The last time I had to do that, I laid 11 spare circuits. I'm glad I did as I have since used 8 of them.

Hahaha, yeah I know what you mean man. Unfortunately starters usually have to be in the most inconvenient location towards the back of the engine on the bottom. It's the nature of the beast, they gotta engage with the flywheel. Bummer about the motor, hope you get everything sorted out. Any plans on an upgrade?

bought a set of ACS Drivers Collection badges for the Ti since I already have the knob and sent some cashola to Jess for an alternator since mine decided to crap out last night.

New windshield, wiper cowl, ///M shift knob, Wheelskins wheel cover. 2 tires a few days ago... Inspection next week...

Bt the way, unless you've had it done, you wouldn't believe the difference the new windshield makes. Sure the new wiper cowl makes the car look better, but the new windshield is wonderful! It wasn't cracked, but I had no idea how just how BAD the old one was!

I should have mentioned...
I HIGHLY recommend UNION AUTO GLASS if you live in Delaware, Maryland, southern New Jersey and southern Chester County, Pennsylvania.
They use PPG windshields on 318ti's...TOP QUALITY.
They do excellent work, and the price is right!

i am going to go look at a 328is tomorrow. it still drives but had enough body damage to total it. it is said to have 120k on it and 5sp. so if all goes good the plan is to go 2.8 and 5 speed swap. needless to say i got my work cut out for me.

You wouldn't happen to have a black ti right?


Last night I had a nice talk with Lucifer(my car).. And he stated that one of his atriums has a hole in it.. (basically leaking oil all over the block) I told him that I would fix him right up and that he would be able to cool off as the ac pulley got f'd up.. He seemed happy about a 2.5 replacing the 1.8.. Then we talked about a remote start, headlight/fogs and a s50 next summer. Also stated he might have a step sister on the way..

It's one thing to talk to your car, but when they talk back? You need counselling.

That is unless your mother is your car.

I have a "Titinaum Silver" 1998 318ti Sport with manual transmission...The only reason I know the actual color name is because I got some touch-up paint from the dealer!
