We didnt know anything about that meet ^^^ Just when we all registered this thread was thrown up by Hektic (ian) so we thought lets have a summer meet and chill, i chose that pub for meet as space and of course food and coke!! as drink driving is bad for ones license and of course others on the road But your welcome to join us if you want mate, think its 318's going mainly but a 330 we can drool over lol

EDIT: Just read that thread, that's all cars by looks, makes models etc, this is BMW obv being BMW forum lol

Looks nice mate, prob will be the best one there, ours are old and in need of TLC. I am waiting for cooler weather to finish my bonnet off and sort the door scratches from idiots with handbags and coats!! and a very tiny bit of rust near rear door (off side) then tip top.

Of what we have done? We justpost everything in "318 Get in here" May be we could start another thread of what we doing or going to do. Maybe easier to find. Or even completed stuff, similar to the thread "What have you done for your E46 today" under General

Yeh be good to see what you done with it now Dan. Try get us a recent pic up, saw the pic of ur old 318 looks brill great work and its def worth the 3k quoted, if I had it - Ide seriously be interested, then again I'll prob upgrade to a 320 or 325 if n when I move on from mine.

Bet this 330 pulls well then eh, whats the mileage etc, you must have sum dosh buyin that and still and sold ur former 3k worth of lovelys 318ings!

My local town of Leek has a newly built weatherspoons if that counts? likely to be extremely busy though as i was in there tonight

Buxton has pretty much nothing of the fast food variety, well nothing like mcD burger king etc, pub food is way nicer anyway!
