Plastic bumper swap it (It's a direct swap) and it's good. That kit is worth a good amount.

rudy has it right it still has pre facelift tail lights = probably not 88....and the plastic bumper conversion is not exactly a straight swap.

Definitely pre-88. Fender arches way too high. Since it only has a 325 badge, it might be just a 325e.

Personally if I were looking for an e30 now, I'd go for an '87 325is. I have a 88/01 which is subject to damn etest.

defenatly not worth it imo. If I was looking for a clean example e30. Id go check out that silver one with those sportmaxx rims! Thats clean, looks original! Can't remember whos selling it, but its more or less in the same value.

Those side markers are pre-1986... if anything, that's a 1984 or 1985. Oh, and it looks like a piece of crap. If they're going to claim that it's the cleanest in the GTA, the bloody antenna better damn well go all the way down!!
