Lived upto expectation

This is my second 3 series this e46 i bought from a relative with 19.000 miles on the clock genuine it hadnt been used much . It had a couple of issues because of lack of use like the temperature sensor playing up and the dtc sensor on the master cylinder sticking but a good brake bleed sorted it out.
The car is the m sport version its basic 4 cylinder but with extras like wheels full leather . I love the car because its just before bmw though all the bells n whistles on it and you can feel its a drivers car the only issue i have is the tyres there original and run flat and seen to skip on the white lines in the road. But its lovely to handle im more into a car that handles than speed . Modern cars are boring its like driving on the motorway and looking at b roads and wishing we could go back to the more slower pace of life bmw 3 series gives you the feeling of real motoring.
