1988 BMW 3-Series 325is

Alpine White 1988 BMW 325is - Texas car and completely original - one owner! Working odometer shows 155,949 miles. This car is all original and runs like a top. 5 speed manual transmission. Had been sitting in storage for years so we went completely through the car and did all the fluids (oil, transmission, differential, power steering, coolant and brake), changed spark plugs and wires, new battery, changed control arm bushings, guibo disc, transmission mounts, thermostat, replaced rotors and pads, replaced all four calipers, changed out ABS relay and converted AC to 134A and it blows cold. Has original radio that works as well as original on board computer that works. The radio LCD display has some bleed-through on the panel but still works fine. Original dash with no cracks whatsoever. Drivers side seatbelt retractor sometimes will not pull the belt all the way in. Leather on the drivers seat has some wear and cracks but no tears. Passenger seat is in good shape and the rear seats are like new. Power windows and locks, cruise control, sunroof and power mirrors all work - sometimes the passenger side window switch gets touchy. The body is in excellent shape with the exception of a dent in the front left fender near the headlight (see pictures). Tons of service records, all original manuals and paperwork, original Bentley service manual, original untouched toolkit, inspection/service light reset tool, lots of spare parts and more. Original 14" BBS wheels with Goodyear tires. This is an exceptional example and would be great for a collection or as a cool daily driver. I do not offer any sort of financing - this is a cash price or I would be happy to work with your bank or credit union.
This old E30 has a clean and clear title blue Texas title and a clean vehicle history report that is available upon request. Being a very small operation passionate about cars allows me to keep a low overhead, stock only the best cars out there that I would drive myself and sell cars much cheaper than the bigger dealers do!
My family and I have been in the car business all our lives and are tried and true car enthusiasts. I specialize in European and Hybrid vehicles but buy and sell all makes and models and love to see interesting, classic and rare cars. Are you tired of working with dealers that know nothing about the cars they are selling? Would you like to work with someone one on one for the entire process? If so, you have come to the right place! I personally purchase each one of the vehicles I have for sale by and recondition them to the absolute best they can be so you can drive away worry free with a clean and reliable vehicle. No shady sales tactics and no pressure.
