Default 1996 BMW 318ti M3 Motor Swap!

For Sale/Trade:
1996 BMW 318ti with an S50 Motor and ZF 5 speed Swap!

All work has been done locally at Southwest Bimmers (swbimmers.com). The donor car is from my own E36 M3 that I've owned for years. The 318ti I picked up in Hemet CA with a bad motor.

Clean Title

-Dinan Front Sway Bar
-OEM BMW X-Brace
-Lightweight underdrive pulleys
-Single Mass Lightweight Flywheel
-Stage 1 Clutch
-Complete E36 M3 front suspension pieces swapped
-Front M3 Vented/Drilled Rotors and New Bosch Pads
-New OEM Engine Mounts
-New OEM Transmission Mounts
-Aluminium Transmission X Brace
-Upgraded 140 amp Bosch alternator with smaller pulley
-Driver front wheel bearing and hub
-BF Goodrich Comp-2 ALL 4 Tires!
-Newer Battery

-New Spark Plugs
-Valve Gaskets, Oil Filter Housing Gasket, Oil Pan Gasket has been replaced
-New Thermostat
-New Water Pump
-Wheel Alignment done
-All new fluids
-2.93 LSD

The project has been a labor of love and fun! We swapped everything we can from the M3 that would swap into the 318ti. The 318ti is a hybrid between E30 3 Series Rear end and E36 Front end. The car most definitely runs, drives and most certainly stop! Handles surprisingly well! Exterior is in ok condition. It could use a good buff to bring the deep Boston Green back. There is a small dent on the rear end. Previous owner told me his wife did not pull the handbrake up enough and the car drifted back into their gate. The interior is in tact! It does have the typical headliner sag, but still in good condition. The project was literally finished maybe 2 weeks ago. It is time to move on to the next project we are now raising funds for. The next owner will love driving this for a long time.

Price 6500

I am looking for an E46 Wagon, but let me know what ya got!
