Hi All,

I am selling my daily driver (owned since 2010), a 1985 e30 325e automatic, fully stock, AS IS with the following specs:

- US car with apprx 129k miles
- original polaris silver
- black sport interior leatherette (no rips, A1 cond)
- Automatic
- power windows, power sunroof
-Working AC
- original 2.7 ltr eta engine
- original spec 14 bmw alloy rims

* note 1: the hella euro smileys will not be included but can be sold with vehicle at additional cost, they are in great conditional and have had lamin-x film installed since day of purchase (used).

** note 2: as stated im selling the vehicle AS IS, it is not concours in anyway as i use it as my DD for work, and has been very reliable as well as being a great on gas (regular).

current issues with vehicle:

Automatic - as with all bmw autos, the safety neutral switch is funky, need to add slight pressure on auto stick to start vehicle.

Cluster - no matter how many times i reset the oil service indicator, after a few days it will light up again, onboard battery for this unit is obviously weak.

Brake lining light is stuck on, i have done a full rebuild with new pads and sensors on this vehicle about 1 yr ago but the light is still on, brakes work great its just an electrical issue.

Exhaust - getting louder, so i assume it needs to be replaced in the near future.

Oil drips - pin pointed it to the valve cover gasket, i have new gasket but havent installed it.

Oil pressure switch is faulty - i have new one but havent installed it.

Body - usual rust area on both lower front fenders near rocker panel (see pic)
- passenger rear fender has damage (PO incident) see pic.

Overall the vehicle is in great mechanical condition for its age, it is e-test exempt, and has never let me down. I am selling AS IS for $900.00 FIRM (hella euro smileys not included in that price), will not partout, and only local sale (hamilton/Burlington area). Please PM me if interested. thanks for looking!

Those bumpers are stupid looking. Looks like it belongs in a Carnival as a bumper car.

Wow that's real nice of you .. For that price I think the buyer can make do with diving boards, they're really not that bad and can be pushed in easily if the buyer shares your opinion

morning bump! Lots of pm's which is great but i need someone with cash in hand!

As for the euro smileys, looking for $300 firm but only if the buyer doesnt want them with the car.

I have the cash but no place to put it...i have three vehicles and only one parking spot. My E30 is 45 minutes outside of town! :(

You should really just part it! Hint hint...nudge nudge!

Well worth it. I'd buy it but my girlfriend would eviscerate me.

To the OP I wouldn't budge 1 dollar from your price. If someone tries to take it lower let them walk away.
