As she took it for a test drive with the salesman in the front passenger seat and 'old Dad' in the back, I was looking at the dash and thinking "I really like that dash ... but it's probably too wide for a Nova?"

    Anyway, what struck me was I'd much rather take the time to create something for my Nova rather than go to a dealer and buy an expensive car which loads of others can also do.

    So keep striving to be different!!

    There are BMW 3 series and there are BMW 3 series. The OLDER the better, newer ones depreciate each year, old ones, (pre-1989) go UP in value.

    My 1987 320i cost me 1200€ 6 years ago, now worth 3,800€ and I LOVE IT. Not every one can go buy one either, getting rare., gets nearly as many looks as one of our cars, (Nova/SS/Avanti)

    Nice profit Peter! I prefer the older ones too.

    As you might expect a 21 year old girl prefers to go for more 'bling' to show off, so hers is only 4 years old. I kept telling her, 'more bling means more to go wrong, and the more modern the car, the more likely it's a garage job so it'll cost her more' .... but ye cannae put on old head on young shoulders!
