FS: 1997 328ic Black on Black Great Condition

Hi guys,

I'm selling my 97 328ic. I bought it a year ago from a mature couple (lady driven as her partner didn't know how to drive standard) who owned the car for over 8 years - i can look up the exact years if it's imp. It is a Canadian car and hasn't been involved in any major accidents (I think there was a minor bumper hit on one of the fenders which the previous owner got fixed). In my ownership, I gave the car to a mechanic and someone hit it slightly on the fender and the mechanic got it repaired which meant installing a new front left fender (ps i looked up this mechanic on maxbimmer). Since he was nice enough to get it fixed, I'm not naming him. I have pictures of the damage that I can show when someone shows interest (it was a cosmetic and minor damage).

Ok - so here are the details:

- 217,000kms, manual 328ic M sport package
- Car located in downtown toronto
- lots of work done by previous owner plus I did a clutch change and a/c fan fix in my ownership other than regular maintenance
- black on black (still looks really nice - people who don't know bmw's think its newer than a 97)
- I use a tape aux to connect my iphone and sound system works fine
- Auto Retractable roof works fine (needs a slight push to one of the bars when putting the top down but that's not a problem at all, I just do it while sitting in the car, no need to get out. Also this is how i bought the car)
- Mechanically the car is in great shape, steering isn't lose, gears don't stick and takes corners beautifully

Asking $6,500 firm (I'll get it certified and e-tested. And I'm taking the car to get it checked in the next week or two for a couple of things that I have identified, so I'll be handing over the car in good condition)


So that's it guys, let me know what you guys think and PM me if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the interest. I'm not interested in a trade at the moment, otherwise perhaps we could have worked something out. I have never driven an e30 before but I'm sure its a fun car!

Why do some of the headrests appear to have orange stitching?

Hmmm interesting point! I never noticed the difference. Maybe the camera didnt catch the other headrest stitching properly. I really have no idea. Ill check and let you know if there is a difference. Or maybe the front two were swapped by mistake and both put on the left side by the previous owner (again, ill have to contact the previous owner if you really want to know). I'll check the next time I sit in the car.

Btw guys, price is negotiable within reason. I am getting married so looking for a quick sell (I guess that's not happening given the low interest in the car :/ ) but anyway that's the idea... Need the money. Will go for a 4 door auto bimmer after the wedding. Too bad I can't enjoy this for longer.

If anyone's interested, now is the best time to buy to enjoy summer/fall.

So I checked... the orange stitching on the front two headrests is on the outer side (must have been part of the m-sport package trim, not really sure).. so both headrests have it. I didn't check the rear seat as the top was up and I actually forgot but will check it today/tomorrow.

Price drop to $5700
