A truly, truly stunning BMW 318i Lux Coupe with just two owners and only 44301 miles. This car would not look out of place sitting inside a BMW showroom is quite simply...sensational!

Following a thorough mechanical overhaul, this little e30 now runs and drives as good as it looks.

Still wearing all of its factory fitted panels, the bodywork is absolutely arrow straight and 100% corrosion free and the Laser Blue metallic paintwork is unmarked and flawless. We often see cars pass through our doors that are presented to a very high standard, but we very seldom see one that looks like its just rolled off the production line some 27 years ago! All bumper corners and body side moulding strips are unmarked. The original tinted glass is excellent and all the rubbers remain supple and in excellent condition. The headlamps, indicators and rear lenses are crystal clear and free from any damage or chips. The factory fitted colour coded boot spoiler is completely straight and still remains supple. The satin door handles and window surrounds are vivid and as new.

Internally, the Silver/Grey cloth seats are exceptional and genuinely look as new. The deep pile carpet is unmarked and damage free. The headlining still remains tight and free from any marks or sagging/loosening. The dashboard is just lovely and completely damage/crack free. Door cards and all plastics are free from any marks or scuffs. The factory fitted electric sunroof tilts and slides perfectly and the sunroof gutters are free from any bubbling or rust issues. The electric windows and door mirrors work with ease and are swift in their operation. The 3 spoke leather steering wheel is excellent. The factory optional Pioneer radio cassette is fully functional and the electric aerial works as it should. Even after 27 years, the cabin still feels a very special place to be. The boot carpet and all surrounding plastics are unmarked and damage free and the tool kit is complete.

Following a professional refurbishment by Pristine Alloy Wheels, the original factory 'bottle top' alloys are superb and unmarked and are shod with brand new Firestone tyres all round. The tyres have only covered less than a mile and this was when we took the car for its MOT.

Mechanically the car is excellent and it drives superbly and it certainly defies its age. We have just had the following works carried out, so we now know that the car is 100% perfect...

  • Full service and the service indicators reset
  • New brake discs and pads
  • New brake lines
  • Power steering leak rectified
  • New seals in the rear diff
  • New fuel pipes
  • New suspension arm bushes nearside and offside

First registered on 23rd August 1990 by Halliwell Jones BMW of Southport, the car remained with its first owner until early 2003. It was then registered to a car trader for a month until its new owner was found. It has remained in his care until now. From new and until 2003 the servicing work was carried out by Williams BMW in Liverpool and also an independent BMW specialist and since 2003 it has been carried out a local independent garage. There are 15 stamps in total in the original service book.

The complete owners handbook pack is present along with the current V5 registration document and 3 original keys. Current MOT is until April 2018. The car is now ready to be cherished and enjoyed.

In our opinion you will not find a nicer e30 318i out there. The car looks lovely on the photographs, but it really does look far nicer in the flesh and it must be viewed to truly appreciate is genuinely stunning!
