If it is indeed a Sport(full ///M body trim, except the mirrors) then it is a VERY good deal. Got a picture?

Sport vs non-sport

Daytona,
AFAIK, one of the major differences b/t the sport and non-sport models is that the sport had a LSD diff. which gives you better acceleration and is obviously better in the snow.

If you end up getting this car I happen to have a 4.44 LSD from a 318ti sport.
It's in great condition with no leaks. $200 firm.

Let me know.

4.44 is too short for manual tranny.

318ti

Daytona:
Here's a picture of my "95 Club Sport. Note the mirrors, which only were used that one year. Also, someone said that the Sports model has a limited slip differential. That is not necessarily true. It was only an option.

cheers,

Jack
