1991 BMW 318is - 5 speed Coupe

I have for sale a beautiful 1991 BMW 318is (e30). For 1991 ONLY, MW offered the 318is, hich was virtually identical to the 325is but for its engine. Instead of a 2.5-liter six-cylinder M20, he 318is was powered by a 1.8-liter M42 inline four.

The car is Brilliant Red with grey cloth sport interior, speed, anual sunroof, nd power windows, ith central locking doors. The car has just over 187,000 miles.

Mechanically this car is in perfect condition. I have gone through the entire car, nd would not hesitate to daily drive this car anywhere.

The absolute only cons about the car are a couple imperfections in the paint and the interior

The exterior paint is pretty good, ut not perfect. There are some dings and paint chips around the car no bigger than the size of a popcorn seed. The driver side door seems to have faded just a slightly darker color than the rest of the body. I am not sure, ut it is single stage paint and might be able to be buffed out. Finally the right rear lower panel below the bumper, ooks to have been touched up. No body damage, have looked on the inside of the car to verify, ut maybe paint was chipping and previous owner tried to touch it up with non factory red (still matches pretty good).

The grey cloth interior is not bad at all, ut shows a little wear. The grey sport seat cloth interior is original to the car.

Those are the only faults on the whole car. mechanically you cant find a nicer e30. Everything has been addressed. The exterior, ven with faults, s still very very good. No body damage. No rust.

Its becoming very hard to find clean well sorted E30s. I hope the new owner continues to appreciate the car.

**I have no problem working with the buyer to ship the car. I will take pictures of the car before and after it is loaded on the trailer and send them to the buyer. I like to do this so the buyer knows no damage was caused when the shipping company loaded the car.**
