Unfiltered: The BMW 128ti
Unfiltered: The BMW 128tiArticle

I recently spent some time with the BMW 128 ti. Before I go any further, I find the letters 'ti' intriguing. So for those who are wondering, the ti is short for 'Turismo Internazionale'. Beemer first used the ti badge in 1963 on the 1800Ti, a punchy 110-horsepower sedan that imbibed the qualities of a true Turismo Internazionale model as defined by BMW.
