    Good to see you about Gordon. Thought you were going to recommend a LPG conversion so you can thrash it around everywhere. Slightly OT but what are you paying these days per litre?

    My mates got a 318is coupe 98', cracking car and nearly see's off my 2006 equivelant, he had a viper II chip put in, lowered, twin exaust (tastefully done) and a custom built induction kit, it's a nippy motor and purr's like a tiger, so I'd recommend what he's done as we both noticed a difference in performance.

    Next steps though, big bore throttle body I've heard is helpful and considering it's mileage, maybe get the head ported n polished to liven it up a bit, although can be a costly option!

    Best of luck mate, once you've had a beemer you'll never look back... god couldn't have created a better car!

    No point in the bbtb, looks nice but no noticeable difference.

    class beema, i'd love it but would be afraid to leave it anywhere, so would probably end up sleepin in it.
