1991 BMW 3-Series 318is Description

I'm selling my 90% restored e30 318is w/"rare" sunroof delete and M50 motor swap/upgrade.

This car was brought back to life after being discovered in a neighbors backyard. As you can see in the photos, I've completely gone through this vehicle both inside and out to make it look just like it did when it was new. Below is a list of just some of what was done...

M50 motor swap, 3.73 LSD, New Drive Shaft, New clutch, New lightweight flywheel, royal purple transmission fluid change, royal purplerear end fluid change, smoked Hella Ellipsoid headlights, smoked front and side markers, all new bumper trim, new front valance, tubular headers, full new exhaust, new paint, new front sport seat interior (upholstered in vinyl), new emblems all around, customer keyless entry installed, gauge cluster fully rebuilt, factory correctBBS wheels w/brand new tires, Euro clock upgrade, New front and rear break pads, New front wheel bearingand a bunch more I'm sure I forgot to list.

I've purchased this car solely to bringit back to life. As you can see in the photo's, I have 2 of the exact same model. Everything on the vehicle works as it should excluding theA/C, which can easily be added back. (I didn't want to spend the money or time to do it if someone was just going to rip it back out if they decide to make it a racecar).Theblower and heat work perfectly though.Car doesn't leak a drop of oil. Only minor leakis power steering fluid, but it's so minor it'salmost not worth mentioning.

The car drives good. I've putapproximately300 test miles on itafter completion. If I were keeping the car and wanted the drive to be perfect, I'd probably consider replacing some of the steering bushings and possible upgrade the power steering system. However, she drive and feels good the way she is. Just wanted to put that outthere for fellow perfectionists.

The paint job I would rate at a 7 out of 10. Only because I missed a few dings here and there when prepping. Other than that, she looksjust like new.

The interior came out great.All seat shocks have been replaced during the process of re-upholstering them,so they look and function like new. The back seat is still the factoryvinyl and looks great. The dashhad several cracks, so I have a plastic dash cap on it, which cleans it right up.

This car was built to be a daily driver for someone who loves them as much as I do.
Thank you for looking and please don't hesitate to email me with any questions.
