1991 BMW 3-Series

I have chosen to put up for sale or trade one of my favorite cars I've owned. This is a southern, rust free, all original body and paint (vin codes on every panel) 1991 BMW 325i. This one is special because instead of the fine but underpowered 2.5L inline 6, this has a 1999 3.2L M3 motor with only 72K miles installed in its place. The body started as a clean, accident free, southern car to be a top candidate for the swap. There is zero, yes zero rust on this car. This motor, with cold air intake, headers and stainless exhaust, and performance chip makes this motor sing of nearly 290hp. This makes the nearly perfect suspension realize its full potential.
Other important details on this car include5 lugconversion which includes a 318ti rear end with LSD and M3 brakes and front M3 spindles and brakes. For those who are unfamiliar with the5 lugswap, this has been done properly. Also make wheel choices almost endless with being able to accept the size of all BMWs from 1992+. With all this go, when you need to get this girl to slow, it will like NOW. No suspension will be complete without proper spring and struts, and this one has full coil overs front and rear with Eibach springs and Koni struts and shocks. While all apart, the entire suspension was rebuilt with TreeHouse Racing bushings.
While all the important performance parts are done, the interior left nothing out either. M3 Vader seats in black look right at home. Rear seats are perfect, new carpet and door cards look great as well. Small Sparco sport steering wheel is perfect for the quick responsive steering. Manual sunroof is just one less electronic item, and works perfectly. Aftermarket removable face stereo allows you to listen to tunes rather than the beautiful sound of the motor. Gauges work (though fuel gauge is sometimes fickle) and even the odometer is working. Power windows and door locks work with two remote key fobs.
Xenon headlights have been installed to allow you to see far off at night. All lighting is working. The front lower spoiler has been updated with a lower M-style, and is new with new oem clips to keep it secure. Lastly, 17in M3 Motorsports (original, not copies) wheels with Bridgestone 245/zr40s with tons of tread left (surprising to me as well that I have any left).
Picks? Oh with any older car, there will be a few things that add to the character, much like the scar from that spill on the motorcycle at 13, but that is another story. It is missing three interior pieces, nothing big, I have them and haven't installed them yet, Dash has a few cracks (hey its a southern car remember). The exterior has a couple very minor scratches, two or three little thin spots in the paint, and one small scratch and dent with touch up paint on the trunk (not big enough to repair, not small enough not to be there). Front plastic bumper cover has a small crack on the top near the license plate. Very minor stuff, but I am picky.
