    Hi guys (and gals),

    I've been lurking here for a while and thought it was about time i checked in and introduced myself. I'm from over the pond in the UK and run a Mazda MX5 (a Miata to you guys). I'm into all sorts of stuff car-wise, most of it tends to be "old" though - from E30 M3 Beemers to '68 Camaros, 80s Jap turbos and 70s Aussie muscle cars.

    Has been interesting to read some of the threads in here - especially stuff like the 2005 Elise, which had got some negative press from the traditionalists over here. I've noticed that a helluva lot of you have got E46 M3s too - never knew they were so popular outside Europe.

    Anyway, enough chat for me now - catch you around!

    Hi DB81,

    Welcome.:)

    There are a lot of M3s here on the coast, but less in the interior of the country. Although BMW still sells a lot more cars in Germany than here, we have become the number one market for M cars in the world.

    Hi guys, thanks for the welcome - I'm in the south east UK, not too far from London.

    What series M3s do you guys own then? I very nearly bought a E30 M3 a few months back but being LHD would be a pain in the backside over here - maybe i should move to a country that drives on the right!

    I have an e36 (US version) and an e46.

    Yeah its too bad you guys never got the e30. Good luck with the MX5.
