Come on, this is a good thread. Let's not bring bf.c into it.

You know you drive a 318ti when
your headliner is held in with staples
after 10 years, you still can't figure how to turn off the rear windshield wiper
you learn there is a light behind the headlight switch

Wow, are you serious? I didn't know that either!

I'm now to the point that I wouldn't be surprised if there was a button hidden somewhere that lets the car drive by it's self and automatically knows where you want to go.

I got one.

You know you're a TI owner when you don't go through drive thrus at the bank and mcdonalds because you're too afraid your window won't roll back up.

Also, my headlight switch has no light behind it.

sure it does, unscrew the knob and pry the little plate off. Foglight switch has one too, it's almost the same bulb that lights the ring around your cigarette lighter and another that's used to light your HVAC panel.

I almost lost lol'd in gthe middle of biology.

You know you're a Ti owner when people say "what is it?"

When you see a fellow Ti owner and then post on the forums all the info you had about the car to see who owns it.

...You have learned the white knucked lesson, to never let off the full throttle turn, in the middle of the curve. (oversteer to UNDERSTEER)
Oversteer is much better than understeer IMO

I'll look for one but I'm not sure I have one. I know the cooler was still in the kitchen when I took that picture. Obviously the inside deck cover was removed, but I also found out that day the the back seat BOTTOM comes out easily without tools and the back seats lay flater than flat.
