Having just changed jobs and with years of having diesel company car I decided to look for a car which would be fun to drive and own.
Hence, I bought a R170 2001 320 in silver with 90K on the clock. The best decision ever, as it is a delight to drive. It has the usually bit of rust around the panel edge and the “wood” trim around the gear lever has lifted and I need glue it down (any tips please?) but other than that it is good order.
I live in Bournemouth UK and I was wondering if there were any other member in this town.
Regards
Mark

Hi Mark, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

One of our mods will be along shortly to "officially" welcome you but in the mean time here are some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

I live in Bournemouth UK and I was wondering if there were any other member in this town.
We're not living there yet, but we're down there (well, north of Ringwood) fairly frequently, usually in Silkie but if we're out with our daughter then we hide in a 5-series. I'll keep an eye out for you when we're in the vicinity!

Welcome to the forum! It's a great place to be!
