Default 318ti Sports

hi guys,

I am planning to buy this car to make it as a donor car for my 318ti CA top- taking the M front and Back bumper only and replacing with stock bumper of my car. The color are the same so no mismatch of colors. The replacement bumper is great condition. The car has an very expensive sound system that does not appeal to me. Just want the bumpers and maybe the shifter. Was planning to take the mirrors but one is damaged so will just buy elsewhere.
So my question is - is anyone in the forum willing to buy this car minus the m stuff that I listed below. Will let it go for between $1000-$1300. But make me an offer. Like the ad say the sound system cost 6K and its custom built for this car. Will make a good swap for some one who is interested.
Going to see car later this week.

Wow! As in donor, do you mean you are taking the engine as well? Or literally just the bumpers?

Front E36 sport bumpers are around, any fits. The rear is harder to find but not impossible. Around $250 for a good one.

Is this a case of why buy the cow, when the milk is inexpensive? .....perhaps another analogy.

Bradestar: I totally agree with you as far as you analogy is concern.
Two reasons for doing this :

1. cant find a M front and back bumper - that matches my car for less than 1K -1.3 - new that is. need to buy and paint it. Ref to original stuff.
2. hate to see this car get scrapped or????> still looks decent for its age and mileage.

Hope this make sense. YES only planning to take the bumpers.

MANAC - The reason I hate to take the stereo out is that it may leave to many holes in the door cards and parcel shelf. Plus the wiring from what I have been told is all hidden so ripping it out may degrade the interior. Hoping someone will take with stereo. Hope this helps.

I'd be interested in this car and would take it with the stereo. I'm just across the border in Mass. I have been looking for a clean chassis.
