Default Ethan - Technoviolet sport from Australia

Hello

I'm Ethan and I've just picked up a '97 sport in Technoviolet.

I've had the car a few weeks now and have driven the car about 700kms and am very happy with it so far!

Problems so far: Car runs a bit cool and occasionally is a bit hesitant to start. I have ordered a new thermostat/waterpump, coolant temp sensor, and spark plugs which will hopefully resolve both the issues.

This is my first post but have stalked this forum for a few years now. It was a great resource for the e30 318is I had a few years ago. This car was a bit of a basket case that I was never really happy with despite even after a full suspension and engine rebuild.

Hopefully there are a few other aussies on this forum that I can connect with

Not jealous of the trunk mounted battery and the engine driven fan? (and better headlights)

That's my old e30. Engine driven clutch fan and clutch battery are standard on m42 318is.
