1991 BMW 325i Convertible Search



Gents,

My Name is Keyur Patel. I'm new to this forum. Was wondering if I could get help from the community.

In 2010 I bought my first E30, it was a 1991 BMW 320i convertible with a 2.5L motor swapped in. Gunmetal grey with upgraded driver and passenger seats from a newer 3 series and a Magnaflow exhaust. it had an alpine stereo, short shifter and a leaky soft top. I kept the car for 2 years and was forced to sell it due to finances. The car was my BABY. I'm technically inclined but not an advanced car tech or anything, but had a real appreciation for this car, kept it clean, had fun with it, and was sad to see it go in 2012.

I'm posting because I've been looking for my car for some time to try and buy it back. I have no idea if the buyer at the time has resold it, all I can remember is I drove it to his house somewhere in North York. I lost his contact info but still have the VIN#.

Through Ontario's online drive clean records site I was able to find out where the car was last e-tested (North York at Echo Auto Group in April of this year). Seems creepy that I found all of that but its all completely legit. I guess I'm just a little obsessed with getting it back.

If anyone here knows about this car (or is the owner of this car) please let me know. I'm now in a position where I can afford to keep this car again. Anyone else that's reading this, let me know if there's anything else I can do to locate my car. I was 22 when i sold it and am kicking my self in the ass for letting it go. A few pics are attached, let me know if anyone knows anything about this beauty or if you've even seen it around the GTA. Posting here is a long shot but I thought I'd give it a try as I'm out of options. Thanks in advance for your help! Excited to see the resources this forum may offer. - KP

P.S I apologize in advance if you are the current owner and didn't want pictures of your car posted.

Yes, or on Facebook and/or LinkedIn. I was able to find every past owner of my Alfa Spider that way going back to its original purchase in 1975.
