E30 M20 325i engine & gearbox complete
I’m selling a complete engine and gearbox out of a 1990 325is. It has about 50K on it and runs very strong. Included with the engine is a box of misc. parts.

I can’t get pics for a few days but feel free to contact me or reply to this post. Please do not PM me because I never check it.

Price: Best Offer (no lowballs please but I am motivated to sell)

are you sure about the km's ??? 50,000km on a 13 year old car ? give me an idea of what you want...

I was told that the engine was re-built and that is the information I have to go on. The engine also has a Schrick cam which I forgot to mention in the first post. I am selling the whole thing AS IS but I have no feel for price because I have done no research on it. Maybe a good opportunity to scoop a deal.

so, you really dont even know if it runs ? in your first post you said it runs that what was told to you ? where did this engine actualy come from ?

Nuvolari 07-21-2003 06:22 PM

Let's try this again. I just pulled the engine from a car that I drove last week. The previous owner had the engine re-built about 50K ago. So to answer your question, yes it runs. The engine is from a 1990 325is. Hopefully this is clearer. In addition to this, the car also recently passed emissions which means the engine must be running ok.

since there is no warranty and no history on the motor (might be a paper weight) i will give you 200.00.....sorry if it seems low, but according to you "I have done no research on it" and "I was told that the engine was re-built and that is the information I have to go on".....

let me know.....
ps...i'm not trying to be a jerk, i would just like to know about something before i consider buying it...

jeremy 07-21-2003 06:28 PM

oh, why did you pull the motor >

Nuvolari 07-21-2003 06:29 PM

Thank you for the offer however I am cetain that this engine will bring more than $200.

The engine was removed because I decided to abandon the project and part out the car.

with the information given and not seeing it, you cant expect some pictures....and include close ups of the cylinder heads and oil pan etc etc... a vin number would help as well, so we can run it through car fax....

what are you looking to get (ballpark)>?

Nuvolari 07-21-2003 07:09 PM

are u gonna sell the body of the car?

Nuvolari 07-22-2003 11:27 AM

The body of the car is not to be sold. I am however selling a complete roll cage that was installed in the car. If you are building a track car this cage would cost you a fraction of having someone install it. I am open to offers but the cage cost me almost $3000 and has 0 km on it including NASCAR bars in the doors.
