Just bought a '52 318Ci yesterday which I'm very happy with! Had to drive from Southampton to Leeds back to London to get it but the drive home went very quickly! It's only my second car and I'm coming from an older punto so it's a fair jump
It has the new M3 19" alloys which are very nice (although I'm tempted to sell them and drop down to the 18" MV2 ones) and its had a remap, new exhaust and K&N filter so I think its probably on about 160bhp maybe a tad more. Heard a bit of squeaking from the left brakes today and the exhaust is a bit too noisy for my liking which I may have to sought out, but apart from that it's great!
