Here for sale I have a solid and sought after 1993 BMW E30 Touring 316i Lux. The car is in fair condition for the age and I have included as many photos as possible of the condition of the car.
**PLEASE NOTE THE NUMBER PLATE PICTURED HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE CAR**
I have been daily driving this car since I bought her in 2019 and have spent a lot of money throughout the year making sure she is mechanically correct.
The car runs really well and starts on the first time, it doesn't miss a beat. This is not a car that has been sat around and will require loads of work to get running; it passed it's MOT with flying colours and no advisories and I have been working on the car regularly throughout ownership to make sure the car is mechanically sound.
Since buying the car the following work has been carried out:
- the passenger side footwell had a hole which has been cut out and professionally welded / treated- the drivers side boot corner also had a hole which was welded and treated at the same time- the car has 4 brand new Kumho tyres- the top end of the engine has had a reconditioned spray bar for the overhead cam, along with brand new hoses- the bottom end of the engine has had a new lower sump along with both upper and lower sump gaskets- brand new discs and pads front and rear- new brakes lines front and rear have been plumbed in- a rear differential was fitted as the previous one had missing teeth- a new cam belt was fitted in September 2019- the car was fully serviced in September 2019 including spark plugs
With regards to the interior, I have fitted:
- two new (to me) seat backs in better condition- a better condition steering wheel- a new gear knob
The car will also come with brand new lowering springs and a new heater fascia waiting to be fitted, if you so wish.
The good points:
- DAB digital radio which connects to your phone via bluetooth with ease- mechanically maintained to an exceptional standard with no expense spared- used every day including commuting and hasn't missed a beat, the car is solid
The bad points:
- the paint is 27 years old and it shows, the exterior of the car is 'patina' for want of a better word, and is rusting in places (as pictured). The car could do with a full exterior restoration of the body work at some point, if you wish. Personally, I quite like the car as is as you don't need to worry about car parks scratches or dings!!- the rear bumper has had a scrape- the front speakers in the car don't work, and I haven't had the time to take the fascia out and replace them- the windscreen has a crack in the drivers side that I haven't got round to sorting out, but this may be booked in and sorted under my insurance by the time the car is sold- the headlining in the car is sagging, this is a common E30 Touring problem- the carpets are a little tired, and would benefit from dying
**I have now found the service history and all receipts and MOT history all the way back since new (thanks to 2 moves, the paperwork got lost to storage) so the car will come with all the service history present**
In summary this is a good, honest, original paint car that can either have a full restoration to bring it back to factory spec or used and enjoyed as I have been using it as a practical, comfortable daily driver.
The current numberplate of the car is L361MBL.
