: : : Derin please ring,or e-mail me about your trip down south and we can try and work something out about going down together,thats if you dont mind,for all you know I could be an axe wielding maniac!!!!!!.No but seriously I want to go down with a view to buy a M3.I think you're right when you say the Intergrale is a bit fragile,a friend of friend swears by them,but admits they're a bit flimsy and never out of the garage but he's a die hard Lancia fan for now or until he's drives and M3 which he said he would do,mine if I get one!!.So keep in touch and have a great Xmas and new year.Incidently my friend drives an 86 M535i and your right it leaves my touring for dead!
See ya Soon.
: : : ...down to see them at the Independent Motor Company immediately after the New Year for the very same purpose! I spoke to them just 2 days ago to talk about their current stock.Seems their prices are more reasonable than Munich Legends, who I also contacted.They were quite helpful as my other idea had been to get an Integrale - was worried that they might be a bit too fragile for our weather and they openly confirmed this and told me they are gradually stopping trading in these as they break all the time!
: : : I have an M535i which I'm looking to trade-in or sell to fund the cost of getting an M3. I also have a 3.0CS which will need to go - it's up for sale in the current BMW Car magazine (had a call from a guy in N.Ireland who sounds quite interested).
: : : Incidentally, we've just purchased a 325i Touring that my wife drives! Seems we have very similar tastes in cars!!
: : : I'll let you know how I get on at the Independent Motor Company.
: : : Cheers

: .. about going down to Reading to see these people.
: I had planned to go down with a friend and fellow BM fanatic (from Kilmarnock) whose looking for a 635csi Highline. He's recently sold his 535iSE for £6500 (- stunning car!).
: However, I couldn't get the time off between Xmas and New Year and he's going down to see two cars next Thursday so I can't go with him.
: I'm looking to go as soon as I can after the millennium (depends on work). I'm also in the process of putting my M535i and 3.0CS up for sale
: (I accumualate BM's like flies round shit!)- one of'em has gotta go!
: I'll ring you soon ( best not over Xmas - you know families and stuff?!!)
: My wife loves the 325i Touring by the way. I think it's nice but to be honest I've been disappointed by the performance - the difference between it and my M535i is shocking!
: Anyway speak to you soon!
: Merry Xmas
