    Cant blame him for trying to get the most money for it, but here we have rules about posting links to CL and Bat/ ebay auctions, so it will keep getting black-holed. Its happened to others, he isnt special.

    Yep, and it will keep getting black-holed until he posts a thread that meets the rules.

          and I support that. I avoided BaT as much as possible when I was selling the Aluminum Monster because I knew it didnt fit their ''model" and I wanted to ensure that it would find a good home and I could get parts back if they were changed out. That has happened and soon I will have a bunch of parts bought back

                    I've driven the "Baby M3" - it's a 320is.

                    The 318is is not an M3 in any shape or form. Actually, the M10 powered 318 is closer related if we want to get all technical..

                      I really like the look of the 3 gauge ashtray pod he's running in the 318is. Has anyone had these installed in their e30's?

                        Not sure who makes them nowadays, but those are nothing new.

                          VDO are what's pictured. Wondering how difficult it would be to install myself.

                              truth re 320is being the boy m3.
                              but:
                              -- 318is light, highly tossable and cheaper. miss mine tbh.
                              -- cmon on m10. m42 turbo or DASC with ITBs ftw.

                              EDIT: just agreeing with djjerme re M10+shortened M88 head = S14. but you're not going to convert an M10 to an S14 are you.

                                take an M10 and lob the last 2 combustion chambers off a M88 head - bam S14.. That's what I am meaning. And to be fair, any of the early chassis would usually be a measurable amount lighter than 318is - But the difference in weight between an early chassis vs a late is well documented in other places.

                                But really, it just comes down to people wanting to try and bring the 318is legend up to M3 status.

                                I'll be honest, I had never heard it used prior to BAT auctions usage (and maybe 5toes.)
