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.
