Mein Auto: BMW 318i 1981 model
Wink Hello from Australia

Came here looking for fellow enthusiasts that just love their Beemers. I am just letting you all know that I have arrived lol.
This was my dream car for the last 20+ years, finally got one at the age of 41, I am now 44. I absolutely love it. She has some issues (needs a service/tune) but drives like she is on rails.

G'Day from Bathurst, I'm a BMW bike rider, considering an older BM sedan for a run around (and cheaper road trips than my Nissan Patrol).

Good to see plenty of support for the older BMW's here. I always loved the E21 323i when it was first released and remember seeing heaps of them being driven by yuppies around North Sydney. It took me 30 years to get mine and I have owned later models in the meantime, but they will have to pry the keys to this one out of my cold, dead hand.

Mein Auto: 335 Coupe 6MT/535 Touring
G'day Tasslehoff!

Nice car; good luck with her.

Welcome to the 'Fest. Lots of good info here -- usually :-)

I lived south of Canberra for a bit and have mates in Bisbane and Morree. Occasionally back to NT as well on business.

Cheers, ED

PS: what does petrol cost you these days per litre?

welcome to the site, I had one of those at one time. Nice car, but can be a handful in the wet with that trailing throttle oversteer
