    Default Bmw 318ti noob greetings

    Hey guys, my name is Adam. I have lurked the forum for a little bit and j decided to join. I have a 95 bmw 318ti that I'm not sure which direction I want to go in lol. I'm a bit indecisive bc this is my first bmw owned. I have only worked on and owned old Ford trucks and v8s but I wanted to do something different for myself. Anyways just wanted to introduce myself to the forum.

    S52 swap it. Honestly haha, have a buddy who owns a techno-violet E36 318Ti (the purple sick ass color) and he went M52 and dropped to its belly on three piece wheels, need to find pictures but says the powers amazing in the chassis. I owned an M-Technic (basically m3 body kit and interior) Hell-Rot Red 318Ti a year back, amazing car and awesome daily. Wish they were more popular and werent seen as coupe's that were rear ended lmao

    Definitely looks like a project! Need to fix that rear end damage asap - looks like your e36 got rear-ended!

    but realistically; hoping your first mods a pair of BBS wheels (im talking the oem bmw bbs wheels) or maybe even multi-piece bmw wheels

    You won't get a supercharger to work well without standalone or at least an equivalent amount of money in FMU, injectors, fuel pump, sssquid chip, and other incidental parts. A straight-six swap will run like factory, bolts in, and gets you more power than a non-standalone supercharger would.

    A supercharged six makes more power boosted, too. No reason you can't still go with a procharger from Active Autowerks that bolts right on sometime down the road. There's so much other crap you can do to an E36 that it really doesn't make sense to start with power mods anyway. Just do a bunch of downhill canyon runs if you feel like you need to go fast.
