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

haha *orgasms* hehe. Are you in america or something? Is that why you like the RHD?? Also could you list those mods because i haven't the slightest clue of what your talking about Im more into the custom cars (e.g. low riders, mini trucks) soo I was wondering does anyone have ideas to make this baby custom? Thanks guys, finally people that dont call me a fag for having a bmw
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!

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
