Default aqua cali in Tampa Fl

Hi everyone, My name is Jim. Last week I picked up a 96 California edition individual. out of Miami. Its Aqua Metallic with paint code 451. I have been a BMW guy for the last 30 years, My first car was a 1976 2002, I had owned an e30, Currently own a 1997 e36 m3/4/5 also an e12 528i in pieces, rust repair. I have a 2011 Mini Countryman S 5 speed that I am replacing with the 318ti. Thanks for the great site I'm looking forward to learning all I can about my new car.

Welcome! I also have a Cali individual? What's your VIN? Our cars are probably twins (besides color).

Cool! Looking forward to the pictures, also would love to hear how you compare the ti to the other cars you have driving - once it runs nicely that is.
