88 325i re-done with m50 swap

feelers:
I've finished rebuilding a 88 bmw 325i. The inside has the vader seats, carpet redone, stereo re-wired, mtech 370 new wheel. Clean dash with new center consoles. All just done up nice. The swap was for an m50 with 5speed tran comes with lsd.
I had a complete ac re-done to r-134. That was a 1000$ it was for an evaportor, condensor, compressor, expansion valve, dryer, o rings. It has suspension raceland. Seats are vader seats from a e36 m3 installed with custom powder coated brackets. Miles are 105,000. The wheels and tires are new. Magnaflow exhaust. Rear seat re-done. Drives strong and fast. All dash bulbs replaced. Rear deck shelf and speakers/covers re-done. Hood liner in fantastic shape. All center black trim replaced.
Conversion of motor and transmission have been professionally swapped with the more reliable and fuel efficient M50B25TU motor. Donor engine and matching transmission off a 1994 325IS. This engine brings the advantage of the more reliable timing chain setup (vs timing belt), individual coil packs, more horsepower, and overall reliability. Comes with clean and clear title and Carfax report. Excellent example of this year and model. Always cared for and properly maintained and serviced. Never abused, always garaged. Runs and drives excellent. Drives as good as it looks. All services are up to date. Conversion and major service performed within last 200 miles. It is in near pristine shape for a 27 year old car. Tool kit included (as seen in photos). All work professionally performed by Legendary Autoworks in Chula Vista, CA

I am sure more pics are wanted, just pm me your cell that way I can text over the pics. I am only able to upload one pic on this for some reason so I chose the one posted.]
11/23/2016 Just replaced valve cover gasket, fan clutch, fan, rear main seal all milling plug o-rings from engine and oil filter housing. Clutch was in great shape so I did not need to replace it. 2K total cost of parts and labor.



Engine came from 1994 325is: WBABF3315PEF38591
Car VIN: WBAAB6400J1689803

The air freshener is NEW CAR. I normally just sport one a week in my car. I do the same in my e90 M3. No reason why there are three other then I like the smell. I normally throw them in the trunk so there are maybe 30 in there. I'm a bit OCD. I replace them a lot in all my cars, it is a cheap pick me up.

I beat there are more then three if I look around.

That's an amazing looking e30! What kind of wheels are on the car? Are they BBS RS or reps?
