1990 BMW 3-Series

Recently imported from EU on 25 year rule, legal both EPA and DOT. Finished in Diamantschwarz Metallic, 1990 BMW E30 324TD Touring. Well equipped for Euro model, Italian market, comes with A/C that actually works and appear to have been upgraded to new gas, Power steering and power front windows, power locks. There is no apparent rust. Looks dry and clean underneath. If not familiar with those engines, M21 was very popular in Europe, aspirated and turbo version. Unlike other period diesel engines this motor runs much smoother and quieter, yet still quick and economical. US market has seen it in 1984 and 1985 BMW 524td, sadly only as automatic, as well as Lincoln continental MKVII of same vintage and some Vixen motor homes. Based on M20 engine but with much stronger internals.

Shows 272k kilometers witch loosely translates into 169K miles. Odometer and speedometer are in working order. Engine starts right up, smooth and no hesitation.

I have had replaced few things on this car, as I felt car would benefit from. Rear end sub-frame bushings have been replaced, right side rear wheel bearing, rear brake rotors, pads, e brake shoes, front rotors and pads, front brake rubber hoses, Valve cover gasket and injector return lines have been also replaced due to age. Engine is dry and free of any leaks, so is the rest of the car. Timing belt was done not long ago, all other belts appear new or recent. New tires have been installed as the old tires have aged. Factory BMW 14" wheels. Also comes with set of 15" winter wheels on aluminum rims.

Interior has been recently re-upholstered, and so was headliner. Those are not seat covers!

Run drives handles excellent, smooth ride, nothing bangs, pretty quiet, shifts smooth and effortlessly, good power, excellent fuel mileage.

There is few imperfections as of right now, Driver side rear power lock doesn't work, will probably need actuator, rest of the car locks does work just fine. Fog lights are there just for show, not hooked up. Rear wiper motor appear to be no good, didn't investigate further, however it is available on eBay and elsewhere for about $30 ish, RPM gauge is not operational. Radio works but not the greatest sound, could use upgrade. I'm sure there is another thing or two but cant recall anything else as of right now.
