    so. is that dude a welder, a construction worker, or a long shoreman? maybe he is a brain surgeon.
    The driver seat is likely trashed, he’s too big for an e30.

      From the reflection in that last picture, the woman taking the photo appears quite high mileage as well.

                    BMW E30 325i Convertible Turbo - $6750


                    Serious buyers only/ Its now ready for viewing and will not last long...
                    Ive owned the car for about 15 years and have all service records and receipts for all work done. Car has a fully built engine by Road and Track Motorsport and is mildly tuned by Moore Automotive to 14psi and 7000 rpm makes 353WHP and ran an 11.8. on street tires and a slipping clutch. Body has no rust and an MTECH 2 body kit, Top has no tears or leaks with clear rear plastic. Dash has 1 crack which just happened from the cold, Seats are tan from a euro M3 with no cracks. Always used Mobile 1 synth. With bigger injectors, intercooler, a meth kit and a 25psi tune this engine and turbo setup will easily reach 600WHP.

                    It needs very little and can be completed in 1 hour by Sunny at Road and Track Motorsport in Silver Spring...
                    Oil pressure switch 5 min, steering wheel centered 5 min, glove box lock 5 min, exhaust motor 5 min, air idle valve 5 min, rear camber adjusted 15 min.
                    Best Buy keyless alarm keyfob battery. and all tuning if needed in future can be done by Kris at Moore Automotive in Va. and cold start and idle needs minor adjustment.
                    I have all new parts and 2 large boxes of factory and aftermarket parts in 2 large boxes as well as 2 15x8 11 lb. BBS replicas for slicks.

                        Look, a baby Plymouth Superbird that hasn't fully grown its wing yet...

                        Seriously though, take $1800 of the price for those rims and tires, remove that hideous, IMHO, rear wing and you have a 5-speed vert in a very nice color combination with only 68,000 miles maybe...

                        Seems to me with it being stored for 12 years and having only 68k that you wouldn't see rust on the leading edge of the hood.

                        Though I prefer a tan top that matches the interior and goes much better with a red car.

                              BMW E30 325i 1988 Black 2-Door 5-Speed Manual - $10650 (San Diego)


                              FS: 1988 325 Black, 2-Door, 5-Speed, Many Upgrades

                              Selling my beloved E30. I've had this car and daily driven it for over 10 years.

                              We've been through a lot together and I've put countless hours under the hood with this beauty.

                              Looking for a good new home, please understand what your getting into when you purchase one of these cars (30 years old). While I have it in good shape it does need continual TLC.

                              I have many maintenance logs showing all the repairs and scheduled maintenance I've done over the years.

                              Here are some of the cold hard facts about the car you'll want to know:

                              Cars Location: San Diego, California

                              Year: 1988

                              Body Style: 2- Door

                              Color: Black (schwartz)

                              Transmission: 5-Speed, Manual

                              VIN: WBAAB5407J4286071

                              Miles: 243,122

                              Model: 325 (SUPER ETA) - I have done a full conversion making this a "327i" car. I purchased a "885" BimmerHeads rebuilt head. It was ported and polished, new stainless steel valves, HD rockers, 272 Billet Cam, new Valve springs. it had THE WORKS. This was installed in June of 2017. So it's VERY FRESH

                              Along with the head: I installed the larger intake manifold and had it professionally powdered coated black.

                              Installed all new coolant hoses (blue silicon)

                              Installed a 325i refurbished MAF, 325i Throttle Body and TPS

                              17.5 LBS M50 injectors which I had fully rebuilt

                              3.0 Bar Fuel Pressure Regular - brand new

                              173 ECU with SSSquid 2.7i chip

                              7K redline tachometer (even put in some cool looking rings)

                              I used all new high quality gaskets etc everywhere, I took my time and it turned out very nice.

                              New Bremi Cap and Rotor and STI ignition wire set.

                              Since then I've installed a rebuilt drive shaft and a new Bosch Starter.

                              The list goes on but you get the picture.

                              To further compliment the "327i" conversion I installed a 3.73 Diff and removed the dual mass flywheel, installing a single mass "i" one and had it machined down. I put a new clutch disk, pressure plate, TOB, etc in. Changed out ALL the tranny seals etc (I do a very thorough job whenever I work on this car)

                              Wheels / Tires: Ronal LS 15' - very nice wheels that are period correct. I had these imported from RONAL in Europe. Less than 2 years old with ZERO curb rash - they are in immaculate condition. They are wrapped in Direzza DZ102 205 / 55 / 15 all around with lots of life left.

                              Suspension: H&R Race Springs with Bilstein Sport Shocks. Every bushing and mount has been replaced.

                              Subframe mounts: new Lemforder stock rubber
                              Trailing Arm bushings: new Lemforder stock rubber
                              Rear Shock mounts: upgraded E46 " I believe " rubber
                              New Rear Springs Pads

                              New Front Strut Bearings/mounts
                              New CAB's E30 M3 offset version
                              new sway bar bushings and links
                              new Lemforder tie rod assemblies
                              New front wheels bearings/hub assembly

                              The suspension is very stiff and solid - but not nasty squeaky like you'd get with polly bushings.


                              As stated above, full conversion to a 327i stroker motor, freshly rebuilt top end.

                              Maintence :

                              I bought this car at 133,XXX miles in 2007 and have meticulously maintained it. I have many of my personal records to show you (I did all the work myself). It's had oil changes every 3 months or 3,000 miles with Castrol GTX 20W50 every time. Fuel Filters every 10K, timing belts every few years, coolant and brake fluid changes often. Air Filters often. Valves adjust every 10K, new NKG spark plugs. Tranny fluid changed every year. Diff fluid changed often too. You name it, it's prolly been done with all high quality oils, gaskets and parts.

                              With that said this is a 30 year old classic and it does have a few beauty marks and a few things that need some attention.

                              Paint: it's original and looks very good for it's age, it does of course have scratches, chips and blemishes etc

                              Front Driver Side Fender has some damage (see pics)

                              passenger side door has some dents (see pics)

                              And the body has small little dings here and there.

                              The rear wheel bearings just started to make noise a few hundred miles ago and i haven't got around to replacing them.

                              The rear Drive axles are going. You can feel it in the driveline if you aren't smooth with the gas pedal.

                              Dash has a few cracks (very typical)

                              Driver side door is squeaky (I have the bushing for it just haven't gotten around to installing it, part included in the sale)


                              Overall this is a fantastic car, I really want to see it go to a good home. I have put hundreds of hours of blood seat, tears and $$$$ into this car over the last 10+ years and want to find someone who will appreciate it and make it even better than it is now.

                              I will have it smoged for you before sale if you so desire.
