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

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

Interior:
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.

Exterior:
Cosmetic rust. Loose heat shield under car.

Drivetrain:
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.

Suspension:
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.

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

Pics: To be added this evening.

Contact:
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.

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.
