    If you have TC you won't have an LSD.

    The M50 inlet manifold, specifically from a 325 not 323 or anything else, is the most horsepower you can get for the money as, if found in a scrap yard, it could be nearly 25 horses for 25 quid. Remember to budget extra for an insurance premium increase.


    Very nice car in my favourite colour

    Beautiful car in a beautiful colour!

    I'll take a dive and ask, how much did you pay for her?

    Beauty mate nice buy !
    Things to look out for are :
    rust anywhere
    front control arm bushes
    front lower ball joints
    rear brake pipe corrosion ( changed more than i care to remember !)
    coolant leaks ( these are common on all bmws really upto e90 models with later engines )
    Rear trailing arm bushes
    Rear coil springs like to snap specially with the age of the car and the power as she will squat when u floor it
    Worse thing to be wary of is rear subframe ripping out the floor pan more common on m3s and e46 but be wary ! Any cracks or signs shift this on ! Very expensive repair !
    I don't intend to scare u with the above I just know these cars very well as I have worked at a BMW specialist for the last 4 years !

    I'm sure many of the above will be non applicable but just give it a going over when the weather pics up ;-)
