    Hello all, i recently bought my 1st ever BMW and also my 1st RWD car.
    my names martin, im 21 and live in oldham, just outside manchester and i picked up a 1995 318IS last weekend. i absolutely love the car so far.
    full m-tech cream leather interior, m3 electric mirrors, m-tech bumpers, stainless cat back.

    it drives lovely. heres a few pics of the beast.







    Then i went to town with a grinder......
    result:





    Now i just have 1 problem with thes car. the heater blowers are not working, i have posted this in the electrical section already but feel free to answer on here

    Digital display : full working order
    fuses : checked
    FSU : replaced
    still nothing at all at any speed. Any idea folks??


    cheers

    Martin

    I'm only getting a glimpse, but I'm thinking lovely-looking interior.

    robbie is right, springs chopped on front, and i think they are 40mm lowering springs on the back.
    cheap lows until i can afford a nice set of coilovers.
    will get some better pictures soon once the weather cheers up a little.

    really? ive had chopped springs before a few times, this is my 5th car now and aslong as the springs are seated properly (this must be done anytime you jack the car up and lower it back down again) then it has no problem as the 1.5tonne of car ontop of it stops them moving around whilst driving.
    may i ask what happened in this accident?

    Pretty car bro.

    Wouldn't know anything about the blowers, except, mine went in my old Golf, in the winter, and driving it was HELL ON EARTH.

    Good luck pal, and get some proper springs please. Don't want your next post to be "I died cause my chopped springs!"

    may i ask what happened in this accident?
    The police report said his car went light over a crest of a hill on a country road causing the spring to move, when the car landed the spring became unseated sending the car into the oposite lane and had a headon at 63mph with another car doing 66mph. This resulted in 6 months in hospital for my mate with two broken legs 1 broken arm fractured skull, shattered cheek bone and head injurys and the driver of the other car spent 3 months in hospital with broken limbs and lost 2 fingers. Because my mate carried out the modification he was banned from driving for 4 years fined £4k and had to do 250hours community service.
