Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model

-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    For Sale - 1988 325is

    1988 325is
    5 speed manual, 117k miles
    Very Clean, Great Condition, Clean Title
    Lachssilber Metallic Exterior, Grey Leather Interior

    Cosmetically one of the cleanest and unmodified E30’s you’ll find. Runs really strong and drives great. Leaks a little oil. AC needs a charge. Body is straight and interior in great condition.

    I bought this car about 4 years back because I loved how clean and essentially unmodified it was. I planned to spend some time tinkering and making some upgrades but she ran so great that I pretty much have left it alone. The carfax shows a clean history with regular maintenance visits throughout most of its miles. And from what I can tell things are mostly original. The last owner swapped the auto transmission to manual.

    I took it to a local shop (Accuracy Automotive) recently to diagnose the leaky oil source and give it an inspection:
    -Head gasket looks the culprit for the oil drip. Needs replacement and fluid flush.
    -Original shocks, struts and worn rear sub frame bushings contributing to car drifting/floating slightly at higher speeds.
    - No A/C. Probably just needs a charge. I never worried too much about it being up here in Seattle area... Ha!

    The exterior is really clean. Paint in great condition, a few minor dings here and there. The previous owner mentioned the top being repainted. And we noticed the drivers side front fender had been removed at some point, with no vin sticker, so that was probably also repainted at some point but I can't tell from the look of it. No rust.

    Interior is very nice. A couple minor flaws and tears in front seats but generally in good shape. No cracks in the dash. The functionality of almost everything interior wise is woking great - Central door locks, power windows, power sun roof, etc..

    I installed an 8” “Luke box” custom subwoofer box and amp mount with Image Dynamics 8” sub, Soundstream Picasso Nano 640 W 5-Channel amp and Kenwood bluetooth receiver.

    Price - $9000, OBO

    Very nice e30 and priced to sell!

    That oil leak you mentioned...head gasket? (or valve cover gasket?)


      Nice car but doesn’t look like Delphin.


        I’d be very interested in seeing some videos of the car cold starting and running through all the gears. New England buyer possibly interested in buying sight unseen if all right.


          Unbelievable! I think you're right on the color -DELPHINtimecapsule. I had always thought it was the Delphin grey. Looking at the colors. It is definitely one of the metallic colors. Should change the title... oh well

          mossy oaks a nd rony316 i sent you private messages... Thanks for the interest!

            Very nice car! The color looks to be lachssilber to me.

            If the new owner isn’t interested in the lukebox please let me know.


              Added another google drive with some more photos and videos that people have requested.


                This is a steal. They just don't come along very often in this condition. I'd be shocked if this car is still around next week. If you threw this on BaT, you'd get asking, easy. Wish I were in the market. GLWS




                    Man great deal! Just as I’m on the search for one... now nothing is for sale lol
