S52 e30

For sale is my 1987 BMW E30. Started out as a 325e. This has been my weekend toy for some time and I am thinking it's time to start a new project.

The bad:

373000 on body. Paint looks good but is in no way show quality.

It's not perfectly clean underneath. Acceptable but it's age is showing in the usual spots.

Windshield is cracked (not in drivers view) but I would recommend getting it replaced.

Speedo works when it wants too.

The stuff that makes this car a weapon:

-S52 ~170xxx km. Doesn't burn a drop of oil, been dead nuts reliable.
