What would you pay for this E30?

Hey guys,

Looking into another E30 and thought I'd give you the details of one which someone through a friend of mine might sell me. If you guys could give me an idea of the Value that would be awesome.

-1987 325i Coupe
- around 200k
- Very good in terms of rust, absolutely minimal, no surface rust visible on body either
- Well maintained good shape in terms of suspension, engine, all that
- Sport black leather seats , interior is in decent shape not mint either

Also has some goodies like aftermarket springs/struts, exhaust, 3.73 Diff, chipped


Let me know what you guys think, I was thinking about $4000 but maybe I'm off.

So you are keeping the one you have or have you sold that already? I thought you were after an E36/46....

Pictures would help a lot, but $3700-4000 sounds fair... I think.
But I am shooting this completely blind...

What is the suspension set up do you know? Eibach, H&R, Billies? When was it added?
What will it need to safety it? How was maintenance on it? Records available? Accidents? Mileage verified? I only saw one that wasn't rolled back for sale (and I have that now) in 2 years.

Something to compare it to... http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/b...rade/596081543

I have decided to keep my E30 for now.. I guess its too fun a car to leave right before summer lol. I've also been having troubles finding a clean e36, and most the Low Km E46s are simply out of my budget.

They are Koni struts/shocks, and he will be selling it safetied. Hes also got some records but supposedly has kept the car quite up to date on maintenance.

Without looking it over I cant tell more tbh.
Not a fan of chipping either. But that's just me.

Is there an asking price in his/her mind?

Yeah, $5K sounds a little rich. With the price of gas these days, chipping is a bit of a negative when you talk about the M20s. I have an Eta with over 320K km, and I still average 35-40 MPG.
