Post For Sale: 332ti (318ti/M3 conversion) Sold

For Sale: 332ti (318ti/M3 conversion) SOLD

This car was done right. The conversion was done by Damon Sesto at German Autosports about 6 years ago when it only had 22,000 miles. Iíve put over 45,000 miles on the car since then and it has been trouble free except for normal maintenance items and recently replaced Vanos unit and PS rack.

The car is a well equipped Arctic Silver 5 speed California Roof Edition, factory equipped with black leather seats (still have the originals, but M3 Vaders are installed), premium sound with CD changer, cruise control and remote keyless entry with alarm.

The interior of the car is in excellent condition, no rips or tears in the leather or any of the other interior parts. The exterior of the car is also in very good condition. There are some chips and scratches on the bumper and the hood and some small scuff marks and one ding on the body, but overall it is in very good condition for a 10 year old car. There are no major dents, rust or scratches on the body. The Cali roof looks great, and works fine.

The car was converted using a single donor 97 M3:
97 M3 ODBII 3.2 liter engine and transmission
M3 Brakes with stainless braided lines
M3 front bumper/valance and mirrors
M3 black Vader seats
UUC short shift
UUC shift knob and brake handle
X brace
H&R springs and Bilstein shocks
K-Mac camber plates
Par Cold Air Intake
Turner chip
2 sets of wheels (Non staggered M contours with snows and 17 inch aftermarket wheels -seen in photo - with almost new General Exclaim UHP tires)
Turner unerdrive pulley
AC Schnitzer rear spoiler
328 gauge cluster
Clear corners
Euro headlights

The handling on this car is superb and of course it has plenty of power. I had the car dynoíd before the cold air intake or pulley and it was putting 210hp to the rear wheels and 225lbs of torque.

Recent work within the last 18 months:
New PS pump and reservoir
New Z3 Steering Rack
New Vanos unit
Replaced all O2 sensors
New clutch slave cylinder
4 New tires (General Exclaim UHP 225/45/17)
Recent tie rods and alignment

Known Problems:
No Traction Control (I donít know of any conversion that has this working)
No ABS (however the brakes on this car are very good and it stops on a dime)
MPG gauge doesnít work (again due to the conversion, but the gas gauge works fine)
Both fog lights have been removed. The car didnít originally have fog lights so they were never wired and both were cracked. Simple black covers can be installed and look nice.

This car is a blast to drive and really is in good condition. You won't be disappointed.

The car is located in Braintree MA.

Thanks, I'm a little surprised it sold so quickly. I'll miss that car. It has been great and the most fun car I've ever owned.

But, it is going to another 318ti fan and a good home, so I'm happy.
