Choices, and More choices
Ok to explain my story
I own a 318i 95, e36 Manual "Converted from auto =)"
"m3 Kit, Billstein Suspension, lowered, re-upholstered completly in leather"
But its boring...
It looks hot "Bimmers done up are not very common in Australia"
But its sooo slow
I have even put a 4.1 Dif in it, which makes it boot Sh*t Loads faster than a normal 318i but its SLOW!
A) Conversion to m3 Engine
Ive had a manual to auto conversion so i have an idea of what i am in for
B) Sell it and buy
Now before jumping to conclusions, "Everyone would be thinking go the m3"
BMW prices in australia are extravagent
318i => Approx $12,500
320 => Approx $15,000
325i => Approx $20,000
328i => approx $25,000
m3 => $40,000 +
So now you may understand my problem.
To upgrade a complete car to a m3 = $27,500
And an engine Swap Approx $10,000
Leaving me with a nice $ 17,500 in my back pocket....
What i am asking here is for opinions, i have recently moved job to a much higher wage so money isnt the biggest issue at the moment.
Would i be better off to buy a 328i and spend money on the engine....
or the 325i??
If you were me, what would you do??
