    Hi I'm Ed, and I'm now on my second 318is coupe. First one did 170,000 miles before selling it, so I bought another low mileage one as it had done so well. Well I've buggered the motor already, its dropped a valve. Picked up an engine on ebay but... its an M44!!

    I am going to post a separate thread about trying to swap a M44 into the car, please see other thread. M42 to M44 this weekend, yeah right...

    More about me, I live in Hitchin but my parents, and therefore engine swap HQ is in Leicester! I love my BMW's, always have done, I also like 1970's two stroke bikes, and currently have two 1979 DT175 MX's.

    If any one could shed some light on the engine swap It would be greatly appreciated!

    Merry Christmas!

    Ed
