Hello, I am selling my E30 318is with a healthy M42. Rare E30 since the 318is was only released for the year of 1991 and known as the "Poor Man's M3". Daily driven for 2 years and has never let me down, Driving feel or reliability wise. I have driven it back and forth from LA to SF over the past year 5+ times.
I am 3rd owner. 2nd owner had it from 1995-2016, where vehicle spent it's life in the Santa Cruz mountains. Original color is Diamantshwarz(Diamond Black). Paint is faded on roof, trunk, and hood, and a bit of the rear passenger quarter. Both front and rear bumpers are green and plastidipped black. I have original bumpers, but front is cracked and missing a piece, and rear is cracked and faded. Picture with green front bumper is how car looks without black plastidip on front and rear bumpers. I have a folder full of paperwork of services and parts from 1995-2018.
Work Done

Cons:
-ODO was stuck at 225404 from 2015-2018. It is now working fine, but the cluster tabs were snapped in the process. It is still secured. I'd guess it has about 280-290k miles right now on the motor, 230kish on the dash.
-Glovebox handle is missing. Still opens and closes fine.
-Still on it's original clutch, which just started slipping on the freeways past 80mph and at stomping acceleration.
-Dash cracked (usual for these cars)
-Driver seat has minor tear. Interior is clean otherwise
-Shifter is loose. I have parts for a Short Shifter Kit/rebuild I haven't put on yet
-Currently has both fog lights off the car. the lenses need to be glued on. They work otherwise-rear window is not tinted. was hit with a bb and didnt get it tinted. glass is otherwise original all around.-Airbag light on because 3 spoke steering wheel
-ABS light on because Speed sensor wire chewed through ($100)
-Catalytic Converter needs replacement to pass smog. It passed earlier this year though for registration renewal
-Muffler delete (LOUD)-might be due for brakes soonTHIS CAR IS NOT PERFECT AND DOES NEED SOME WORK, but its very close and a gorgeous car and amazing to drive.
