    Hey Everyone!
    im Mikey and im 19
    i live in Gillingham, Dorset, Southwest England!
    ive got an E36 318iS (its my first car)

    shes got a full Mtech kit, Resprayed Baby Blue.. Alpina Wheels resprayed black!
    soon to have a carbon fibre roof skin and fully adjustable coilovers with front and rear strut braces, and full powerflex polly bush kit! Also Ordering some 16x10'' Banded steelies.. thinking of spraying them Black or pink..

    im looking to get more power out of my car, so any suggestions would be great! i currently have a straight through exhaust system (decat) but im looking to get Cams, Stainless Manifold, and bigger throttle body, then a remap to keep me going until i can afford an engine change..

    im looking to get a 3litre from a 5series (231bhp) then buy a turbo kit!! but that wont be for some time yet..

    so let me know what ya think guys

    Mikey

    Welcome. Yeah, post some pics! Engine wise, it's a difficult engine to get anymore power from. Yours is a '92 so you could try a chip, sealed induction kit or normal kit with a heatshield. I wouldn't go chucking £££ at the engine though..

    Banded steels? Me likey, hurry up and do it!

    Edit: You're gonna have some serious arch work with ten inch rims!

    welcome to the forum pics please
    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.

    Thanks everyone, il get some pics up as soon as i figure out how!!!

    and Disco Stu, as far as i know i wont need that much!!! i know someone who has 16x10'' Borbet A alloy's and he said there wasnt any major issue.. only standard stuff like ripping the arch lining out and rolling the arch's a bit.. but in general it should be okay!! i miiight go for something a little less extreme than 10''.. buuut il see what happens closer to the time.. maybe look at some more E36's with 10'' wide wheels..

    Thanks again, Mikey
