Hey I'm new here, got my ride yesterday. I live in Broome/Perth in Western Australia. I can't wait till my ride arrives to me house

Yep, my dad paid for it yesterday. Its a 318iS 2 door alpina white in colour, CD stacker, sun-roof, all the power options. Its not bad for a 16 year old hehe. Its getting a full M power body kit, M power gearstick, M power foot pedals and M power badging on it and then after that I'm going to put twin big exhausts and some 17/18 inch chrome rims. Should be a change from everyomnme else over here in Australia...

looks pretty nice, i do have one thing to say however, don't put m power badges all over it, it isn't an m. also don't forget the clear corners, sidemarkers and taillights on your list of mods, it will make it look alot better

Nice ride! My boss was just reminiscing the other day about his old 318 coupe that he had in the UK.

Man - 16 huh? I didn't even have a bicycle when I was 16... went to school in a wheelbarrow... and that was a step up from the handtruck, course it was 10 miles and uphill both ways.

I'll second the vote AGAINST putting M badges all over it. That's a classic ricer move and this should be a classy car, not a Fast and the Furious wanna be.

Nothing wrong with doing mod's but I have always wondered why people put badges on their cars that belong to another model. It's like putting a Porsche badge on a ford...just not right. I wouldn't even put an M badge shift knob in mine (or pedals) as it's not an M. Stick to MoMo or AC or some other after market label and you'll be fine.

Good luck with it, it's a nice car!

yeah, putting M badges on a non-M car is lame. especially a 4 banger automatic 318...thats just not right. the body kit would be nice, but don't lie about whats under the hood with some false badging.

yup , I thought about putting an Alpina chrome badge on mine, E36 323i, M body styling, with AC Schnitzer 17"'s in samoa blue, now I easily see differences between mine and Alpina, so not gonna bother.
I believe 318is is M styling anyway and suspension

but nice styling is definite good work ....reminds me must get those clear front n side blinkers ;P

ref yer spec ; courtsey of some russian website ;

BMW 318is available in coupe and saloon
Engine Size 1796 cc, in-line
Cylinders 4
Valves 16
Max power output 140hp/6000rpm
Max torque 129ib ft/4200rpm
Top speed 213km/h (207 for automatic transmission)
0-100km/h 10.2s (11.6 for automatic transmission)
