Just a quick introduction as I've been reading the forums a lot but never posted. I recently purchased a 96 E36 318 IS Coupe from a friend. It's been made to look like M3 and is my new project.
It was an absolute bargain at 1k despite it's relatively high mileage 170k . I was wary at first buying a car with such high mileage but couldn't pass up on the chance to own this car. Even if the engine died on me tomorrow I could make that money back by selling the wheels, m3 alacanta interior and various other parts. All though I would be more likely to get a new engine
I've been down the local scrap yard every weekend ever since I got the thing and slowly but surely tidying the thing up. I may do a project thread at some point perhaps?
