1991 BMW 3-Series isThis is my five year long E30 project. This is my 1991 318is. I had a vision and it's now complete. I brought this car home from Dallas Fortwoth in 2011 with about 300 miles less than it now has on it. I don't drive it, ense one reason I am selling. It has the original M42 engine in it. It was rebuilt at 130,000, have the work order from the previous owner who had the work done. It has a Mark D Chip, ot really sure what that does for this engine but it's a 4 cylinder engine. Limited slip rear diff. as well. If I was to keep it I would be looking into a V8 or S54 swap (BMW of course). The car runs great. Brakes are brand new all around. Flowmaster exhaust. I did some of the mods like a short shifter, hich is very short and feels very solid. I put the Sparco seats in as well (I still have the stock leather sport seats). When I first brought the car home I gutted the interior and cleaned everything and put any fasteners that were missing by the previous owner back where they belonged. Some new parts here and there. The exterior was pretty much like you see it as far as paint. Body is dent free. I painted the rear lip spoiler. New euro light grills, hey look a bit more evil (some pictures were taken before I put the light grills in), ow beam lights are HID converted with Hella lenses. The lower chin spoiler is wrapped in 3M carbon fiber material, t was pretty pitted up and it was to see if I liked the look with carbon before painting. Needles to say, liked it so stayed with it. I made the splitter from 3/16" aluminum and polished it to match the look of the wheels, ery brite! Rear license plate black euro plate panel. I de-badged the deck lid but still have them if wanted. Plus lifetime window tint all around, o it's not window "tints", t's window tint. I know there are a few I'm forgetting.Now for the wheels, hese are classic HRE 535 3 piece wheels. These are 16x9 out back and 16x7.5 up front with KDW BFG tires, lso brand new. I bought the HRE's from a friend who had them mounted on his '79' Porsche 911. I had to have them and then I had a vision to have these on an E30. I had them completely gone over by one of the best wheel guys around and they look great. How they fit; rear hubs are M3 hubs machined down and drilled to 5x130 with drilled out rotors. The front is simply a 4x100 adaptech adapter to fit 5x130.Air-ride; The rear suspension is a Monroe shock and simple air bag, ront fully converted strut housing with double bellow setup. I have done a lot of work to make this setup work and look good without sacrificing ride and bodywork. The wheels do not rub anywhere even when tucked under the rear lips. As far as driving you could still catch the front fenders if our not carefull with your ride height. The V2 controller has 8 programed settings or you can set it manually everytime you get in, p to you! It's all tucked up in the trunk between the shock towers with a brackett I made to accommodate the V2 air ride control computer, ank and compressor. I made the existing ashtray fit the V2 controller and seconded the ashtray to accommodate an iPhone, lso integrated into the alpine head unit (see pictures).
I would be willing to take $13,500 without the Sparco seats. I will put the stock seats back in before it goes.
I HAVE TO WARN YOU! People will want to look at this car, t's weird but cool! I like cars and love how this car sits, ut it will attract attention!This is a very nice and clean car but not perfect. It has rock chips in the front, t's original paint. There is no rust in the body of this car. There is one spot on the car that the paint does not look stock. The drivers rocker has different texture to it, ot factory and if you wanted perfection it could be addressed and if I have time I will fix this. There is 3M rock guard around the bottom of the car except for a portion of the drivers rocker panel, ust in the black area. I've never worried about it because it doesn't look terrible just the perfectionist coming out in me, nyway full disclosure.
The car runs and drives exceptionally well. Not a harsh ride at all, irm like an expensive coil over setup. Handles very well. Very good gas mileage to go along with it!I love this car but I've always wanted a 911, o I'm selling this to get closer to that dream.
