View Full Version : FS: 1989 BMW E30 - Parts car or Fixable........you decide!

10-30-2007, 12:14 PM
Hey everyone,

I bought this car with the intention of parting it out, but it does have a strong body with minimal rust and it is perfect for anyone who wants to do a motor swap.

Problem: The car has a snapped timing belt. Happened while doing about 60km/hour so the motor is toast. It means that at the least, there was piston to valve contact. Best Case Scenerio, you need new vavles or a used head. (among, headgasket job, headbolts, etc.)

Worst Case, there is a hole in the piston. Engine needs a rebuild, or find another engine.

m20b25s are pretty reasonabily priced, but with labour it adds up. (Thanks Trev *th-up* )

Good News: Lots of good parts on the car. Tires are almost brand new, US Ellipsoid headlights, rust free body panels, brakes recently done, etc...

If anyone is interested in parts or the whole car shoot me a pm and we can talk price. If i see that this will be only a parts car I will make a price list for all the parts in the next day or so......

Here are some pix:

The car is completly stock.

The intake manifold and valve cover is painted black and looks clean.
Pix of the engine will be up later today.

Update: Car was about to be sold but the deal didn't go through.

So if i dont receive a reasonable offer by this time next week for the whole car I will part it out and add it to my collection of parted e30's sitting in my storage yard.

Ball park price now is a grand seriously..............

so the only problem is the blown motor??
i already have a solid e30 motor.
all i do it put it in, and WALA no problems with anything else right?

Yea, basically thats it in a nut shell. the car is solid. I already mentioned previously all the work done to it before the timing belt broke.

I might pull it in on monday and fix it myself and sell it as a running car, let me know if your interested still.
