1992 BMW 3-Series

This is a first year, 1992 e36 with the M42 1.8L 4-cylinder and great Brilliant Rot paint. The car has no mechanical issues whatsoever aside from the AC not holding a charge, as mentioned and has a full maintenance history from new (92), including oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, etc. as well as major maintenance issues. I am the third owner and the car has living in GA it's whole life with no rush or corrosion whatsoever. The interior is nearly flawless aside from two small tears in the driver's seat, which has been replaced twice in the cars life. I drive it daily as the third owner and have put the last 30K odd miles on the car myself but have too many toys and it isn't being used to its full potential. This is a great chance to own a super clean and iconic car!
I recently installed Type-5 16" wheels from a 7-series and the car has four decent but not new tires as well as a recent oil change and new belts. In June of this year I drove the car to Boston via the Blue Ridge Parkway and in October of last year I drove it to New Hampshire and through New England. Depsite the high miles I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere!
While the stock stereo head unit does come with the car, I have installed a German market Clarion unit which matches the style and color of the original (That's how anal I am about BMWs!). This unit has an auxiliary input as well as USB connectivity and all manuals and adapters to the stock wiring.
Car is located in Savannah, GA and has a clean and clear title in my name as well as current registration. Transportation is up to the buyer but I am willing to assist and depending on destination, could possibly drive there and fly back. As I say, the car is flawless and great on long trips, in spite of mileage.
