Car is a 316i with a 1.9 engine. 2000 reg, 78,000 on the clock.
So heres what it looks like now
Fitted the CCFL rings and HID's (6000K) & led sidelight bulbs, chrome indicator bulbs the day i got it.
Once i managed to get it up on a ramp i could see what i had to put my money towards. It needs a new exhaust system from cat back, drivers side wishbone and the rear bush. Apart from that, its all pretty mint with hardly any rust, so i was quite surprised considering its 13 years old.
Hunting about online and asking questions on here led me on the hunt for a performance backbox, i managed to stumble across one on ebay from a BMW breakers (njpbmwsalvage)
I also needed the front support aswell so that was ordered once i tracked down the part numbers on realoem.
Wishbone ordered and powerflex bushes aswell so they will be getting fitted when the wishbone arrives. Im starting to look forward to working on it as this is the first time ive owned a BMW (dedicated vauxhall fan)
Next on the list is:
Poly bushes all round
Coilovers - seen a few, but not sure what to get (budget range if poss)
Wheels - Wanted some style 44's but im thinking i want something with a lip
Possible engine swap - if im brave enough to do it myself
I will update this as i go along. Thanks for reading
