Description for BMW 3-Series 1991

REDUCED PRICE! BMW E30 1991 Convertible with M42 Twin Cam 134HP Engine & 5 speed stick.

Complete with Factory Owners Manuals, Receipts & repair schedule from our 4-year restoration. Original California Car from 1st purchase to now means NO RUST AT ALL!!

This 318i weighs 121 Pounds LESS than my 1990 (M20) 325i, and 34 Horsepower less BUT ALSO gets MPG average 24/26!! It has a GREAT Power/Weight Ratio!!

EASILY Passed Calif Smog April 2017; Runs REAL Clean! CLEAN, CLEAR and Current CALIFORNIA TITLE

This Odometer Works & Mileage is Correct…Chronic on E30 is Odometer Failure giving False Mileage to the buyer. This car's true mileage is 226,950, that is Less than 9,000 a year in its 26 years

NOW the DOWN SIDE: LOOK at PHOTOS showing the few minor remaining problems. Remember the car is 26 years old and in very good condition for the age. Rear Convertible Window is "Hazy/Cloudy", BUT the TOP is in Good Condition. Dash has the usual age cracks (a new Dash Cap on E-Bay cost you $99.00). Front bumper plastic has been hit & is damaged @ license plate (See Photos). See the body dents & scratches shown in Photos. Chrome on Factory Wheels has started to peel; The Worst one is pictured. It is harder now to find performance 14" tires….a change to 16's or 17's wheels will needed in future, being as Quality 14" tires are becoming unavailable.

This was restored by a Professional auto guy for his daughter to go to school with. (This was not the 1st E30 he has done) It's a Reliable, Quality, Clean Car ready to GO!
