My $750 93 318IS!

I got it for $750, it came with m3 springs, contours, winter's on steel rims, 245km! It's leather 5 speed! Needed a ball joint, and Ebrake cable for safety.

So far:
Put Xenon lights, rear wheel bearings, stereo, upgraded speakers, complete tune up (sparks, filters, oils) ICV Clean, fan delete, CAI, replaced a bunch of sensors (cam, crank, IAT), replaced some vacuum hoses, flushed the coolant.
I took the shifter rod and made it heavier, and fixed all kinds of electrical issues (dashboard lights, temp. control lights, DRL delete, sunroof, etc)


It rides really really good, like no bumps, vibrations, pulling, or anything like that. No leaks and it's clean and very dry underneath. It has a whining noise coming from the engine on idle but I think it's either the alt. bearing, or belts, it needs front wheel bearings, minor body work (very old paint), and eventually a clutch (not slipping or anything, but I feel it LOL)

Anyway, I know there's all kinds of crazy e36's out there, but so far this car cost me around $2000, it's a lot better than my previous beater, and looks hell of a lot sexier than a civic, accord, or any other car that I see every day. I am in London, and there isn't that many e36's around here.

I did and plan to do everything I can on it myself, and I am super happy with it as it's in good shape as it is, has no rust and I get about 660-700 a tank combined.

Thought I share with you guys, tell me what you think!

Cheers....
