        i'd probably be too scared to drive it since it looks like it would be almost impossible to see anything out of the windows. i suppose its ok if its just sitting in a parking lot in front of your business, though.

                      1987 BMW 325is ///Msport. This car has zero rust. Has factory ///M suspension, interior, M20 6 cylinder, New battery, new alternator.New clutch slave cylinder. 5-speed close ratio transmission, LSD rear end. Rare factory 15 inch basket weave wheels. Engine runs great. Car shifts, stops and handles beautifully. Original paint, original leather interior showing wear. All panel VIN numbers match. Some minor body damage on driver side (see pics). Factory ///M badges. This car is all original and unmolested. The spare matching 15 inch BBS basket weave wheel is flawless. This car has always been adult owned, never raced, never abused, and serviced regularly. (sorry I do not have the service records). This car is a very solid, rust free example of an E30 with RARE factory options. It's not cherry, but could be with very little effort. Clear title, on planned non-op.(no back fees).

                      This is certainly one of, if not the best handling, funnest cars I have ever driven. However, my location, and life style are not conducive to owning this car. I spend the majority of my time as far from pavement as I can get so I will pass this machine on to someone who has a paved driveway, on a paved street, leading to paved highways where it will live a good life putting a grin on it's new owner's face.

                        he implies that this car came from the factory with this kit. it certainly did not. the complete kit is rare though. i believe it probably adds about 1500-1800 to whatever the value of the e30 it is wrapped around. if he has documentation that it was installed by a dealership in '87, that would probably add a bit of value.

                        i dig it. i bet the car is worth 5k or so if its rust free.

                                This one might be worth a look. There are many unknowns that could be answered upon inspection.

                                1987 BMW 535i - $1500

                                https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...384756634.html



                                Hey All,
                                This is my project car 1987 BMW 535i. I bought this car initially as my daily driver with 145,000 miles on it and it did serve me faithfully for the first 6 months and 2,000 miles of ownership. However, as the state of various systems regarding comfortability and driveability began to deteriorate, I purchased something newer and more reliable, with admittedly less character. Seeing as I had a new daily driver, I set my mind to a multitude of project car dreams. Whether that was track rat or OEM restoration, none of these ideas came to be.

                                Although my dreams of the perfect E28 were cut short because of school and job commitments, yours may become true! After getting my motorcycle endorsement, I really want a motorcycle and getting my E28 out of my driveway will be the first step towards that. I will now detail the condition of the car as well some parts I have to give the car the push it needs.

                                Drivetrain
                                The M30B34, 3.4 liter inline 6 cylinder engine is a torquey, sweet sounding engine when running properly. When this engine ran, it would sing smoothly to its 7,000rpm redline but this was not frequently necessary as this engine utilized its torque advantage, providing for a thrusting low-mid rpm power range. However, it does not run currently. Throughout my ownership, the starter motor was fault and would require multiple cranks of the ignition to fire. After putting off the dreaded starter replacement on M20s and M30s, I decided to attempt to replace it a month back. This attempt did not end in success, hence why the starter is partially disconnected from the engine, and is the reason why the engine will not crank currently. Additionally, there is a small oil leak from the valve cover gasket. There is no smoke from the oil leaking onto the headers and it does not leak enough oil, or burn enough for that matter, to make a difference in the oil levels of the engine. A new OEM exhaust was installed a week prior to my purchasing of the car.
                                The Getrag 260, 5 speed manual transmission fitted to the car works exceptionally. Coming from the truck like transmission of my previous car , a 91 Saab 900, this transmission shifts exceptionally smooth with a fairly long throw from gear to gear. The clutch engages fairly low, towards the floorboard, and seems to have plenty of life left. I was told by the previous owner that is was recently replaced, September 2016 at the time, with an Sachs Clutch.
                                The differential or drive-shaft do not make any noise out of the ordinary and function well. I am not sure whether the car is fitted with an open diff or an LSD, but my inclination is to say that it is open.

