just bought a 95 318ti had it for 3 months and i have some issues i'd like to discuss. 1) got stuck in the snow and ended up over heating also when in park/neutral it over heated 2) tires scrape fender when I hit a bump or make a hard turn 3) right window falls off track and pops out of the sliders 4) the ignition tumbler used to spin when i put the key in.. now the key doesn't turn at all..

Hi, the search is your friend. Most of those issues have be covered in extreme detail.

The tire thing can be a ton of different problems. Without more info we can not help. For example: tire size, wheels, lowered, suspension setup?
No more ti.

Sorry that you're having problems. Don't let the car overheat again, and make finding and fixing the overheating problem your first priority. BMW engines don't take kindly to overheating. Good luck.
