1995 318ti for Sale

Hellrot over black interior (interior swapped from sand-grau)
Slicktop


Up for sale is the wife's 1995 318ti. We bought it from a family friend 4 years and 50k miles ago. Finally convinced her to get into an E91 RWD 6MT, but she didn't want to see until she hit 300k miles. Well, we have arrived so now it's time to move along down the road. This car has been dead reliable as you would expect. Frequent oil changes with Liqui Moly every ~5k or less. Fun as hell to drive since you can drive around at full throttle and not get into trouble (with an average recorded fuel economy of 30mpg). That said, this would be the perfect 318ti for an S/M5X swap. If we kept it that is what we would be doing with it. This car frustratingly gets far more attention than any of our other nicer vehicles. So if you aren't good with receiving compliments, this car isn't for you.

Pro's
Hellrot Red
Slicktop
Just broken in (300k miles)
M44 Head
LSD
Black interior Swap w/ euro steering wheel and heated sport seats
Many new parts (see attached list)
Koni STR.T struts with H&R springs
E36 325 brakes (larger front and rear)
X-Brace
New Exhaust (stock)
Subframe bushings & RTAB bushings replaced with OEM
SS brake lines
Wheel bearings all around
Valve cover gasket
Window regulators
Radiator, thermostat, waterpump
OFHG
So on and so forth. Basically name it and it’s been done.

Con's
Some surface rust; RR wheel arch & side skirts
Road rash on front bumper and core support panel
Failed clear coat on roof (currently poorly wrapped)
Tachometer is intermittent
Some oil leaks on the M42/M44. As mentioned, this is the perfect vehicle for an engine swap. Otherwise, I would have fixed it by now. If I were to keep it, I would swap it.

Asking $5,000. Oil was changed ~3k miles ago, and I will change it again before the next owner takes possession. I can take additional pictures as requested.
