Hi all,

Hot hatch enthusiast here. Right now I have a Mk7 VW Golf, moderately modified, making mid 300's whp, flex fuel, tuned by myself with open source. I also have a mostly stock e36 328i that I drift occasionally. It's not in my immediate future, but the thought of my next daily has been on my mind for a while. At one point I thought it would be the new STI, but... we all know how that went... I've always loved the GR Yaris, it's the idealized hot hatch in my mind, the GR Corolla is a different vehicle, but it's got a similar spirit, and I feel like it's really the STI we all hoped for. I'm trying to buy a house, so I don't have the budget to reserve a GR Corolla yet, but I can easily see myself in one within a few years. I thought I'd introduce myself and maybe try to get familiar with the community, I won't have much to contribute though, so I'll probably be mostly lurking until I decide if I want to get more serious about it.

Welcome aboard!!

I've strongly considered a 2008 or older 323i/325i as a project car, until covid prices happened. They're awesome little cars with an absolute boatload of aftermarket support.

Yea, they're fun. I got mine in 2019, before the insanity. I feel like when I think BMW I think overcomplicated and expensive to keep running, but back then it was different. It just passed 300k miles and I still drive it to and from the track for drifting.

Yeah. They didn't used to be that way, but boy are they now. Most recent BMWs don't even have a dipstick or an oil drain plug.
