hi guys (and girls?)
firstly i'm going to offend you all by telling you the car i actually drive is my beloved peugeot 306 1.4 which i've owned for nearly 5 years now and despite the countless problems and serious lack of power, it's my baby and i will run it into the ground since i havent the heart to sell it. almost everything i know about cars i have learned from working on this.
secondly i'm going to brag about the fact i have a degree in automotive engineering, although to be honest as previously mentioned i've learned more from working on my own car and a select few mates' cars than anyone can teach you in a classroom.
thirdly, and most importantly, i've recently become the owner of a 1998 E36 318i SE which is to be used as a donor car for a kitcar i am building. i will be using the engine, gearbox, drivetrain, braking system and wiring loom from the car. i plan to strip everything down, give it a good clean and replace any worn parts before installing it, and so have signed up to this forum so that i can whinge to you lot when stuff goes wrong and hopefully someone will have abit of advice to help me out..
cheers and look forward to posting again soon
