Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    FS: 1984 318i in San Diego, CA

    Hi all, my well taken after BMW had started knocking last February, so this will be a project car. It can drive, but not far.

    Asking price: $1,200 USD

    I've put a lot of time and decent amount of money into the car, so here are the highlights, new parts and upgrades:

    California car with BLUE PLATES!
    (since '84)
    Never been in any accidents
    Clean Title

    3.91 Limited Slip Differential (lsd)
    HR/bilstein sport shocks and lowered springs
    New strut mounts all around
    New ball joints on drivers side, new control arm (with ball joints) on right
    Poly urethane rear subframe bushings and control arm bushings
    Stainless steel braided brake lines
    z4 short shifter
    e46 m3 steering rack

    New pioneer bluetooth head unit
    New Pioneer speakers (system sounds really great)
    Sport Seats
    Thule roof rack

    Xenon bi 4800k headlights
    Electric windows
    Cruise control works
    Almost crack free dash (pictured is one of two small imperfections)
    New BMW 318i feet mats
    Sun roof (this is the coolest part)
    Pop out rear windows
    Retractable radio antenna still fully functional
    Wiper fluid and squirter still work

    New within the last 10k miles:
    AFM (factory set, haven't touched it)
    Water pump
    Timing chain/tensioner
    Idle control valve
    Glove box, matching lock and BMW glovebox flashlight
    Interior led's all around and two in the trunk
    led brake, turn, back up, daytime running lights, with resistors (so the car recognizes the bulb)
    Full BMW tool set

    Will come with:
    Original springs
    Extra idle control valve
    New brake rotors (rear) and front and rear set of pads
    miscellaneous gaskets and materials I have bought for this car
    24lb Injectors, stock injectors and e36 window buttons (for one touch capabilities)
    Timing light
    Full BMW toolkit (8/10 mm combo wrench not pictured, but I will include)
    Electrical injector connections
    Second o2 sensor bung installed (for lambda sensor, sold kit)
    Hardcopy and searchable PDF of the BMW Bentley Repair manual
    4 extra Thule locks (all 8 match and use the same key)
    8 or 9 total keys for Thule roof rack
    DOT 4 brake fluid
    Pretty much anything else I can find for this car

    2 E36 maf sensors
    Extra hoses and belts
    2 extra steering rack boots (covers inner tie rod)
    Fuel level sender/sensor
    2 Air flow vanes

    Clean interior (6/10 overall, the rear half is 8/10)

    dings, dents and old paint
    AC hasn't been upgraded, but it's fairly inexpensive to convert it to R134a, (still R12)

    The fix would be a 24v swap like the s50, s52 (m3) :) or even m50, m52 (325is) , but I don't have the time or the space to do that.

    Alternatively, drop another m10 in there nice and easy. Ive seen people wanting to get rid of their old, running m10's for $300 to free, because of an electric vehicle conversion or bigger engine upgrade, again, I don't have the time or garage for that :(

    Again, it can drive, but not far.

    I am not willing to part out.

    Thanks for reading
