Anyway. Just wanted to throw that out there.
The only way I would pay that much for a 318iS is if it had 20,000 original miles and has a fresh profile gasket. When you talked to him was he wearing pajamas? Because he's dreaming.
Keep looking. Yes, the car is probably worth around 5K if it's your typical 318iS that has the mileage and battle scars of a 23+ year old car.
The E30 318iS is a decent car. A 325i, in any trim level, is better.
