View Full Version : New E30 in the garage!

It's a 1989 325i.72,650km!
Original paint, working A/C, LOW km's... No rust (none!!!), No cracks in the dashboard, No stone chips on the hood, No sandblasted headlights, No cracked fog lights, no ripped seats, no tools missing from the tool kit! The only thing that doesn't look quite right is the steering wheel that I put on it... it's a little worn, but the original is that all-plastic four spoke peice of crap. I'm planning on getting it recondition and polished up before the winter. This car looks like it's never seen winter, and has probably never seen a grain of salt either. It's a canadian car, and as far as I know, it has had 2 previous owners. Would you believe that the lisence plate lights aren't even rusting out? This has forced the E34 out onto the driveway with the old '88 E30, to share the garage with the cabrio.

Hoo-lee crap ..............that's mint. Nice find. $8K.............. whatever, it's just money. Honestly, say you bought something for $4K............ and then had to get it painted and fix rust, etc, etc. $8K or much more in no time. Two thumbs up............ nice find.

Yup, it's auto, still shifts nice and smooth too. There are no plans for modding it, it's going to stay stock. This car even has what looks like an original BMW battery in it. I don't have any underneath pics yet, but I'll go get some... here's a few more in the meantime.

Nice clean car. Here's a shot of the 91 we picked up for my daughter a couple of weeks back. 188k, one owner, interior is mint, some surface rust on bottom of drivers door and side mirror. Seems to run very well.

I saw that one on Autotrader for $4400 or something right? I was going to go see it but was out in Markham, and I never got around to it... did you get the price down to $4000?

I've got 3 E30's in my driveway, and I've had 2 others, and I've never had those tools because I don't think they apply to any of the E30's I've owned. What tools go there?

Yes, the garage selling it are friends of mine and I thought they had sold it a couple of months back until I saw it in the Autotrader. I got it for what they paid on trade plus repairs that had to be done - front control arm, exhaust, oil pan gasket - around $3300.

Not bad, not bad at all.
