Offered here is a classic from the early eighties, a 1982 BMW 320iS. Original MSRP was $13,290 and $2,620 for Sport package in 1982 (only 1% of total 320i production were S package cars, making this a very rare car).

This car is equipped with an estimated 160hp M20 2.5 liter "i" 885 head with a 2.7 eta bottom end six cylinder engine, fed by a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection set-up with a full OEM header and custom catalyst delete dual exhaust. Power is transferred to the wheels with a short-throw 4-speed transmission mated to a 391 limited slip rear differential. Driver assist features include front disc brakes, lowered suspension, H&R springs, adjustable sway bars, front tower brace with camber adjustment.The battery has been relocated back to the trunk (better weight distribution). White 13 inch BBS "IS" alloys with 185/70-13 Kuhmos. The timing belt, water pump, etc. were changed a couple hundred miles ago.
With great power to weight ratio this car is an excellent candidate for high performance drivers school, auto-X, weekend toy or it can be very suitable for a daily driver. Very quick and fast...easy to drive and maintain.
