Just been lookin' at the stats on the 316Ti compact and it only has 115bhp. But the 1.8 engine is capable than much more than that, surely?

I mean, the e36 318i S has 140bhp.

Is the 316Ti easily tunable or what?

Thanks.

Why's this been moved? I as talking about the E46 318Ti compact. I was merely comparing it with the E36!

yea. the e46 owners don't speak alot. it's mostly because they are all older people as the e46 is the newer line of 3 series and not alot of kids or young people that spend time on their cars come to talk about them. the younger people have e36 as they are more affordable and way more common since they've been out over 10 years.

Ah okey. Decided I can't afford an E46 myself anyway... even a compact. Shame, but I can definately afford an E36 so I'll move over there for future posts i think!

Cheers mate. i take it from ur sig that you've got an E46 urself?
