My Ride: 2000 318Ci
First BWM Owner, UK


Just picked up my first BMW, it's only a little 318Ci, a little rough around the edges but I intend to get it back to full working order as soon as possible. It's been around the block a bit on 140k miles.

Problems discovered so far,
  • Smashed front bumper
  • Leaking rear light clusters
  • Heater / Fan controls not working
  • Engine not running correctly when cold or idling
  • Sticky enternal door handles (dont pop back in after opening the door)

The bumper I'm going to leave for the moment as its still on the car not causing problems, I dont know whether to replace it with stock, M3 or aftermarket.

In contact with someone for new inner and outer rear light clusters as well as replacement front indicators.

New FSR ordered today and in the post.

Its has a fake K&N style cone filter which I'm guessing is screwing up the MAF so I've also already ordered a replacement standard airbox with all the piping and MAF.

Hopefully next weekend that list above should be sorted...
