PBMW BMW e30 320i (318is) (with more pics)


 1990 BMW E30 Race Car


318is converted to M20 6 cylinder 2.0 built to PBMW/Future Classics spec and MSA blue book regs. 


Owned by me for 14 years, originally as my road car before being converted.  Has never been raced, only used for two track days as part of the development shakedown. At this point new suspension was fitted and set up before the car was put into storage after starting a family.  As I will not be racing for the foreseeable future the time has come to sell.  Please note the car has been lovingly built to a high standard by myself an Automotive Engineer and BMW enthusiast for racing, it has not been thrown together.     



Good, damage free, condition body in original Brilliant Red - No rust in rear arches or sills just small amount on rear valance.  Bonnet has had washer jets re-routed to screen vents to allow for quick removal.  Only criticism is a small patch of rust on rear valance and bonnet has a dent from falling over when propped up in garage.
