1991 BMW 318is
151k documented miles on working odometer
4 cylinder 1.8 m42
good on gas and runs very strong
5 speed with strong clutch
heat and AC work
What it will need, but does not affect daily driving:
right front ABS sensor near the tire is frayed. not necessary for braking but ABS is disabled.
small front oil leak developed near the bottom - could be the timing case cover or the crank seal leaking again.
The reason I am selling this car is because I own three BMWs. I would like to use the money to fund my project car.
The car has an excellent maintenance history with over $20k in documented records dating back to the ORIGINAL owner. I have ALL the paperwork. I understand that this is a premium price, but the car reflects that. A well maintanted e30 318is with all maintenance logs from the original owner is not common. Please no low ballers, as if you feel you can find a car just as clean for less, feel free to pursue that one instead.
The car has been my daily driver. Here is a list of the recent maintenance done at 150k to ensure reliablility. All parts are BMW OEM parts.

new fuel filter
new fan clutch
new water pump
new upper and lower radiator hoses

new spark plugs
new valve cover gasket

The body is straight with a small nickle sized dent on the hood (see pics) The rear right taillight area has paint oxidation and clear
coat peeling. (see pics) Other than that, the car shines up well.
Other recent maintenance done by the previous owner has been wheel bearings, master and slave cylinders for the clutch system, and new oem muffler. No rust and a true daily driver ready to go.
