    thanks mate. Iv just bought the car last week for 500 quid from a mate of mine, about 3 years ago the cylinder head went on it and it has been parked ever since. Iv had 2 bm's so far but both 6 cylinders so i dnt know much about the 318's.

    Is it worth keeping the engine or doing a transplant of a 2.5? Iv never done it before so i dont know whether if its too much hassle or a straight forward job. Cheers mate

    theres plenty of info to be had on engine swaps in the forum but in my opinion id just find a nice unspoilt 325i, theyre pretty cheap now. my brothers goes like sh#t off a shovel - but then you'd know that having had a couple of 6 cylinders already
