BMW E36 318is


The E36 had big shoes to fill after the success of the E30, but its much anticipated arrival didn’t disappoint and is fast becoming one of the most desirable 3 Series in the back catalogue.

In truly exceptional original condition, this 1993 318is is finished in Calypso Red metallic and has, incredibly, only covered a mere 15,900 miles with 3 previous owners.

The spec includes an electric tilt and slide sunroof, electric windows, M-Sport suspension and warning triangle/first aid kit.

The car is completely original, save for an upgraded aftermarket Blaupunkt radio, and scores excellently in all areas. The bodywork is straight and the paint holds a flawless deep shine, while the grey cloth interior with leather steering wheel and gear knob show hardly any signs of wear.

Mechanically, the car performs faultlessly and the highly revered M42 engine is an absolute joy. Coupled with the car’s Getrag 5-speed gearbox and multi-link suspension, it’s a car that has confident roadholding and offers a smooth and easy driving experience.

The large history file contains the original bill of sale, the original leather wallet containing all handbooks and service books, plus a collection of invoices and receipts for maintenance carried out over its 31 years. The car’s 3 original keys are also present.

A very special example of one the of the great analogue BMWs that benefits from €56 tax, and the closest thing you will get to owning an E36 that looks and feels like brand new.
