Exclamation 3.2 ti makes front cover of BMW Performance Mag

September 2008 issue of Performance BMW Magazine What do you guys think?



(we already know the fender grills and corners need to go so leave that out )

If anyone has this issue share with us the details.

That's going to drive the price of our little bobtails up.
Good when looking to sell.
Bad when looking to buy.

wow i think it has potential but with the way this person went with the build he should have done the e46 m3 bumper.

i really love that interior too!


and yes you covered the things i would change. but i would also paint the hoods

no surprise that the bf.c people think it is ugly as balls

maybe some companies will see that there is still a needed market for the 318ti, m42/4 and so forth...but I doubt it

Yeah that thing is ugly. Look at the wheels, turn signals and the E46 M3 fender vents.

BMW sticker on windshield, chrome rims, corner lights, fender vents, and CF grills have to go. The interior is nice though. Also is it just the picture or did he put chrome windshield wipers?

I can understand the owners taste. He wants to mix american muscle with a little of chinese taste all into the euro car. The window says "BMW", but the hood doesn't even have a roundel. He could've atleast gone with a cf roundel like me.

I look for this magazine at Barns and Noble to see how much of our secret they disclose to the outside world....... >_>

I am just HAPPY to have a ti on the cover of a magazine even though it might not be the best looking one. Not everyday a ti get some attention! I am going to look for this mag locally and buy a copy of it.

Now people is going to jump on the ti bangwagon everywhere. Price is going up just like Steven said.

Lets not forget that this is a magazine from England and they are more than likely tired of the Euro look

the sticker is a bmw performance sticker im sure they said they wanted it on there for the cover shot.

but with the hood the guy could have at least either had the spot for the roundel filled or just put a roundel on it looks lame empty

Rims, corner lights, fender vents and CF grills needs to go. I'd also paint the hood. I'm not a fan of the interior color either. Doesn't match the car at all IMO.
