Default Mostly new to cars and a new 318ti owner.


I am generally a new car owner, I've had my license for years but never cared much for driving. I've owned a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder that was passed down to me, but it had a bad front end so I sold it and picked up a 1999 Toyota Camry because I just needed a vehicle. I've always wanted a small hatchback and managed to stumble upon a lone 318ti on Craigslist. That of course led me to this forum and after reading many of your posts and builds I was convinced. I had to have the car despite it needing some work and so I bought it to the sum of $2300 CAD ($1700 USD).

I love the appearance of these little 318ti's and after buying it, I drove it home with a smile on my face; the first time I've enjoyed driving. However since then it has been parked. I wanted to take care of it and fix up all of its issues. The previous owner had never done the cooling system and the valve cover gasket also had a leak. So far I've replaced the valve cover gasket and spark plugs, all of the blown strut supports, fixed one of the windows and replaced the cracked windshield cowls. Now I've nearly replaced the entire cooling system, except the radiator. I've done all of this with very little prior car repair experience and mostly on my own using all of the helpful information on this website.

Thank you all for the helpful information that has definitely assisted in sprouting my interest in cars, but really I mostly care only care for the 318Ti . I will definitely be asking for some help soon!
