Default 1999 BMW E36 Euro 323ti

Greetings 318ti lovers and enthusiasts!

For sale is my beautiful, clean, rare, trustworthy 323ti! Some may recognize this car, having been on this site before, but for those who do not know, here are some specs/history.


This 1999 323ti was produced in Germany for the Italian market, and was later brought to the U.S., where it spent some time in Baltimore, Maryland, and DC, before slowly making it's way down to the Sunshine states where it's been for the past few years. It is registered here in FL, with no issues, and has been driven in the states for the majority of it's life. As far as I know, it is 1 out of 3 or 4 in the states.

This wonderful car has a 2.5L M52 powerplant, making 170 hp, with a 5 speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels. This is the most powerful and sought-after Ti E36 platform ever produced worldwide, making it extremely rare and collectible.

Having the 2.5L engine, such a light body, superb handling, and an awesome sounding stock exhaust, makes this car very spunky and very fun to drive. As a daily driver, I can promise that you will never be bored while driving to your boring day job! This car has been such a joy to own and drive, I just know that it will give you the freedom from the monotony of everyday life!

It does has the cluster converted to read MPH, but the odometer still reads in Kilometers. It currently sits at 318,500 km, so that would be approximately 198,000 miles. Despite being high-ish mileage, you would not be able to tell from the sound and feel of the engine. It has been personally maintained and cared for by myself and the previous owner, who himself is a collector of unique BMW's such as this one.

Apart from some age signs, the interior is still very clean, despite being almost 20 years old. As it is with the age there is the typical bolster wear/damage. Everything else in the car is in working order, and the car itself drives beautifully. The exterior is great condition, as I’ve recently had it undergo a full 2-stage repaint. The exterior and interior have been recently detailed, and I kept the car very clean on a continuous basis. I have never smoked in the car, so there are no odd smells lingering in the car.

Some recent maintenance done includes:

LiquiMoly Oil and filter
Engine mounts
Transmission Mounts
Bilstein front stuts
Strut mounts/Pads
Sway Bar links
Tie-Rod Assembly Left and Right
Lower Control Arm
New OEM Radiator
Various pulley and tensioners
New Thermostat
New Water Pump
Power Steering Reservoir
Hood struts
VANOS system overhaul including new unit
Valve cover gasket
Shift linkage assembly

Maintenance needed:

The transmission does skip out of reverse when the engine/tranny are not warmed up. After driving for a while, the reverse is pretty reliable. I tend to back in to spots and live with it.

When driving this car, you do not feel like you are driving an aged collector's car. It is a rare experience that I have been honored to enjoy.This is a genuine 323ti, not an unreliable transplant as many tend to do. It has some tasteful upgrades done, as well as an impressive list of features. Some features include:

MTech Body Package
Premium Sound System with CD Player
Tinted Dual Power Windows
Power Locks
Power Mirrors
Fully working Dual Power Sport Seats (only available for the 323ti) with thigh
Bolster adjustment
Side-Impact Airbags (only available for the 323ti)
Traction Control
17 inch Staggered MContours done with beautiful custom powdercoating
Traction Control

Factory chrome trim (only available for the 323ti)
M steering wheel
Ice-Cold AC/Working Heat
OEM headlights with electrically adjustable height/angle with interior switch
