    Thread: Why do I want a BMW 318ti?

    1. 11-19-2010 10:33 AM #101
      I did manage to find a cleanish Calyso Red for a fair asking price; have been trying to reach the owner.

      There was a 96 M Sport locally that keeps NOT selling on ebay because the reserve is too high. I was the last high bidder and didn't meet the reserve (each time the car goes for less). I get the guy on the phone and all he says is the reserve price; doesn't actually answer any questions; just keeps saying the price and talking about fees.

      I sold the 635 by the way to a very nice guy. He got a great deal on the car and I really dropped my pants on the price, but I am happy. How did he do that? By not discussing price, price, price.

      I don't NEED a 318Ti. If I find one I prefer it to be CLEAN, stock or OEM +, and have a high level of equipment (relatively). The proceeds from the 635 can go to far more useful things. With winter fast approaching and one project car in the works I am not desperate. If the right car pops up, sure I'll go for it.

      Believe me, it's no penalty to drive a loaded E39 everyday, even with it's laggard automatic.

      correction, the car is a '95 with M Tech front bumper, side skirts./ 5-Speed with 147K. 18" E46 Reps..some suspension work. Repainted Dakar Yellow. & french spec yellow fogs.

      What would you guys pay for this? Asking price is $3,900

      How many miles? I wouldn't want a 1995; aren't those OBD-I and M42 engines? Not sure on the OBD-I of that but they are the older 1.8's; I'd rather have the 1996+ 1.9 just because I don't like bastard one year engine/car combos.

      $3900 sounds steep to me for that car personally. Not insane, but steep.

      PM me; I'll give you the info for the 1996 M Sport at the Jersey Shore. 2 Owner. Super clean. No repaint. Asking $3800. I wasn't willing to spend that much. But I'd rather have a clean and original 1996 than a repainted 1995 for the same money.

      If you are serious about wanting one. I just found a 135i that I am interested in. We should talk.

      Quick specs:
      1998 Hellrot, 5MT and 88k miles
      16" wheels
      Red Milli-point cloth (very rare) seat with black leather bolsters
      Interior is Anthrazite (black)
      California Roof
      KN drop in filter
      Bosal exaust from headers back
      Exterior is about a 7.5/10
      Interior is 9/10

      Known issues: SRS light is on. I need a new drivers side seat belt latch. No pictures since I am actually on an airplane now. But I can send some to you. Letmeknow.

      Why do so many dudes go to respray these things in dakar yellow? There was one up here a couple months ago that was the same way.

      that car will probably sell for 3500 easy. heaps go for $1500.

      Just want to say I still have a crush on the 318ti, would be the perfect DD for this economy. I'd love one next to my Z4C.

      Someone needs to get their head checked. BMW e36 compact, my ass.
      Find yourself a well-sorted, reasonably-priced 1991 318is.
