    I dont think I will be going quite that far (obviously). I am super keen to keep her looking as close to stock as possible with a couple of M3 bodywork tweaks (front splitter). Definitely interested in the 328i though...

    yea well like steve pointed out the engine swap is probably the better option as straight away you will gain 20bhp, the 328i can easily be tuned using the inlet and throttle body conversion, that with a decent pipe, induction and remap you can achieve around 230-240bhp depending on how manyhorses the donor engine has dropped over the years.

    mine has got just under 145k on the clock and as far as i can tell has been looked after well, when it was on the road it ran perfect never giving me a problem and pulled very well, its been sat on my drive for a few months(mid way through a project) and it hadnt been started, it started perfect and ran perfect from the getgo so its a good engine, its still in the car and running so all the parts are there and can be inspected, test drive is fine but its highly illegal as it is.
