1991 BMW 318is 1.8L M42 INLINE-4, DOHC L


Description


Blemishes include a few little dings, a scratch on top of the driver's fender near where it meets the cowl, paint aging on the rear spoiler, and a couple very light bumper scuffs. Body is nice and dry, with the only rust being a tiny bit under the license plate light on the passenger side (minor – see close-up photo from rear). Alpine White paint is original throughout, and we have put a paint gauge on every panel and confirmed it (3.1-3.8). Looks great – no signs of being buffed thin, no fade, peeling, or discoloring. Rockers and front spoiler have been refinished in black. Weatherstripping is in nice shape throughout, not dry or brittle. Sunroof is manually operated, and seals up nice and tight.
Interior is pretty impressive. Black sport seats are in great shape and have never been reupholstered. There's a bit of age cracking on the driver's outer seat back bolster – again, check out the photos. There are two tiny little nicks/partial splits in the dash that are roughly 1cm each, one at the corner of the parcel holder above the glovebox, and one to the left top of the cluster. Original grey carpeting is fairly discolored in the backseat footwell area, not bad elsewhere. We'd recommend just getting a nice set of floormats for the car (checkered Coco Mats would look amazing...). Power windows are functional. Heat/fan is functional. R12 air conditioning still blows cold. Original radio with cassette player is functional. Gauge cluster looks great, doesn't have any of the greying/oxidation we so often see on BMWs and Mercedes of this era. Gauges are all functional with the aforementioned exception of the odometer. Headliner is clean, tight, and original, free of any water stains or damage. Sun visors hold their position. Something to note for BMW nerds – the contents of the original toolkit in the trunk are no longer with the car.
