Hello to you, fellow petrolheads and worshippers of the ///M cult, My name is Robert and I've been on here for quite some time. Passively, reading that is, not posting. I figured it was time to contribute, having read numerous informative and amusing threads over the years, and with the distance between the UK and the continent only increasing, this might be considered an effort to close that gap at least a bit. I'm closing in on my 42nd birthday and live in The Netherlands. Over the years I've owned quite a few motors varying from several Impreza Turbo's (tuned and non-tuned), both GC8 and GD8 (the GC8 is called GT Turbo over here, the GD8 is the WRX Bugeye), fast Fords like the Mk1 Focus RS and Fiesta ST (absolutely loved those) and a first gen Porsche 996 with a manual and LSD. Pics available on request, but I'll stick to the more relevant cars for this forum. Back in 2011 I bought my first M3, a 1995 e36 Evo Saloon. I already had an e36 318i, which my dad had from new and it was my dad who lit the BMW-flame. I was practically born in an e21 318, and several e30's, e36's and e46's have come and gone since then. The e36 M3 is still with me, and I doubt I'll ever sell it. I was hooked since I saw the first ads and tests back in the 90's and pictures of an e36 M3 in Autobahn Polizei trim really hit hard: I had to have one when I "grew up". Well, here it is, at home: In 2017 I added an e46 M3 to the stable. I fell into the shortage-of-storagespace-trap and always seemed to be moving from service, to APK (MOT), to sensor here, tyres there, APK again, service and a major engine overhaul for the e36 after a catastrophic failure. The e36 had already continuously eaten into the automotive budget over the years, so I decided to lose the most reliable cars and get another M3. At least the total number of cars in my possession was decreasing. Anyway, enter the 2004 manual e46, photographed at home: While I wasn't really on the lookout for something else, in the summer of 2020 I stumbled across an e92 (I had my eyes on for a couple of months......). A previous experience in a manual e92 with Eisenmann exhaust was a bit underwhelming (but very LOUD!!!), so I had no real intention of getting into one. So I thought... The e92 has the no-Eisenmann option and I quite like it. I was a bit reluctant to let the e46 go, but I quickly got over that once the fluids in this e92 were properly warmed up. As a matter of fact, I came to the insight I should have gone for the V8 sooner. I haven't had the opportunity yet to take this one home. Hopefully 2021 will be a bit more pleasant in that respect. I did however get it detailed and glasscoated. Anyway, thanks for making it this far. I look forward to enjoying and experiencing the forum on the next level! Cheers!
