Description

GREAT CAR, GOOD RUNNER, MOT UNTIL APRIL 2018

For sale is my awesome BMW 323i convertible which I am reluctantly selling as I am buying a camper van to go travelling. The car is a soon to be classic and being the 2.5ltr, 6 cylinder, bullet proof engine, it is lots of fun to drive.

These little beauties are going up in value and getting rarer by the year. Most of them suffer from faulty roofs and end up in scrap yards, this one has a fully manual roof which means no problems are going to happen in that horrifically expensive area of repair that no mechanic will touch.

I have been using this car regularly and have had no issues with the engine. The car runs well, has plenty of power, no smoke, no overheating and is a lovely car to drive that sticks to the road.

The car was bought by myself in April as a summer car, from a guy who owned it 6 years and looked after it well. He had lots of cars and I think it was one of many as a sunday toy. He had all the electrics repaired for windows etc so all works well.

Over the years I have had a few e36 and this is by far the nicest one I have had. Mainly because it's been so trustworthy and put the others to shame with its acceleration and handling. I have done around 3000 miles in it this summer, including driving down to Cornwall where I did around 800 miles in 7 days. The car did not miss a beat and performs in my opinion as should.

Recent work:

Since I have bought the car it has had a service, oil change, new fronts brake discs & pads as well as being well looked after by myself.

Bodywork:

There is no rust underneath and the car is solid. Shines up really well and the paint work has retained its shimmer. The roof has no rips or tears and still looks a nice dark black colour. The wheels could do with a tidy but for age are nice. The new badges are £15 for a set on ebay.

Interior:

The interior is in really good condition for a 90s car and the leather looks well. This leathet problem on many of this model as they use hard leather and it tears easily, in this car there is no rips, not much fading and barely been sat on. The seats are comfortable.The carpets are in nice condition also and the dash has no defects. Has an M3 steering wheel fitted. However, i bought this car without a radio and have Pioneer which I need to retain so the car will come without a audio device.

Negative points (very few)

- There was an after market alarm which i disconnected as it was rubbish, however occasionally it turns both indicators on when the left indicator is pushed down. I think its a fuse, I don't imagine this costing much or being complicated to rectify and its only on occasion which is odd i know. .

- There is a scuff (see photos) on the drivers wheel are. Side swiped a post before I bought her, was going to get it done and would have if i was keeping. Again a minor repair for someone who can.


This is an older car so nothing is perfect but this car is genuine for age and would not take a lot to make it a show stopper.

I am aware of the cars value and have no rush to sell it as I am not going travelling until January. I am not using it much but milage may increase. At the moments its just hit the 94,000 mark.

I am reasonable and open to a sensible conversation in regards to offers but please. Its a good one and there is alot of old bangers about.

Many thanks for reading
