Most of you will winge at both these cars cos they are 1.8l and 2.0 auto's.
He had just got his prelude and we thought we would take em for a drag "long distance"
First race i used manual shift with the auto, but once hitting 3rd gear pushing it into drive wouldnt allow it to jump into 4th, and at 7000rpm well in red line, i had to slow down and watch him speed away.

Second race i used sports mode, he was quicker off the mark, well until around 160 where i brought him back in and passed him "long australian roads"

And to anyone who knocks the 318i i know there engines arnt built for performance, and they are extremely slugish off the mark, they seem to have a reasonable amount of power in the top 2 gears.

Last night i hit 205k's an hr or 128.5mph for anyone wanting to refrence it. I still had slightly over 1000 rpm to play with :P

bmw 318i m43 "not 42" vs prelude 89 2.0 4ws

Prelude wins drag, 318i is overall quicker, and looks twice as hot :P

when you are shifting instead of putting it in drive, leave it in 3rd and put it back into automatic mode/

I used to have an Auto 316i E30 (1991 - one of the last). I had that "over the ton" (100mph) on many occaisions. If a 316 can do it a 318 should be able to!

Your FACTS as it seems are that the m43 was an AUSTRALIAN exclusive model.

Now e30fanm3 may have been incorrect in his statement but your response is clearly over hostile - Particularly as you don't seem to have got your facts right yourself.


The M43 was for anyone that's interested produced for the following vehicles

M43 316i/318i/518i 93 to 1996
M43 316i/318i 96-98
M43 316i/318i 98 - 2002
And the early 1.8 Z3

to be sold all across the world including Europe, Africa, Australia and even the US.
Although the reason that e30fanm3 probably hadn't heard of them is that MOST 3 series below the 2 litre size in the US aren't 318i but 318is which all had either the m42 or the m44 engines

*Cough* Who's a fuckin NOOB *Cough* (and a prissy little kid)

Sorry for going off at you e30fanm3 but i did say in my post that it wasnt an m42 or m44 so u should have maybe check it out before you just started saying no such thing. And for a lame race, yes it was it was for shits and giggles. If i wanted a real race i would have been driving my hsv coupe 2002 which actually is a 4 sp auto but is 255kw v8. I dont know if you country sells these cars, but in Australia they are cheaper than a bmw, they look better but arnt as prestigous and well built. "My coupe has 77,000 and i have allready had a gearbox replaced under warrenty and a new radiator."
This car is made for straight line speeds unlike bmw's which are better off on tracks where handling is a big issue "bmw one of the best if u ask me"
So sorry again for going off at you, it just annoys me people that say there mind without knowing wat they are saying


BTW can anyone host a sig for me, ill put in my hsv and 318i
These are built by holden.

Just go to your control panel and start an album. You can upload images there.
