Mein Auto: 325i M-tech Convertible
latest BMW

QUOTE=alexpress;7124478]The car has now been written off by the insurance company. After a lot of deliberation I have decided to let it go after 7 years.

On the up side I have seen later models at reasonable prices so I may go after another one or I have found a 523i SE with all the bells and whistles in a local salesroom. I am not in too much of rush to decide yet.

I changed the wheels on the car to the later style and I have a question about the original M3 style wheels. How do I know if they are original. I have no reason to believe that they are not since the car is an M-Tech yet can't tell if they are.


Just to finish off this story I did buy the 523i SE. It's full of technology and electrics but not a colour I would have picked given a choice but it is a nice car. It is auto with steptronic, manual and sport settings and is quite lively under a heavy right foot.

However it's time to change over to the 5 series threads so thanks for the help which I've had whilst on the E36 bit.

Regards
Alex

I looked in Haverhill to buy a house. Couldn't find anything I liked and could afford.

I love these wheels. Too heavy but they clean up nice. Hopefully get around to refinishing them when the weather gets nicer.
