1995 BMW 318i Touring

For those that read my posts, you know I’m a sucker for wagons. Especially rare ones and those that didn’t make it stateside. Here’s an interesting piece for sale up in Nova Scotia, an E36 Touring with the 1.9 liter, twin cam four cylinder.

The seller states:

You want an eye catcher on canadien or North American streets? This Euro Specs, 1995 BMW 318i Touring with the powerful 4 cycl. M43 Engine is then an automobile for you. This car is in an great condition. From its blue-green metallic exterior to its dark grey interior.

It wears very good 205/60/R15 tires on BMW alloy wheels, adding to the unique style that could only be BMW. A smooth-running and powerful 4cycl. engine with 115 hp and 1800 ccm can be found under the hood, mated to an Automatic transmission .

The difference is that this car isn´t so heavy. You can drive it around 6 – 8 Liter of Gas on 100 km distance. That will help you to save alot of money for gas. The odometer says ~ 168.000 kilometers.

There is no telling how hard it might be to import such a vehicle to the US, but if one thing is certain, Uncle Sam sure isn’t going to make it easy. For those living in Canada, this is a tasty number, if a bit overpriced. It looks to be mint, however, the engine and automatic transmission let this car down. Still, the E36 (and earlier E30) wagons are some of the best looking haulers of all time, from my vantage point.

    I scoured Euro sites for probably 3 months looking for low mileage E36’s to import and Mod,. I think you could could build a very sellable car. But what do you make? , 3.2 M3 power and running gear (Probably the cheapest platform to harvest performance parts from), Euro conversion or LS1 via an engineered kit, or Turbo 2.8 power . Great platform.

    Driving it As Is sounds like a good idea too.

    This is just begging for a turbo and a manual swap.
