1989 BMW 325i ConvertibleLow Miles, Excellent Condition
You are bidding on a 1989 BMW 325i Convertible in Excellent Condition. I am the 3rd owner of this vehicle. I purchased it from a good friend who bought it from the original owner. Originally a California car, the original owner moved to the Nashville area several years ago, and the car has been here ever since then. We are remodeling an old house, so I need to sell this car to someone who can love it and preserve it for the next generation.
Here is the good and not-so-good as I know it to be:
Good
  • All original, except for the convertible top.
  • Very low miles.
  • Exterior in excellent condition, especially for a 28-year old car.
  • No rips in interior or cracks in dash.
  • Heated front seats.
  • Recaro front seats.
  • Original mats, and they are in decent shape.
  • All manuals and service records (as best as I can tell).
  • Engine runs smooth and delivers consistent power.

Not-so-good
  • The AC needs to be recharged, but it has been converted to R-134 (March 2003).
  • The stitching on the top of the rear seat is dry-rotted and needs to be fixed (see picture).
  • The leather could use reconditioning.
  • The plastic housing for the convertible top latch is cracked and needs to be replaced. The top still works fine.
  • The onboard computer doesn't really work as it should, but you should be able to set the date/time.
  • The right-rear 1/4 panel was apparently repainted/re-striped. No evidence of body damage. Just a repaint.
  • There is a crack in the front bumper plastic trim.
  • There appears to be a very small oil leak around the valve cover gasket. I never had to add oil.
  • The odometer didn't work for about a month. I replaced the gears, and it works fine now. Mileage might be off by 100 miles, give or take.

Hagerty.com values the car between $10,500 and $16,600. I have it insured for $12,000. I will be happy to email the valuation report to you. You will have a hard time finding an E30 Convertible in better shape with lower miles. This car will give you years of enjoyment.
