1992 BMW 3-Series1992 BMW 325iC that has had the nice and smooth, but under powered 2.5L motor and replaced with a 1999 BMW M3 (S52) engine putting out about 260HP. This motor makes this chassis a dream to drive, plus the top down is a blast. All this was done in the past several years, and all professionally installed by one of the top e30 swap experts on the east coast.
The swap sourced a 1999 BMW M3 Motor with 120k on it, then rebuilt it to make sure it would be perfect on the install. Have a stack of receipts and pictures of the motor being built up. All was new at installation 3 yrs ago. At the time, new clutch & flywheel, Mishimoto aluminum radiator, all new hoses, rear diff all rebuilt with 3.25 LSD, A/C lines, front end all rebuilt with new bushings, tie rods, coilover shocks, and new wheels. The previous owner spared zero expense to make it 100% correct, over $17,000 in just the swap not including the purchase of the car.
Inside the interior is in excellent shape, with new carpet installed in the past few years, seats look good, top is like new, and included is the rare and highly sought after hardtop. Dash is free of cracks, stereo is nice and recently installed. Added feature ofhaving cold a/c makes this a dream to drive in any weather. New battery and recent oil service. The XXR wheels are agreat compliment to the sporty and veryfast nature of this car. Tires are nearly new with less than 2k miles on them. All replacement parts such as Euro clock and M3 gearshift are OEM parts. Again, the prior owner whom directed the build spared zero expense.
I have had a number ofthese swapped e30cars over the years and this is one of the bestoverall examples I have owned. Prior owner whom had it built moved to NYC and could nottake it with him, but I rescued it from under cover. Only 3-4k miles are on this car since built and it pulls quick and very hard! The fresh rebuild and tune kit makesthisrocket ship that will put a smileon your face as quickly as it gets to redline.
I would love to say this car is perfect! As with any car that is more than a few months old, and this being 24 yrs old, it has a couple minor flaws. First, in one of the pictures, I knocked off a piece of body trim, so you will see it without it re-installed. It will be fixed prior to delivery. Second, the title is a rebuilt title. I have a complete Carfax on the vehicle which backs the prior owners description, that the car was stolen at one time in its life and the insurance company "salvaged" the car with only interior and radio missing. During the install of the S52 motor, new carpet was installed and the remains of broken glass was found under the carpet. Prior owner bought the car with a clean title, but when re-titling it in his home state, CT, the rebuilt history was discovered and the title got branded at that time. All body panels are VIN coded to the car VIN, so I can confirm it was not due to accident. Carfax shows theft history. Everything works on the car, tracks dead straight, and nothing is amiss.
I love these cars, but I have had my fun with them, and this being my last one, I am selling it to go another direction with my collection. You get everything on the car, including the $2000 hardtop. If you want different or additional wheels, I have other sets to fit to swap or take in addition to your purchase. It is going at no reserve, meaning high bid wins! Therefore, have your cash cleared before bidding. Ask the wife, girlfriend, mom, dad, your preacher, your teacher, or whomever needs to give you clearance to purchase it PRIOR to bidding. Deposit required within 24hrs of auction end, and is non-refundable. You will get an awesome car.
