98 BMW 318 iSE

Hi all, just joined the forum.

Betty, that's the car, is a 1998 BMW 318iSE with a Romano injection system fitted.

The company who fitted it in Morcambe turned out to be no good and have moved and changed names and now opperate from a small village south of Lancaster in Lancs.
All I will say about this is caveat emptor.

The system has now covered about 80k miles and any proper problems have had to be sorted out by myself, including purchasing a programming interface lead to fault find. This was after a garage in Colne told me to scrap the Romano system as they were Cr*p and fork out £1500 on a new system.

Only problem I really have with it is the car has lost some power on LPG, and as a 1.8 it didn't have much to start with. But the savings more than make up for it. Blackpool to Devon and back plus trips out, £80.

I will say, if you are a competant diy mechanic, don't be afraid of maintaining your system yourself.

Hi and Welcome,

Congratulations on finally getting there in the end!

in regards to losing power.. this shouldn't really be noticable on a 1.8.. maybe a re-tune of the LPG is needed?

All the best.
