1998 BMW 318ti Reviews

I bought "Trixie", a Alpine White 318ti Sport, in 1996. She was the perfect car - fun, economical, and reliable. I sold her to a friend in 1999 when I decided to pay off all my bills before getting married. I received a call from the same friend 12 years later, asking if I was interested in buying her back for $700. I expected a battered wreck at that price. Instead she turned out to be in mint...
I bought this car after an exspensive divorce.....very good lookijng and reliable!
great car. cheap to run :)
