I am starting a YouTube channel and will be focused around this car so please check it out. The channel is called Ninety-One Octane.
There is a group that's collecting Clubsport VIN #s for a registry of some sorts. Post the VIN up! And Congrats on the purchase!

Yeah I can definitely do that, do you know who I should contact or where I should go to post the vin? Id like to know more information on these cars as well so it would be cool to hear from some other owners!

Searching the forum for "club sport vin" lead me to this thread:
Club sport owners, what is your serial number?

Default Just joining this group - have a 99

Just starting work on a 99 ti, it's in really good shape now after being a California car all its life. Has the last year goodies - sunroof, 1.9l, etc. Was my brother's in LA, and in my hands now! He rebuilt most of it, great black paint, runs well. Pics after a while.

I'm new to the form but really have learned quite a bit over the last week as a new member and owner of a 1998 BMW 318ti (Active). Just learned I have an active. Without the firm I would have searched for hours.

Hello everybody, I'm glad I finally could get registered after 12 times trying to answer the questions. That was funny. I own a '98 318ti base with 235K miles, it's my daily drive for work. I use to do the maintenance and repairs myself trying to keep it in good shape. Actually I have some challenges, one of them is replace the fan motor... I was looking at google the easiest way but it looks to be about 6 hrs job... any advise is welcome please. Thank you guys.

Hello all from across the pond in the UK. I just bought my first 318ti, it's Cosmos Black and was manufactured in '97. It's a base model with no ASC+T but does have full black leather, sun roof, air con and sports wheel so seems like a good spec to me. It has 112k miles on the clock with the previous owner having it for the last 12 years and only put 48k on it during that time. He did a good job looking after it as the arches and sills are in really good condition, which is rare with our weather. It just needs the full cooling system replacing and the suspension arms and bushes looking at which I prefer to patching up rust. Going to be using it as a daily and maybe do a couple of track days in it. If I really like it I'll probably look to do a b28 swap at some point 0:-).

Correction: Upon inspection of the engine bay, the M44 is equipped with a cold air intake and equal length exhaust headers. Everything else is stock.
