There were so many problems, that he suggested that you simply get a 2002. It's a much classier car than the 320i. If you have one already, sell it and buy a good 2002 body. The suspension is much nicer, you can fit 528i 4-piston front calipers on the tii strut housings. The 320i front suspension is a dog. It uses the anti-roll bar as a trailing link to locate the lower control arm. It flexes like crazy.
I can't describe the pain that they're gone through for the conversion. Just don't even consider it. Buy a nice 2002 and go from there. Many more people have done the M2002 conversion, so there's more help out there.
