Default OH: 1999 318ti Sport, Cali Roof, Dinan, RARE

9/21: Sold (Pending Payment)

1999 318ti Sport



Summary: Rarest of Rare Ti's in most desirable Alpine/Black/Gray combo. Dinan and other tasteful minor upgrades. Near perfect inside and out. Neither babied nor abused, has never let me down, the most reliable car I've ever owned. Everything works as it should down to the rear wiper nozzle. Accelerates very well, maintained by enthusiast CCA adult driver at expert independent mechanics. Never raced or tracked. I desire to pass her on responsibly as it took me two years to find this car.

Full pics here: http://cid-656b22c4fcdc2426.skydrive...GetSharingLink



Why buy this car?

1. RARE. 1 of 540. The ultimate Ti. Sport+manual+cali roof. Took me two years to find her.
2. BEAUTIFUL. Near perfect inside, outside and upside downside.
3. RELIABLE. I would let my 82 year old mom drive it across the country
4. WELL MAINTAINED by adult enthusiast. Recent service includes all new brakes, clutch & TO bearing, PS hose. Most records available.
5. NO CAT ISSUES. Newer factory cat and O2 sensors, < 20k miles.
6. ECONOMICAL. 28 mpg combined best highway mileage 38mpg
7. TASTEFUL UPGRADES, OEM, high quality.
8. TONS of photos and videos available. More coming. I have nothing to hide and I hate sellers who post 3 lousy phone pics. If you drive to see/buy this car you will not be surprised.
9. CENTRALLY LOCATED in Ohio, deliverable within Ohio and surrounding states for gas, etc.
10. RESPECT from M3 drivers (ok maybe not this)

Wow Phil, I can't believe you are selling it! This is an awesome car! I've seen it up close trying to install ZKW headlights (Dinan CAI trumped it). Phil took me for a drive and it was very smooth, solid ride through RPM range with Dinan chip. And the you can never go wrong with the cali top! GLWTS Phil

Thanks but, sorry, I have yet to catch that bug and this is part of the "streamlining" of my life. Cannot imagine a well sorted M3 would be hard to sell though.

If you had an e46 325i/ix touring with sport pkg and manual THAT would be another story.

For the record my split life of working 250 miles from home also involves showing/selling my house and being a father/husband/handyman on the weekends. I will do my best to feild inquiries on a timely basis and share my phone # with anyone who PM's me so you can harass me if I don't keep on the ball.

Thanks man! Ohio is in a "golden moment" for Ti sales with yours and mine up for grabs. Cool thing is they are different. I actually pointed someone up here to your car based on what they were wanting.
