engine bays are the best pics, it pretty much sums up how big your e30's balls are... anyone can buy a stock bmw.

169 at the crank, the dyno was measuring rwhp. mark, was that with a stock motor?

IIRC, stock crank HP is 166, the TMS chip gives an additional 10HP. Kish, my engine is stock except for a Turner chip. She's losing 17% through the driveline.

Hello all!!!

Here are some pics of my first BMW. Picked it up for a song and a dance, and then found out its a pretty rare model, and next to the M3 one of the best of the E30's.

my first BMW

Hi everyone, Just about finished getting this car on the road, So far I have replaced the front fenders, complete rear brakes, e-brake cable, drive shaft carrier barring, all metal brake and fuel lines, gas tank, one ball joint and patched 2 small holes at the back under the car. Also had to replace the shifter, it was so badly worn that the centre counsle had to be moved when shifting into reverse!!

I bought the car for next to nothing, then I found out that the 318is, is a rare model in north america. it goes like hell and the handling is unbeleivable!! This summer will see a paint job and the seats will be refinished.

Richie

I down sized the photo's hopefully they load
