BMW 328i

Practical Classics (UK) - - CONTENTS -

The clas­sic signs were there: too much dream­ing about cars on hol­i­day, too much time brows­ing in­ter­net auc­tion sites. I’ve loved my time with Trig­ger the BMW 323i Coupé, which got me hooked on BMW’S mid-nineties E36 range... but what I re­ally wanted was a 328i. Its ex­tra 300cc and 25bhp de­liv­ers more torque at lower rpm, mak­ing it rapid

re­laxed – a mix that re­ally ap­peals to this par­tic­u­lar petrol­head.

Even­tu­ally a 328i Coupé popped up at a fair price, 57,000 miles from new, ser­vice his­tory and a long list of fac­tory op­tions. A quick phone call es­tab­lished that owner Peter Sorrell had clearly cher­ished his ‘week­end car’, so I hopped to his Barns­ley home. The car turned out to be near-mint and I drove it home with the widest smile! Un­for­tu­nately, my 323i coupé now needs a new owner. Fully fet­tled, look­ing smart and with just over 100,000 miles on the clock, it’s go­ing to be a great Nineties clas­sic for some­one. If you’re in­ter­ested, please get in touch.
