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

For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-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.

    Sterling Silver 1991 318iS 4.1 LSD Silver cloth interior NH / MA 7300obo

    Sterling Silver Metallic, rare last-year 318iS coupe

    265K miles, estimated 60K+ on rebuilt engine. No valve tick/ timing chain rattle, compression test numbers healthy/ within spec. no leaks underneath. welcome PPI at buyer’s expense

    Transmission shifts smoothly, differential functions perfectly with no grinds. Clean title, two prior owners.
    Suspension is taut and assertive, drives like a track-ready vehicle
    Comes with original manual, full set of original tools, both original keys and is missing nothing, I.E. has all undertray components, brake ducting and plastic parts.
    Dead reliable, 30 mpg and exhilarating every drive.
    only cosmetic rust of which the majority has been repaired. Clean sport interior with rare silver cloth, crack-free dash.
    Tracks straight, pulls hard and offers progressively more power with climbing rpms.
    Comes with a multitude of parts that allude to a much longer-term relationship than we’re looking at. Was a keeper vehicle but emergency situation/ career comes first. was in the middle of cosmetic restoration (fixing rock chips, fixing hood paint, nicks, bespoke rear spoiler, rear apron and redo of battery tray fix) when shit hit the fan irl. so the car doesn’t appear to be as presentable as can be… a driving project, if i have to be harpy.
    Between the very rare configuration of this rare model and the sheer joy of custodianship of this machine, hopefully this is reasonably priced.
    A turnkey daily driver, hates being garaged (although the vehicle has been garaged throughout my tenure)
    318iS:
    Rare factory option 4.1 LSD
    Also rare Silver Cloth Sport Interior with manual sunroof (no rust)
    Mostly stock, some minor aesthetic tweaks
    Maintenance:
    <60k miles
    Bilstein Struts, shocks all around, very competent suspension
    Power antenna replaced
    Rear axle bearings
    Front tie rods, bushings all around
    Rotors, pads
    rebuilt calipers
    <20k miles
    Accessory belts replaced with OEM
    New NGK spark plugs
    Faded rubber replaced in engine bay �Minor surface rust repair
    Crank Position Sensor
    Deep cleaned interior
    Fluids (cooling system, differential, oil)
    Audio system refreshed all around (speakers, etc super crisp)
    OBC replaced
    Upgrades:
    K&N Lifetime Air Filter
    BME Driveshaft, carrier bearings, and associated parts.
    Lightweight Bluetooth / USB Blaupunkt Head Unit (Original available as well)
    Custom lightweight Porsche 944 derived Magnaflow axle-back system (low, refined sound and progressive with acceleration)
    Bespoke rear spoiler
    Graphite Metallic OEM 14” BBS Wheels
    Monochromatic cloth seat inlay
    Cons:
    Odometer / brake pad thickness sensor needs repair (common issue), can be resolved simultaneously
    Fair amount of ‘patina’ on exterior (but only cosmetic rust)
    cloth seats have minor wear, worst being driver's side will upload better pics soon
    final thoughts:
    this is guilt-free gruppe b, the RS or GT3 of BMW’s and the perfect antidote for anybody that’s fallen out of love with the brand. this car took a stout shit on every BMW i6 experience i’ve ever had, and is truly BMW’s best kept secret bar none. my resume of past cars is comprised of top-tier pedigree, including oft-sung heroes like the R32 GTR, 76’ 911S, MR2 and FD3S RX-7. I look back at the FD as my absolute favorite experience, and only the 318is comes close. Both cars permeated and consumed aspects of my daily life that no other cars did. No other car has ever had me bolt downstairs buck-naked at 3am with a kitchen knife and the outlandish notion that it was stolen out of my garage or inspire a pilgrimage to metric meccanics in bumfuck, missouri. i’m not a real emotional guy, but can honestly say that i’ve crested an apex with this machine, choking back tears in awe of the symphony between man and machine. its ability to subvert reality with swiss-alps-key-like feedback demands your attention and makes you feel like the hero of your own story, at a price that having experienced it, makes buying anything else seem almost masochistic.
    that said... even if it ain't this one.. get a 318is!!

      appreciate the kind words! the drivetrain/ chassis combination is very addicting, glad you're back on board




      for any prospective buyers, i'd like to add that i'm pretty negotiable

        I would suggest adding more pics. Especially of the exterior rust and interior.

          Sorry, I will do this asap. In the meantime, I'm bumping with a new price:

          $6981.85 OBO nobody has come to see the car as of yet.

              I don't think you're likely to see a serious buyer until the extent of the rust is known. In the few pics that are posted, it appears you might well have a great example that's well-priced...it's just hard to know from what's there. Just my $.02. GLWS
