View Full Version : FS: 325is

03-01-2004, 07:12 PM
Hey guys,

Came across this e30 and bought it, as I thought it would be good for an autox racecar, but I've realized I have neither the time nor funds to complete it.

87 325is
-230k (STRONG car)
-power roof/locks/windows/mirrors
-a/c blows cold
-full onboard computer
-mag wheels
-just aircared yesterday, passed with flying colours
-2.5L I6, great torque and good power; good on gas too, get about 550kms per tank.

This is not a perfect car, it's 16 years old, and is priced accordingly. It has a tiny bit of surface rust, and the stereo is intermittent, but other then that is great! It is mechanically very strong, the body is in fair shape, and is easily the weakest elemnt of the car. One taillight is also cracked. Everything electrical works well.

A perfect one would be worth $7995, I'd like what I paid for it... $2800.



Located in Vancouver, BC; has spent most of its life here. I can take photos of any element that a serious buyer needs to see.

Shipping to Toronto is $610 + tax by open car rail.

I can be reached at (604) 418-3781.

the day a 325iS gets 550KM a tank, is the day, i will dress up in tights.....:P

Terry, I regularly get over 500km. 550 wouldn't be hard at all. Here's one of my better averages, over one of Spud's cruises. I reset it at the beginning and that was when we were almost home. *th-up*

03-01-2004, 07:24 PM
how do u make the thing give u an average of ur hole trip. mine only shows ur consumption at the current time...

03-01-2004, 07:27 PM
i drive 99.9% highway, and i've driven this on more than a few days ( i commute 2 hours a day on the highway... 200km ish) and i get 550km with astonishing regularity.

edit- get ready to get in tights bitch ;)

Oh man, Terry, you've just been owned twice. Hehehe!

how big is the tank on a 325is? on my eta I get about
8 - 9 L/100km depending on driving....but I've gotten as good as 7.5 on long highway roadtrips, I wish I had that fancy onboard computer....I have to calculate everytime I stop at the pump.:(

03-02-2004, 03:01 AM
no, hwy only dosnt count. its city that counts, BUDDY!

03-02-2004, 04:16 AM
dude ,I dont think anyone from Ontario will go overe there to check her out. plus he has to pay to go there to pay for shiping .Once you get it off traint it will need some cash to pay to tow bit to garage where safty and Emm is fone.
Till you pay all that you can get nice bimmer here in ontaria.

Just my 0000.2 cents.
Good luck with sale.

03-02-2004, 08:21 AM
I'd buy, but it's an auto, auto = too much work for me to convert...

and i'm not expecting someone to come out to vancouver to see the car- this is a $2800 e30, not a $25,000 m3. it would be pretty easy for a buyer to buy a car like this over the net, as i mentioned i dont mind taking photos of whatever the buyer wants.

ops sorry,I tryed to reply fast.

I mean,it will cost some cash to tow the car from train and to bring it to the shop. Before you insure it ,the car will need to be saftied and emmision tested.

03-03-2004, 06:10 AM
well it's aircared here, so i cant imagine e-testing being a problem.

03-03-2004, 06:19 AM
well I dont think that will metter here in Ontario...
To get ack on topic ,I think it is fair on your car plus that is
bc car so less chences to be very rusty!

03-04-2004, 02:40 AM
If it was an 88 5 speed i'd buy it.

Good luck with the sale.
Bumped for ya.

whats the dif between the 87 and 88?

03-04-2004, 11:47 PM
The 88+ cars got larger tail lights and the plastic bumpers. IMO it changes the the look of the car totally.
