    Evening all, just a little message to introduce myself. My name is Chris and im 20 years old from Dundee in Scotland. Just bought my first BMW couple weeks ago and very eager to start making it my very very own. Had a wee bit experience modding but it was with micras and my Almera GTi. But since my wee boy was born i needed a more family car and opted for the 2001 e46 318i, not knowing what potential it really has. So basically I hope to be posting on here quite often with updates of my progress on the Beemer. And dont worry, im no longer a boy racer....im a man racer
    Cheers.

    Thanks for all the welcomes. My first move is to sort out my frickin brakes, there squeeling like nothing. Im thinkin new pads, maybe some new discs and new bushes. Not sure how expensive BMW parts are. Then after everythings healthy i'll move on to dropping a bigger engine in with a re-map hopefully. Might be a slow progress but a progress none the less.
    Oh and i definately need some nice dark grey rims on this beast haha

    Hi Chris I bought my first BMW in April and stay not far from Dundee I had a problem with an engine emissions light appearing on my 320d identified as Mass Air Flow Sensor and didn't want to have to spend a fortune at BMW. I found an independent BMW specialist(Motor Technology) in Brook Street in Dundee who was way cheaper than BMW. He confirmed with the diagnostics computer and replaced part this morning and cars now flying, the whole job including diagnostics came to way less than the part would have cost from BMW. I also discussed remapping which could add another 30bhp to the 150 already there.
