Good. Such articles should help keep ti prices down.

It's funny that their main complaint is "it's cheaper than a regular e36."

That's ok, I still like my little ti. I also find it funny that the Mustang II is on here. OK, so it wasn't the best Mustang, but what's embarrasing about selling a million units in 5 years?

Ha! I own two cars that made the list. Of course, my 318ti was "corrected" with S52 power, and my Porsche 914 has a turbocharged Subaru engine. But I own 16.7% of the 12 worst!!!
Sleeper Calypsorot 1996 318ti tintop. CA-legal swapped S52 from '98 M3, and ZF transmission with lightened flywheel/clutch. Magnaflow 2-into-1 muffler. Six-cylinder Eibach springs in front and 318ti H&R Sport springs in rear. Koni Sport adjustable dampers all around. Racing Dynamics 28mm & 19mm swaybars. M3 front hubs/brakes, E34 rear calipers, braided SS brake lines, Hawk HP-S pads. DS-II wheels. Polyflex purple bushings throughout, and factory lower x-brace. Fan delete mod. Engine mount reinforcements welded-in. 3.25 LSD rear diff from E28 & E30 axles.

Ha. I love how this is deemed an embarrassing car yet it also was mentioned that it was the second best handling car under $30k in 1997. Here's a link to that comparo, by the way.

Like JCA said, articles like this will keep the prices down for us
