Default My project E36!

Hello all! Well, after some tedious search, ive finally managed to lay my hands on a 94 E36. Its a 316 with an automatic transmission and comes stock with 100 bhp. The reason i chose this car was because as advised by Arush (Autopsyche), the car has tremendous modification possibility, both performance and looks wise! I also bought the car because i needed something, which after some serious mods could provide more power than my Evilution! I know its a lot of work, paintjob and body work wise, but im sure you all can see the diamond in the rough! Cheers!

first few things i would suggest other than a paint job ... clear lenses , a good set of alloys and a nice CAI and exhaust( a remus or DINAN- if you can get your hands on one...) remove the rear badging and a nice m3(e46) spoiler
Just noticed this car is rebadged as a 325 does the car have the in car computer in the center console, can you post some pics of the interior

Here you go guys, some interior pics! Personally hate the wood trim on it, so that will definitely go, n not too much a fan of the red on the seats!

Abix...Bad move going in for the 316 if you want an engine swap...Anyway if it's a turbo stock internals take upto 8-10 psi at min

The engine though is still DOHC, efficient and pretty decent for the car. You're right about the potential this car has...what did it cost?
