What's the difference between a club sport and a sport? I have an original 1998 TI broucher and it doesn't list the club sport as an option.

Option for my year are:

Base
Active
Sport

My car is sort of wierd. It's a '98 and I'm the second owner. I assume it's a base, because I don't have cruise, OBC, or foglights. But I do have other things that are not base. I assume these were options that were added:

California Roof
15" alloy wheels
Synthetic leather seats
Premium sound system
Artic Silver metalic paint

I also have ASC, but I thought that was standard.

Since you don't have the standard active options, OBC, cruise, you can rule out active. The 15" wheels would mean you have a base. If you had M-technic trim, it would be a Sport.

I had a California Roof in my 98.
It really liked that option.

Yeah, the roof is what sold me on this car. I was thinking that my 15" wheels were not stock because they are 10 spokes and I thought stock wheels were five spokes?

What does the M-technic trim look like?

I was able to dig up a Vehicle History Report that I got from the dealer. Here's some info from it.

Model Code: 9830 CG73
Color Code: 0309 Artic Silver Metal
Trim Code: K5SW Black Leatherette
Production Date: 1997/10

Vehicle Option Information
0098 Alp Radio C33
0782 100% 9830
0755 California Roof
0942 Special Charge

I'd really like to know what 9830 is. It's shows up in the model code and as an option. No luck with Google or searching 318ti digest archives.

Here is a photo of my 1998 Sport with California Roof. The front bumper shows the M-technic trim which is also used on the luxury M3 package.

I've got the Cali top as well ... I was wondering how many TI's there are with the California top, I wonder how rare it really is ...

Has anyone had their cali top replaced ? I'm wondering how much that'll cost me if I ever have to get it done ...

Can someone help me I am new to the site and I don't know if I have a "Sport", "Active" or "Base". I have a '96 Boston Green ti, w/cruise, moon roof, no fogs, 1.9L, 4sp. automatic or tiptronic manual, OBC, witham/fm cassette prewired with factory plug for direct connect CD changer and I have upgraded from the ten spoke 205-60-15's to the seven spoke 205-55-16's off of the 2000 323i. I have seen a couple of similar ones here without the skirts and front spoiler painted, when I purchased mine they were already painted. Are there any other engine specs I should know about? This is really a cool site!

My guess is you have an Active.

If you had M-technic trim I would say you had a Sport. Being that you have cruise and OBC I would say you have an Active. Cruise and OBC was standard with the Active although available as options on the Base and Sport.

I just purchased a Club Sport model from a dealer in Ft. Colllins Co. It is a nice car, I love the color hellrot (bright red), and the red/black interior inserts. I will try to post some pictures of it later today.

This is my first bimmer and I love it! When I was looking at the car at the dealership a BMW driver honked and waved as he went by. That suprised me, with my Acura Legend no one else even knew what it was. I never had a driver of another Legend wave or anything, even if I waved at them.
