I've not long bought a dakar yellow 318ti sport that I plan on using for targa/lanes rallies.

I'm changing the steering wheel for a deep dish wheel, fitting a hydraulic handbrake, sump guard and a welded diff.

I'd welcome all suggestions on how to improve the little car. Engine swaps aren't available to me, neither is any form of forced induction...

I'm from N.Ireland btw 🖑😎🖑

I've seen a dakar yellow one once in person, but was confident it was a respray on another color. But no color is nicer. Estoril is close, but never seen that on a ti either.

Never available in the US except as an Individual special order. In the UK I believe it was called the SE or Special Edition.

Welcome to the family!

Yeah that appears to be the sport model.

What does the interior look like? Same as the US sport interior? (cloth centers with leather sides)

I notice the slats are painted black in the bumper cover. Is that stock, or was that done after sale? Ours were always body color.

Cheers 😁

The interior is full black leather and yeah you're right, a previous owner has painted the slots at some stage.

Intersting. Full leather. Are they sport seats, or just the regular leather seats?

Power adjustable seats, or manual (with a bunch of levers on the side to adjust them).

Just curious- no need to answer if you don't want to.

Our sport interiors had seats similar to the E30 M3 seats, with leather sides and cloth in the center. You could have red/black cloth with red stitching on the leather (which I have); gray/black cloth with black stitching

Man i f that had yellow contrast stitching on the black leather it would look cool!

Yeah, it appears to be full black leather with some sort of pattern on the centres. The seats are manual

Yep. Those are the same seats we have, but the textured leather on yours is cloth on ours.

This is the only (crappy) picture I have handy- you can sort of see the cloth inserts on the seats and contrast red stitching on the seats and shifter boot.
