Hello gents.

I'm Stephen, 19, Born and Living in Dublin, Ireland.

I've just bought myself a 2001 318i ( 1.9 4pot ) [emoji2]

This is only my second car, I started with a 1999 VW Golf MK4 1.6 4DR.

Heres some pics of the two :).

The old Golf

Car is mechanicly sound, no problems driving with 122K Miles on the clock. A bargain at only 900 eur ( about 1200 usd )

Had some bad acceleration problems when I got it first but the usual MAF was the problem, gave it a clean and now the car sounds and pulls like a dream:)

Hey, thanks for the welcome. What you mean by the sidewalls? The actual side of the car or the off colour mirror cover? If its the mirror colour i just got the cover as it was missing, all thats left is spraypaint :)

Welcome. Think Jay means the painted lettering on the side of the tyres.

Really? The e60 next to it has them too lol

I'm pretty certain Bridgestone Turanza have never come with white lettered side walls in 205/55/16 ?

I see what your saying, maybe he did it himself but the other side the writing is a lot more faded. Ita a bit strange in my opinion xD

Thats on the diy list then :) The tyres are really good would be a shame to waist them over some s**tty sidewall paint xD

Well, just got my BMW scanner today, had over 80 yellow warning errors lol. Did a quick clear and not a single error returned. I also coded the alarm so the siren would souns but no luck, I checkes to see if the siren is there and it looks newish and is plugged in. Anyone got any ideas?
