    Just put a deposit down on my first car :D

    Thanks to everyone who helped me out. In the end I went for a 330d Sport from Car Giant

    Apologies for the rubbish pics below, but it took 6 hours for me to decide and when I was done it was dark :o.

    Specs:

    November 2002 '52'
    Colour: Met Black
    Fuel: Diesel
    Gearbox: Manual
    Specification: ABS brakes with Traction Control, Airbags (multiple)
    Air-conditioning, 18" Alloy wheels
    Multi-Stack CD-Player, Central Locking
    Cruise Control, Electric Mirrors
    Electric Windows (front & rear), Full Leather interior
    Multi Function Steering Wheel, Parking Sensors
    Power-Steering, Radio-Cassette
    Rear Head-Rests, Rear Spoiler

    I am chuffed to bits with it. They had a selection of four to choose from there, and am pretty sure I picked the right one. I fell in love with the the second I hit 2000rpm on the test drive :D

    I had a great experience at Car Giant and would highly recommend it - they filled a whole warehouse just with E46 BMWs :eek:.

    I'm picking it up on Wednesday, so more pics then. :)

    Beautiful motor, I envy you :p
    I'm thinking of visiting Car Giant tomorrow to take a look at their selection of Mondeos. Its good to know someone has a had a good experience :)

    You say this is your first car, I'm assuming you meant the first car you have owned rather than driven, otherwise -> :eek:

    He's 24-ish I think? :o I've known him for years and don't know his age, lol.

    He's been lucky to have a company car for the past year or so.

    Nice buy Nick! I'm sure you'll be very pleased :D Looking forward to seeing it at the next meet.

    Well, I lie a bit, I have a company leased Golf Mk5 atm, but this is the first car I've bought :p

    I loved Car Giant, it was like the most awesome day out. We spent over 6 hours going looking at cars, it was just the best day ever! The staff seem very helpful, and very honest - rather than pushy and slimey like most staff in dealerships.

    I was given the keys to several Beemers and left to play around with them on my own (although not drive them), then went on supervised test drives. I look young, but they treated me with total respect - I would imagine that if I went into a BMW dealership they would have sent me packing the second I set foot in the showroom.

    I'll go back to being goo goo eyed over my pug then, the 272 mile trip with it today did not put me off it one bit.

    Visiting my uncle and getting the car at the same time, it belonged to his best mate. Not an awsome deal but still good, he would of put it on the forecourt (manager of Pug' dealership) for £2500 expecting £2200, sold it to me for £1800 chucked in a fair few extras and filled it to the brim. Never been that far north before.
