1989 BMW 3-Series is

Hey everyone,

The time has come to let my beloved E30go due to unexpected addition to the family, so I have about5 months to get myself into a totally different car, because there will be no baby barf happening in this one...I've put a lot of money and time into this car in the last two years of ownership, tocreateanice, cleanE30 witha fewtasteful upgrades, otherwise kept the car original, so I'm hoping to seeit end upin the right hands and pamper it the same way I have...

This is a true "is" model (AAA Vin), agood example of a Nice, Adult Owned, Unmolested, mostly ORIGINAL, NON-smoker, Solid, California Rust FreeE30.

Clean and Clear Title, Pink Slip in hand. Tags are good 'til 04/17.

Passed Smog Check last spring with no issues (see photo).

​I have posted lots of photos to cover as many angles on this car as anyone can see, and a few Videos to show how well it runs, plus the Working Odometer which seems to be a big deal on E30s these days..

It originally came equipped with an automatic transmission,however a 5 speed conversion was professionally done early this year by Castro's Motorsports.

The car was professionally painted a few months ago with the correct color codes for Lachssilber-Metallic.

All original body parts with VIN tags are intact (see photos) as well asthebumperssince I verified them upon respray.

Sunroof received a brand new OEM 1 piece seal after paint job.(see photos)

Front Seats just got reupholstered3 months ago with the softest German Leather available. They were also completely rebuilt, so they're fully functional..

The rear leather bench didn't need any attention, still in very good shape for its age.

The car's sitting on a set of very rare old school (built in 1989) 15" BBS-RD022 two tone rims matching the color of the car which makes me believe that they originally came with this vehicle. The Center Caps are New,real BBS made inGermany, (took me a year to find) and very expensive.The wheels arewrapped with Yokohamatires in great shape with approx. 2000 miles on them.

The car drives, handles and brakes as it should (see videos).

The few issues with the car that I didn't get a chance to deal with since they were not that serious, are:Brake Lining Light (Front Left sensor/wire was cut), ABS Light (probably bad relay) does Not affect the braking. The Left Blinker Light in the cluster is out(probably a burned light bulb)The Dash was perfect untila few months ago(couple of cracks-see photos).Please keep in mind that this is not a new vehicle and that it is sold as-is, where-is with no warrantees implied, stated, or otherwise intended.
