Up for sale or trade is my 1991 bmw 318is e30. The car has a CA bar legal 2.5 m50 engine from an e36 3 series. True Dual exhaust all the way back (Tips are black for a sleeper look). Odometer stopped at 151k. Swap has about 8k on it. Chassis is about 190k? 5 speed manual. IE front strut bar. 5 lug conversion. HD shocks. All electricals work inside. Headunit is xm satellite ready. Has an ipod connection that was nicely done to connect in the glove box (so its safe from theives and looks clean in there, You can changes songs thought the head unit instead of you fumbling with the ipod while driving). Bigger brakes all the way around. Massive M3 brakes, hub, caliper, control arms up front. Z3 rear conversion. Brand new rear wheel bearings and brakes all the way around. 2.93LSD diff (had a 4:11 in it before which made the car very peppy on the streets but not so good on the highway, the car is now geared for highway driving. 80mph ~ 2k rpm). Bigger sway bar up front (from cabrio e30). White exterior, leather black interior. power window and locks. No rust at all. 17x7.5" DS1 e36 m3 rims all the way around (the words BMW MOTORSPORT on them). Tires are 235/45/17 and have 70% life. A/C is hooked up but needs to be charged. Dome light, trunk light and license plate lights are now LEDs.Good daily driver or project car. Its not perfect, does need little things here and there. I love the car but I have bigger plans for another e30. Ill also be throwing in extra parts such as a better driveshaft and most of the m20 lightweight flywheel conversion parts. I know Im forgetting stuff done to the car but ask and ill awnser any questions you have. . Come test drive it but be sure you have cash in hand. No cash, no test drive. No tire kickers. No low ballers. Please do not waste my time or yours. Its already priced very cheap. $3000 and its yours.

OR:

TRADE me your stock late model e30 plus cash. MUST BE plastic bumper-ed and manual. No convertibles. I prefer a 325is with cruise control and power sunroof however I will consider 318is and other e30s that dont have those options. Blown motor or no motor is ok however running and stock is a big plus. Looking for a clean body basically to put a bigger motor into. No DMV penalties. If you have a calypso red e30 that a super super plus. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GOT!

No!

I 'm sorry, I'm not thread crapping but thats someone else's car build and won't ever satisfy you as much as a build you do for yourself. Unless youre one of those guys who likes to buy ready to drive cars?, then why not just buy an e36.

+1 on your own build. Sheesh, if it had a BAR cert S52 OBD1 for that price I'm there. M50 turbo'ed, I'm there; but an M50 stock...blah. I'll continue working on my stroker.

GLWS...

I agree, I tried to call Matt to get more information on who did the build and 5 lug swap but got voice mail. It seems like there are $3000 of parts here alone if you parted the car out. But with it being BAR approved it has potential as a driver. If I had the money I would seriously chase this one. I like that he left the 318 on it, a real sleeper. GLWS

Cheers,

Jim
