oh cool so you bought your bro's car?

does it have intake/exhaust already?

If so I think you should get a chip, and maybe start saving up for some ellipsoids, or save up for some suspension work: swaybars, x-brace, etc.

depending on what condition its in, id maybe use it towards maintainace. but thats a shitty way to spend money lollll.. if i were you id get a chip and/ or sound system.

btw what year is the car? i may have a chip for you, let me know if your DME is 413. maybe ill sell you my chip its pretty much a copy of the TMS chip but a bit richer so if you add an intake it will compliment it.

PS- did you sell your old rims you had on the 318?

since i bought the car from my brother, i know whats been done to it, the engine is in tip top shape, he changed alot fo stuff on it maintenance wise, gaskets, belts, plugs, ignition coils, air, oil, and fuel pump filters are new, has either a new water or fuel pump, not sure, maybe its both, all it needs right now is an oil change and a new fuel filter

as for mods all it has is a BMP intake, BavAuto Performance Coils, and NGK Iridium Plugs

and about the in dash dvd, im trying to work out a deal with a guy that works at an electronics store....

I agree with speedinfusion that you should get all the maintenance done even though somebody you knew had it. That way you can start to know what you have done and have a ride that won't brake.
