1993 318i Touring
1.8 M40 engine
Grey Velour interior
I bought the car in feb 2016 at 130k miles, since then i have replaced:
brake and fuel lines front and rear
Front wheel bearing
Rear subframe bushes
All 4 road springs
Power steering rack
Front wishbone bushes
Inner and outer steering rod ends
Timing belt, tensioner and water pump at 138k miles
Replaced a front wing and tailgate for better condition ones
Had 2 new front tyres and a spare fitted
I also replaced various bits of internal and external trim from ones i had in stock.
I used the car to run to work for a year after i bought it, it never let me down and i would trust it to do the same still. It also did a few trips to scotland and all over wales. I then garaged it and used it as a second car to my E34 but havent used it in the last year or so and it seems a shame to just have it sitting in the garage.
It has a full set of 15 inch BBS, including spare, with centrecaps. The tailgate is in good condition, which is rare for a touring.
The bad points are as follows:
The paintwork is not concours but from 10 yards looks fine, a full respray would make it into a very nice car. There are a few scabs of rust on the door edges that would need treating and the usual hole in the rear valance near the towing eye which i never got round to sorting. The headlining is sagging slightly over the boot area. The base of the drivers seat cover is worn though as can be seen in the photos. There is a slight weep from one of the PAS unions which requires a new crush washer. Im not the best at keeping receipts, but there is some history and old mots in the paperwork.
The car drives as well as any E30 I've owned and the shell is solid, with only a few cosmetic issues in the paint letting it down. I will be sad to see it go but i am not in a rush to sell as i have space to dry store it. I can provide more pictures on request.
The car is currently sorn with no MOT and priced accordingly.
