Default New Member 318ti Cali Roof 1997 0wner

Just wanted to say hello to the 318ti.org family. I've had this '97 318ti for about a year now. It has close to 139,000 miles on it. It drives good. I'm currently getting some engine work done. I also want to do some cosmetic work on it as well. Don't know much about BMW's but I must say that this vehicle has forced me to learn and I got hooked. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to interact with other members in the forum. Thank you and be blessed!!!

Welcome, and post some pics! I envy you your cali roof, but not the repair bill if it breaks. To that end, be sure to keep the roof's moving parts clean and lubricated to prolong their life and hopefully prevent breakdown. Cheers, John
