Hi, names Rory and I live in the Kruger National Park area of South Africa. I am an Aircraft Engineer on Super Puma (Oryx) helicopters. Have owned BMW's since school days. Now 42 years old and have just got my hands on a beautiful 1996-7 318iS. She is spotless inside and out, although there is a heavy fuel consumption problem lurking under the hood. I will ask more about that later. Love to work on BM's and have done a lot of work on 325i M50s. Mine was crashed and totaled by my friend while he was taking me to hospital after a mild heart attack. I was cured by the crash!!!! Anyway I really hope to be able to get and give help in this forum. Very glad to be part of it.
