09-27-2010, 11:40 PM

As much as it hurts me to do this, up for sale is my 1991 318iS Coupe.
The car has been maintained and cared greatly by a mature driver, non smoker owner for the last 4.5 years.
The car has always been treated and driven with care.

The E30 coupe is a m50 swap.
It was performed by Charlie and the boys at Bimmersport, 2 years ago. Everything else was done by a Technician at BMW of Mississauga.
This is a Canadian car, which has been upgraded using many OEM BMW components. I have a pile of receipts from the Dealership.
