How does it do with a 1.6 compared to some British hatchbacks that must weigh quite a bit less?
erm theres not alot of British hatchbacks left other than ur mg ZR's etc but there not really british anymore lol. But it keeps up with the likes of ur saxo VTR and 106 gti. Friend of mine has a golf mk3 1.6 and due to it being only single point injection it struggles to keep up with me. Nowadays i just prefer cruising round in the bimmer dont feel the need to try and keep up with me mates.

My ride in the uk

This my pride and joy, my first BMW, being a family man with kids and dog it had to be a tourer,'97 318se, the car is stock (i think) except for the 17inch m3 wheels and lowered suspension.
I recently spent almost 1,000gbp getting the running gear overhauled and also had a new sump fitted after colliding with a large piece of rock on a country road which punched a hole through my sump. I,d just like to add, what a brilliant site this is for the beemer enthusiast. Updated pics of my baby.

Under Construction. Still have a lot of mods to complete, but it is getting there I think. Any opinions? I also have a kids. No dog though. I needed the four doors and the gas mileage is great. This is my first BMW, but certainly not the last. One day I hope to be the proud owner of an E30 as well.

the uk gearbox is just the same as stateside, its just the drivers position that changes.

Stevo,

I plan to paint the skirts and the rest of the car when I get my M3 body kit original color. I have a lot of little scratches from little rocks hitting it on the autobahn That should take care of the outside. Inside I plan to upgrade the upholstery to leather. Engine wise I will rebuild and prepare it for the DA supercharger. Then when it is all said and done I plan to try and find an E30 to work on.

The E36 will be my going to work car and the E30 will be for Sundays.

yeah I had the chance to drive down a few, after driving in the US for a while then having my first time driving back in my home country of England on some country roads, it was a blast, but a bit scary at first haha. So many people over here would fail the UK drivers test for sure, even if they just got the license where you can only drive automatic.
