Hey all,

My name is Ben and I'm a long time BMW/Car enthusiast.

Life has dealt me a funny hand lately and I sold off my 911 g-body Targa. Since the sale, I decided to take my 318ti and make a personal quest for the ultimate fun and unique street car.

This project will revolve around a two owner m44 and mister52 new supercharger offering.

I've ordered a bunch of parts this week and I'll update as I go but for now a here is how I bought the car:

I bought it from the original owner of 22 years, who had done the most right updates on it in his ownership. Springs, struts, Stromung exhaust, x-brace, swaybars, brake lines, etc. The car came with every receipt for service from the 3100 mile oil change till present day.

Nice to meet you all and I look forward to sharing this journey with anyone who is listening.

Josh, it won't be THAT exciting. I'm a person of balance and reservation in most things in life, and cars are no different. Nothing like what you've done, which is super rad!

Exciting would be up to the person that is working on it! Besides I find one of the most exciting things just being able to drive the car - then change something - drive it again - and see how it changes and responds differently with each mod. But thanks! and again - keep us up to date!
