    evening all.

    bmw owner since march last year, bought one over a focus (best choice ever)

    i got a 1998 316i compact (was only 20, when bought it, had to think about insurance) does the job for me for though!

    need to do some mods. going to get some pre-owned BM alloys over the next few days. also looking to lower it and put in some fog lamps. also thinking about an induction kit. but i will be doing a fair bit of motorway driving, so would it become too noisy?

    anyway, here's a pic of the car as it is -

    nice motor mate, slap a set of 18"s on there and drop it lightly and it'll look spot on!

    foglights should be cheap enough aswell, try quarrymotors.co.uk and bmminiparts.co.uk, or just email some breakers through ebay! im guessing you've already got the wires in place but just caps over where the fogs should be??

    well just bought some 16" wheels from a scrap yard. £100 with tyres. will do for the time being! picking them up later on today or tomorrow.

    a quick question, looking to upgrade the bulbs in my headlights. what should i be looking for? a quick look on ebay (just searched bmw e36 compact) and HB4 seems to come up. what do i want to be looking for?
