    Hey guys and girls,

    my names Jim, 23 living in Northfleet, Gravesend in kent.

    im new to the world of bmws as ownership goes, i did own a 318is coupe a few years ago, non runner with the intention of slapping a 328 engine under the bonnet, but after a little scrote smashed the rear window and then set a small fire to the back of the car, it was scrapped and forgotten about.

    however, ive been toying with the idea of another car to play with after selling my 160bhp lotus engined Metro, which to say the least, was Very quick. i would love another of these, but there are only 34 gti's still on the road , so to find a good one is getting ever increasingly difficult,

    then, a good friend of mine lent me his e36 coupe, a 328i with a few choice modifications to the engine, and a dyno print out of over 250 bhp.

    grinning until my face hurt i have decided this is what i want to go with, so i have been searching the country for a decent e36 328, and have recently just comeback from viewing one today, 160k but was mInt, and i mean MINT! only problem, Nikasil block, Boo

    so unfortunately i have come back empty handed yet again. :(

    i look forward to posting on here, and getting to know you

    all the best

    Jim
