    Hello, I'm an expat living in Holland and soon to be owner (next Thursday) of a 1997 BMW 318ti Compact. Looking to put my own stamp on the car. This is going to be a real challenge as my mechanical knowledge is fairly basic, but I look forward to learning and doing as much as I can myself.

    Cheers!

    This is my new car - 318ti Comfort edition. Nice clean original car I think.
    So this is my starting point.

    Welcome to the forum, I've only been on here a short while and the support is great.

    Nice clean looking motor, Im not mechanically minded either but I can follow instructions (sort of!). These cars a like Lego, you can swap bits from the larger engine'd models pretty easy (Brakes,suspension, engines etc)... And you can put the interior back in one piece ! I rebuilt an '88 Escort RS turbo a few years back and soooooo many things broke on removal / refitting.

    These cars are built to last !
