at the moment its a 2002 325ti ..... how much will it set me back to do the conversion and in your opinion is it worth doing?
Hmmm i feared that....
imagine it though.... small light chassis.... 333 bhp
maybe a supercharger
i could possibly be getting a touch carried away here, getting rather excited!
well ive already got a set of koni coilovers on the way for it..... thinking anti roll bars and poly bushes all round.... front strut brace, and probably rear strut brace. how much could i pick up an LSD for?Yep, I agree with A20RYM. I also admire your style! Would also need loads of suspension mods and an LSD.
A charger might be the way forward. http://autospeed.com/cms/A_2850/article.html
Remember to check out the meets section as we could do with a few people like you for any SW meets!
If the engine/charger is going to really mount up, cost-wise, why not just chop in the Compact and buy an M3? It's a much better looking car. Or is it the 'wolf in sheep's clothing' effect you're after?
nice one mate! will bare that in mind!hi man i was looking into doing the same conversion to a 323 coupe. a company i am in touch with will do everything you need for £1700. you also need to supply them with an engine and most of the bits.
if you need the email address of the company i will forward it to you no problem.
Good god, another one! I actually don't want to know the figure for your insurance. 300 bhp at 18? I CERTAINLY understand the appeal, but I would also question the wisdom. That is a bollock load of ponies! I'd have done it given the chance, but that don't make it smart either!only thing thats holding me back and not jumping on ebay and gettin myself an M3 lump right now, or charging it is the god awfull fact that i am only 18..... and my insurance is, well frankly astronomical already as you can imagine.... hmmmm what a dream though!
