Hey guys. Just testing the waters. Don't think I can justify all the cars in the driveway right now; so I'm checking the interest on this one...

the car is what it is; nothing special, nothing fancy; just good fuel efficient transportation. Been very reliable since I've owned it.

1994 318is. 330,xxx km's. 1.8l engine (M42) 5 speed 3.45 LSD *th-up*
Everything on the car works - windows, mirrors, sunroof, A/C etc. etc. Madriera metallic, gray cloth interior, m3 rep. mirrors, may or may not come with magnaflow stainless muffler, new clutch approx. 15,000 k ago,new battery last year, 15" bottlecaps with good Dunlop rubber, new plugs last year, syn. oil change every 6,000 km's.

Has some cosmetic issues (rust, peeling paint) but otherwise fair shape

Asking $2000 O.B.O

Thanks for looking! :D

this is the only one I could find on the computer. It was taken before the m3 mirrors were put on.


if the weather co-operates, I'll try & get a few more tomorrow.

pics as promised. please note: projector headlights & sirius radio not included. Cd player will be swapped out with an Alpine unit I have in the garage.


Also forgot to add: replaced front brakes last year with cross-drilled rotors & PBR pads. New intake boot a month ago as well. Sorry it's not cleaned... maid's on holidays! ;) It does clean up pretty good, but as mentioned, it does need some TLC.

What do you think? Priced reasonably?

I've been watching a coolant leak for the past few days, trying to find out where it's going. Today I got a chance to crawl under it & take a better look. Can't tell exactly where it's coming from, but there's drips in a few different spots - looks like it's coming from either the front of the motor under the thermostat housing, or someplace along the side. I would guess a leaking gasket, or possibly the housing cracked. I'll need to take some stuff apart to see better where it's coming from.

The car is still running fine, and thus far has no overheating issues; but it's losing about 1/4 litre of coolant on a 120 km trip.

So if anyone is interested in the car as it sits, feel free to make what you would think is a fair offer. I need a break from fixing cars for awhile after my 325 debacle; and am not really in the mood to deal with this right now.

Any takers? Could make a good parts car, or be a good shell for a swap! Or figure out the leak & drive it for a steal!

thanks for the offers guys! I'm thinking I'd like to see $1000 for the car as it sits. If I get some time this week I'm gonna try & find the source of the coolant leak & that will give the prospective buyer a better idea of what they're getting into. Or if it's something simple to fix then I'll just fix it & it becomes an even better deal!

bump for end of week. Would really like to see this gone before december...

Officially for sale now! First person with $1000 can take it away!

If I can track down the coolant leak & band-aid it quickly; I will be more than happy to meet serious people half way as I'm located a ways east of Toronto.

okay guys... here's the deal. I've had a situation come up where I am not going to have time to look at this car; and need it out of the driveway asap. Having said that; I am willing to make someone what I think is a very good deal on this car if they are willing to make the trip to come get it as-is; where is...

I appologize to anyone who was in previous contact; but I am simply not going to have any time to be looking at this car; or funds to repair it.

PM me for price & any other questions.

Yeah, I know that I will kick myself later for selling it; but situations being what they are; I just didn't have the time or funds to put into the car.

Hope it treats you well!
