1991 BMW 3-SeriesDetails: Link to photo album here: IMAGES
1991 318 IS E30, lick top (no sunroof)
Red exterior, an interior.
Mileage: approx 142,000 on the body, ow 100's on engine. Approx 2K on engine overhaul detailed below.
Car just had a major overhaul this year.
-1995 M3 Engine and 5 speed transmission were professionally swapped in
-Brakes were replaced all around, ew calipers, ads, nd stainless lines, ac assist conversion with new booster.
-Suspension reworked- added front sway bar, &R lowering springs, ew control arms and bushings in the front.
-Complete new exhaust built for it- Stainless 3" with V band for quick removal.
-Aforementioned work (engine, rakes, uspension upgrade) has approx 2k miles since being done.
No rust and very straight original panels, few small parking lot door dings which could be removed with paintless dent removal if you want it to be perfect. But the paint is beginning to show signs of wear where the clear coat is fading away in spots. The most affected areas are hood and both door- roof is good. No rust.
Seats do show signs of wear and dash has some cracks from the sun. looks like a 1991 that has been well cared for.
-1995 M3 engine "S50B30" - All new OEM engine gasket set
-reworked head, ew OEM head gasket
-S52 headers to facilitate easier swap
-Factory 95 M3 harness, 13 "Red label" ecu
-Full 3" Stainless TIG welded exhaust, o cats, wo mufflers. Sounds beautiful.
-Vacuum brake conversoin, rand new brake calipers, ads, tainless lines front and rear.
-5 Speed manual trans w/ short shift kit
-H&R front sway bar
-New factory 95 M3 clutch
-Short shift kit
-New reman power steering rack
Overall a great running and driving car. Been using as a daily commuter and it is very fun to drive. Feels like it should have been from the factory. Aside from the intake and exhaust appears to have been factory with this engine. Factory unmodified wiring harness and ecu, o splicing.
The issues I know of with the car are as follows:
-Normal wear and tear, igns of age
-The brake bias is a bit off. May just need more bleeding but the car pulls to one side when braking. As mentioned above all calipers and lines are brand new.
-General paint condition: Some cracking clear coat and evidence of overzealous detailing on the pass. door. Looks like maybe the edge of a buffer pad burned the paint a little. Pictured in album
-With the axle ratio of the rear diff it makes for an amazing autocross car but not so great above speeds of 70+ for commuting as rpm at 70 MPH is around 4000
A member emailed me asking if all the panels are original. I have taken pictures of the original VIN tags with the BMW seal on them and uploaded to the photobucket album. Every body panel still has the original tag- this includes, oth quarter panels, oth doors, oth front fenders, he hoo, nd the trunk.
