    Hi all.

    Im due to be picking up my new 1998 328i Sport M-Tech on monday, cant wait!

    Looking forward to learning alot about the cars and meeting/speaking to other coupe owners.

    Theres a few things I want to put back to standard on the car like the grills (has darker ones now) and I want to remove the medium shade window tints it has too.

    Ill put some pics up when shes had a top to bottom wash, polish and wax.

    Cheers

    Hi Dave,welcome to Bimmerforums UK............
    You may also want to look at getting an M50 manifold to free up the horses you have waiting under the bonnet.........

    Thats an inlet manifold-the 328 has a restricted manifold due to german insurance laws so by putting on a new manifold it will free up at least an extra 20hp-One of the members here does a fabricated M50 mainfold to fit the 328 with no airleaks-worthwhile investment...........
    Alpina527 is his name FYI

    Great thanks Im just doing abit of searching on the forum to get the general idea of popular/proven mods.

    However my priorities are to get a few bits back to standard first and then maybe think about more power : Its already got a cone filter on it so thats a start lol.

    Well I got the car home today. Heres a couple of pics after a quick wash.

    Just need some OEM badges, grills, 328i badge and maybe lose the tints.
