1990 BMW E30 318i manual m42b18 318is engine converted SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
I have owned this car since September 2015 and have driven it daily since. It has been a pleasure to own and to drive and always gets attention.

I always intended on fitting an m42 engine as I wasn’t keen on the original m40b18 engine with it being belt driven and running off a distributor and rotor. The car now benefits from an m42b18 1991 e30 318is engine. This has improved performance massively and is really smooth and drives like a modern car. There are only light modifications to the engine which include upgraded m50 coil on plug coil packs removing the need for HT Leads. New bosch Mustang injectors (4 pintle giving a better spray pattern) and a panel air filter in the original air box.

The bodywork is great, since I bought the car I have had the following bodywork done; both front wings replaced with new panels, rear inner and outer arches replaced, rear valance repaired, syls replaced, wing mirrors resprayed, bumpers resprayed and two plates welded under the rear seats. The car is now solid and looks great.

The car is running H&R sport lowering springs (35mm drop) with ta technics shorter front shock absorbers, mondeo ARB Drop links (two ball joints rather than a rubber bush), both lower arms were replaced with new bushes about a year ago, front brakes were refreshed around a year ago with new hoses, aluminium strut brace is also fitted.

I have fitted an e46 purple tag reconditioned steering rack with new e46 inner rods and new e36 outer rods and new custom power steering hoses from BM Conversions the steering feels amazing (3 turns from lock to lock instead of 4) it feels like driving a modern car.

The wheels are in good condition, I’m not sure if the brand but they are 16x8 bbs replicas and polish up really well. They all have Yokohama parada tyres with around 5mm tread.

The interior is standard grey velour and is in good condition and is still presentable, there are the usual cracks on the dash that never bothered me. The stereo is a pioneer stereo with Bluetooth streaming and phone connection.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, genuine reason for sale, I don’t want to but a second baby on the way means I need a bigger car!
