So this followed me home today ... I couldn't pass it up. For about the cost of about 10 cases of non-premium beer, this is what I have ...

1991 318is, has about 290K, runs, but needs a clutch. Really nice black interior (I mean really nice, no rips or tears) heated sport seats, rear ski bag, trunk carpet is perfect, full tool kit, Has a new exhaust and a few other bits. The car sat for at least 2 years, underside is really clean. Driver's side fender has some rust, same with just below the battery area in the trunk. The rest of the car is remarkably clean, with original paint.

Not sure what to do with it yet ...(I have a 318is beater, 325i Touring) but just couldn't leave it sitting in the yard for the price I paid. Looks like it will sit in my driveway for now.

Yes it does ....
This car won't be a track car (not by me anyway) I have a 240Z for track days.
Right now I'm thinking that this interior will end up in my 318is winter car (unless you can convince me that it shouldn't)

I know I have a problem. I'll admit that. In fact, I'd love to have the fronts too for their heat. Right now, I swap in a cloth winter interior; sport, heated, ski pass rear with headrests, but thats such a waste of time. That rear seat is such a unicorn to me. I hear about them, but can never score one. A guy on R3v offered me one for $300, which I laughed at. I'm in need, but my habit isn't at that level. I don't know what I could offer you, besides my back seat in return. It would still match, it just wouldn't have the ski pass, but it has Mtechnic seat badges in it. I don't know how attached to having a ski pass you are. I wouldn't need the bag as I already have one. I dunno, if you're interested in selling/trading, I could offer misc parts in return along with my regular back seat (Map light rear view mirror, whatever) I'll PM you my parts bin, haha.

It's just uncommon in the 318is perforated black vinyl. You can find them in cloth and pleather/leather anywhere. It's that perforated black one that has alluded me for the last two years. Goddamn unicorns I tell you!!!

I'm alive and well ... just been a busy summer. I've spent a lot of time travelling (mostly to vintage races all across North America) I also belong to 4 car clubs, so things get hectic with those as well.

I've decided to pull some parts off the E30 and sell off what's left. Interior is out of it; I'm taking the wheels, but can provide a few sh1tty bottle caps to keep it as a roller. I'm trying to keep it as intact as possible, and to keep it a running car for people to look at. There's still a few little bits that I will remove for my winter beater.

If you're looking for a clean car to build a track monster, this is perfect. If you have a really rusty POS that you're working on for the street, stop welding and buy this one.

This e30 makes 10 cars in my possession at the moment. I keep 9 of them here at the house, 6 are insured and live driving cars. I guess I'm getting to the fact that driveway space is a premium, and I don't want to piss off the nieghbours. I'm open to offers ... the sooner it goes, the better.

Cheers,

The car's sold - picked up yesterday.
The new owner is going to restore it back to a road car using the 2 POS's he's been working on and trying to save.

I'd been looking for a pass thru black perforated seat for a while too. I have an absolutely 100% mint non pass-through. While I want the pass-through, I can't accept replacing the one I have with something that is not perfect, which I've yet to find. :( Unicorn indeed.

The ski pass back seat is now in my winter car and it is in perfect condition, indeed a unicorn.

I'm open to cash + trade for a perfect regular back seat ...my winter car really doesn't deserve such a rare feature.

PM me if interested ... (you're not the only one looking for this type of back seat)

I saw it yesterday in person - you wouldn't be disappointed. Looks brand new.
