    " My other car is a BMW" thread

    I thought i should put a thread in the new section of the forum, just to get things going

    I have a 1991 BMW 318is, my daily, loving every min of it. In the last 2 years i have replaced a lot of things on it, just like you would on a 20yr old car. I love this little car, handling is awesome, dare i say better than my R32? maybe not, but its def better balanced and you can feel a massive difference in corners.

    Here is a pic:

    I've had a couple of 318is's. I love em. Would like a 325is. Just trying to find a good one isn't always easy. Great little cars.

    I have. A 2005 318i which goes really well for a 2l and the handling is very impressive

    Really enjoy driving the car

    I was very fortunate that, being a grey import, it was a genuine Motorsport. The Australian compliance ones were actually faked up by BMW Australia

    Balk, I remember when I had the car advertised, I got an offer for the wheels alone for $3k LOL

    I'm driving around in a small bumpered 318i. Love it to bits, but would REALLY love the M42 twin cam in it, just for that bit of extra pep

    mine has an m42 in it, nice engine but not enough torque on low revs and lifters dont last very long.
    If you are planning to change the engine go for an m50 from an e36. Fits straight in, lots of people have done it and there is a ton of info on the net

    Those are the best looking wheels IMO. Genuine RSs?

    yeah genuine RSs.

    The guy that bought it from me wanted to classic rally it - had contacted BMW Motosport UK and got all the original build spec confirmed
