Up for sale is a nice 1985 BMW 318i (E30) 1 Owner. The original owner contacted us to purchase this vehicle because he was no longer able to drive to due to an illness. He purchased the car from Otto’s BMW in West Chester PA in 1985 and had it serviced there until 1998 when they no longer were able to service it due to the age. After that the vehicle was regularly serviced at a BMW specialty shop. (Those receipts come with purchase) Overall the vehicle was maliciously maintained by the owner from 1985 until he stopped driving it in late 2016. This car has been loved and it shows.

There’s just too much to list on all the work that was done so I’ll only cover the most recent and major repairs. The engine, transmission, harness, water pump, cooling system and clutch kit were replaced at 191k. (was replaced with a used engine with less the 80k on it. So the current engine has around 100-110k miles) When we purchased the vehicle we wanted to make it sure it was road worthy and safe so we had a local shop replace the battery, fuel lines, brakes, rotors, belts and a change of fluids. The vehicle now runs and drives awesome! The body has around 235k miles on it but the paint still shines great. The interior is also in decent shape considering the age of the car. The driver’s side front seat has a small tear in it, however the rear seat is immaculate. All the electronics on the inside seem to work. (Power windows, Hand cranked sunroof, heat/ac, radio) All 4 tires have really good tread and vehicle comes with 2 additional rims and tires (winter tires for rear)

We want you to bid with confidence and our goal is to be totally transparent with you. The vehicle needs or is going to need the following (known issues) : There are some rust spots that do need to be addressed. Front Struts (Not noticeable when driving it but show signs of wear) Odometer is not moving (miles) Speedometer/Tach works fine

Overall this is a great example of a 1 owner BMW E30 from the 1980s. It would make a great daily driver or restoration project. It drives great and you won’t be disappointed.
