E36 sedan buildup

So with the nice weather i couldnt resist starting another project! The base is a 97 318i 5spd, all original, some surface rust but very solid shell, no accidents or repaint. Black on black cloth (soon to be OUT!), with tint (still debating to keep or take off). It has a bad engine, so this is the 1st issue to be solved ASAP. After that, the moding starts, already collected a few things for it...

Engine; stock M42/M44 not sure yet
Body; some sort of kit...final look TBA
Suspention; coil overs for now
Rims; 18x8.5
Paint; like no other!
Brakes; fully rebuild, with Brembo rotors, later to be replaced by M3 ones

This will be a budget build, with no more then 2-3K spent on it, and i want it done in about 4 weeks! (part time, weekends mostly). Will post pics as the transformation takes place...

Swap was just done!!! ITs alive! lol It was a first of its kind, since most people upgrade, not downgrade like me...from 1.9 to 1.8...but it worked out great, engine started right up. Will be fully done next week, after that it back at Eurostyle for the bodywork/paint and rest of mods (suspention, rims, system etc)...Will have picst of the work as it goes along...Final results and paint colour will be only seen once its fully done! Most likely at the Bimmesport BBQ...
