hey tastade, did you get that ti on the dealership right after the railroad tracks on college ave.? if so i looked at it a few times and really liked it. i just moved to the kansas city area and i'm currently looking at a 96 with the california top, its silver metallic with a five speed. how much did you end up giving for your ti if you don't mind me asking. they are asking 9500 for the silver one and i'm not sure if thats a good deal or not.

Yeah, that is the one I bought. That dealer that always has the used BMW's and Audi's. I ended up trading for it, but their cash price would have been about 7,500. I traded my Acura legend and paid a difference of about $4500. They were asking $8500. It needed new tires and a window, otherwise it was pretty good mechanically. I have put about 10k miles on it without a problem. It is in storage for the winter now, I just moved to Iowa and don't want it to rust.

'98 Sport w/ California roof and Kompressor (Downing Atlanta Supercharger). The DASC easily fixes the only criticism I've ever heard about the ti--i.e. not enough power. I now have ~210hp (at the crank) in a 2800lb chassis which allows this "Budget M3" to keep up with (stock) E36 M3's on track straightaways as well as in the turns! ...and I still get 28-30 mpg around town!

BTW, I replaced the stock M-sport suspension, too. If you have an Active or Base and would like to upgrade the handling, please email me. Asking only $250 plus shipping for 4 lowering springs (~.75") and 4 shocks with ~75K one owner miles.

I bought my beautiful piece of black magic after being told that I could no longer drive my '88 Mazda RX-7 'vert due to a sky-diving accident I had a few years ago. This is my first Automatic, but I don't find it to be that much of a difference for my needs. I have noticed the absent feeling of "interactiveness" of having not to shift gears, but hey, it's all good as far as I'm concerned.

I was a little remiss to hear so many people sometimes bad-mouthing the 318ti. I finally had to realize that this was nothing more than a control tactic and that I needed to just "get along and enjoy my bimmer!"

the only option on my car at the time of purchase was ASC+T. i added fogs, (non-factory) cd changer and the OE 16" alloys.

there are other things i'd love to do to it, but all my hobbies are expensive. since the ti is my commuter, it only gets a little more than just what it needs.

'95 Sport, Jet Black, black interior, sunroof, manual, limited slip. Bought it new Feb '96, had a May '95 build date. Painted the rockers, M-Technic front/rear bumpers, M moulding, Supersprint (I love this pipe), powdercoated '95 double spokes with 235/40 17 Pilot Sports. It's either a supercharger for the ti or a used E36 M3 in the next few years. I would keep the ti no mater what other BMW's I would own. Who knows, maybe a track car in its future?

I feel like such a fool asking, but I have no idea which model my baby is... maybe one of you could help me out... I have ASC, Sun Roof, Cruise, Manual Tranny, Heated Seats, Fabric Interior, Power Mirrors, and I think the original head unit was an Alpine Casette/Stereo, that has since been changed out for a newer and much better Alpine... I don't know what else to list... It struck me as odd, initially, that the seats were non-leather but it had a fancy option like heated seats. I don't know, whatever it is I love it. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what model mine actually is, thanks.
