Default Stumbled upon the 318ti world

Yo everyone! Glad I found a website where 318ti fans can gather! Personally, I think this is an awesome site to find information etc. about the car. Just wanted to introduce myself so you guys know where Iím coming from: Well Iím a 17 year old Senior in high school, hopefully finishing up all my work, college apps, etc. Been a car freak since I was 2. Originally I was a Honda-guy, obsessed over clean Hondaís, and always wanting to start my project car. However, Iím not exactly rich, nor middle-class. Bit on the lower side. Donít even have a garage where I could tinker around with cars. Anyways, as time passed, I got my license, and finally it seemed like the right time to get my own car. Of COURSE I was seeking out a Honda  Yet, things happened ( donít exactly know what ) , and these older BMWís caught my eye. These thingsÖ looked sick No matter how much haters are out there, I can proudly say that I would LOVE to own a 318ti  And my time is soon! Saw an ad a couple days ago of a 1995 red 318ti, 85,000 miles on it, with a replaced clutch, cold A/C, inspected for a year, all for $3000. Seems like a great deal to me  Well, canít say too much until I go see it, but Iím definitely going to see it. Anyways , enough about me. I just wanted ask about the tuning-capabilities of the 318ti. Im sure many of you guys know that Hondaís are one of THE most popular cars to tune and learn. People swap out their old trash motors and put amazing k-series into their small HondaísÖ Anyways, glad to be here, hopefully ill get the 318ti.. haha.. well talk to you guys soon!

swaps are really the only way to make power with a 318, the engine's they come with don't have much potential unless you go FI, which can be expensive

you could probably pick up a wrecked 325i pretty cheap, swap the engine in, then sell your old engine and part out the rest of the 325i and come out pretty even

Welcome to the board. Once I started driving my BMW 318is I knew I was hooked on BMW. Hope we (318ti.org) can help you with your ride.
