Hey all,

Due to frustrations, time and potential moving logistics I am throwing up my 1992 ACS for potential sale to the right buyer. This car as some of you know was featured on a LIVE build I performed in early 2010 on my website www.theinfamousproject.com The car then placed Runner Up in its class at Performance World Custom Car Show at Toronto's International Center. Althought, not a TRUE ACS car, 90% of all ACS parts are authentic and it is very clean.

****The bad. My frustrations with this car is that it is not driveable above 2000rpm. There is some sort of chain lash noise that I have played around with too many parts to deal with and in the end I could just swap a new motor in much less time. The car does start, idle and drive below 2000 rpm in all gears. So depending on what you're looking for, you could bring it a shop and get it fixed or if you provide me a motor I can install it, or you can take it as is and do as you please. Secondly, the transmission does work in all gears fine, but when warm is hard to change gears (doesn't grind, just physically hard to get into gear)

Ideally, the new owner would source out an S52 motor/ ZF tranny and be on their way to happiness :D

The GOOD:

-1992 325IS body with 240k on it. No accidents. No rust.
-All ACS parts are genuine unless otherwise specified.

Yes this car was on fire at one point. But it still carries a CLEAN Title. Plus its a great story to tell your friends. You can find my restoration thread on here somewhere. Everything has been replaced and is fully functional. There are no smells, no issues, nothing.

-$6500. AS-IS. Who knows maybe I will be famous one day and the car will be worth 65k! HAHAH

*** Please keep in mind that this is a feeler thread, so in other words, I am not looking for OFFERS below what I am asking. I am on the fence as to if I will just say "woo-sah" step back take a moment and correct the issue and drive the car, or if I will just sell it.

I have no idea what so ever! Shifts sweet when cold tho... Tried new fluid etc and no luck?! Maybe the synchros get heat affected?

Thanks, I haven't opened it up and probably won't get a chance to. I am pretty confident it was the chain guides... Not sure what else it could have been.

OMG OMG OMG Don't buy from me I am a scammer.. I totally disclosed this car had burnt to a crisp and I am trying to sell it! I even have documented pictures and videos of everything I have done to it.. Don't buy it!!!

For anyone else interested in the car:

Now has an AUX fan wired up, O2 sensor has been relocated to a better position for better idling. Still needs a hood release cable from what i understand. Has been documented to burn a quart of oil every 1500km's or so.. But still runs strong.

If anyone is interested my friend (and fellow max member) back home has been driving it daily as he has needed a car to drive. He can arrange a viewing if interested. I cannot bring this car to TX as the roads would destroy it and have no place to store it either.

$6200...

*Please note any talk of me being a horrible seller or potential scammer will be reported to the mods. If you are serious and have a concern, have the car inspected first, it's that simple. Otherwise have a look at all the pics and vids of the car from before to after.

I've known chris for a long time, as have many other people on these boards. He's not a scammer, and he isn't going anywhere. (figuratively at least, i think he's already moved:P)

LOL. It does burn some oil, not sure if it is a full quart but it definitely needs to be topped off once between oil changes. It doesn't blow all kinds of smoke or anything. But I won't lie the car is driven spiritedly and loves the Bimmercruises etc.

Really tho, we're talking about a car that should be getting an S52 another swap to compliment the rest of the car! With that said, the current engine still runs strong i assure you that and even if you left it alone it would last for a while yet.
