For sale is an amazing well balanced, well maintained, documented, 3 owners, multi-BMW enthusiast owned rare E36 323is. This has truly been one of the most fun to drive cars I have ever owned. I have recently purchase an E30 and also have an E36 M3 4/5. I am looking to sell to an enthusiast.
The car was purchased new in Southern California by the first owner and purchased 3 years later in California by the second owner who moved to Portland a few years later. The second owner is a multi-BMW car owner and BMWCCA member. I also am a very active BMWCCA member and purchased this car 2 years ago. The car has aways been a West Coast Car.
Always well maintained, never abused, adult driven, never tracked, yet.
The car has a clean CarFax, never wrecked. Synthetic Oil has always been used and been changed every 3 to 6k miles. I have a huge pile of receipts and records that date back to the original owner and a spread sheet of all maintenance and modifications that have been performed.
Everything works as is should. Even the A/C blows cold (and it hasn’t been charged in years). Cruise control works great and the info pixels all light as they should. The head liner has been replaced. There are a number of dings, minor dents and rock chips.
The engine pulls strong and the transmission is very precise. All fluids for been change in regular service intervals. The power steering lines have a slight leaks and the heat shield rattle at times on rough roads.
One of my favorite things about the car is the combination of the Recaro seats, thick leather steering wheel and leather shifter with the short sift kit. Fits like a glove. The car also has a great intake and exhaust note…Not to loud but just right.
