ColourGreen + Tan Leather
This has got to be one of the best kept E36 BMW's out there.
Every little issue has been sorted, always synthetic oil, runs perfectly! Its completely stock (excluding the Sony radio deck)
2.5L straight 6 engine, consistent fuel mileage
Heated leather seats (best part of the car!)
Electric limited slip diff
Still great Michelin Defender M+S tires
To the best of my knowledge its a 3 owner car. I have owned the car since 2009 and have put maybe 40k on it. Before that it was owned by a Duncan resident who used it to commute to Nanaimo. Prior to that, it was owned by a doctor in Vancouver.
-Interior is near perfect, has some light wear on drivers seat and console armrest. carpets, dash, headliner are in great shape. Comes with some great over-mats. Power sunroof, windows, all lights, power locks all work.
-Exterior has 3 little issues: small rock chip in windshield (has been professionally filled, but still visible), shallow dent (~12in long) on passenger rear wing, one rust spot between truck lid and rear bumper (~2in dia). Otherwise, the exterior is really good, no paint issues or dents.
Maintenance i've had done:
Replaced instrument cluster (old had burned out light)
Wiper motor, control unit replaced
Left+right control arm, bushing, ball joint
control arm eccentric bolt, rear
4x Michelin Defender M/S tires (2014, now have 17k on them)
New variable camshaft timing unit
new battery 2013
New BMW hood badge
New rear window seal (not installed as there are no leaks, bought as a spare, old one is worn)
Various other little items such as new bulbs/lights, oil changes, gaskets, too much to list.
Issues I am aware of:
Needs AC compressor
Time for an oil change
Could use new wiper blades for winter
There are some electrical ground/connector issues that come up occasionally with these cars, these have always been easily fixed, none at the moment.
Please email or call (no texts, its a landline)
Car can be viewed in Victoria on weekends or Cowichan Bay/Nanaimo weekdays.
