e-test exempt due to age...

I am being honest about this car...I'd rather tell you what is up - up front, then instead of all of us wasting each other's time. You are more than welcome to bring a mechanic friend with you to check the car out. Couple things..

I will not take a trade - there is nothing right now that I am looking for.
I am not hurting for cash - so no lowball offers.
I cannot deliver the car to you to the GTA, however I have a friend who owns a towing company where I live, or you can come down and I will give you the VIN no. beforehand so you can add it to your insurance, we go to the MTO together to make the transfer and you get a licence plate and a temp sticker and you drive it back to Toronto or where ever you are from.

The car is a 1987 bmw 325is, automatic, 2 door coupe, black, 206K all original.
But because I am impatient and mechanically challenged I went out and bought another 1987 BMW 325i for several thousand dollars more and I was going to keep this one as a spare/parts car but I am having an issue with storage, they do not allow cars being stored where I live. Thought I had the storage issue solved but turns out I don't. This car cost me $1650 about a month and a half ago and that's what I am looking to get, nothing more nothing less.

The car starts up and drives fine. It has a bit of an idle issue from time to time -lets say if you are changing from drive to reverse when it warms up..sometimes it wants to stall...thats an idle control arm or box issue...cheap to fix.. You should put a reasonator/cat on it...for a more quiet ride..the previous owner put straight pipes on. Some people like that...I personally don't. Estimated cost for the idle issue box and a new (used) exhaust is about $500.

Typical e30 stuff again...the car needs drivers side lock and passenger side window fixed. Fan blower doesn't work on 1, 2, 3 but works on setting 4. Check ABS/Brake light is on. Dashboard has a few cracks. Drivers side seat has a few rips. This car has a new gas tank and the radiator seems newer.

Please keep in mind, the e30's (1983 to 1991 Bmw 3 series) have an issue with rust by the plate lights, rust on top of the sunroof, rust by the jack lift points underneath and by the rocker panels, This car doesn't have any of those issues and that is rare to find on these 80's 3 series BMW's. The body and paint are MINT. The engine and transmission seem solid. Most of the mechanics on this car are good except for the idle issue. It has nice low profile rims and tires -brand TSW 205-45-17.

My price for the whole car $1650

What does it cost for a front spoiler like the one on your car?

10-22-2012, 11:15 AM
5-lug conversion or adapters?

Are you referring to the spoiler? Are they not mounted with plastic brackets. What are the 5-lug conversion?

10-22-2012, 12:25 PM
the rims are a 4 bolt universal, and the car's lug nut pattern are stock 4 bolt...4x100 is it?
What you are seeing is the cap cover for the rims that make it look like 5 bolt. That confused me too when I bought the car.

I think he means the Valence or the front lip?...I have no idea to be honest...it came with the car like that.

Yeah, I was wondering about the cap cover.
