1998 318ti Manual WOF and reg, $1,800 ono.

Recommended Posts

HI folks, time to move on from my two much loved hatches due to 3 kids and dog and bikes etc, so getting a 530i wagon.  Here is the first of two.

1998 (WBACG72050AR74269).  235,000km.

Good points.  Engine starts every time and runs great, doesn't blow any smoke or use much oil between changes (less than a liter), doesn't use coolant either.  Has new water pump, fairly new thermostat, newish air filter element.  BMW 16 inch alloys, with 205 55 directional tyres all with plenty of tread.  Has towbar.  Manual shift.  WOF til 25th April 2018 Rego 23rd April 2018.  Aircon still blows cold enough for me but for others might need a re-gas.

Not so good points.  Rough exterior and interior.  Headliner fabric sagging down (I spray adhesived it back up to keep it off my head but not a quality job!).  Seats need a good cleaning.  It looks its age hence the price.   Left front wheel has a vibration that is sporadically felt through the steering wheel at speed - guessing this might be a control arm bushing needing replacing.

Has done 235K (I had it since 130K, changed oil and filter at every computer service interval, gave it Q8 Formula Excel 5W-40 fully synthetic at every change up until the last one).

Removable rear tray included but isn't currently in the car.

Best offer round $1800 and it's yours!   If it sells this or next week I'll throw in two spare 205 55 r16 tyres, the Dunlop has almost new tread depth.  Can call me on 06 308 8868.   Ad for second manual 318ti (172,000km and better condition for $3,500) later today.
