1994 BMW 3-Series Additional Info:

1994 BMW E36 318IS M42 1.8L 2 Door Calypso Red Coupe, with only 120600 miles. I am the 2nd owner, purchased in 2001, was daily car till 2010. Parting with this car is difficult as it was my first German engineered sports car. The car starts and runs great, it is a blast to drive around town and on the highway on nice days. I really will miss this car, just time to move on and sell to another BMW enthusiast.
Starting in 2011, I began to update the car with idea to improve the suspension and handling, it quickly became a fun project car. The car has all new weather stripping (doors, windows, trunk, hood and new insulation under engine hood. All id badges, hood, trunk and wheel emblems are new (BMW Original). I replaced all door handles, trim and door frame electric strikes and catches. The windshield crowl was replaced. The front head lights are clear halos with clear turn signals along with the replacing the rear tail light with clear units (no amber). New rotors and brake pads (less than 500miles on them). Replaced the power steering unit and all power steering lines (BMW Original). Removed and replaced the interior roof ceiling with new liner cover and padding. Car was repainted in Aug 2016, original Calypso Red and added M3 aerodynamic and trim kits on the car that included front/rear bumpers, side skirts, mirrors and front nose with black kidney grills. Came out looking great. Need to note, only the outer surface of the car was sanded and painted, decided not to do any inner door panel frames/jambs or trunk inner lid frames. Updated all the suspension (includes trailing arm bushings and linkage), tires, wheels and added performance exhaust, intake and ignition that includes a performance chip. Updated speakers, stereo and added some bass! The car has been garaged since 2016 after the new paint job.
Key updates:
  • Sport Edition A9 16"Bright Satin Wheels
  • ToyoProxes R1R 225/45ZR16 89W Tires - Directional

Overall condition of the car: Very GoodAC and Heater in working orderAll electrical windows, powered moonroof and interlocks work properlyHeadlights, fog lights, tail lights, turn signals and hazards work properlyCruise control, heated seats, power mirrors and horn all work properly!There are no oil leaks visible or presentEngine cooling external cooling fan worksInterior is in excellent condition (1 minor seat crack on lower cushion of driver seat & one piece missing in driver door panel from seat belt clasp.
Overall opportunities to improve the vehicleThere are no oil leaks, however, if I were to retain the car I would change the rear main seal and rebuild the clutch (5 speed manual) - due to age and miles there is play in the gears with attention to reverse when the car has been running for an extended period of time. The ABS light does come on but infrequent, and the airbag light is on due to the missing front drivers airbag. The inner door panels do have areas of where the material coming away from the actual door panel mold. The glass has no cracks, yet it is weathered and aged - (front window and each door glass could be replaced but not needed). There is a minor exhaust leak at the union for the cat and exhaust pipe - could be a very low cost update from an exhaust shop.
Included in the purchase will be (4) original 15" Bottle Cap wheels with tires (for winter driving). Spare tire with jack and full tool kit are with the car. All season mats (BMW Originals). The original steering wheel (with complete airbag - non deployed) will also be included in the purchase of the car. The owners manual is complete along with 3 sets of keys and a valet key. I will also include a Code Reader for the computer and two Service Manuals specific to the series and year of the car.
