I have no choice but to sell my baby. My wife and I are planning a second baby, so we need more room. I am only going to be considering serious enquires. No time to waste. I need to sell ASAP. The car was just E-tested today, no problems found. It passed with flying colours. There is nothing wrong with it mechanically. I had my mechanic check it and Charlie checked it about a month ago. Please NO LOW BALLERS!
I have spent a lot of time and money on keeping it in good shape body and mechnically. Car is black on black. The body has about 250+k on it. However, there is small rust starting to form. Nothing that needs big body work. The car has never been winter driven except for this past winter.

First the new parts:
Both front Ball joints
A/C lines

Engine upgrades:
95 M50 engine
95 325i rad, power steering lines, air intake box
Turnermotorsports chip

Exhaust and fly-wheel upgrade:
Turnermotorsports light weight-fly wheel
Raven performance exhaust (custom) dual chrome tips W/resinator

Suspension upgrade:
Bilstein coilover kit PSS
Ireland Engrineering RSM
Front strut brace

Brakes upgrade:
Brembo cross dilled rotors all around
Hawk performance plus brake pads all around

Wheels and tire upgrade:
18" M-Parallels wheels
225 35 18 Fuzion ZRi tires
Also have 15" stock wheels W/BMW covers

Exterior upgrade:
Reiger bumper lip
Euro headlights with angel eyes and 5800k McCulloch HID
Smoked lights all around
M3 Mirrors
///M side mouldings

Interior upgrade:
Chrome instrument cluster rings
Chrome gear box surround
Lighted ///M shift knob

Speakers and amps upgrade:
Kenwood KDC-X811 deck
Infiniti Kappa speakers (front and back)
3 Fosgate amps (1 for front, 1 for rear and 1 for sub)
JL Audio W6 sub in 1 cf. box
Fosgate sub control by driver seat

Spare parts:
Black crystal clear foglights (one has a broken glass)
OEM wheels with covers
Car cover
OEM speakers and deck

The motor swap and alignment was done by Raven motorsports.
A/C lines and ball joints installed by Charlie.

Thanks,
Steve

Sorry to hear that you are sellin the car Steve, it is a really nice car! Saw it in person, and man what a mean sounding exhaust... If you decide to part, let me know about your rims and lights! Oh and by the way Bump!!

I want to say I'm sorry to see the car go, but you're doing the right thing. A second child is much more important. I hope she gets a good owner. Beautiful car, saw it in person... well taken care of.

good luck with the sale.

That's cool.. Man, I can't imagine the day I have to give up my E36... Must suck. But then again, what the hell do I know about families and babies? ;D

Good luck with the sale!!

p.s. take better pics!! gotta show off the mirror-like potential of that color...

Just wanted to ask since you may actualy Know!

the motor swap. mounts/ custom welded or plops right in?
I hear the 318is trans mounts right up to the 325 motor, anyproblem$?
ballpark please the # of hours they charged for the swap..

I also hear/read that the 325 motor is about 60/70pounds more then the
318 motor.
honestly did you feel any front end difference around your 1st few turns?
didn't think so.

nice car good luck on the sale *th-up*

Im really not trying to lowball, i think this car is worth what you're asking for it, its just a little more than i want to spend for the time being.

if you part out some of the mods and the price comes down a bit, we'll talk:)

im interested in most cars that go for sale on this board... however, many of the prices are inflated severly... i guess that is to compensate for the lowball offers. nice car... g luck with the sale
