Seem to have a few project threads on here now
All have a different purpose
This one is going to be my daily for nipping to the unit, basically my mode of transport to get to airport for going offshore
So going to be doing round trips from fife to Aberdeen a few times a month.
I flew down to Cardiff last trip home. A nice 1hr 35 min flight from Edinburgh airport to be met in the pissing rain by Rob who was sitting waiting on me.
Nice welsh chap and a gent for meeting me to save on finding my way on public transport.
Anyway picked up taken into Cardiff got a good look around the inside of the car, some very fresh looking black leather and everything worked happy days.
Once parked up at Cardiff train station we went round the car and Rob showed me the little niggles and to be fair there were very little to be pointed out car was very straight and original. pulled back a few rubbers to show no signs of paint.. which is rare for a car of its age. Very little fading. front bumper i may address later will see how it polishes up.
few little scuffs and i mean small so nice and original.... done the deal and i was off on my 8 hour drive back north
Having never driven the 318ti and in all honesty expected it to be slow! But alot punchier than i could have imagined
A happy camper i was..................
My only critisism of the car was the exhaust sitting at 70 "cough" 80 most of the way home it droned didnt bother me for first hour or so but by the time i got home it had left a lasting effect (this will now get changed sooner than later)
Oh and only £80 of fuel from Cardiff to north of Edinburgh Winner!!!!!
Anyway here she is "delila"

Next day at HQ with Kyles performance BMW featured Dakar M3 Saloon where i couldnt reist a wee quick wash
Plans for it
Fit an audio upgrade will concentrate on upgrading the kickpanel speakers then see what my options are oh and also fit my Alpine head unit from my old e36 m3 that i kept.
A good touch up and machine polish to see what i'm left with
Fit a set of BC coilovers will be the RM range
I also have a set of 17 inch Dare BBS RS reps sitting to go on 8.5j and 10j i'm going to ditch the 10j and get another pair of 8j's for the rear and run a small spacer to try give the staggered effect.
M3 genuine mirrors painted and get them fitted(already have them and the base plates)
BMW Motorsport number plate plinth (already have that)
Rear wiper delete
and we will see where it goes from there
