    Baz's Euro Style Coupé

    Hi all,

    Well well well. Most of you will know me from meets etc etc but after selling my 318is Coupé I went onto 2 wheels, now after much persuasion from the wife im now back on the BMW scene.

    A few pics of my old 318is Coupé for old times



    And now my Euro style Coupé:






    Its a 1996 BMW 316i Coupé with 77,000 genuine miles, 2 previous lady owners, came with TAX and MOT till next year. Solid car and a engine to suit.

    Has real carbon fibre bonnet (not wrapped), Borbet As deep dish alloys, K&N air filter (which ill change cos I HATE K&N!!! ), lowered 40mm on spax springs, rear tinted windows (professionally done, proven with receipts), Scorpion exhaust, glass angel eye headlights, xeon lights (8000K), clear indicators. Has all the wires installed for a boot build which will be on my list of things to do. Also came with a Clifford Concept 650 alarm and immobiliser

    There are a few things which I need to sort out, very minor ones like a peice of black trim (passenger side), passenger outer door handle surround, just niggly bits tbh.

    I intend to give it a good clay and polish before Saturday for more pictures at the Portsmouth meet (6th Oct) and will post better pictures then

    Baz

    Evening Prince,

    I had an 318is coupé before and that was fine for what I needed/wanted.....This came up and the fact that its only a 1.6 put me off a little but after driving it now, I dont really want anything more tbh...........Ive come big motorbikes so speed in a car is nothing to a bike lol
