1991 BMW 3-Series

BMW e30 chassis has the most race winning history than any other car ever made
Iconic Benchmark of sport cars! Fine piece of German engineering & timeless design!
Almost everybody knows everything about this car so I'll just do accurate description and really interested parties please do contact
BMW 318iS coupe base model, 5sp stick, BBS and Recaro seats
Looks European version but can't be certain.. No sunroof and no leather seats, no board computers, no power seats and pretty much it has nothing other than power windows. No power steering. Aircondition was working but it stopped cooling few years ago. Heater works fine and it does have an upgraded stereo working. Though the power is not as M3 this particular model is featherweight at 1050 kilos or so. Made for pure sporty driving experience
Single year production in 1991 - This is the last, the best of e30 and only year for this model.
True mileage unknown, the odometer is not working. Carfax showed same 40k miles since 2002 and it has never been fixed after that. I drive about 8-10k per year
Clean and clear title.
California car since I remember looking at the Carfax. No rust
It had some hits in the front and and was poorly fixed and cheap paint job done before I bought it, but the body was straight, no dings or dents, nor even scratches. Again paint job was really poor and it's peeling and needs new paint now. Rear corner under the bumper got hit while parked in the street with no one inside. Just hit and run accident. It did not affect the running condition, just the cosmetical
Mechanically the car drives and pulls fine as before. Motor has oil leaks from oil pan, needs gaskets and maybe more(like rebuild to some parts or whole motor, as I was told by the mechanic after I did last tune up). I'd say it needs another engine from M3 or tons of options available for it. I do want to mention that engine looks very very clean, without sludge, and I did oil changes every 3000 miles. Other than that there is lot's of things, suspension parts and bushings, entire control arms I replaced along with brakes. Clutch parts. Recently within a year I had brand new windshield installed, new battery, new 4 tires, fuel lines, all fluids from coolant to gear serviced. Paid over $2000 in bills. I never planned selling this car else I would not have invested this amount of money, but sadly things took a turn that I have to sell it now.
Just had it smogged and registration paid in January, have new 2017 tags
7th year in my ownership and I have driven 4 years as my only car almost everyday. Gone as far as San Diego and Palm Springs without any issues. It has been always in my covered parking but have not been driven much for past 2-3 years. On new tires I've gone maybe 60 miles
Asking 5k. Open to offers and trades for only good men's watch like Rolex,Panerai,JLC or something in the lines. I do not need another car
