Regrettably, I no longer own this car. While I put a lot of love, sweat and swearing into making this car what I had imagined, it ultimately was never worth the effort. I'd fix one thing, and two others would break. I eventually parted out all of the cosmetic bits, and some of the performance stuff, and sold it back to the previous owner's friend. During my time owning this 318ti, I made a number of large modifications. I refreshed the entire suspension, putting K Sport coilovers, Condor Speed Shop solid busings all the way around, and sourced an E28 M5 Limited Slip Differential for the rear end. I slapped on my favorite BMW wheels of all time (BBS RC090), wrapped in some admittedly skinny Falken tires. Cosmetically the car had M-Tech bits every where, functional rally lights up front, M3 seats inside and so on. In a little under a year, the car went from a comfortable daily, to a full blown project. Although I did ruin it a little bit, I still had a great deal of fun with this car. The height of which was taking this car to Bimmerfest 2016. The last thing I did with this car was get it into Performance BMW Magazine. It was car of the month in their Reader's Rides section of the December 2016 issue. this car will definitely have a special place in my heart, I had never done that much work on a car myself before. But things change, and it was time to move on. I'll miss it a great deal, but I'm sure it'll keep popping up online with the new owner. This car has a way of coming back from the dead.
