NJ: 89 BMW 325is 5 Speed Black/Black

Hello All,

Well the time has come to sell my 325, I def want to build one down the road as this was the only brief run-in with an E30 and I loved it, Just
have to shift priorities and I have too much time and money already invested in my Turbo SE-R ( I know FWD ) but a fun car none the less.

Im putting everything out there and im a knit pic, It may seem like a bunch of issues but im not holding anything back at all.

Info on car -

Miles - 125k ( odometer just broke at 122 )
Carfax - ( have on hand and clean as can be )
Color - Black w/Black sport leather
Inspection - PASSED NJ first try

Little history on car -

Acquired last year from a family member that said it just had around 2k worth of work done but doesn't drive.
I towed it home and found it was just a burnt fusible link from the batt to DME.. Fixed and she started right up.

Car was painted a few years back by vocational students, its not 100% perfect but not bad either.
A buff and it should look pretty damn good, car has no real dents at all minor dings if that.

A/C needs a recharge, Power windows & power moonroof work, Cruise control works.

Whats been done since I have owned -
  • Added brand new OEM Roundels ( Front / Rear ) were worn out.
  • Resprayed front grills black w/ SEM Trim paint.
  • Purchased E30 trunk spoiler ( was missing since car was painted ) NOT Installed
  • Replaced all burnt out bulbs ( ashtrays / window switchs etc ) all work now.
  • Replaced radio & amp with nicely matching Pioneer deck.
  • Replaced M-Tech wheel badge with a new one.
  • Installed used ZHP shift **** ( says 6 speed although its a 5 )was looking for new decal
  • Purchased Euro Smileys, Included but not installed has factory Hella Elipsoids
  • Removed all seats and shampooed full car.
  • Cleaned and conditioned leather.
  • Replaced leaking fuel line

What needs attention - ( no details spared & most minor )

Totally unsure of timing belt history ( needs to be done for piece of mind )
I have a full kit with water pump included from Blunttech

Install new headlights if you wish they are included.

There is rust on the floor towards the front of each side. Not visible on the body but from underneath and floor gets wet if you submerge it.

Drivers seat needs some work, It will hold you in place perfect but it needs repairs as the controls dont work well. ( has 2 rips )

Fuel pump cuts out may need to be looked at didnt put much time in, sometimes car falls on face and then starts right back up.

Glove box latch broke ( simple fix just dry rotted ) stays closed.

Rear wheel bearing hum ( probaly need replacing )

Needs alignment steering wheel is a little off and you can feel vibration.

Odometer needs to be rebuilt ( needs gears common issue )

Speed sensor or wire needs replacing ( speedo dies sometimes and comes back )

Some rust near rear battery tray, Nothing gets in trunk but you can see from underneath

ABS senors need cleaning or to be checked, ABS light is on.

That is everything I know wrong with the car and most arent that mjor and can be knocked out easily in an afternoon with used parts.

The Good -

Car is chipped ( revs to 7 ), Not sure what chip as its from a person before my aunt. Car pulls strong and sounds healthy.

Semi clean iS model w/ 5 speed ( leather is decent ) Needs to be touched up with some leather dye possibly but only rips on drivers seat.

Exhaust is pretty new I was told and bilstein struts feel great.

Has BMW Style 10's 15" ( an optional wheel at the time ) + Spare 14" weave

I dont want to sell the car but cant afford to keep 3 so what would of been a project is being let go, Later ill find another one as I feel in love with these E30's..

Pictures - Tons more avail if interested

If you have any questions feel free to email me : daryl at z10eng dot com.