                                Suspension/Brakes/Steering
                                E28s use an independent front and rear suspension. The OEM springs and shocks are in good condition and ride well. It can be driven in a sporty manner and while it certainly has a fair amount of body roll, it grips nicely on good tires.
                                The hydroboost system on E28s is a fairly unique system in the way which the power steering and brake booster are linked through a belt system and a hydroboost "bomb". When I purchased this car, the previous owner claimed it had a fault brake booster. The "brake" warning light on the dash is constantly lit up, not just for the first few seconds after startup like a typical e28. The brakes have a weird bite point further down in the pedal travel, however they do stop adequately. I had no qualms about taking this car on the highway and having to stop in an emergency situation, so long as a properly following distance was maintained. The ABS systems work and engages well in low traction braking scenarios, although an 80's ABS is fairly primitive.
                                Another one of my projects was rebuilding the power steering pump. While I also completed this procedure by replacing all seals as well as the pilot bearing, a small c-clip is preventing me from reinstalling the power steering pump. Currently, the A/C and power steering drive belts have been removed. Therefore, the car does not have power brakes or power steering. Prior to my rebuild of the pump, it leaked profusely but the steering never suffered so long as I filled the reservoir up every 3-4 weeks. In fact, the steering was one of my favorite parts of the car because it loaded up nicely and provided great feedback through the wheel.

                                Tires and Wheels
                                Some E28s came from the factory with the TRX wheel and tire package. Looking similar to the US sized BMW Bottlecaps, TRX's used a metric sized wheel and tire. This ensured, terribly, that it was very pricey and difficult to find replacement wheels and tires. Speaking of replacements, the rear tires on my car are completely bald and are even showing cord in some places. The front tires are not much better being very dry rotted and fairly low on tread as well.

                                Interior and Exterior
                                The interior of this car is a place where it shines. This car was built as a Diamantschwarz Metallic colored car with a black comfort seat interior. Interior wise, this car is in immaculate condition save for the left passenger door seal and heating system. The left passenger door seal leaks, allow water to moisten the left passenger carpet area. After noticing this, I nervously checked for rust under the carpet and rear seats. Although there is admittedly some surface rust, none of it is in jeopardy of rusting through the floorboards. Pictured is a photo of the rear seat removed while I was checking for rust. I recently replaced the trunk seal to stop the leaking of water into the trunk. Dash is relatively crack free. All windows function except for the left passenger window. This car does have a full OEM trunk tool kit, which is fairly rare on used E28s. The heating and A/C systems do not function. I purchased the car like that and honestly have no idea what is wrong with it. I had an Alpine head unit installed by Mobile West in November of 2016 and they replaced the old amplifier as well.
                                The exterior has been left 100% stock. All headlights work and both tail lights should too, seeing as the trunk gasket has been replaced. Pictured are two scratches on the left, front fender which were already on the car when I purchased it. This car has a clean title and has not been in any accidents.

                                Bosch SR442X replacement Starter Motor
                                3 Bosch Drive Belts for each respective drive belt size

                                OEM Power Steering Hoses, two different sizes
                                WIX Oil Filter

                                I have set the price at $1500 and I am very firm on this price. I feel this price is fair because of the $500 box of parts as well as the fact that as sits an M30, 5 speed E28 is worth $1000 for the classic car persona which the car holds as well as the fact that with time and expertise, it could run well. I hate to be the craigslist seller who has to say that they are "firm" on price but I realize I am selling a non-running car and I want to be clear about what I want from this transaction :).

                                The only trades I would except would be some sort of starter bike with a possibility of cash on my side depending on the bike: Ninja/CBR 250, Suzuki GS500/SV650, Dual Sports, or Cafe Bikes. If you have any questions about the car or when you can see it, feel free to text me and ask at show contact info ! I'm fairly flexible and can meet after school or on weekends.
