FiRi's SO's 120d
A little less 2 years back, God blessed with the arrival of 2nd baby Boy, Muhammed. Those who are close to me, know how much his arrival meant to me and all the stress involved during the wife's pregnancy hence the joy that encompassed us on his arrival home 6 weeks after birth.

Muhammeds arrival meant a few changes that needed to be done. Shortly after he was born and we settled in, we had to start thinking of another car as a daily as the 2 door we using was no lomger pracrical.

It took us the better part of a year to decide what we wanted and the wife only had one thing on her mind, a nice compact e87 1 series.

Before buying a new car I needed to sell our old faithful 1996 Honda 150i civic. It served us for 8 years and we were and still are worried abiut the replacment doing the same.

The Car went off to the first person that came home to see it, and I was happy to see it go a new home where it would be looked after.

Pics of the Honda a few days before leaving with its new owner...

Towards the end of May, the replacement was found and the first diesel car in my family after 40 year made its way home. I still wonder what my Late dad would have said if he seen me buying a diesel, as he hated the sound of them 

People who were instrumental in helping me find the right car and giving me advise on what to look for was, Charles aka Twins , Rennzport aka Zaahier, Gert aka Obdworx (who specially went to view the car and run diagnostics tests for me) and Tris (for giving me values after values so I could make sure I wasn't overpaying). A Massive thanks to you all for your patience and help.
