GI: 1986 BMW 325e

So I'm possibly thinking about the idea of selling my 1986 325e 5 speed. I originally bought the car as a project car to work on over the summer. However, plans changed and things came up this summer leaving me with less time than I expected to do work on the car. Now with Sept fast approaching and the next stage of my life not settled (I might have to move around a lot for my job), I'm thinking it might be difficult for me to keep the car.

The car sat for a few years before I picked it up, but the engine runs perfectly. Since I bought the car, I replaced the timing belt and water pump, changed the oil, changed the fuel filter, and patched up a hole in the spare tire well with fiberglass.

Car still has original Burgundrot-metallic paint (that is peeling), and is in very clean condition with very very minor rust. Underneath, the car is also very clean. There is some cracking on the dash, and the driver seat has a pretty big gash. Otherwise, the interior is in very good condition.

The engine is in perfect working order, and starts first try, every time. The car went through a safety pre-inspection, and the only major repair needed is the brake hard lines need to be replaced. They are currently still holding pressure, but from the looks of it they are rusty and about to go. I drove the car back from Hamilton to London when I bought it to prove that it is in perfect working order. Currently 214k KM on the vehicle.

I will also include a bunch of spare parts/upgrades including:
- Authentic Racing Dynamic front air dam
- MTech1 wheel (currently on the car)
- E36 M3 steering rack
- Piles of spare parts that I acquired
- Brand new stainless steel braided brake flex lines

I'm still not 100% on selling it but figured I would post it and see what the reaction is. I'm thinking $2000 OBO

Depends on the rust situation. If the jack points behind the front wheels are solid, the rocker panels especially just in front of the rear wheels are solid, and the tail area around the lights and licence plate lights is hole free, then selling for 1500 shouldn't be a problem.

Go buy a 4$ can of silicone and clean up that engine bay a bit, then take some new pics. A few hours, and 20$ worth of tidying up may be all it needs for someone to make a decision.

Good luck.
