Bought an N reg/95 E36 328i touring at the weekend. Had to collect it in
Bournemouth, a 600 mile drive from Aviemore!
We were meant to fly down but due to all the chaos at the airports we
got a hire car instead, a Merc E200. Not a bad car at all, but the
location of cruise control stalk so close to the indicators had me
constantly choosing the wrong one - most annoying. Nice, but not a BMW
by any means. Horrid dashboard design too.
Pair 1300 quid for the touring with 114k miles, just needs a damn good
clean as the last guy wasn't a "car guy". What I can't believe is that
we managed 40+ mpg on the return journey, outstanding! Loads of power
too, didn't handle at all like an estate car ;-)
Only one problem, it pulls to the left. Calipers are OK and wheels turn
freely. I'm going to swap the front tyres to see if that's the problem.
Failing that I'll try an alignment. Any other ideas?
