FS. Its official

Alright guys, the time has come to let her go. I have owned the car for over 5 years and its been a blast driving it specially after the single turbo setup but now priorities have shifted so its time to say goodbye.

I'm sure a lot of you guys are familiar with the car and the amount of work that has gone into it but here is a not so quick run down of the car.

The car is a 1990 325 I , I bought the car in early 2003 from a friend who bought it for him self after looking for one for about 3 years but had to leave the country. At the time it was probably one of the cleanest e30s in town but now its starting to show her age on the surface.

The chassis is very clean. the only rust are is one corner of the battery tray. Everything after the front fenders is clean, the hood has some rust so does the sunroof panel ( I have a new one ). The car has never been in any accidents.

Here is a list of the things that were done under 10k ago.


Main bearings and bolts
Rod bearings and bolts
Piston rings
Head bolts
All seals and gaskets
Turbo back 3inch exhaust with Magnaflow muffler, high flow cat and tips
Timing belt
Water pump
Clutch
Transmission
Oil cooler and lines
Engine mounts
Transmission mounts
Rear shock mounts
All turbo related components
MS and wiring

Here is a list of things that were done in the last few years.


Bilsien shock front and back
Springs (Eiback)
Short Shifter (B&M)
Wheels and tires

Here is a list of things that are needed

The emergency brake system is not working, it needs the rear cables and shoes.
Driver side front wheel bearing.
Rear sub frame bushings.

The car was dyno tunned at Tag Race Craft right after the break in, it put down 330whp and 325wtq, it was also street tunned extensively for good daily driving.

It also ran a 13.3 @ 113 mph at TMSP last month.

The car is an absolute blast to drive and its not easy letting it go but for now this is the right thing to do.

I have a ton of extra parts that come with the car as well, including a set for 4piston calipers, cylinder head, stock intake manifold ect.

Now for the price. I realize it would be unrealistic if I ask for every penny I have put into the car, not to mention the amount of labor I have put into it so keeping that in mind I'm gonna start with an asking price for $ 7800 which I think is a fair price.

You can get in touch with me by PM or my email address waleed_sadaqat@hotmail.com or by phone @ 647-448-3166

Thanks dude, actually the whole car doesn't really need to be painted, just the hood and fenders would do, unless you want it looking perfect.
As far as building the car goes, there is more then just the money that goes into the car, the proccess of gathering all the parts and then putting it all together and finally making sure everything is working the way its supposed to be. To me that is worth alot more then just the money invested.

I am using the car as a daily driver right now, I drive about 100kms back and forth to work everyday. The cluster just hit 300k recently. I see no reason why It wouldn't make it.

Beauty Marks.. I like that

I am actually surprised at how little response I have gotten from here. I thought the price would start a bidding war..

I have a couple of intrested buyers but both of them ouside of the max cummunity, one is actually of the country all togather, but I would much rather sell it locally, gives me a chance to take it for a ride once in a while and be able to buy it back if I wanted to..
