Hi, I'm new to the forum and in search of info google couldn't find me. I recently bought a brand new mazdaspeed protege after having only driven RWD my whole driving career. Long story short I ended up in the hospital after a bad accident, car totalled. I now am in the market for another car. I was lookin around for something small, rwd would be nice and with some juice. I'm browsing autotrader.com and come across a 1996 318TI ///M edition, claiming to be 210hp at the wheels as per a dyno test. Has anyone heard of this car? or could anyone possibly point me to some information about it? Im interested in the drivetrain and suspension, wondering if its the same as m3 (LSD, final gear ratio, etc), how much torque it makes, at what rpm it really starts making power, how much it weighs, compression ratio, basically the whitepages on it.
thanks for your help
