2 door E30 318i manual

Recommended Posts

Just bought a tidy manual 318i off my mates mum. Its a wee beauty. just enough poke for a laugh. small and light enough with the unbeatable combo of manual gearbox, rear wheel drive and 2 doors. boom. she had the infamous cam issue a 20000 or so km ago and had the cam an followers replaced so pretty happy there. I was just wondering if there is anything I can do to the oil feed rail or whatever is the root cause to try and stop it happening again. I did the cam belt the other day to get that demon out of the way .If it dies oneday i guess ill put an m42 or something in it (not sure how hard that is) .

I took it for a spirited drive up the port hills the other night and it was great fun but the handling could do with a bit more tautness. does anyone local have the thicker front and a rear sway bar from one of the 325i models? is that a good handling mod? what aother sympathetic handling mods are best to start with? i possibly could look at the bushes etc too.

Any way I'm lovin it, rust free and very straight and seems to be plenty of life left in her.

Welcome Shane,

Sounds like a great little car, here's all you need to know to sort out that handling; shocks, springs, bushes, seats, brakes, belts, cage.. :)

Come and join the fun.

Cheers, John
