1985 BMW 3-Series 325e
Up for sale is this beautiful 1985 325e with 76,173 original miles. I bought it with just 75,000 miles on it but am selling it because the wife says I have too many projects and not enough time for them. Car is in great shape for a 32 year old car. If you are looking for a mint condition restored e30, then you should probably look elsewhere. This car is not perfect, but is in great shape, especially for a car this age, and would require minimal work to be fully restored. What this car is, is a classic in great condition and would make a great daily driver if you want to save fuel, or would be a great candidate for a full restore. The bad: drivers seat has a tear on the side, there is a tear on the headliner on the sunroof panel, the left dome light will need a new bracket which can be found on bavarian autosport for under $20, which i may end up fixing anyway. The dash has the typical cracks of a 32 year old e30, but a leather overlay can be had for about $200 that will really make this car more upscale inside. There is a dent under the rear tail light that will not cost too much to get fixed as well as a couple os dings that could also be easily fixed by any paintless dent removal specialist. Also there is a small oil leak coming from the oil pan. A new pan can be bought for $179 and takes about an hour or 2 to install, or it can be easilly repaired if you are handy. Other than these issues the car drives great. Tires are in great shape, paint has no oxidation or fading, interior is great aside from the small tear on the drivers seat and the cracks on the dash. A/C blows very cold and has properly been retrofitted to R134a refrigerant. On board computer still works and all LCD readouts work perfectly. Power windows and power sunroof both work. New u-joints and has a 2.71 limited sip rear, not ideal for racing, but gives you great fuel economy as you will turn low RPM's on the highway. Has the leather seating with the recaro style sport seats in the front, and leather rear seats with the fold down arm rest and ski pass-thru (which is rare on e30's). this car is loaded with pretty much every option for the 1985 model year. Has CD player with aux input and new speakers under factory grills. Look around at the prices of these e30s with under 100,000 miles and you will see that I am asking very little in comparison, as these cars easily get above $10,000 with twice the miles than this car has. Non -refundable deposit of $500 is due immediately after winning or buying. All sales final and no warranties are implied. Thank you for stopping by and good luck!
