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 is worth.

-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for 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.
-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, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.

    FS: 1991 318is Brilliantrot

    For sale is a very clean original example of a 1991 318is. The car was sold new in California and remained on the west coast until January of 2019. It has zero rust and is in fantastic shape given it’s age. The car was always looked after and it shows. (I have service records dating back to the early 2000’s)

    Details

    1991 318is Brilliantrot 188k miles - All vin tags are present, paint is original with the exception of the drivers door and quarter panel. Body is in very good shape with just a few door dings. Paint is in very nice shape and cleans up very well. Small dent on the front valence.
    Tan Cloth Interior - Seats are in very nice shape without any tears, Dash has ZERO cracks.
    All functions work: windows, lights, antenna, heater, odometer, radio etc...
    Engine and transmission are in great shape. I have owned a couple of 318’s and this one definitely feels a lot stronger then the others, it pulls hard to redline without any hesitation. Transmission shifts nice and smooth without any clunks
    Suspension feels nice and solid and does not make any noises

    Maintenance

    Rack and pinion replaced at 125,000
    Oil pan gasket replaced at 141,000
    Heater core replaced at 161,000
    Valve cover gasket replaced at 171,000
    Brakes 170,000
    Front Suspension refreshed at 170,000
    Tires 175,000
    Battery replaced March 2017

    Things that may need attention

    Cluster light bulb on the right side needs to be replaced.
    AC does not blow cold
    Clear coat has started to peel on the top of the drivers quarter panel
    Mirrors could use a repaint
    Rear bushings should be replaced. They are ok for now but a fresh set will really help the rear feel a bit more planted.


    Overall the car is an excellent example of a 318is that gets plenty of compliments everywhere it goes. It is an absolute pleasure to drive and I would not hesitate to take it across county tomorrow. Mileage will continue to go up as I try and drive it as often as I can. The only reason for the sale is that have my eye on an E34 M5. Clean title in my name and I can also share the carfax report with those who are interested.

    Asking $8500

        Nice car! I too am liking the tan cloth in such relatively nice shape. I always wanted a brilliantrot 318iS to scoot around town in.

        If I was back in Chicago, I'd be taking a look. E34 M5 will be sweet! GLWS!

            Thanks! The tan cloth is part of the reason I went for this car. Itís nice to have seats that are not scorching hot during the summer.

            The e34 M5 has always been a car I lusted after but never had the courage to buy one. The time has come so I am excited to see what the e34 world has to offer.

              Thanks Todd! I spent the day cleaning up all the plastic/rubber moldings so it looks a bit cleaner now.
