1993 318i - $2000

here's the story, Aunt had this car leased since 1993. and has been original owner since new. 2004 developed a major oil leak which she could not diagnose. Sat in her garage where it was parked every year since brand new never ever parked outside until I owned it last year october i think. Got it diagnosed as front mail seal. Got that done then the oil seal going to the filter housing sprung a leak after the first leak was fixed, got that one fixed and then after running the car it spun a bearing after my aunt kept driving the car and filling oil. So basically got a used motor, swapped it in and its been running like a top ever since.

So its cashmere beige on black cloth with second set of cloth interior as a spare. second set of factory 318i wheels with all seasons and factory hubcaps for winters. It has a sunroof other than that I think its got the normal bmw standard features I dont think it has any options. I added an mp3 player if you want it, little spot of rust on trunk lid

1-thermostat, doesnt over heat but also doesnt get warm
2-drivers front window regulator
3-passenger rear wheel bearing(just noisy, car drives ok, may be affecting mileage?)
