View Full Version : FS: 91 318is Alpine white No sunroof!

Hey guys,

I picked up a 91 318is during the winter. Turns out I have no use for it and I need the money for school!


Alpine white

M42B18 (1.8L DOHC 4 cylinder)

5 spd

When I bought it, it had been sitting for apparently a couple weeks but I think thats bull. It didn't run when I bought it because the starter was fried, so I went and picked one up, threw it in and it fired right up.

It has a pretty bad ass interior, it's sport cloth seats in dark blue with plaid inserts, there is 1 little rip in the back seat I believe, other then that it's clean.

It's a non airbag car, and has a M-tech 1 wheel.

Has an Alpine MP3 headunit with AUX input, it has a tilt feature and works awesome, it's wired into all 8 speakers of the premium stereo (8 speaker).

It only has 1 previous owner, the orignal owner gave it to his son, who sold it to me. It was serviced at the dealership up until 2000 I believe.

The wheels on it are 14" basket weaves with all the center caps and the wheels are in mint condition. The tires are some meaty snows that were purchased at the beginning of the winter and have probably 95% tread left.

The car has no sunroof, which from what I hear is pretty rare. I've had 3 E30's and all of which had a sunroof.

The underbody of the car is solid, it was undercoated again, up until 2000.

As with all 318is's it has a 4.10 LSD, It works.

The bad:

The front fenders need work, one has a dent and both have rust. They are easily replaceable though.

The 1st gear syncro grinds, I think it just needs a tranny fluid change. Same thing happened on my M50 swapped car and it cured it.

The exhaust has a leak before the muffler, BUT I have the exhaust that came off my other 318is that is clean and has no holes and will put it on if someone buys it.

It's been sitting for a while, so it most likely needs brake rotors and and pads.

Overall the car is a awesome base for a swap or project. Or if you even just want to clean it up a bit an drive it. When I bought it I was actually debating putting my M50 into it instead of my red 318is.

All of the work that needs to be done, I can do for extra if you buy it.


The car is dirty in the pictures, I took them right when I got it.






I'm looking for 1700$ but will take any reasonable offers into consideration. Also I know it's a long shot, but I'll take a trade any 98+ YZ RM or CR 125 or 250 dirt bike.

If you're interested PM me and we can set something up.

I don't think he's asking, he's telling.

Then why didn't you?

03-30-2009, 02:17 PM
I was already balls deep into my other car and the engine was ready to be dropped in. It would have been too much work. I would have had to pull the engine from the white car, put it in my red car, redo all I did on my red car to the white car. Just didn't seem to fun at the time, it being winter.

03-30-2009, 04:19 PM
Wow, I'd love to buy that car just for the interior!
Sell it separately?

hehehehe. Dude whatever you do, dont kill such a nice car.

Well, I'm not saying he should kill it.
But if other cars in need have more potential at actually becoming nicer and better; why not help them out..?
