Default New ti owner from Chicago

Hey all. Just picked up my first BMW, an Alpineweiss 96 318ti Sport, coming from a history of mostly Japanese cars. Picked it up as a project as it has a cranking, but no start condition and other issues with it. Was lurking on here for awhile researching the issues before making the purchase. Hopefully it wont be a bad decision, lol. I've always liked the shape of the ti, so I'm gonna try and revive, and enjoy it. Thanks everyone!

Welcome. It wasn't a bad decision.

I grew up in Chicago area. Couldn't stand rusted out cars so moved out West. (not to mention the weather)

Good luck!

I grew up in my dad's Elan, and that was his license plate

Cheers, I just joined also. Enjoyed my ti for years and glad you chose it instead of continuing with Japanese cars. I think youíll find German cars make better sounds and can do donuts unlike a Integra or prelude.
