Here we have an amazing example of the very rare E30 318 IS. These cars were nicknamed the ‘Baby M3’ and were built to take on the hot hatches of the time, Golf GTI’s, XR3i’s etc. So they were produced at the end of the E30 run, using the excellent 1.8 16 valve twin cam engine, Sports suspension, Manual gearbox etc. As the production run was only 2 years, they are now one of the rariest of the E30’s and sure to go up in value very quickly now !.
This example is finished in Brilliant Red paintwork. Its in truly amazing condition, this is a car ready to show. The paintwork has an amazing deep all over shine, no dings or dents, solid arches all round etc. You just cant find them in this sort of condition, this really is as good as they come now ! This example obviously comes with the distinctive and original 318is front spoiler. The rear spoiler has been upgraded to a BMW Mtech II spoiler, but the original lip spoiler also comes with the car.
The interior is finished in the Anthracite Sports check cloth. These again are in excellent condition, every where you look its all very clean and original. There is the slightest wear on the drivers bolster, but this has been repaired so that it wont wear any more, there are no cracks in the dash and its topped off by a lovely Blaupunkt stereo. There is a lovely Msport steering wheel, gearknob. The excellent condition continues to all the trim and door cards etc.
The wheels on this car are the larger 15inch BMW BBS Alloys. They are all in unmarked, perfect condition, they look stunning.
The engine bay and boot areas are just as nice as on the rest of this lovely car. Look closer, all the panels are original and free from any rust etc. Look underneath this car and is all just as good. All original sills / jacking points etc, all in lovely original condition.
Now we get to the best bit, how this car drives. Well its amazing. Look through the detailed history and all the wear and tear items on this car have been replaced. This car has the perfect service record and that shows the moment you turn the key. This engine sounds and performs as good as any you will find. The engine is soo responsive and eager to rev, just has they were designed to be. This model on paper has the same performance as the 2.5 Msport, yet it achieves it in a very different way. This model encourages you to use the revs of the engine, everything feels much lighter. I guess thats why it was nicknamed the ‘Baby M3’ as it feels very balanced and its got that superb power unit upfront.
I think that give you an idea how good this example is. You could spend years looking for one as good as this, so with prices sure to rise, this example must be seen.
It will have a years MOT before sale, its ready to be enjoyed now !
