    Welcome. Sounds like a great plan, and one I can associate with! So far I have had a 1999 318is, a 1998 328 sport and a 1996 M3 Evo.

    All were great in their own way, and each taught me something! (My favorite was probably the 328)

    The 318is is a great car, it's good on fuel, you can really throw them around, and they teach you how to get the best out of a smaller peaky engine. However, if you can stretch to the 328 - go for it!

    Cheers for that, I was toying for the idea of the E36 325i, there is a guy selling for cheap near where I live. But I like the idea of small pokey engine and when trubo'd will give the odd fool the shocking view of exhaust fumes as I leave him by the lights. Hmmm....whats it worth...318is stabbed with a turbo or a 325i....??

    325 Mate and then you can turbo that...Nothing like the sound of a straight 6 over the 4 pot

    Depends, out of the box the 325 will be quite pokey. A turbo'd 318is would be a laugh!
