AMAZING TIME WARP 318IS
ONLY 49,000 MILES
VERY RARE - ONLY MADE FOR 2 YEARS
Here at Old Colonel Cars, the Classic and Performance Car Agency, we are delighted to have this unrepeatable, low mileage, low owner, all original BMW E30 318is 16v Twin Cam ….
Only 49,000 Miles, first lady owner until 2018, then 2 since.
Always garaged, everywhere you look, it looks to be all original, this car look genuinely looks like a 2 year old car.
The paintwork, interior, underneath, engine bay, boot, all just as good.
I sold this 318is to current owner of 3 years, who has a lovely collection, all stored in his heated unit, now he’s decided to let it go.
It really is as good as they come.
The service history is amazing. We have all the original manuals, a fully stamped original service book, a folder full of all old Mot’s and Service receipts, from the original BMW Sales Receipt to now.
These are one of the rarest E30’s and are now very much sought after, only made for 2 years, same performance as the 325i Sport. Many have covered high mileages, it wasn’t uncommon to see examples with over 200,000 miles on them 10 + years ago. These cars certainly seem able to take the high mileages, so its almost impossible to find good, low mileage examples, let alone ones anywhere near as good as this one.
Finished in Brilliant Red, the paintwork and bodywork on this car look superb. Looks to be all original paint, with the deepest all over shine, no rust anywhere. This car could be sat in a BMW showroom, its that good..
Inside, the sports check cloth seats are in amazing condition, as are the door cards etc. Look closer, none of the very common cracks on the dash. Headlining all all good and correct, a lovely electric sunroof as well. Again, like a 2 year old throughout, even has the original dealer fitted stereo.
Underneath this car is again all solid, original and in excellent shape.
This cars drives and performs perfectly. The engine starts and performs without any fuss, very eager to rev and a lovely engine note. The 5 speed manual gearbox is nice and precise, the clutch feels just right, the factory sports suspension feels nice and precise. A very sporty drive, a lighter car compared to the 325i Sport, often described as the ‘Baby M3’.
One to grace any collection, this is as good as any you will find worldwide.
