My last car was a '94 Subaru WRX, sold it and went to Tanzania for three months, and coming back home I have just become a proud owner of a '96 318i (Japanese spec import).
It's completely stock at the moment. The first thing to change would probably be the stuck-in-Japanese frequencies radio...
Here are a few newbie concerns:
According to the wikipedia my engine is supposed to be a M43B18, I've found the chassis number, is there anywhere inside the engine bay that I can find out exactly what engine I have?
From what I gather it's the earlier 1.8L engines that have the gasket problem? I've also read about the plastic water pumps, would my engine have it?
Anyway I've enjoyed lurking and reading these forums and KBs so far.
