    FS: 1987 325i Convertible 5 speed -SE PA

    New Price-$1650??- NEED SOLD MAKE OFFER, Willing to give great price if sold asap!

    Quick specs
    1987 325i Convertible, Delphin Metallic with Pearl Beige interior. Beige Top.
    Approx. 189,000 miles.


    The Good:
    Lots of recent maintenance
    New Clutch- Last week
    New brake pads and disks- 9 months ago
    New Water Pump under my ownership
    New Interior under my Uncle's ownership. No tears in the rear seat tops like most convertibles.
    New top under my uncle's ownership. It has two dime sized holes from rubbing on the supports during closure. Does not let water in for some odd reason.
    New exhaust 9 months ago.
    Interior is nicest of any e28/e30/e34 I have owned (6 total).
    Mechanically very very sound. Nothing should be needed for quite some time.
    This vert seems to be a sport package of some sort. Has the normal 87 325is front airdam and rear spoiler. I also believe it has a LSD, I had someone run the VIN quite some time ago that brought that up. I will double check this.



    The Normal:
    Cracks in the dash, one and a half cracks along the passenger side.
    A couple dings and dents along the front end.

    The Bad:
    Rust on the rear driver side arch. Small portion on tip of hood from rock chips.
    Fog lights came up when I flexed the front airdam in a small berm. I also placed a dent in the front right fender at the same time.
    Exterior is showing its age. The paint has its scratches.
    Rear spoiler must have gotten water into it, as it seems to have expanded and hardened in a 6inch portion.
    Odo stopped working at about 187,000. This happened last Oct. Car was in storage in my neighbors garage from beginning of November until March. Has been driven sparingly since then due to slipping clutch and a new Acura TSX. I would say that at most 4000 miles have been put on the car since it stopped.
    A crack some how developed in the rear windshield, no idea how in the world it happened, since it began when my car was parked in the garage.
    Also the steering wheel leather has deteriorated over the winter and now has some cracks.

    Brief History
    Car was bought by a yuppie in PA from a dealership. Was owned by him until about 100,000 miles. He sold it do a used car dealership in PA. Eventually my Uncle came across at it another car dealer in NJ and bought it in 2000 ( I have maint records going back to that point). I bought the car from my Uncle about 3 years ago. THe car was serviced by my Uncle in NJ by a shop called Bimmers Only and Herb chambers BMW. It was serviced in my area by two shops, B & W Auto and by Bob Fox, who works mostly on Porsches but also does MB and BMW.

    Quick History of Maint (back to 2000, before may be available from BMW dealer records).
    2000 - Control arms, control arm bushings. Flex disk, timing belt, waterpump, pulleys, can and crank seals, drive belts.
    2001- Front struts and housing, Radiator, thermostat.
    2004- New convertible top ($1300), reupholster seats
    2003- Rear brake pads+ rotors.
    2005- Headlights, foglights.
    2006- (My ownership) Waterpump, belts. Various fluids filters.
    2007 - Exhaust, brake pads. Fluids
    Sept 2008- Clutch, resurface flywheel. Fluids. New battery.

    Not mentioned in this list is the various regular tune ups, oil changes etc. Have a folder with receipts from 2000 on.

    Car has not been driven much in the last year. Was stored while I was at school and taken out in April, given a once over with new oil and filter and a new battery. The clutch began to slip right before it went into winter storage, and it has made only short distance trips since it came out. I have put 100 miles on the new clutch and the car drives great.

    Reason for selling. Want a motorcycle, sick of paying insurance on two cars, stupid tickets for non-moving violations (light bulb out, old registration sticker despite current registration), going back to school, etc etc.
    I want to sell this and my 535is and consolidate my holdings into a new e30. If your interested in a 1988 535is alpine over cardinal let me know.

    I'm looking to get $3300 for it. I have put nearly that much into it in the last year alone. I would love to trade + cash for a nice plastic bumpered e30 325is or 325i coupe. OR, if you have a Ninja 250r, that would also be of interest.


    PLEASE CONTACT ME AT jhaffel@gmail.com. I prefer to use email rather than telephone.



    All of the Maint from 2000, I've got a binder with everything, even most of the oil changes.

      info sent.

      Please put an appropriate subject in any emails sent. People from my various craigslist ads (e30 for sale, e28 for sale, e28 spoiler) keep sending me emails asking for pics or with phone numbers but I cant tell which one they are talking about.

      I promise I will have pictures up soon as well.

            Pictures are up now, would like to sell this before end of october. Otherwise I'm trading my 535iS for an e30 325iS and putting my wonderful convertible back into winter hibernation.

            I would be happy to set up a time for someone to come and look and drive. Please make sure you bring a valid driver's license, apparently some craigslist people think I'm willing to let it go for a test drive and get impounded by the damn philly police.

            I'm open to trades for nice looking plastic bumpered e30s. Will trade both my cars for a nice e30 (I have a 535iS up for sale right now as well).

                Yeah, me too. I barely drive either of them anymore, let alone do both move in the same week. Somethings gotta go.

                Also, it seems to great state of Pennsylvania has revoked my driving privileges, so now its not just VA and NJ I can't drive in, but everywhere.
                On the brightside I've got a septa trailpass lol.

                        Well, posterity, you will never know what it cost us to preserve your freedom. I only hope that you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.
