Location : Topeka
Title: clean
Mileage: 137xxx
Price: 3500 cash or trade
Description: hellrot red (rare) 1985 318i in very good condition. Everything power works, drives buttery smooth down the road, clutch grabs smootthhh. Shifts buttery. Pulls pretty hard. Gets great mpg (35-40), low mileage, interior is fairly clean back seats are like new, has maintence records for the past 20+ years. Very reliable, power everything. Almost new tires
Cons - a tiny spot of rust almost non noticiable, wear on drivers seat, small amount of clear coat peeling from trim of rear window about 5 inches long. It does drip a bit of oil, havent figured out where. Not bad at all. One of the belts is loose and squeals under low acceleration. Runs and drives perfect and it's fairly clean

Nice E30! But i honestly think the price is pretty high compared to others on the market.
Good luck getting $3500 out of that.

If you're going to ask that much, at least take the 5 minutes to adjust your belts!

It's not a firm price...this car has all the maintence records going back almost 20 years and damn near 0 rust, a crack free dash, everything works, and low miles. You always post high for the low ballers who try to talk to down.

Bump for a fellow E30 owner.

How does the battery box look under the battery? Also a good place to start on that oil leak would be the valve cover haha.

Looks great under the battery. I just drove from topeka to kc today in it. Drives smoootthhh. I pushed it pretty hard on some of the on/off ramps it grips better than my miata surprisingly. The oil leak is only a few drips it doesn't bother me too much. I keep checking the level it doEsnt drop any. Car drives perfect and very reliable. Willing to accept trades too.

I'll take massive amounts of pictures if you guys really want me to. That picture is the only rust on the car. There's no bubbles anywhere it was NOT on Craigslist I purchased from a BMW enthuasist. For anyone who doubts the legititmacy of this sale come look at the car yourself Im an honest seller and am not trying to pawn a project off to someone else. I'll take tons of pictures all around and inside the trunk and under the car. This is a two owner car. The original owner sold it to a family member who then sold it to me that's why I have almost EVERY single maintence record on this car. Its my DD and I enjoy driving it, just kinda wanting to get back into a miata again is all. By all means come drive the car and fully inspect it before you buy it I have nothing to hide.

not to be a dick , but would that not make it a three owner car? good luck with your sale

Two previous owners who took very good care of the car. It's been in the same family since it was purchased brand new. If you check my previous post I also posted a YouTube video of me driving the car. Drives buttery smooth, shifts smooth, clutch grabs hard. It really is a nice e30. Much nicer than any of the ones on Craigslist.

Blows my mind how prices on e30's have gotten out of control. This one looks kinda solid minus the spot on the quarter but it's still a 4 cyl and not a sport plus the 4cyl doesn't look well cared for since it obviously needs a vc gasket and I'm sure all the maintenance done. You could get 3500 if it was a 325is but it's not.

Also do you have proof that that is the original odometer as most either don't work or have been replaced.

Appears you need a new hood roundel. I just so happen to have one. I will give it to you for free if you remove the m badges.

Drove this today It is really clean in person, shifts into all gears perfectly and drives smooth. And the rust spot Isnt noticeable unless you are close to the car.

MyGirlyCar<3
2012-08-03, 07:39 PM
Lol i didn't put the m badges on and It clearly says 3500 obo. Car is super solid I actually just got back from driving it to lawerence. Gets stupid good mpg too. I believe the odometer is correct as the most recent paperwork (oil change) on the car was in feb with the odo reading 136k. I've already got a few potential buyers coming to check the car out. One person met up with me today drove it and loved it but his offer was lower than what I was willing to accept.

Really wanting to trade for a Mazda miata to be honest. Price drop to 3k obo. Just changed the oil today as well. Belts don't squeal anymore either as shown in the video, A/C needs recharged but works just fine. I DD the car, and have an entire folder of maintence records on it. If anyone has a 90-97 miata in fairly clean condition hit me up. I miss mine a lot. E30 handles like one. Takes corners pretty damn well.

AFTER:
http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m14/that1emokid/874e1003.jpg

Shaved a rear bumper and molded it to the front, deleted the license plate, fog lights, and routed the blinkers behind the grill. Replaced one of the bulbs too. Looks way cleaner I dig it.

But most importantly you removed the m badge. Still looking for that roundel, i know its in the garage somewhere.

MyGirlyCar<3
2012-08-08, 10:37 PM
Hahah I knew you'd say that. It's cool if you can't find it man. I scraped all the glue residue off where the badge used to be. The chrome kinda looks better. It's a clean subtle look. Might just grab some sharpies and draw my own BMW logo on ;)

2012-08-09, 11:14 AM
2500 or trade me a miata! I'm lowering it this weekend too. Friend with the white e30 wants me to keep it lol. I honestly just want another miata maaaannnn.

99sil-teg
2012-08-09, 12:13 PM
I'd keep the e30, always regretted selling mine. Plus miata's are the new cool thing and prices are worse than e30 prices lol.

Side note: buff it and it will look like new. Mine was super faded but after I buffed it the paint came back to life.

MyGirlyCar<3
2012-08-09, 12:25 PM
I wasn't out of my miata phase. I've gone through 4 of em in the past 2 years. Last one was basically fully built and fast as shit. I wanna go for the cleaaannnn low n slow look with one now. Here in Topeka I'm basically the only one in the car scene who's into miatas/can fit into one comfortably lol. So they're not played out at all. And they can be had all day on Craigslist for 1500-3000. Same price as an e30. Appreciate the comment though. Honestly the paint is still pretty damn shiny when it's washed. Small bit of fade on the trunk. I wouldn't mind letting it fade I dig the patina look. The e30 is starting to grow on me though. I honestly really like the tucked bumper mod I did, and used a rear bumper cover to give it that clean look with no ugly blinkers in the bumper. Might keep it I dunno.

You should really put it up on craigslist, you may have better luck selling it.

If it drives and runs as good as you say I bet it should sell quick.
Have you looked at the fender, where the rust is, for any body filler?
judging by the way the paint looks and the rust forming I would say it looks like it
Was repaired at one point.

It's a clean running driving e30 people and I'm taking a loss on it. I'm not hiding anything I've taken tons of pictures of the car inside and out, answered everyone's questions. Dropped the price a lot. Good luck finding an e30 in this price range that isn't a complete beater/rustbucket. Im moving to Tennessee on sept 10th. I need at least a couple grand before I go. Asking price is 1700 for kcsr and 2000 obo for Craigslist users. I paid 2000 for it but can't take it with me when I move...I know someone wants a clean e30. 7852899211
