1991 BMW 318i Sedan 1 owner with 66K miles


CAtuned 91 BMW E30 318i

Igor Polishchuk


It is not often we get an E30 with this much originality and low low miles.

We have gone one step farther and have gone through the car from head to toe.

Often when a car sits there are issues to be found as seals, bushings and other components go bad so even tho the car has low miles it will need work.

We took the guessing out and replaced everything plus much more.
