    Hi all
    So after years of being a jap nut, the other week I had a play in my mates 328 e36 and fell in love instantly and just yesterday swapped my corsa B for a white 316i saloon 92 reg (pics in my profile). It needs a small amount of tidying up cosmetically and suffers from the all too common tappet noise but has not lost any power or anything, just an annoying tap! But apart from that I love it and it will be a nice small project for a while and i think of it as in investment. it came with just over 100k on the clock (not bad at all for the age I think) 5 months tax etc etc so not bad really. I've already got some plans laid out after she's tidied up so I'll have to start a progress thread soon First on the list is to sort this tapping but depending on cost may just get a newer/bigger lump put in it. Thoughts guys?

    Thanks
