Great lil' "Beeemer"! :)
I'm having fun fixing it up.. .thinking about lowering it and placing sway bars to stabilize the suspension..

Folks I had to make up the zip code I'm from Nova Scotia Canada, this site doesn't recognise our postal codes.
I've owned my 1991 318i for a couple of years and recently have been using here in our Canadian winters for travel every day, return is about 65 miles. The rear wheel drive was a blast to get used to, again. I just had it painted for the first time and it came out great. I expect to drive this car for years it currently has 398000km or 245000mi, approx.It burns no oil, the only problem I'm having is locating the hook inside the gas cover to hang the gas cap on, it was misplaced during the paint job. If anyone has one or knows how I can get one please let me know at kguptell@eastlink.ca.
