Unhappy 1996 BMW 3-Series Sedan E36 318i

I am selling my 1996 BMW 318i 270000 km, Automatic tran., for $2200 AS IS (Rebuilt Title - Vandalism, no accidents in carproof and me personally). Full beige leather interior (replaced myself because it was all cloth) , all power options.

I had this car for almost 2 years and since 242500 km. Car runs perfectly, great on gas for daily driver. My personal record 700 km on tank in city/hwy enviroment, 9-10 L per 100 km my avarege unless you pushing it.

Work I done on the car:

- brand new paint job when I bought it
- valve gasket resealed
- front struts brand new (Monroe) , replaced in Dec 2009
- brand new inner and outer tierods, replaced in Dec 2009
- brand new 2 O2 sensors (318i has 2 of them: still have receipt form BMW dealer), replaced July 2010
- DEPO HID headlights (30W balast, 6000k bulb)
- depo clear corners
- brand new fuel filter, replcaed July 2010
- brand new spark plug wires, replaced July 2010
-spark plugs repalced in Oct 2009 (NGK)
- cabin air filter replaced Jan 2009
- clear tail lights (euro style)
- SET of 17 ' M3 rims staggered (5 of them wiht full spare in the trunk)
- pioneer mp3 player with AUX
- brand new brakes all around (drilled/ventilated on the front and solid on the rear) pads and rotors , replaced Dec 2009
- ebay muffler, replaed July 2010 (too loud for me)
- custom wired fog lights
- new bolt joint (driver side), replaced before I bought it, Oct 2008
- remote center locking system (ebay)
- 8000k on the rear tires, and brand new spare one
- I have heated seats installed in the car and buttons but never wired them together (this model not prewired for it, but its a project for you)
- oil changes done every 3000 km, with regular 10-30w oil (not syntatic)
- both belts changed in Dec 2009
- replaced front right caliper (jammed on me, May 2009)
- brand new starter, replaced Jan 2009
- brand new battery , replaced Jan 2009

Bad things in the car:

- Rebuilt title, but no accedents on the car as far the carproof told me (rebuilt title due vandalism, car was scratched, broken windows etc.)
- key slipes throught in the ignition when you turn (minor)
- paint starts pealing on the bumper (minor)
- rear light bulbs have bad contact and may not work sometime (need to adjust with your hands)
- minor rust on doors and trunk (barely can see it, starts)
- minor rust on front passenger fender
- front tires need to be replaced for the next summer, worn out due the wrong alighment for small winter tires (too wide for the front, need 215/45/17 instead of 225/45/17)
- few tiny dents from door on the parking lots
- driver side rear hand brakes does not work (rusted out on me)
- oil pan gasket leaks oil (one, two drops a day)
- air conditioner does not work , has a hole in the radiator
