Simple quick question, is the 318ti a rear wheel drive car? I checked around but couldnt get a very solid answer. ghead
Thanks in advance
Also, does anyone know the difference in size between 318i and 318ti? and if they all have ABS?
Thanks a ton in advance for my questions

the 318ti is rwd like all bmw's, unless there is a X in the model description which would mean AWD. and it has ABS standard.

the 318ti uses the headlights off the sedan, and has a pretty different interior. and its probably a little more cramped in the back, but it's still built on a e36 chasis so there may not be a whole lot of difference in cabin size.

I thought the ti used the e30 chassis?

I know it has the e30 differential.

If you are looking to buy a 318, do not buy a ti. An i or is will have more room, better quality interior, and its easier to get the right parts. The ti use older parts, a mixture of body parts, and completly separate interior parts. This means buying parts is a pain.

i know the ti shares some E30 suspension components aswell, but i thought it was still considered a e36 chasis. i could be wrong though

The ti suspension is very simular to E30 M3 suspension. ti's are technically an E36... and a great little car.
