    hey up guys

    new to the forum, new to BMWs, and new to RWD, to top this im considering a diesel of which ive never owned one so im new to that as well.

    in summary im just a new boy so be gentle with me.

    My last 3 previous cars have all been Fwd hot hatches, all of which i have been quite heavily modified to be used on track whilst still using them as my daily driver.

    Im currently driving a MK2 Octavia vRS 2.0Tfsi. mods:Engine-3" turbo back exhaust system, ITG induction kit, Autotech High pressure fuel pump, Shark performance stage 3 remap Chassis-AP Coilovers, eibach Anti roll bars, whiteline anti lift kit, Hawk HP+ pads, braided brake lines. 287Hp/300Ibft

    Shes pretty potent, but as it is my daily driver it has to be a compromise of both track and fmily work.

    So im selling up and ill be replacing her with a sensible boring family estate, and she is happy for me to build a track toy fo myself

    im considering an E36 325TDS as the base motor to start with for some reason.
    heres some pics of my current wheels




    Octavia vRS-soon to be for sale to be replaced by some ligtweight RWD Bimmer action

    alrighty
    i made the same move as yourself, i went from a corrado to a 318iS
    there was some regret at the start especially when i finally sold the corrado but i came around and to be honest i cant see myself driving anything else now
    ive had mine about a year and a half and even with the hassle and money spent i dont want to get rid of it
    anyway you cant beat that rwd action

    oh and welcome to the forum
