FS/FT: 1988 325ic RUST FREE

Recommended Posts

UPDATE: I have just installed the following:

-Euro front valance with rare Pfeba front air dam in great condition. I also picked up a nice set of front and rear chrome euro bumpers, full setup purchased from Levent at gutenparts

-Crack free mint dash

-New ebrake console from Bavauto

-New ZHP weighted shift knob

-New perforated leather shift boot

-Bavauto performance plug wire set

-New Bosch plugs

-Liqui-Moly Purple synthetic oil change and new filter

-Coolant flush with new coolant

Also available for the car is a like new set of staggered ESM's with like new Falken's.

I brought this car in from Arizona where it lived it's entire life, therefore is truly RUST FREE! I paid a pretty penny to purchase this car and have it sent over. The body and engine have roughly 220k on them but fortunately it was an automatic that was owned by a female, so chances are the engine was driven delicately...We then proceeded to do a full 5-speed swap and installed a low mileage manual trans with all new seals, fluids, bushings, NEW Clutch plate, pressure plate and flywheel, new clutch master and slave cylinders and we just did a fresh TB/ WP/ tensioner change. Also including the polished rocker cover shown.

The car runs great, and the body is absolutely RUST FREE, straight, and beautiful! The desert sun had beat the clearcoat pretty badly so we were prepping it for a full respray, and now it sits in 2k primer currently and is ready to be painted. It's a complete car, just partially disassembled for paint, but you will get everything for the car, full driveline is complete and installed, the car IS RUNNING AND DRIVING.

The front seats are pretty nice with only minor splitting of a couple seams on drivers seat, but rear seat leather is pretty rough. The convertible top is in good condition with only two small tears that can be easily patched but it will need a new sew in window

This is your chance to get one of the nicest e30 bodies I've found over the years at a fraction of the cost if I were to finish the car. The car is COMPLETE, and if you wanted to drive it as is it would take you half a day to re-assemble everything, or you could have it painted then re-assemble easily, the hard parts are already done for you.

I now have over $7,000. into this car...just over $8,500 if you include the staggered ESM's. I'm asking $7,000 obo w/ ESM's or $6,000 on the stock weaves. Will consider trade up or trade down of non-convertible daily driving vehicles.

For those of you unfamiliar with the value of a true rust free car in the northeast, please don't share your negative comments.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
