Original Owner: 1991 BMW 318is E30

The E30 generation BWM 3-series is starting to turn the page from depreciated junk to expensive collectable. The M3 version made that leap a few years ago, but prices for the basic 4-cylinder 318 and 6-cylinder 325 haven’t been that bad…but I do expect that to change as the rusty examples get crushed and the nice examples get restored. This next E30 is a low end 4-cylinder model, but it is a two door, manual gearbox, and is sold by the original owner. Find this 1991 BMW 318is offered for $6,200 in Concord, CA via craigslist.
