    325i cabriolet, ec05196
    alpine white II (218) over lotus white full leather (0462)
    m20b25/getrag 260 5-speed manual/3.73 LSD
    181k miles, second owner, clean OR title in hand
    rare m-technic appearance package (770 code)
    largely stock vehicle, down to the original color matched 14" wheels
    cyl head rebuild in 2002, timing belt/water pump in 2015, new H&R/Bilstein suspension, very mechanically sorted
    glass out repaint in 2018, new euro spec mtechnic front and rear bumpers, new mtechnic front spoiler
    lots of misc hardware replaced, body seals/gaskets, etc
    good, driver quality, mtechnic e30

    i have owned this car since July, 2015. having purchased it from its original owner, i knew it was a car worth saving, particularly, because it was one of a select few that was optioned with the 770 package, as well as a manual transmission, which was uncommon. the original owner was a lawyer and this was reportedly his first major car purchase. somewhere along the line, the car ended up sitting from ~2007, until i purchased the car. right before the car got parked, the pads/rotors/calipers were all replaced. from what i can see, from digging into the car, the cylinder head and related parts (misc cooling hoses, fuel hoses) were serviced around 2002 - my best guess, the owner neglected to change the timing belt and it failed. engine runs very well.

    the first thing i did was replace the timing belt, water pump, cap, rotor, plugs, fuel and air filters. at the same time, i replaced the torn, power top assembly (with a failed motor) with a good, used, manual top assembly. i then daily drove it for about a year before taking it off the road.

    in early 2017, i stripped the car down and prepared it for a full body and paint job. it took over a year, but i finally got the car back. i have lots of pictures during the process. only recently, was i able to spend a couple weeks and reassemble the car. it's a driver quality paint job.

    during my ownership, i have done the following:
    -new Bilstein Sport dampers and H&R Sport springs (9/20)
    -oil service (9/20)
    -remanufactured factory steering rack, OE motor mounts (9/20)
    -new 205/60/14 tires (9/20)
    -timing belt/water pump/partial inspection 2, overhauled shifting assembly@ 171k (8/15)
    -new OE mtechnic front spoiler (9/16)
    -new OE euro spec mtechnic front bumper assembly (9/16)
    -new OE euro spec mtechnic rear bumper assembly (9/16)
    -new OE outer window scrapers, window guide/door seals (where the door meets the top), cabrio front top seal, wiper grommets, wiper cowl covers, almost all of the mtechnic mounting hardware, door hinge bushings, roundels, kidney grill, Euro headlight grills, H4 low beams, etc (8/20)
    One on this board sold for over 20k I believe. Definitely not $3200 they are harder to come by then the regular verts.

    Probably got an equivalency letter from BMW, that would probably be the only legal avenue.

    was also featured on a one take with matt farah however you feel about those.

    pretty dang well sorted m60 swap. there's always something you wanna change but definitely seems nice enough to make me wish i had that kind of cash to think about throwing at it.

    I wonder if they picked out the porno tapes they wanted too? you know.... important classics such as "red headed sluts take it in every hole" and "fat sweaty whores go ass to mouth".

    I further wonder if he died jacking off to his porn collection? when i buy vintage vinyl, i absolutely love the thought of paying more if some dirty fat dead guy sprayed jiz all over them.

    The real measure of the man would be if he rewound his tapes before he kicked off.
