1991 BMW 3-Series 318is

*re-listing due to a non-paying bidder. Please do not bid if you aren't able to pay for the vehicle. Thank you. Up for sale is my 1991 BMW 318iS. I’ve owned this vehicle for over two years and have worked on it slowly. but unfortunately I no longer have the time or the means to finish the vehicle. My loss is your gain. When I bought the vehicle. it was in relatively good condition. The paint was a bit dull and it needed a detail. There were a few mechanical niggles that needed sorting as well. I polished the paint. bringing the original shine back. I cleaned up some of the interior’s stains. and sorted the mechanicals with new parts. I replaced some parts with new ones. water pump. the clutch slave cylinder. the alternator. the fuel pump. all of the belts. the thermostat. and the coolant. I also replaced the springs with H&R Sport springs with KYB shocks. The rear shocks were not installed yet. stock shocks are still on the vehicle; they will come in the trunk. MHW OZ wheels in silver. rubber coated in gold. new Kumho tires. I drove it for bit before having to park it again due to bearing noise. The car has been sitting since. The vehicle needs to be finished to be a reliable driver. Starting from the rear. it needs a new hub. for it is bent. Both CV axles have torn boots and either need to be replaced or resealed. The differential is leaking and needs to be sorted. The transmission shifts well. except when engaging fifth; the synchro is wearing and can grind if the revs aren’t matched. Power steering rack is leaking. so the belt to the pump has been removed. Both a refurbished rack and a new belt are included in the trunk. The engine runs well when warm. but hesitates to start when cold. Although. it starts right up on very cold nights. I’ve been told it could be the temperature sensor. I believe it has a small vacuum leak as well. The odometer reads 185k but it no longer works and the mileage is more. This is the non-sunroof model. The vehicle is being sold as-is. If you have any questions. please ask. Thank you. Here are some additional pictures:
