Welcome along, I'm up in North Somerset but got friends down in Ilminster.....IIRC bought the last but one van from Yeovil.

Nice M3, one of the last of the line 3L saloons, and great in black...do miss mine but the 540 makes up for it!!!

Yes it is, the build date was Jan 1995. I would change the carpet and seats in there if it wasnt such a pain (dash out job)

But apart from that its lovely.

Got a few things I am going to uprate just so everything else can keep up with the engine :)

Do you guys have any meets etc? I come from the Fast Ford scene and shows are everywhere :)

Nothing organised officially....but theres occasional meets in the area that generally get a good turn-out.

Theres a pistonheads meet in Bristol 2nd Sunday of every month and a pistonheads 1 is coming up at Cheddar as well.

My old coup was one of the last before the change over to the Evo and it never missed a beat...loved it, espec with Supersprint backbox and decat. Had really wanted a saloon but most at the time were dogs with fleas or completely OTT on price.

Yeah I paid 5500 for mine around 3 years ago with 96k on the clock, I am the third owner.

I must admit there was cheaper at the time but none was as tidy as this one. Still chuffed I got it to this day
