Hello all,

Need to sell this car as my house has sold and I no longer have the room for the project.

1987 325is
2.5 I6
5 spd
368 XXX kms
Zinnoberrot (red)
Houndstooth interior
Power windows
Central locking
Power Sunroof

I purchased the car in November 10' as a winter beater and future resto project. I had looked at quite a few E30s prior to this one and was surprised at the condition of this one in comparison. I did not end up using it as a winterbeater as I had another car laying around so I haven't put much milleage on this at all. I am selling the car in slightly better condition than I got it.

The car had A/C from factory but the system was removed by the previous owner.

The Good:
The vehicle drives, it is also emmisions exempt
During the time I drove it it did not break down on me once
I completed the valve adjustments about a month ago
I have replaced the plugs with Bosch units instead of what was in there
The car definately has pep it just wants to keep pulling
The car starts first try each and every time, battery seems rescent
Overall, for its age, the car is in good shape, not perfect but as said I have seen worse... much worse.
This vehicle was used by the PO as a daily driver while commuting mainly on highways.

I know there are a few issues with the car, given it was/is winter I haven't had too much opportunity to work on it.

The Bad:
- d/s sport seat bolster is ripped
- I took off the shift boot as it was torn, did not get around to replacing it
- the shifter works but makes it hard to find some gears sometimes as the linkage is quite worn
- the car smokes, I believe this is due to internal motor wear but have not really diagnosed the issue. The vehicle is definately drivable.
- rear suspension d/s clunks over bumps (have not diagnosed the exact source)
- p/s whines for a couple minutes when starting the vehicle, I was adv by the PO that the system is leaking
- front IS valence has a chunk missing of the lower portion
- both foglights are smashed
- 1 Basketweave wheel hubcover is missing.

- Sunroof is bubbling, panel should be replaced
- loonie sized bubble on rear trunk lid
- Trunk Spoiler (plastic) clear coat is faded
- Couple quarter sized rust spots on the front p/s fender, not major
- fist sized dent on p/s door

As stated, few bugs but an awesome base for a project or even daily driver until it finally dies. This vehicle will need to be certified (i am not providing this), it will need tires (14") all around and possibly suspension components and brakes as far as I remember the PO telling me.

I also am including a set of 14" steelies with BMW hubcaps. They currently have worn winters mounted on them. The 14" basketweaves are mounted on the car currently.

To clarify, I am not happy selling this car. If I could I will keep it but I won't have any more room, this is my 3rd car as is.

My asking price is: $1900 OBO

I wish I had a spot to park this! I would grab it, as the pics look promising and not to mention a clean engine bay!

Best of luck selling this. I don't see why it shouldn't be gone fast!
