New BMW owner in Hamilton

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

New to the world of BMW's. Have a mate at work who's been hounding me to buy one so finally gave in! Picked her up on the weekend and have absolutely fallen in love! It's an 87 325i in manual. The plan for the time being is to recover from the initial expense then a few of the basics, suspension refresh, exhaust, and eventually a respray.

Nice. Did you attend Berkley middle school by any chance?

Thanks! Can’t get enough of driving it.

And no I didn’t, I’m originally from Auckland, although I’m curious to what made you take that guess?

Thanks Pete, it's in need of a good cut and polish, a few bits of the kit could line up a bit better but other than that the condition is bloody good for 200kms. No idea how I managed to not buy one before now...

Photo background looked like another Scott's house here in Hamilton.

Ahh, no sorry must be a different Scott, although he sounds like a top bloke so far :P

@M3AN haha it looks a lot better in the photo, there' the begginings of rust in 2 wee spots and it's covered in chips (paint, not potato). Priority though is to just enjoy it and tackle that stuff in a year or 2.
