E30 Turbo

Alright guys, don't get excited...Just wanna get an idea on how much my car might be worth. I might even have to sell it, which would really suck but I hope I can screw the government before it can screw me.

The Car

1990 325I
2 door
5 speed
2nd owner
280 k on the car
maintainance record available until 230 k from budds bmw
very clean chassis


The Mods

2.7 liter M20
Motor rebuilt, just broken in...no millage
Custom Turbo setup capable of 800+ hp
Low millage tranny
Pretty much everything has been redone its going to take a while to post all the mods.

The car is gonna be tunned for 15 psi of boost for daily driving, so it should be very close to 400whp. 450+ tq

I wanna get a ball park idea on how much I should be able to get for the car, my guess is anywhere between 12-15 thousand depending on how much money is put into it at the time of sale.

although the car is very clean the front end needs a fresh coat of paint, I'm gonna be painting the whole car, most likely in stock color ( black )

here are a few pics

The first Picture is from last year, the other two pictures and the interior picture is from a few years ago.

Thanks man

90% of the setup was done by myself encluding all of the labour. There is well over 5gs into the turbo setup and that's just in parts.

No! We don't want you to sell it, finish it and drive it for a summer first.

I hope that becomes a possibility, So far it doesn't look too good.

I drove it one day to break the motor in but I had the wastegate off so NO BOOST...

Why...Mustangs run a 4 bolt pattern, you don't see their wheels flying off.
