Hey reechard here
I have a e36 compact. 316 with the 1.9 m44 lump. Was purchased as a cheap run about while i fixed my mx5s and started on the joint project of a toyota celica with some mates.
Its turned into a bit of fun too though and slowly making it my own.
Hope to get to some meets and get into bmws a bit more, last experience was my dads old cars, namely a 7series that drifts!
