1996 Black BMW 328i Sedan Manual trans - 177k miles
$2011 - Challenge priced GRM special Ypsilanti, MI

Recently redone cooling system. Eibach springs. Bilstein struts/shocks.

Decent condition. Seats are leather and heated. A/C does not work. Driver's side A-pillar trim broke off. Otherwise interior is in quite good shape. Rear seats look barely used at all. Door panels seem solid. Rear windows and rear windshield are tinted. I removed front window tint for legality sake. Electric window motors and sunroof panel work properly. Driver's door lock has some difficulty.

Cosmetic rust. Loose heat shield under car.

2.8L Straight six is in good condition. Manual transmission. Pulls quite well. New cooling system, including all aluminum radiator, metal impeller water pump, new hoses, new thermostat, aluminum thermostat housing. Roughly 9 months ago. Transmission fluid changed 2k miles ago. Also replaced alternator, fuel pump and driveshaft guibo within last 6 months. However, clutch assembly is on the fritz.

A few bushings could stand to be replaced. PO replaced OEM springs with Eibach lowering springs. PO also replaced shocks with Bilstein shocks. PO's suspension work less than 4 years old.

Rear brakes need work. Have new-in-box rear rotors and pads. Will come with car.

Pics: To be added this evening.

Contact via "Contact" link. I'll then email/phone afterwards.

Note: Today verified that the issue I thought was the clutch is not the clutch. Apparently the rear diff is moving around which is making the thumping noise.

Bump for ya, just because I like to say "Ypsilanti".

This would make a great spec E36 race car.

I am still interested. A rough weekend and little sleep has made me a little ornery. I am just waiting for one check to clear and I should be there.
