    Hi guys. I pickup up this 1999 318 a few months ago. The interior is a bit rough, and it needed a new exhaust and a few other little bits. Apologies for the poor pics i'm posting on the phone ?

    Hi Guys, I am a university student doing a project on high voltage electric vehicle powertrains, and having seen the rise in interest in recent years of converting cars to electric power, I have some questions for the BF community! I am researching the potential of a high power, modular...
  8. Introductions
    We've had an E36 since I was a wee lad. My dad bought this '97 E36 318i as new a week after I was born. Ever since, it's been in our driveway. I spent most of my childhood in the back seats of this so I'm quite attached to it. However, due to a variety of reasons, it's been sitting untouched in...

    Hi All, I'll try to post this a few places, I have written an API tool that allows me to extract the VIN from the UKDVLA database. You just pop in the reg and I can interrogate the database to pull pretty much anything, from tyres to history and even value at auction. The recent GDPR Data...

    Hi all, new member here! I'm Reeve, I'm 16 , from Liverpool and have just made my third BMW purchase, a 2004 BMW 316i SE (previous cars are a very broken E36 318ti and a now scrapped 316i Compact parts car). She's had a hard life, 174000 miles to date (a lot on that less than stellar N42...

The car is...

    Hi Everyone, I have decided (possibly a major mistake!) to try and restore my 1998 840Ci back to its' former glory. This is aimed directly at Timm, absolute top website and info mate, you are a real star, you mention getting round to attacking the rust issues on your 8, I hope it doesn't turn...

    Starting with lowering the car. Rear suspension was leaking and the top mounts were shot. Decided to take a gamble on a set of JOM coilovers and replace both front and rear suspension and top mounts all round. Ride quality is much improved compared to leaky old shockers but I get the feeling...

    I had my E36 Evo SMG in storage for 6 years before I could finally afford to get it fixed up and back on the road. It was in need of new four new discs, four new tyres and a lot of other work, 3 grand in total, all on a car that had less than 60k miles on it. After all that was sorted, I...
