Norwegian Fanatic

Greetings everyone!

My name is Bernt, and I'm an addict. Oops, Fanatic! I'm a 19 year old student from Norway. (Please excuse my English, as it's not my mother tongue.)

I fell in love with bmw when my father brought home an E30, I was probably around 9 -10 years old at this point. There was just something special about that car. When i turned 17, my father and I started looking for a car of my own. A car I could work on untill I turned 18, which is the age you can get a drivers lisence. My choise landed on a '95 E36 328i, which was pretty original exterior wise. I'm not sure if anyone's familiar with the Norwegian taxes and high priced cars? Here's an example, I bought the car for 75,000 Norwegian kroner, or 10563,38 USD. Yes, it's insane.

Car looked like this when I bought it:





As you can see, it was pretty basic. I was eager to start the project though, so I ordered a little package.



Finally I could start.
Now, I wont make this thread too long. But I'll throw in an after picture. Unfortunatly it's from my mobile. Never got time to take good shots of it. You see, Norway is pretty famous for it's shifting weather. I was driving home from school, and suddently I found myself driving in snow. Long story short, the car got wrapped around a tree. This was ofcourse 50,000 kr, or 7042 USD, after the initial price.



So, here I am. No bmw in my drive inn. And I'm a sad individual. I figured I'd always wanted an E46. No greater place to start looking then on one of the best, if not THE best, E46 forums I've seen.

Hi!

Best regards,
Bernt.
