1993 BMW E30 316i Touring For Sale

K633 WTT - 1993 BMW 316i Lux E30 A BMW E30 Touring in Laguna green with the 1.6 M40 engine. It's done 132500 miles, has an MOT until March 2021, and I've got the full V5 logbook in my name. I purchased the car back in April as a lockdown project. Unlike quite a few others, this one was actually finished! Several months of work resulted in a thoroughly overhauled car that looks good and drives well. The extensive amount of work I've done to it is as follows: • Brakes - New disks, pads, and sensors all round. The calipers and carriers have been ground back and painted black. The car stops very well. • Wheels - 4 new Nexen Tyres and replacement BMW centre caps. • Suspension - At the front it's had 2 new track rod ends and drop links, and the anti-roll bar sanded and painted. At the rear there were new drop links and wheel bearings. • Engine - Extensive overhaul beginning with general service items. New oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs, rotor arm, and distributor cap. On inspection, the camshaft was found to be worn. To remedy, the oil spray bar was drilled and cleaned out and a replacement Febi camshaft was fitted, along with new rocker arms, cam seal and rocker cover gasket. Onto the cooling system, there was a new water pump and thermostat, and a coolant flush. New timing belt, belt rollers, and tensioner were fitted along with new power steering and alternator belts. An expensive Yuasa battery and a new exhaust backbox round off the parts list. Since it's been back on the road, I've driven it over 1300 miles around the Midlands and up to Scotland. It's performed flawlessly with no breakdowns and even got decent mpg! The handling is excellent with that lovely lightweight feeling and direct front end. Despite it being the lowly 316, I've found the engine responsive and willing to rev. Of course, I know the done thing is to swap it for an M50... Inside it's very plush, with the 3 spoke sports wheel, radio with aux, and working equipment. The electric windows work like a modern car, the manual sunroof goes back and up, and all the switchgear has a decent feel to it. The gear change and stalks have a very nice weight to their operation. So why am I moving it on? I really like my cars and couldn't help but buy a second lockdown project... after lockdown. There's only so much time in the day and I can only really focus on my new (very rusty) Porsche. Good points: • Very clean interior • Strong engine • Great handling • Nice colour • Recently, extensively serviced • 4 new tyres • Decent spec for a cheap old car Bad Points: • Scuffs and scratches around the car that reflect its 27 years on the road. • No service history (hence all the work done). • Fairly high mileage. I could go on about the car for hours but I appreciate you'll want to be more specific. Feel free to message me with any questions and I'll be happy to answer. Jack
