    Hello, Im James and this is my E36 318is Coupe as it is now.




    When i bought it back early last year it it looked like this


    it cost me £1200 with 117000miles on the 1.8 16v engine
    HID Xenon headlights with angel aye and indicators
    m3 rear lights
    18'' wolfrace alloys
    M3 bumpers, skirts and spoiler

    it was going well for about 5 months until the day i booked it in to get a custom exhaust, just down the street from my house on my way to get it fitted the engine cut out, i later found that it a valve head had broke off in cyl 3 and made hell of a mess, so i went on the hunt for a engine and as i was only young i got a 2.0 6 cyl just so i could have a 6 cyl sound

    this is the engine fitted


    Was told it was a 1997 engine but later found out it was a 1994!
    so has no T/C

    After the engine was fitted by myself i got a S/Steel manifold and downpipe and the car was good for a while more until just before Christmas i slid into a post in the ice, caving in the door and side

    so i got on and got a new door and started repairing it



    it has taking me about 3 months to get it sorted but while it was off the road i desided to get new wheels because i hated old ones so i bought some new ones

    Also i got a set of Coilovers for the new wheels.
