Default 1996 318ti California Roof - 5MT - Aqua Metallic

For Sale By Dealer:

1997 1996 BMW 318ti California 5MT
Individual Aqua Metallic
Cloth Grey Interior
WBACG7322TAS96424
~77k Miles

Options List: https://www.mdecoder.com/decode/as96424

Photo Album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/2aB68Bwy5rYtSYoX9

Very low miles! This car is a gem and you will be hard pressed to find another in this condition with a 5 speed and California roof. The roof is fully functioning. This car spent a lot of time in Florida and is rust free. (I had forgotten a few areas of rust on the roof next to the California top. Close up photos will be added to the album. The underbody and body panels other than the roof are rust free.) Owner's manual, radio code and original window sticker is included with the vehicle. The car runs well and handles like it should from the factory.

The car, however, is not without it's flaws. I tried to photograph them in the album but I will highlight them here:
  • The paint on the top of the rear bumper is faded. See photo.
  • There are various blemishes in the paint, a few small dings and a few spots of sap. Overall paint is somewhere between fair and good.
  • The rear potion of the headliner appears to have some water damage. See photo.
  • The outer bolster on the driver seat is ripped. See photo.
  • The A Pillar covers are loose and hanging. I have replacements ordered and they will be installed before sale.
  • The undercarriage has a coating of oil from the oil filter housing and power steering leak that has since been repaired.
  • The roof has a few spots of rust next to the California roof.

This vehicle has been recently serviced with the following items addressed:
  • Front and Rear Struts Replaced With New Strut Mounts. (OEM Replacements)
  • Oil Filter Housing Gasket Replaced
  • Power Steering Hoses Replaced
  • Roof Motor Replaced with a used motor. I sourced a set of gears on eBay and replaced the gears and re-greased the gearbox. The original motor was functional but the gears were stripped.
  • Spark Plugs Replaced.
  • Intake Air Filter Replaced.
  • Front Sway Bar Links and Bushings Replaced.
  • Driver Door Clips repaired using structural epoxy.
  • Passenger Mirror Cover replaced with a used cover and painted to match.

I am a dealer who specializes in BMW's. I have looked this car over and addressed any major shortcomings. The car is ready to drive!

Additional photos or video can be provided by request. I will get some photos of the undercarriage added to the album within the next day or two.

A 30 day drive away permit is available for out of state buyers.

Price: $4000 obo

Sweet car! About 300 cars before my Cali edition. Some people may ask how much you're looking to get for it.

I think if you check the forum rules, price is required as part of the posting.

Or at least most forums that is one of the requirements.

Thank you for the feedback.

Update:

I took some additional photos and uploaded them to the album. Under body and under hood images along with a few close ups of the rust spots, a small dent near the gas fill door and a few blemishes in the paint.

RE: The red power steering hose. This was bulk hose that I had available to replace that section of power steering line. It just happens to be red, not black. If it is a bother to a potential owner then I would be happy to replace it with black hose.

A walk around video has also been added to the album.

Your car is a 1996 Aqua metallic 318ti with the California package. I have the same car with the same sand gray seats but mine has an auto.
