Smile New 95 318ti owner

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say I'm new to the forum and as of last Saturday a new owner of a 95 BMW 318ti. Just curious if there is anything anybody recommends me to do to the car right of the bat?

Any mods or little quirks just let me know. Oh, I need new floormats any thoughts on that as well would be great.

Thanks,

Mark

what color floor mats are you looking for?? i might have a black set laying around i could sell.

welcome to the site mark!

the first thing i recommend is just giving her a bath and detailing her. clean the inside up and get it ready for a lot of fun driving.

its really personal preference of what you wanna do first.

post some picture up if you can so we can all see it.

if it needs an oil change do that too.

Congrats and welcome to the ti forum! You will learn plenty from the members here. Post up some pics and info on the bimmer.

Josh gave some good info on cleaning it up. I would suggest doing a tune up like spark plugs, oil, coolant, transmission fluid, fuel and air filter. That way you are starting fresh since you might not know the history of the ti.

For minor mods you can start with clear corner, side marker ,euro tail lights and depo headlight (HID optional). BMW dealership mat is one of the best even though a little expensive.

Welcome, and yea a tune up would be a good idea. The first things i did was clean the interior, oil change, and installed a new HU. But its all up to you, you should post some pics up so we can see it.

Thanks guys! I will take pics as soon as I can and post them here. It's black w/ black interior. So I would interested in the black floormats you have for sale. How much are you willing to part with them? Any pics would be great as well!
