Putting this up to test the waters, could really use a wagon for work / day to day. I intended to use this car as driving school / track day fun car but had a crazy summer and never got around to it. All the aftermarket parts on the car have less than 10,000km's on them. Mileage is high but almost every wear part on the car, engine / suspension / brakes has been replaced. I bought all OEM parts, was building this car the right way. Car is very quick and a blast to drive, doesn't miss a beat.

Asking $7500


1986 325, Bronzit-Beige 2 door, 335,000km's.

-m52b28 obd2
100% Rebuilt with oem components, m52b28, m3 cams, m50 intake, TRM tuned ecu for above mods, dr vanos kit, Ebay headers, 3" exhaust - magnaflow cat to borla muffler to magnaflow muffler. Engine has less than 10,000km's on it. Dyno'd 210hp/190tq. New clutch at time of engine build, new sealed battery in trunk.

-h&r race on bilstein sports, new strut mounts, IE street camber plates, m3 offset CAB's, lemforder control arms, rear strut reinforcement plates, convertible front sway bar with m3 style mounting tabs, Ix rear sway, subframe with welded camber adjustment, new subframe bushings


-Hawk HPS Brake pads on Brembo Blanks, rebuilt front calipers, Stainless braided lines, m5 master cylinder, front brake hard lines are new, rear brake hard lines are new as well as most of the middle of the car.

-Wheels are unknown mesh's which look great, tires are done though.

-Dash has no cracks and is perfect!!! mtech1 wheel

The bad - Full disclosure
-Body is far from mint, has the usual rust on the rockers, bit of rust on the windshield a pillar.
-Needs a wheel bearing
-exhaust leaks a bit under the cabin and it's loud.
-interior is from a sedan so the seats don't flip forward and the fronts are in pretty rough shape

Wheel bearing has been replaced, as well as shifter gasket installed so its much quieter in the cabin. If this doesn't sell I'll happily keep it.
