    Hi Guys,

    My name is Jack, i am 23 and from the peterborough area. I recently purached my 318is from a work colleague (force of sale due to promotion over in Dubai)

    Previous car was a little toy - 2001 MK5 Fiesta Zetec S with a 1.7 Puma engine (Alot of fun but im not 17 any more)

    Here is the car and a few details

    £400
    89k on clocks (genuine with proof)
    Mtech styling
    K and N Filter

    Ok so i need some help!!

    Maybe the wrong thread and i am sorry if it is:

    On the passengers side it is missing a little bit of side trimming (m-tech) on the front wing...Where can i find that and how much?

    Also i bet this is heard so often but oh well lol. What are the realist modifications that can be done to improve performance?

    Also anyweb sites where i can look through E36 spare/aftermarket/oem parts, exhausts trim ect would be great!!!

    Cheeersss - J

    Thanks mate im quite happy with it to be honest! Bit more...juicy than the fez but i can deal with it lol.

    Yeah i didnt think there was alot of engine mods that can be done, how about a performance chip/remapping? have noticed there is a flat spot in second could that eliminate that?

    Im thinking im going to go down the root or maintaining it rather than engine conversion at the moment, wouldnt mind some vader seats in there it has a little bit of rust on the arches that could do with some attention as well!

    nice looking car mate, my freind had a 318is and it was nippy, check eBay and breakers yards for your missing trim, should be able to get one cheap enough! :-)

    Welcome dude Looks very good man.

    For performance mods, probably simple things like Air Induction (Make sure it cold), Exhaust, maybe a chip and a service. Not a lot can be done to 4 cylinder BMW engines lol.
    As for places buy stuff, eBay is your friend and people sell things on here and there are also scrap yards where you can salvage stuff

    Driven by experience and pleasure
