View Full Version : 1992 BMW 325IS AC Schnitzer Clone - Lots of Mods... $5500

Hi guys, it's been a while as life just never seems to slow down. I have recently moved to Dubai and as much as I love this car it is just not worth storing it and letting it sit.

No trades will be considered as it is not feasible for me

No Low balls as the price is FIRM (the car costs/owes me nothing)

No, I will not sell parts separately as this is a complete car!

Yes, viewings can be arranged in Peterborough. If you are serious about buying this car is worth the trip. A very good friend of mine/MAX member has all the paper work ready to go.

I shipped my truck over here but the ACS would not survive with no AC and wouldn't clear the speed bumps (If i can't drive it low I don't want to drive it! LOL)

Things to know:

There is no rust on this car, it is incredibly clean. Comes with paging Viper alarm system.Very reliable and very quick. I built the car in Jan/Feb of 2010 and drove the car until ~July 2010 and moved to Texas (the car was stored for 10 months).

24X,XXX km on the body of the car and has a CLEAN title, the fire happened in a driveway and there was no police report, no insurance claim. (Remote start and fuel leak)

I returned in May of this year and drove the car daily for 2 months. Replaced the tensioner pulley, accessory belt and battery. Here is a video of the first start up of the year. (No the car does not have cams, the idle needs to be bumped up a little)

The car won Runner Up in it's class in Performance World 2010 Custom car show and gets a lot of looks. All the parts on the car are authentic AC Schnitzer minus the front bumper which was replaced with a replica. You will be hard pressed to find an e36 in this condition with this many ACS parts.

Things to consider:

-Just passed e-test in June 2011 (still valid) and was safetied last year... So you will need a new safety. In terms of a safety the car will need a windshield to pass (crack along the bottom), horn doesn't work, and you will most likely need to raise the car up (coil over wrenches are in the trunk).

-Comes with 2 newer tires for the front (you can drive a few more months on the current ones) I would also get an alignment as I only ever did the poor mans alignment with a measuring tape with the car being so low!

-Clutch will need to be replaced at some point (occasionally slips in 3rd gear when driving very spiritedly.) Normal to medium driving there is no slipping what so ever, I rather someone be aware of this upfront as you probably wouldn't even notice when test driving.

-Engine will burn a liter of oil every 1500km. Doesn't smoke but it is noted. True mileage is unknown but compression was good and pulls hard. No coolant leaks and runs great. My theory was to drive it till it blew up and then 2JZ or blown 5.0 swap!

-CEL light is on for Voltage regulator. It will flicker on and off, this just happened this year after pulling it out of storage, no other codes.

-Only one side of the hood latch works due to a bad cable, it holds the hood down fine but you should know.

-Longer wheel bolts should be installed on the front wheels due to use of spacers (one bolt will not thread in the drivers side front wheel but will with a longer stud)

-Passenger side window switch has a bad contact and needs to be replaced as you need to keep pressing it, however does still operate the window.

-There is an AUX fan hooked up but it hot wired to a switch as a "quick fix" while I was home this summer, a proper relay/fuse should be installed.

-Heat shield is rattling a little while idling at a stop light, but due to the PITA it is to jack the car up I never had a chance to fix it.

-There is no windshield washer container as I wanted the engine bay clean, also no cruise control.

So there you have it, there are a few things to consider here but you are still getting a lot of car for the money. It is almost 20 years old!!! For being so the car gets compliments wherever I go and is a blast to drive.

$5500 FIRM.

Was a custom blend of a Dark Shadow Gray and Silver paints I had, I have extra I will provide the buyer.

*** Car may be at Bimmercruise, just waiting to hear verification from my friend if he is going to drive it up or not.
