Taken in P/X by a client of our on his Ford Cortina, he has now asked us to offer for sale this lovely condition 1996 BMW 318 E36 with the desirable 5 speed manual option.
He has had it professionally valeted and you can judge the results by the pictures, very nice throughout. Body is excellent, not 100% rust free but with only one or two signs of slight corrosion just beginning under the paint that you may or may not want to address.
Interior is also very good throughout, one horizontal seam on the drivers back rest has given way but no heavy wear on the bolsters etc.
Mechanically it is said to drive “Bang on” with no problems at all. Mileage on the clock is reading just under the 39K mark. Now this cannot be right but the car does not look to of travelled 138.000 either? Unfortunately it came from its last owner with things like 3 keys but no service history! The best we can say for sure is that on the DVLA MOT register it was first recorded in 2006 with 16,014 miles on the clock. Then subsequent years through to 2017 at 38.538, so 22.500 miles in the past 12 years. You would assume it must have had a clock replaced at some point in its life but who knows?
With its current MOT until November and with prices of E36’s definitely on the rise, this car represents a chance to own one now, enjoy it as an everyday retro and show at the weekend while its value goes up.
