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.
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.
Glad you love your new car I came from Benzo's too

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"
