1989 BMW 3-Series Cabrio

I love driving this car into the Country Club. I will miss the nods, aves and thumbs up of approval but more so just simply the fun of driving this machine.
This E30, ype BB13 325i Cabriolet is powered by the amazing M20 – 2.5L (125kW/168 hp) engine. The manual 5-Speed transmission with Heckantrieb drive transfers the raw power of this machine to the road. Options Included: Differential Lock 25%, n-Board Computer II and BMW Factory Upgraded Sound System.
You will be purchasing a car that has been carefully restored to near factory condition. There are precious few places on this car that have not had some restoration.

I am selling the car ONLY because my driving days are drawing to a close as I have Parkinson's. (My driving has been criticized but these intolerant people should just stay off the sidewalks).

Engine: The upper engine has been totally rebuilt. The entire timing system is new.

Electrical System: New Distributor Rotor and Cap, park plugs wires, nd a number of sensors and relays (as were needed/some that were not needed but replaced due to their age). New Crank Position Sensor, ew Throttle Position Switch, ew Ignition Switch

New 60 month battery

Cooling System: New Radiator, ensors, ater Pump, adiator and Heater Hoses.
Heating: Both blowers (the old ones were noisy so I replaced them) were replaced with new thermostat and relay.
Fuel System: The tank was drained/cleaned prior to installation of New fuel pump, ending unit, ew fuel hoses and filter. New Relay and Idle Control Valve and Fuel Pressure Regulator.
New Tires
Interior: The entire interior was gutted, leaned and carefully restored.This began with cleaning, ew sound proofing, ew pad and carpet. The seats were recovered and door, ide panels and convertible top cover were recovered. New floor mats; Custom Black Vinyl Hexomats in front.
The Brakes: New brake rotors and pads.
The Exterior: New EZ Brand German Cloth Convertible Top (New tension straps/cables). All gaskets and and moldings that were not in pristine condition have been replaced.
The car runs and drives exceptionally well..... the suspension, xhaust system, rive train, reas that have not on the list above, o not appear to have any issues or I would have repaired/restored it as well. The body does have some blemishes, ut has no rust spots. The car is not driven in the winter.

The mileage on the car is somewhat insignificant due to the the engine rebuild, ut the odometers 155,XXX, nd I do not know the odometer history, ther than what was available thru AutoCheck.I am assuming it needs a new gear(s).
The above is a PARTIAL list of the restoration and new parts. Many parts were replaced as a part of the restoration problem and not due to mechanical failure (sensors, witches, tc).

This description is accurate to the best of my knowledge, ut one should remember this is a restored automobile, nd not a new automobile.

TERMS: An immediate deposit of $500 is due via PayPal at the time of purchase. This deposit is non-refundable (for any reason). When an eBay Buyer fails to follow thru with a purchase, specially an item such as this, he Seller still has to pay the fees and then start the sale process all over again. For this reason the deposit is non-refundable. Full payment is due within 7 business days via electronic funds transfer, ash, r cashier's check from a major US bank (it will have to be validated by my bank, nd clear, f necessary, rior to title transfer). Sale is final. Pick-up is due within 14 days of purchase. Since my location is in the Twin Cities metro area, he Buyer should find arranging for Auto Transport Services quite easy.

Buyers Note: Take into consideration that: Yes, here are less expensive e30's out there for sale, ut very few that have had many future years of mechanical expense and restoration already complete. I have invested over $11,000 into this car, ut due to my health it needs an owner that can get her out on the open road.
