Default Heyyyyyy Ti people

First off, I'm Daniel.. this is my 6th bimmer and my first 3 Series! I just sold my 750iL because I need something that gets better on gas. I wanted a car that was reliable, inexpensive and still fun to drive (read: manual and RWD). My friend has been giving me relentless _ _ _ _ for buying this car because it is so peasant but to me that is the appeal! So far I have REALLY enjoyed this car. It drives like a go-kart. I bought it 2 days ago from the original owner.. negotiated down to $2100. Here are the specs:

1996 BMW 318Ti
124,000 miles, one owner
Bostongruen Metallic on "STOFF NETZ FLACHG.M.BE/SANDGRAU" (that's cloth interior)
5-speed manual
air conditioning

it needs a few things. The clutch is on its way out, the headliner is falling down and the thermostat needs to be replaced (stuck open). I'm going to do the clutch job this weekend and I ordered all the parts today.

Glad to be a part of this forum!
