There's a 518i over here, not sure when they stopped making them though, the last model I remember having the 1.8litre engine was the model before synthetic's (cant remember the code, lol!)....I wouldn't wish the 1.8litre on anybody, unless you're skint and cant aford the 2.0litre atleast...bloody gutless, too! Atleast with a 2.0litre you get a reasonable engine note!

Stock for now. I bought the extended warrantee w/ it, plus I currently have a lack of fundage so it'll be awhile. The first thing I plan on doing is a stall. I hate the dead spot from ~35. Next: exhaust, and then I'll consider a cam. At some point I'm thinking I might need to upgrade to a 12 bolt too.

Actually yes I do have a 2001 5 series. When I graduate with my degree I get a new car in 9 years. Get your facts straight

Nice! I have a lot of friends with f-bodies and have really come to respect them. They can be made DAMN fast for rather cheap.

here is a vid of a few guys from my car group/club/community/circleoffriends/peeps runing around in thier F-Bodies:

clicky clicky!

I'd definately have to go with my 79' Silverado lol.. especially now with the bed and front clip (minus rad support) removed. I'm just kidding, it's probably the worst/ugliest piece on here (atleast for now in the state it's in).

There's a few people on here that own some pretty nice cars, so it's kind of hard to choose really who has the nicest.

I guess it would be an E34 then, we don't even get a 520i, smallest engine we get is in the 525i. And I think the 318i's engine was a 1.9? (assuming its the same as in the E34 518i)
