maverick9614 is an unknown quantity at this point
This is a noob talking, first post actually. I'm looking to buy a car from a fellow and had some questions for some experts. It's an '84 318i and the guy says it needs a new clutch and starter. Are these cars front, or rear wheel drive, and how hard is it to replace these pieces? Also, are those carb or EFI?

are you kidding? these things are NOT front wheel drive thank God! and the 318i well the i stands for injected so unless hes changed the badging its an injected car. also the starter is fairley easy to change you can see it in the engine compartment. also you can get the starter rebuilt for cheaper then a new one. and the clutch you would need to drop the tranny, and for that you need 4 jack stands and jack the car up and then take off the drive shaft undo all the torques bolts (make sure you have a jack under the tranny) and hten lower it with the jack and pull it out, take off the clutch and go buy yourself a nice new one.
