**FYI- Due to "human error" in the bidding process, the Autohunter Auction of this 318ti "Cali Top" ended without a legitimate high bidder. It was never sold on Auction. Fortunately that's been sorted out, and is listed for sale here on ClassicCars.com. I apologize for any inconveniences to those who have contacted me, and/or were confused by the published "Winning bid" on Auction reference to the 1996 BMW 318ti online. It is currently for sale, & on offer for your consideration. -This seldom seen in the wild, 1996 BMW 318ti "California Edition" with fully operational power "Cali Top", is finished in a rust free body of Arctic Silver Metallic, over a smooth black leather interior. Power for this head turner is supplied from the M44 DOHC 1.9-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. A bone stock example of the breed, her only "modifications" to date are the edition of 16" BMW Style 45 wheels wrapped in "Conti" 225/50 ZR-16 rubber to keep her on track. Offered for sale by BMW for only 4 years in the United States, this "Cali Edition" was sold new, and lived its first 16 years in California before spending time in Virginia, and Maryland during its tenure with three owners. **Recent maintenance includes -Full synthetic oil, & filter change, -Passenger window regulator replaced, -Front lower ball joints replaced, -Belt tensioner pulley/intake boot replaced, and Oil filter stand gasket. ***Previous owner presided over -A full cooling system refresh (radiator, coolant pump, all hoses etc.) in 11/2017, -All new belts and tensioners 11/2017, Replaced transmission mounts 11/2017, and Replaced windshield rubber cowling in 10/2017. This nice example of a 318ti "California Edition" is presently at home in garage in Stamford Connecticut, and is offered for sale on a clean Maryland title in the sellers name.
