1996 BMW 1996 318ti Sport


Paid too much money for my 96, but it has been a downward spiral of parts and upgrades since. Sitting now on a Bilstien PSS9 coil over system with DS1 M3 rims. Euro spec lights, and a custom black headliner. Other modifications include a “FOGG”ed air box, Powerflex bushings all around,vented 328i Brakes with Hawk HPS pads and ATE rotors, and natural floor pan lightening. I never did pick up another shell.. so right now I have a wrecked 97 shell in my garage I am currently ripping apart for both it’s floor (to fix the floor in my Ti) and the rear suspension (for my fiat) not bad for $50 that I will probably get back when I sell the remains to the scrapyard. In april the car will have it’s floor repaired and will be stripped down for a respray. At that time the CF hood, M3 (twisty) skirts, Mtech rear bumper, and ACS lip spoiler will go on
