she looks amazing and i'm going to check it out this week hopefully...if my pops likes it then it'll be on my driveway
*fingers crossed*

its for $6900 and i've got $5500 to play with, so whatever the offer comes down to my dad will pitch in the rest...


BTW its a 1992 318IS with 174K ....i know 1992's 318IS's have that subframe problem, but i wont be pushing the car hard and to its limits :rolleyes: so i guess i dont have to worry

Someone needs to tell the owner to wash his rims once in a while... or at least when taking a pic to sell it :) Otherwise, looks good... I like that colour.

You WILL push it, trust me. 318's rely on revs to keep up with traffic.

That's why Autotechnica always shifts at 5,000 RPM :)

Good luck, nice color!

GET IT MAN!!If you pick that baby up will cruise around B TOWN PIMPIN IT UP!!
lol, looks nice and clean from the pic, but you gotta check it out in preson, and just remember one thing, if you will take ANY advice from me, take THIS: DO NOT RUSH, there will ALWAYS be BM's for sale, i rushed into every car i bought and like a month later i found a better price/car/condition, so just make sure that it really appeals to you!

I should have looked closer the first time. Probably a good idea to check it out in person. Still like the colour though ;)

I wouldnt get it if I were you. Rust on a car is like cancer.

09-08-2003, 07:23 PM
yea i see the rust and now im questioning...as for seeing the car...i would never buy a car without seeing it in person and driving it fora good 5 minutes

as for rushing i have a lot more options thas jus one of the 318IS's i've searched for if i dont like that then theres this one

Patience is the key, and you always feel better afterwards that you waited for your new baby.

and everyone is right. Lots of rust is usually too hard to repair. You fix it, but it always comes back.

WOW, where are you finding these cars, maybe its just my monitor, but the color on these cars looks AMAZING!!

hahah its mostly all those refs in turner that chill at south hall.....all they do is sit outside flare music in their ugly ass cars and think that a girl will jus fly into their arms....the disgraceful thing is (yes they are a disgrace to desi's....i'd be ashamed to even talk to one of those south hall freaks) they take their car and with music as loud as it can get, run laps around the parking lot...my friend was bored one day so he called it the "Bombay Run" and "Delhi Run" :D

I like 318s. The amount of gas and insurance money it saves me is phenomenal. Especially since I drive every day in the city.

i want a lot of power out of my ride but i also need a ride as soon as possible because of the hassles (we only have a van that me and my dad share right now) when it comes to getting around...right now im just worried about getting a ride, not how much power i can punch out of it

"ONCE" i get the ride im gonna add a 8-10 psi turbo, BOV, intercooler, dual exhaust, air ride and teh whole what not for engine internals....but i need a ride first i cant worry about power without anything to drive

make sense?

oh BTW Jon...325...sure....find me a nice one under $6500 and not a dealership (i prefer private sales)
:P
