    Hi Guys,

    Loved BM's for a long time, my brother has owned alot of them (mainly E30's) and that how i got introduced to them, now i've bought my first, an E36 318is 1.9 twin cam, this is going to be my daily driver and long term project although i am short of cash because of christmas and £1100 insurance my shopping list is extensive although i could use some advice about forced induction.

    Only mods so far are angel eyes, but i've got a M3 Evo splitter being delivered in a couple of days and some genuine M3 mirrors that need spraying, might go black with them yet, let me no what you think

    Plans include:
    Body shop work booked in monday (couple of minor rust spots and scrapes from previous owner)
    M3 Mesh
    "skinny" grill from pre-facelift model + blacked out
    Alloys (18" DTM split spoke black centre)
    HIDs
    Simota Carbon Air Intake
    I would like a supercharger but turbo is a much cheaper option (advice needed)
    Remap
    Limited Slip Diff
    Big Brake Kit (from E46 330i)
    New springs\coilovers and dampers to get a small drop (roads near me are rubbish)
    Full polyuretane bush replacement
    Maybe colour code the whole car, but not decided on that yet
    Front, rear and subframe brace
    Engine Rebuild
    LTW carbon spoiler (maybe)

    Heres the pics that the last owner took




    Let me know what you guys think and suggestions welcome!

    Thanks

    P.S i going to photoshop some ideas when i get chance

    Hiya TT2K, and welcome to BFUK!

    Nice motor you got there, and your intended upgrades sound cool

    Look forward to seeing it progress with pics

    Have fun in the forum mate

    thanks for all the positive comments guys, DragonLogicX could you tell me how big your alloys are mate? i'm guessing they are 19's? i plan on buying 18's and dropping just a little. Cheers
