the real issue lies in the white smoke. hopefully it is only the head gasket. but its possible it could be worse.

Acura Ilx. It's basically a "luxury" civic. Peppy but not much torque.

Don't even bother replacing a HG on an M42 just swap the engine out all together...The engine itself is peppy and gutless, but if you're lucky you might be able to swap in a M44 from the e36 models for a bit more oomph without too much more headache. Either way I'm not a fan of either engine and would want a tride and true M20 or above inside the durty 30. The other bad thing about getting a 4cylinder chassis are the brakes are smaller and the rear differential is smaller meaning it can't handle higher loads of power down the line and you'll have a bit of a headache if you decide to upgrade your brakes which you will want/need to do as the 318's slow you down about as quickly as Fred Flinstone's feet.

It's basically what the TSX first was when compared to the TL at the time. Before it got too big and a V6 basically making it a short wheelbase TL

I'd want to keep it as cheap as possible. I thought the 318is was the same as the 325is sans engine.

A "luxury civic" is an oxymoron. LOL that said looked up pics, not bad for a Honda.

You'd be surprised what's different between an e46 325i and a e46 330i outside of just the engine...Brakes, suspension, etc.

I get what your saying and not saying it's not true. But I read somewhere that the they were the same. I know they only made the e30 318iS in 1991.
