Greetings from Germany!

Post by GLEn » 28 Sep 2014 11:24 am

Hi @all!

I own a '84 :360: GLE 4-d sedan and the car just got the german "H-Number", which makes it a veteran car. sm4
The car is with our family for 17years now and still going strong! It was my first car and I still have so much fun with it.

I live in the south of germany near Karlsruhe and I love to play around with the 360 on small country roads, where the car really comes into action.

Because it is a long time since I last saw a 3-series around (except mine of course :lol: ), I thought about taking a look around for other 3series owners. So I came across this site - and here I am. :D

I wish you all a safe journey on every road!

Welcome to the forum! I can't remember the last time I saw a V300 on the road in Germany that didn't belong either to me or to some other forum member :-) Well done on joining the "H-club"! 190€ road tax instead of 500€, entrance to city centres ... superb.

That's dear!

I'll shall in future refrain from bellyaching about Irish Motor Tax rates. (I've just shelled €56 out for another year on the BB)
