    There's one on eBay atm and it's been on there for about a month.

    It's been on the car since May last year and has ran very sweetly ever since. Feel free to ask any questions but I'm actually selling the car now. I'll still be available on the forums though as a change of badge won't see me leave the BMW forums.

    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and in need of assistance. Went through most of the forums regarding Downing Atlanta SuperChargers and most were really nice pics and stories, but none on how to's. Just recently picked up a used DASC for my 1997 318i Saloon, and I have no idea how to install. Apologize if I am beating a dead horse, but does anyone know where I can get an installation manual? Tried Downing Atlanta website but it has been a week since and no replies.

    Is your 318 a single cam or twin cam ?
    I mean what does the actually engine look like ? DASC doesn't fit certain M4x engines.

    If you don't know your engine type, send me a PM with the last 7 digits of your VIN & i'll find your engine via RealOEM.com


    But good on you for having that nice bit of kit! No doubt it will bring a lot of smiles per miles

    Thank you so much for the link. However I am still missing some parts. Missing parts are: support bracket, fuel regulator, bolts, and maybe some parts for the emission line. Still trying to get parts from Downing Atlanta.

    Good luck with that... Downing Atlanta don't make the parts anymore and I found their customer service to be awful. Speak with GKD (who also make a supercharger for the 318is) and see if they can help.
