I got a good amount of attention. I was impressed actually lol. Some guy thought I had a 6cy cause my exhaust lol. Everyone loved the rims and stance Haa. They thought it was a cool car, and when I told them my plans of the s52 they thought it was sweet. When I do the swap I'm gonna leave the 318 badge. Gotta love that sleeper status.

Kept stock 318ti badge. The sound of an I6 without cats is the new badge.

I'm still using the stock 318 exhaust. Maybe when I have the custom (2.5, 2.75?) in exhaust built, it will sound a more aggressive.

I might be jaded (there are 4 318ti's at my work, and I own 2) but are ti's really considered rare? Where I live I see em occasionally, I'm the only GUY in town with one that I know of...

I never see them around, even at the local BMW meets. I am one of only two. And most of the time, the guy drives his Cooper S.

Well, they aren't common, let's put it that way... They only sold the car in North America for 4 years. But that said, they are beamers so the ones that were sold (minus the written off ones) are usually still rolling. As far as I know there are only 3 in my whole city, including mine which I brought in from another Province.

And in reference to the thread topic, I haven't swapped mine yet but plans are in the works. I think when it's done I would probably change the emblems, it can go either way really, I like the shaved look, but changing it adds a little bit of personality to it, but leaving it the same does let em wonder a little. So, it really comes down to your choice. Pros n Cons of each.


Cheers

The 318 on my red car is VERY crooked compared to the Ti, so it will prolly get shaved...

Default Z badge?

Finishing up my Z3 swap into my ti. I've got the whole rear sub frame, 2.8 aluminum block engine, steering rack and 5 speed from the Z3 among other small Z parts. The car is now about half Z. Does it make any sense to add a "Z" in the badge? For example:
1. 328Zti
2. 328tiZ
3. 328Zit Ha!
4. 328ti
5. 318ti Sleeper
6. ?

^^^^

I would probably just stick with either 328Ti or 318ti. Putting the "Z" would make it too long on an already short deck.

I can go for months w/o seeing a Ti in the area. Even at the local BMW meets, I am one of only 2 people owns a Ti, and the other person's is stock. I think I'll re-badge. The growl from the I6, definitely makes people wonder.
