    Default 84 318i 68k original miles

    I'm reluctantly putting my E30 up for sale. I bought this beautiful piece of machinery a few months back with the intent of keeping it for many years to come, but plans change. I **** just seeing it parked in the garage collecting dust and not getting driven, but its for good reason. See, this magnificent car only has 68,000 miles on it. YES THE ODOMETER WORKS! This is most of the reason why I don't drive it. These cars are very rare to find in this condition with low miles. The car has original paint as well!

    The interior is so perfect it's almost as though it has never been driven in. It has black vinyl comfort interior. There is not one scratch, rip, or tear anywhere. The car even comes with the original floor mats from 1984 that look almost new. The only downside to this car is that it's an automatic with manual windows, door locks, and sunroof. It has power mirrors though! The speakers have been upgraded to the premium style shelf speakers with rockford fosgate components. The speakers in the kick panels are rockford's as well.

    Now onto the exterior. This car started it's life as a plain jane delphin metallic 318i with diving board bumpers ugly 17 inch wheels and mushy suspension. The car has been converted to euro bumpers, euro grill's, smoked euro depo similes with crosshairs, and a full zender ground effects kit. I know, not as prestigious as the Mtech1 kit but I think it looks really good. The kit has been matched in delphin metallic. It is an authentic kit. Not fiberglass garbage.

    The car is sitting on Remotec type B's that measure in at 16x9 squared. Now you might be telling yourself, those look like Borbet knock offs. From what I've read Remotec sold this design to Borbet along with the type A design. So these wheels are even more rare than Borbets. They are wrapped in 195/40's that are basically brand new.

    The suspension has been refreshed up front with new lemforder control arms, sway bar endlinks, wheels hubs, and tie rods. The front control arm bushings are from turner motorsports and came assembled with powerflex 95a urethane. The car is sitting on godspeed coilovers. The ride is very nice especially with how low the car is. I have zero complaints about them.

    With all this being said I'm asking $10,000 obo for the car. Yes I know it's a 318i with an M10 and an automatic transmission. Please keep your negative comments to yourself. They can be swapped to a manual for $500 or less. My name is Brandon and you can reach me at 425 387 1516. Again, the price is obo, but please no crazy low ball offers. I dare you to find one in this condition with the same miles for less money.

    Thanks for looking

    I stopped looking, with a CL search tool, that took like 4 minutes
    you can say that they have more miles, but then you say that you can swap the transmission, so if you're not concerned with changing things then why not swap out the 1.8 motor, transmission, wheels, etc. low miles isn't even a consideration when I buy a car.

    All those cars are piles of shit except the wagon, the s52 swapped one and the m50 swapped one. Your argument is invalid. Move along. Thanks

    Agree with all of this. Oh well he will lower the price if he actually wants to sell it.

    Does anyone know the meaning of OR BEST OFFER? I’m clearly not expecting to get 10k for the car.

    Car is super clean man and the mods so far are on point, but don't get so mad when people give you feedback as to why you haven't got interest. You know it's a high price for the car. OBO or not. If you're willing to wait I'm sure it'll sell but its not likely to sell quickly and definitely not on here. I can think of at least 3 e30s locally cleaner than this for sale and they're manual. That said, they're asking more and they're 325s. So chill out and give it some time. Would also recommend putting your speaker grills back on.
