    1988 325iS with S54 - Zinno/Schwarz - PDX

    I thought I would never sell my favorite car ever, but I got an itch for another project so my 1988 325iS with an S54 has to go. I built this car myself with the help of a friend (an engineer). Everything was done correct as possible to give the car an OEM look and feel. I have put 4500 miles on the car since the swap. It starts immediately and runs silky smooth. It is wicked fast, although I have not pushed it very hard, because quite honestly the power scares me. I can’t imagine why you would want to turbo it, but if you do, I’d be happy to drop it off at Horsepowerfreaks down the street for you.

    Here are the details (Current mileages shown):
    -S54b32 from a 2002 M3 – 44k miles.
    -OEM ECU with flash in Germany
    -ZF 5speed from a 95 M3 – approx. 64k miles. (new clutch wear items, and metal
    pivot pin)
    -Z3M S54 flywheel and clutch
    -E36 318i/325i clutch slave cylinder with dedicated reservoir
    -UUC stainless steel clutch line for E36 318i/325i
    -E60 550i short shifter
    -ZHP shift knob
    -E34 525i oil pan
    -Euro S50b32 oil pump
    -E46 M3 radiator and cooling & heater hoses
    -E46 M3 starter
    -E46 M3 Valeo 120 amp alternator
    -E46 M3 power steering pump
    -SPAL 16” push fan (curved blade design with larger motor and quieter operation)
    -E30 oil cooler with AN -10 adapters, Turner Motorsport S54 oil filter housing an adapter fittings, Areoquip Startlite Racing hose and fittings.
    -E36 328i manual driveshaft with new E30 CSB
    -3.25 LSD
    -UUC E36 M3 red transmission mounts with enforcer cups
    -Green E28 M5 heavy duty motor mounts
    -Deatschwerks 300LPH fuel pump
    -E46 M3 fuel pressure regulator & filter
    -E23 733i Hydro boost brake system (previous owner said master cylinder was rebuilt. no leaks. Stops awesome).
    -Stainless steel brake lines
    -E46 M3 drive-by-wire gas pedal
    -E46 M3 K&N Typhoon air intake
    -E30 M3 wiring harness cover
    -Custom front sway-bar (very thick)
    -Treehouse Racing lollipop control arm bushings
    -Stainless headers, twin 2.5” tubing to 2 OBDII cats, backed by a Euro E36 M3 muffler
    -H&R Sport springs
    -Bilstein Sport shocks
    -Heavy duty rear shock mounts
    -Rear strut tower brace
    -Set of 5 Euroweaves with Continental 205/55/15 tires (all excellent shape, esp.
    spare)
    -Full set of trunk tools and also jack, lug wrench, choke, and hub cap wrench
    -New battery
    -Alpine stereo with multi-illumination (matches BMW orange perfect)
    -Viper alarm w/ keyless entry

    Maintenance items such as the serpentine belt, spark plugs (NGK DCPR8EKP), O2 sensors, MAF, and Bosch ignition coils were replaced. New nuts and bolts were used when specified by TIS and torqued to proper specifications. I put an OBDII connector under the dash on the driver’s side, and I re-used rear window defroster switches for the fan and Sport mode (with temporary labels). I’ve kept all the receipts.

    Fluids & chems:
    Engine oil: Castrol TWS 10W-60
    Trans oil: Pentosin MTF2
    Diff oil: Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-110
    Power steering & Hydro boost fluid: Amsoil Multi-vehicle ATF
    Brake Fluid: ATE Super Blue Racing
    Clutch parts and input spline grease: Esso Unirex S2

    Additional info:
    I believe the car was originally purchased in Seattle and has spent it’s entire life in the PNW. I purchased the car from the owner of Northwest European Autoworks in Bellingham in 2007 and it was entirely stock. The chassis now has 285,000 miles on it, but is in fantastic condition. Paint is shiny. No accidents as far as I am aware. The interior is very nice. No dash cracks. Leather seats are nice. Relatively new OEM floor mats from the dealer. The title is clean. The registration is current, but the Pacific Wonderland license plates will not be included.

    $18,500.

                    THE PERFECT STREET E30! I loved following your build thread. It almost made the swap seem easy. Extremely fair price for the amount of expensive parts and hard work you've got into it. GLWS, and good luck with your future project(s).

                              Figured we'd start to see the first of the S54's up for sale shortly, this is the first Ive seen and also one of the cleanest. GLWS, I definitely feel like it is well priced for what it is.
