I vote for a 1.9. I used to have a 318ti, and I love the 1.9 motor. Hopefully I will have another ti someday.
You will have trouble finding a 1.9 owner who "wished they had bought a 2.8". They are a loyal group of people. FredR's certainly felt quick to me.
My advice (which is rarely the easy road): find a 97 Violet Red/Beige/Beige 1.9. Gorgeous car. Get one with a build date that will let you add roll hoops.
And FredR, I still have the cassette holder. I am working on it!
