The name is Eric here and I reside in Troy, Ohio. Just North of Dayton.
I'm far from a Message forum Newb. I've owned many different vehicles over the years and researching them on the net. I've owned/Administered/Moderated several forums myself along the way as well.
I'm actually heading out the door shortly to do the transaction on the 318i! It'll be mine in about an hour or so!
It's a 97 318i sedan, 5 Speed, Leather, Sunroof, Leather. It had the Low powered M44 in it as well. Which is fine since the car will be a commuter only and I need the good fuel mileage.
I do need to know where to buy a "Chip/Software" to upgrade the ECU.
