Howler is in the house

Hi all, I used to be a Merc driver and then I wanted to go faster and I bought Beamer.
I am a proud owner of a gem - 318i 1.9l pocket rocket and I love it. I have alot to learn about what to set, adjust and what not to fiddle with so please bear with me.

Well, for insurance purposes I wanted to keep the engine size the same. Irelands insurance system is crippling. Also, I got the car for pocket money with only 44k genuine miles on the clock. My Merc was a tank - much heavier also with a 2l engine. What astounded me that it's road holding is so good - man it sticks to the surface and you can really give it gas going through the bends. The more I drive it the more I love it. Much much nippier than my previous car.

Right, smaller engines offer nice, light front end handling!

You are correct. Tues I am sending her into a body shop to have her painwork and trimmings done seeing that I have the extra cash. Once that is done I shal post some pics and preen. I can kick my arse that I never made the change sooner. What a driving pleasure.

I wish they still sold 318tis's here in the states. Or a 325tds. Yum.

Glad to see you enjoy your purchase, looking forward to pics.

todays diesel models are simply called 325d
tds was the name of the early turbo models, f.e. the e30 324tds

actually, the e36 325tds was made until 98.. The 320tds was made in the e46 bodystyle until 2005 when the 1 series was introduced in europe the following year.

as far as I know there weren't any tds made in the e46 body style, except for the 320td which was the compact.
You're right about the e36 but I didn't mean to exclude it... I should have said "older diesels" instead of "early diesels"
