@first: Please excuse my horrable English :oops:

Hy my name is Herbert, i am 32 years old and i am from Austria (not Australia!!!) Since i got my drivers license i tune and restore cars. My last restauration project was a BMW E30 325i convertible from 1991.

After finishing this project i bought a BMW e46 M3 an built it to a weekend race track car.

Now it was time to begin a new Project - and so i bought a 323 S-Edition with 213k kilometers from 1982 (my birth year :banana ) and began to restore:
