Hi, looking forward to reading and making my 1996 BMw 318 ti the car it should be. I bought the car 3 years ago from some freinds. Their son used the car for college, wanted a truck after graduation. My son used the BMW for 3 years at college. The car is starting to show its age, it had problems every time he drove it and he didn't want to fix it. I traded a 1994 Jeep wrangler with him foir the BMW. Both of us are happy with the trade. I loved the Jeep, now devoting my attention to the BMW. The car will be a daily driver in the summer, garaged in the winter. I hope to keep the car fora long, long time. I plan to fix it up every year and restore it back to great shape.
