FS: 1988 E30 325iS, $1850

1988 BMW 325iS, 346,000 km, 2 door Zinnabar Rot, 5 speed manual. VIN 4141892.
I have one too many E30s so I want to sell this one and I'd prefer to sell it to a BMW person.
I brought this car back from the dead last summer but this spring (2012) I lucked into a minty no-work-required 1986 European E30. Instead of restoring this car, I'm going to sell it and add cool toys to the Older Euro.

Bought this car spring 2011 for $1700, and I had a new floor (not the best job you ever saw) and rear shock tower (pretty decent, actually) welded in, and replaced:
the power steering rack,
the front control arms,
the front and rear rollbar links,
rear shocks and
the guibo,
the centre driveshaft bearing,
the vandalized left rear vent window, and
the hand brake cables (no, I had no fun doing that at all, thanks for asking),
brakes discs and rotors all round, and new rear calipers.
4 wheel alignment shows the frame is still square.
E-test passed spring 2011, good results, way better than PO got.

Replaced the carpet and some hydraulic actuators for seats and the hood, too.

The PO replaced the exhaust on the cheap so it only has a single outlet.
PO also replaced the front fenders.

This car has all the cool toys.
Factory (or BMW, anyway) 6-Disc trunk mounted CD changer,
13 button OBC which needs a light bar,
black leather sport seat interior with rear ski bag,
electric sunroof, windows, central locks, and an
uncracked dash.

Wheels are now bottle caps, but order now and you can have all four of the steelies with winter tires that it came with. Three of the steelies are actually round!
Smile nicely and offer me the asking price and you can have the basketweave in the spare tire well, and its centre cap and removal tool.

Anti-lock brakes need a new sensor.

New Price. $1600

This coming weekend I'm going to put this car up on kijiji for the price that I paid for it before I put all the new hardware in - $1700.

It has lots of cool iS stuff and I'd rather sell it to a BMW person, but I want it gone.

I'm not going to part it out, somebody else can do that.

SOLD, and mild frustration

Car is sold.

I wanted to edit the first post so that people wouldn't have to waste their time admiring a car that had already sold. Couldn't figure it out so I checked the FAQ, which says:
"To edit or delete your posts, click the [edit] button by the post you want to edit. If your post was the first in the thread, then deleting the post may result in the removal of the entire thread."

Ain't no [edit] button. Must have missed something. Anyway, Car is sold and thanks for your interest.

Always loved the 1988 is. First car I ever wanted back in the late 90's.

Saw one back in the 1990's, owned by a guy named Billy, slammed on some 17x7.5" ROH Astron, Ronal Centra wheels, turboe'd. That thing would beat everything back in the day ! Car was so nice !

Yeah, I'm kinda sorry to see it go. Beautiful car and even stock power with 345000 I should have been arrested every time I drove it.

Now I've got a Euro 320i (6 cyl) that's way slower but makes the right noises.

Oh well.
