1999 BMW 318ti M Sport

635794023986583977

Almost 14 years after the re-introduction of the MINI brand in the US, BMW seems to have made a rather shrewd move in keeping this marque in their fold. It seems a distant memory, then, when BMW tried its hand at a small hatchback in the form of a shortened E36 3 series. The Compact, as it became known, would be the entry point for those seeking that BMW badge in the 1990s. The US market would only receive the 318ti, powered by the 1.9 liter inline-4 that also found a home in such cars as the 318i sedan and Z3 roadster. This 318ti for sale in Missouri is in fantastic shape, equipped with a 5-speed manual and the M Sport package and looks rather sharp in Alpine White.

The E36 is certainly an attainable 3 series. Even the M badged variants are well within reach of the collector, if a bit more expensive than your more pedestrian models. There’s not much of a collectors market for the E36 Compact, but given the appreciation we’ve seen from this car’s spiritual predecessor, the 2002 Touring, who knows. There might be some collectability left in it just yet. This is certainly one of the better examples, so my guess is that it will take at least $6,000 to $7,000 to get the deal done, given where bidding is heading. Anything more than that would be getting a little bit ahead of the market, because at that level, you could start getting into some higher mileage M3s of this generation.

  1. These are good little cars. I would love one with a V6 swap. That said, why can’t a dealer put four matching tires on the car? Cheapskates; makes me wonder what else is cheap.
