Alright guys, don't get excited...Just wanna get an idea on how much my car might be worth. I might even have to sell it, which would really suck but I hope I can screw the government before it can screw me.

The Car

1990 325I
2 door
5 speed
2nd owner
280 k on the car
maintainance record available until 230 k from budds bmw
very clean chassis


The Mods

2.7 liter M20
Motor rebuilt, just broken in...no millage
Custom Turbo setup capable of 800+ hp
Low millage tranny
Pretty much everything has been redone its going to take a while to post all the mods.

The car is gonna be tunned for 15 psi of boost for daily driving, so it should be very close to 400whp. 450+ tq

I wanna get a ball park idea on how much I should be able to get for the car, my guess is anywhere between 12-15 thousand depending on how much money is put into it at the time of sale.

although the car is very clean the front end needs a fresh coat of paint, I'm gonna be painting the whole car, most likely in stock color ( black )

here are a few pics

The first Picture is from last year, the other two pictures and the interior picture is from a few years ago.

Thanks man

90% of the setup was done by myself encluding all of the labour. There is well over 5gs into the turbo setup and that's just in parts.

I hope that becomes a possibility, So far it doesn't look too good.

I drove it one day to break the motor in but I had the wastegate off so NO BOOST...:(

Why...Mustangs run a 4 bolt pattern, you don't see their wheels flying off.
