving an A3 S-Line Sportback, but looking to trade in for a BMW 1 Series Coupe (120/123D) M Sport, as I absolutely LOVE the look of these cars - not too big, not too small; suits my needs.

I'm in to car Detailing; just spent 3 days with the rotary on the A3 to get it where it should be, so will probably talk quite a lot about keeping 'em clean!

So, as I haven't got my Beemer yet, I guess you could say I'm a stalker!!...mwaaahahaha :wink:

PS. Don't go hating me cuz I'm driving an Audi :D

Ahhh so the trimming of this topic last week explains it all. I was sure I had made a post just before I got my car (mid Feb), and then logged on for the first time since just now and couldn't find it.

Serves me right for taking so long I suppose haha.

Anyway, got my 118d M Sport mid Feb, been busy since then and not had chance to post, so here are a couple of pics.

Hi folks,

I'm Chappers from Lincolnshire. I've just traded an Audi A6 Avant for a 2007 120i SE with all the trimmings in silver so I thought that I had best pop along here and say hello to you all. Although it is more compact than I've been used to, I absolutely love this little 1 series and can't believe I didn't make the move to BMW years ago!

Unfortunately since I picked the car up I haven't been able to prise the keys away from the wife, and it's been raining constantly so the only photo I have is a poor one from my phone, but as soon as a day off coincides with half decent weather I'm hoping to get outside with the wax etc and give it a good going over and take some decent pictures.

Hi

Just recently registered, looks a great site. I’m in the market for 5 door 130i M sport, so thought here would be a good place to start.

Previously owned a number of BMW’s, but have been away from the marque from a couple of years. Hope to be back in the fold soon.

Regards
Dave

Can I ask if there is a ‘Wanted’ area / section ?

The car I’m after is a 5 door 130i M Sport in LMB or black

Must have: Xenons, heated seats & ideally lest than 70k with backed up FSH & a manual gearbox!
Ideally 3 or less owners and factory standard (minimal mods accepted)

Any additional extras are a bonus, but not a requirement.

Looking at spending no more than 9K for the right car
