Which parts should I replace when servicing my BMW

Do you mean tune-up parts or something else? Is there anything wrong with your 318ti at the moment? If just tune-up parts, I would take a look at your spark plugs and change them if they haven't done in the last 30K miles or so. Also check your ignition coils while you're changing the plugs. Make sure you use the correct plugs and use cooper plugs such as, NGK and make sure they are correctly gaped. I would also change out the air filter, fuel filter as well. As for fluid, I would check the rear differential and flush it out if that haven't been done for the last 30-60K miles or so. I would also take a closer look at the serpentine belts, and all of the vacuum hoses and replace them if you find them hard and cracked.

The last thing is, depending on if you have an automatic or manual transmission, I would flush the fluid if you haven't done that at the last 30K miles or so. I use Redline products for manual and automatic transmission fluid as well as the rear differential.

Best of luck.

Did you recently add Freon in your AC system? You might have too much Freon in the system, which caused the AC compressor to recycle more frequent than normal. Or you might not have enough Freon in the system. These BMW's are very AC system are very finicky. Get an AC gauge and check the level (high side & Low side) pressure.

Will a saloon petrol pump fit a compact

They are so close to the same wiring and mounting and only a couple pounds different in pressure it should work out from my calculations

I have a 1996 bmw 318ti and it seems like it wants to stall out when idling like its not getting enough air intake and when driving it like bogs down when the pedals to the floor

Hi have you found your problem yet? I've replaced all the intake rubber air pipes around the head & replaced the 2 small rubber fuel seals inside the fuel pressure regulator. I'll be interested in your reply.

Do you mean that the gauge registers as empty, even after the tank is filled? Probably the sending unit needs to be replaced (it's in the tank, likely partially attached to the fuel pump).
