    I swapped this this for my impreza a while back and since then ive got stuck in and made it how I wanted it ,
    bought it with conversion in place and then it started,
    so here is how I got it
    [​IMG]
    so got it straight to the garage fitted my 15" wheels but the tyres were huge from the 5 series so they needed to go too
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Having decided on a colour I pulled it into the spray bay and got prepping for all of 10mins then just cracked out the roller and had done with lol

    did the wheels blue with orange centres , don't ask why but it worked out nice in the end
    [​IMG]

    test fit on chopped springs
    [​IMG]

    well with the paint dry and happy with the finish to say it was a 2hours paint job tops I took it for a short run to find it drove like shit with chopped springs , so back to the garage to wait for the coilovers and then fitted them today and im really chuffed now

    a quick lock pic modified hubs and rack spacers

    so here it is today Extremely rolled arches due to et0 wheels (20mm spacers)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    welded my new seats in and harnesses ready for buxton and some much needed track time
    [​IMG]

    more pics and updates tomorrow a few little things to do/finish

    heres the spec so far:
    its a 318 with a 325 190bhp non vanos engine swap, 2.8 manifolds, forced induction,straight through exhaust, coilovers , bucket seats ,harneses , hydraulic handbrake , fully stripped , modifed chopped hubs for more lock , rack spacers, welded diff , 20mm spacers all round ,e46 bottom arms and lolly pops , e92 drop links
    Body wise paint was rollered on, satin bumpers and gloss black roof, getto rolled arches , bbs s wheels in baby blue with orange centres , lamex lights and i think thats it its really a budget drifter and cant wait for this years drifting to start
    hope you enjoy cheers tim

    That paint looks great. Did you just roll it on straight out of the tin?

    Ye but why not leave it black?

    It looked cool when it was black on silver bbs wheels, all it needed was different tyres and it would of looked cool.

    But thats only my opinion.

    i disagree, i think its better grey, more personal and doesnt blend into the overpopulated crowd of bmw's.

    nah man, i think its cool

    I didn't like it black to be honest and I really like to put my stamp on cars even if its a missile , I mean it cost me £12 to paint it and 2hours tops of my time so why the hell not :)

    Nice one good job! Roller paint job looks well :)
    Why you change the inlet? Isn't the m50 325 inlet the one everyone looks for?
    Straight though exhaust is a bad idea on a NA, back pressure is created by the exhaust in NA cars. Loss in back pressure will mean a loss in power. In a turbo it adds power as the turbo creates the back pressure.
    I would stick a back box on if I where you.
