Default Hello from Scotland !

Hi there

Just thought of introducing myself. Been reading the forums for over a year, finally decided to join last week to talk to others who share similar interests i.e. cars and everything about them !

I am 23 and have been living here for the last 8 years and am self-employed.
Born in Delhi but lived overseas all my life. Work keeps busy but cars is what keeps me occupied in my free time ( mostly driving, test driving and just pretty much anything ). An IT graduate and post-graduate degree holder from Australia and UK, I dort of went in a totally different direction and became sore of a facilitator of imports and exports around the globe.

Currently drive an Alpine White '10 635d and loving every moment of it. Die-hard BMW fan so far and have owned a white 330d, a white 318d and a white 120d in the past ( big fan of the color white ! ). I do a lot of miles ( 30 - 50 miles everyday ) so diesel works out great that way.

Next planned car is a white Lamborghini Gallardo or a white M6 ( if things go good in life ) in 3-4 years. Insurance and cost of running is a big concern but will see when it comes to changing the car. Right now, things couldn't be any better on the 635d :-)

The things I have read and seen on the forum look and sound exactly like all the different variety of things I can talk about, hence, took the plunge and joined.

Anyways, hopefully we shall have some nice interesting conversations about cars and get the ball rolling.

Here are some pictures of the car for some visual pleasures :-) :

Welcome aboard. May be you can help people about the starting problem in winter with diesel cars. How have you been cooperating with it? May be its a silly question but do they have some special feature in all the cars since its a cold area.

I hadn't really thought about it. The coldest temperature I have come across is -14 degrees and all I did was put the key in and pressed the button. The engine started just fine. I am not too sure about this but I think they do put some low-temperature resistant stuff when the car goes in for servicing. Might have to get back to you on that.

I'm sure you will enjoy your time

Take care
Cheers
