    Hello there, new to all this so bare with me.

    Just bought a 1994 318is on coilovers. Well i say bought i swapped it for a 1.4 P reg Honda Civic which was the worst car i have ever drove. Cant beleive how lucky i was when i found someone on pistonheads that wanted to swap his 318is for my rubbish civic. So straight away i agreed a time and place where to meet and on the Sunday was off toward Northampton to meet the bloke. When i got there i instantly fell inlove with the car, the best way to describe it is it looks like a touring car for the road. Love it!!! he took me for a drive in it and it was nice a bouncy over the bumps in the road which i loved even more. Then showed him the civic and he didnt even go for a test drive. The next thing i remember is the logbooks being filled in and i was on my way in my new 318is on coilovers HAHA

    So driving back from Northampton to Birmingham stopped on the services to have a proper look:-

    Genuine M3 Motorsport Alloys
    Genuine M3 Leather Interior
    M-tech II Steering Wheel
    Lowered On Coilovers
    Quickshift
    Remus Exhaust (is abit big but i like it makes a nice noise)

    then had a look in the little folder that he gave me with the car

    Every MOT Since its needed one
    Every Tax Disc Since New
    Receipt From New
    Loads & Loads of Recieipts

    All in all absolute bargain for a £400 civic from the auction.

    This is my 3rd e36 ive had a 316i saloon and a 323i coupe which was abit mad more to come on them soon but this one is by far the best one of them all, i love it loads.

    let me know what you think please as i say im new to all this








    The angel eyes have been trown as far as i could get them and standard headlights have been put back in and orange indicators and black grills have been put in.



    thanks for looking more pictures to follow

    As you said, the exhaust is a bit big and not really to my taste, but car looks great for that money and with all that history...

    Welcome to the forum mate,

    Vaders and the alloys alone are worth more than the swapped car, bargain!
