welcome to forum mate
Hi lads, cheers for the welcome.
Great looking car Stu. Thinking about putting a set of amber front lenses back in mine. It's Calypso Red though so think it may suit the clears better.
Just picked up a set of Sunflowers for mine from the couriers tonight. Got them delivered to my parents as they're retired and always in but, they buggered off in their caravan didn't they! Haha.
Anyway, they look good. Needs the front dropping before I fit them though.
Bye for now.

Get some piccys up of the car!
Welcome mate get pics of your carS up I'm a Stockton/Middlesbrough lad!
Welcome to BFUK Marky, good to see another E36 on here!
I have lots of plans for mine (below, only just bought)! Can't wait to see what you're doing.
Stu - Will try and get some pics tomorrow. Just looks like a plain Jane coupe at the minute and it's filthy. I haven't started using it until I get rid of my old Volvo towcar/daily hack. The 318 is to replace that as it came with the factory fitted removable towbar, which I think was a lucky find.
Niall - Hi mate, thanks for the welcome. There seems to be a few North East lads on here. As above, I'll get some pics up soon hopefully. I need to take some "before" shots anyway, before I start getting it how I want, so some will get posted soon.
Hi Dr Tazzle - yep I'm an E36 addict. I'm sort of regretting buying the 4 pot already though and I haven't even used it yet. I had to move it today to wash my Volvo to photograph it for autotrader and I'd forgotten the BM wasn't a six pot until I started it up. : If I change it though I can whip the Sunflowers off and things like that. The car is great though. As mentioned it has the towbar and also Ipod connection via a later model BMW headunit. Every single thing works too! I couldn't not buy it really, considering some of the dogs out there.
That looks like a nice clean Touring. So bloody useful too aren't they. I was keeping my eyes peeled for coupes and tourings but the coupe came up first. My mate had the 323 coupe a while back. They sound so nice don't they. Oh no, I think I'm developing cylinder envy!
John - That looks bloody impressive! You're looking out of the passenger window in that second pic! I've never really got the drift thing but appreciate the skill involved.
The old advert is still on P'heads. This is it.
Thankfully it looks a darker red than in these pics.
First things to do-
Lower front slightly.
New number plates.
Centre rear diffuser section. It's missing and is different due to the detachable towbar access.
M3 front lower lip for bumper.
Rear arches have just started to go. Minimal though, so I'll catch it early.
Fit Sunflowers. May leave this til after winter now. Infact if my Volvo doesn't sell, I'm going to run it over the bad weather (it's got heated seats and I don't have to wash it from November til March ) then scrap it. So the 318 will just be garaged til then.
Anyway, I'll post some of my own pics soon. Cheers.
