1989 BMW 325IXDiamond Schwartz Metallic (Black)Black Leatherette Interior96. 99 Miles (it is less than this. but I am driving it occasionally)Working AWD. a jack-test video is HERECrack Free DashEverything WorksSki Pass ThroughBilstein Black Shocks with OEM SpringsCoco Floor MatsLightly Tinted Rear Side WindowsThis is a 2-owner car that has driven less than 1000 miles in the last decade. a true garage find. It has no doubt been stored inside for the majority of its life. I have restored. rebuilt. and sorted a dozen E30’s over the years. and this one drives more like a fresh-off-the-lot BMW than any of them. That’s the beauty of an automatic. it hasn’t been flogged. stanced. or bastardized like so many E30’s out there. It is a time capsule of what defined BMW for a generation and earned it the reputation as the Ultimate Driving Machine. All of the boxes are checked with this car if you are looking for a really clean E30. The AWD system works perfectly. The AC has been converted to R134 and blows cold. The odometer works and reads correctly – 96. 38 miles at the time I wrote this description. It has had a high quality complete paint restoration at some point. It is so good I didn’t realize it wasn’t factory until it was on the lift and I noticed overspray on the under panels. I’ve included pictures from underneath. The clear coat is excellent and the orange peal is better than the factory job on my M Coupe. The projector headlights and fog lights have zero pitting or cracks. Neither does the lower valence. The antenna motor works. The door seals have not shrunk. The dash is crack free. It was also professionally replaced at some point. The vents do not sag. All buttons and functions are intact and work correctly. The 6-button OBC has clear pixels. The stereo is a Kenwood unit with JBL speakers and a 6-disc changer in the trunk. The leatherette seats are as supple and soft as the dash. not hardened by years of UV exposure. The ski pass through and rear armrest are a fantastic option for your ski’s. snowboard. or Align Trex 700 RC Helicopter (I have fit all 3 in my personal E30). The suspension is tight. firm and compliant. It has been recently replaced with Bilstein black shocks and OEM springs. The motor purrs like a kitten. The driveline is free of noise or vibration. The muffler appears to be relatively new. it still has the factory black paint. The seller claimed that the timing belt had been recently replaced (it looked like it had been). but the cam seal was leaking and every E30 I get gets the full service if there is no documentation to prove it.

I want to find the right owner who will enjoy and cherish this car for years to come. That’s the good. here’s the bad. This car came to me (in Colorado) from Maryland. It is rust free with the exception of one small spot under the passenger door. I have documented this with pictures. The fender seams. lower windshield. floorboards. and battery tray are all rust-free. I have provided pictures of each of these areas. There is superficial rust on the brake dust shields. transmission pan. heat shields. and underbody fastener heads. I have included pictures of these items too. The single worst item is the right front brake dust shield. The left front fender has been professionally replaced at some point with a BMW DOT-R fender. Based on the patina of the DOT-R tag. I would guess it happened early in the car’s life. before the paint restoration. The Carfax and Autocheck reports are clean and posted below. The panel gaps are perfect. the frame rails are straight. and the radiator support bracket is original. There is no indication this car has ever been hit. but the left front fender was replaced at some point. The passenger door has also been replaced it is missing its VIN tag. My guess is this was replaced when the paintwork was done. The panel gaps are perfect on it as well. I have included pictures of all areas and VIN tags mentioned below. The Goodyear Eagle tires look virtually unused. consistent with sitting in a garage for the last 10 years. The little rubber nubs have not worn off and the tread depth is deep. but there is some slight cracking on the sidewalls. also consistent with sitting in a garage for the last 10 years. They are not hardened or slick. they hook up well and stick great. The dashboard is a replacement dashboard. so the VIN tag is not attached. It is included with a section of the original dashboard with the vehicle. I have opted to keep it this way to rather than attach it to the new dashboard. to be flexible in complying with various state’s VIN requirements. I currently have 6 E30’s. including 3 IX’s and 1 touring. This car presents better than any of them and gets attention every time I drive it. I strive to give as a thorough representation as possible. please contact me with any further questions. It took me a lot to get this car and more to bring it up to my standards. I reserve the right to end this auction early and will do so if a buyer makes an offer slightly more than I can break even on. If you follow the E30 market. my reserve price is lower than the final bid price of the sliver. sub-100. 00 mile. automatic IX that sold earlier in the year. and my car is cleaner (search the sold listings).
