Ever saw a car then bought it on the spot? My 3rd BMW is here...



I feel like I've been kicked in the nuts and I'm still trying to lose the aftershock.

So yesterday afternoon on my way home, I took the route that winds me through the Morningside Automall (which is about 1 minute from my house). Just as I was bending into one of the corners, something catches my eye at the Suzuki lot. A Jet Black 318Ti Sport, with the full M-Technik bodywork and all. Having a soft spot for the car since the day it came out in 1994 (kind of like my M3...), I swerved in the driveway.

1996, 220k, 5-speed, full M-Technik cloth/'ette sport interior, M-Technik front and rear bumpers, M mouldings, BLACK HEADLINER, sunroof, heated seats, premium sound...it's more optioned than my M3. Also comes with the stock 5-spokes on Michelins as well as a full winter wheel/tire setup that I haven't even seen yet. A touch of rust at each rear 1/4, but I really don't care for what I paid (probably get it repaired anyways though).

Sales manager walked out, saw the M3, threw me the keys and said have fun. Went for a nice drive, love this damn car. Left after the drive planning to mull it over on the weekend, then found myself back at the dealer a couple hours later and signed the paperwork. I was planning to buy a 4cyl winter beater anyways, and I swore it wouldn't be a BMW...ah well.

It'll be at Bimmersport for the next couple weeks since Raisa and I are taking off for Jamaica soon. I'll also put my set of polished lip Contours on it when I get back, both sets of wheels will be up FS.

Do I have maXbimmer approval on this impulse buy?




Update October 1st:

Back from Jamaica...Just picked up the Ti from Bimmersport and took a couple cell phone shots.





The interior:







And finally, my lineup:



In the next week, the M3 will be put into hibernation in the right side of the garage and the Ti will be sitting in its spot on M Contours with 4300k HIDs.

Soooo what's that now, 4 BMWs in your driveway?

I approve. Plus, this was inevitable. You know this.

Yup, 4 now. In order of appearance:

1990 325iS (garage queen, really a heirloom that will never leave)
2000 323i SP (mom's daily)
1995 M3 US-spec (supposed to be my winter car, got completely out of hand and needs a photoshoot with the flared lips and new 18" BBS')
1996 318Ti Sport M-technik (now the new winter car, we'll see what happens)

It's like a spreading disease.

At least you went there with the intention of looking at a car. I was just trying to get home to enjoy the bottle of Wray & Nephew I bought.

lol, mine wanted one too. I convinced her to get a Protegé5 a few weeks back though, a 12 year old BMW isn't exactly a smart move for someone who just wants to get in and drive everyday.

She now hates me though.
