There were approximately 500 Ti's brought to the US for 1999. Mine has a production date of 10/98. Biggest differences are the 3 spoke M wheel and side air bags. All are sport models. Interesting side note: my '99 cali top has one-touch open, my '96 does not. Love that.

My car is wired for side impact air bags, but doesn't have them. Can you take a picture of the door panels, where the air bag deploys from? Look inside your door near where the lock is, there is a panel with the build date on it.

Production date is on a placard in the door jamb. Same decal that lists tire air pressure.

Generally, BMW starts building a given model year ~August of the previous the year, so 10/98 production date for a 99 model would be normal. Also normal for them to sell the remaining stock of a discontinued model as 1 model year newer. I believe the E46 came out in '99, but no M3 or compact in North America. Perfect opportunity to sell off the remaining E36 M3's and Ti's for top dollar as "1999's" instead of closeouts on last year's model.

Supposedly, the E30 was phased out in the same manner, and all '91 318's were sports, but it was a lil' goofy because the sport packs were all dealer-installed. Maybe the "99" Ti's got a similar treatment and some dealers forgot to install the airbags or steering wheel upgrade. . .

Very interesting. I may start a thread for '99's asking for production date and last VIN digits.
