Default Avus Blue 1998 318ti M tech with California Roof

Avus Blue 1998 318ti M tech with California Roof
$425,000 Now $4,250
Novato, CA
For sale is my Avus Blue 1998 318ti M tech with California Roof. Mileage is 257,000. The car is very clean and comfortable and runs very strong with no mechanical problems. The interior is in very good shape; no rips or tears, minimal wear even to the driver's seat bolster. All systems function correctly, including cruise control, onboard computer/clock, remote entry, alarm and sunroof.

I have replaced:

1) The water pump and the fixture under the exhaust manifold in the cooling system. This broke shortly after I purchased the car, over a year ago. After repairs I drove the car non stop from L.A. to Marin with no trouble and have had no problems since. Temp needle stays dead vertical.

2) The stereo. The car has a new 4 channel system with a Sony head unit (model MEX-GS620BT), an Alpine MRV-F300 amp, Rockford Fosgate and Polk Audio speakers. The Sony is a radio/cd unit with a usb port for IPOD and a bluetooth handsfree cell phone hookup with microphone.

3) r/r fluids. Transmission & differential are filled with fresh Royal Purple ATF Max 75/90. Engine oil is Valvoline SynPower 5/30 full synthetic.

4) New plugs and wires.

5) New battery, 7/17.

Here is the list of parts the previous owner replaced. These are only prominent items. In addition, he changed TPS (1st and 2nd), PCV, ICV, and cam sensor.

1) clutch discs + Guibo joint
2) wheels bearings (all four corners)
3) steering rack
4) alternator
5) fuel pump + sender + filter
6) radiator + water pump + thermostat + hoses
7) secondary air pump (smog pump) + EGR valve
8) oxygen sensors
9) struts + shocks (original Sachs)
10) rear subframe mounts
11) all discs + pads
12) front control arms
13) crankshaft seals (front + rear)
14) driver side window regulator
15) head cover gasket

Upgrades:
M-steering wheel
BMW genuine chrome interior trims
M3 side mirrors
M3 DS1 rims with less than 1 year old Michelin tires
M3 front bushing
Urethane rear swing arm bushing
BMW clear lights for all four corners
K&N air filter
HID headlights with angel eyes (not hooked up)
Factory style rear spoiler

I paid $5,000 for this car. I have since purchased another 318ti with lower mileage, making this car redundant. I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. I am going to place it on Craigslist for $4,250. I would rather it went to a ti enthusiast who would appreciate and care for it.

More photos to follow.

I just saw your CL post. Great ad and great looking car! I hope you can find a buyer on the forum. Damn, if I had the space, I’d buy it! CL is mighty frustrating. So far, how many emails have you gotten asking, “Is your ride still for sale?”. Good luck with your sale. Cheers!

Beautiful car! https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/cto...660608541.html

Interesting, it's a '98 model but doesn't have the wind deflector

Default Still Available

The car is still available and yes, it does appear to be one of the last built without a wind deflector. It only makes a real difference over 70 mph.

Default Car Show

I'm going to take the Blue Mtech to Cars & Coffee at Vintage Oaks Shopping Center in Novato Sunday morning in case anyone is interested in seeing it (and a lot of other cool cars) in person.
