    This BMW is one of the last 500th or so that was ever sold in North America.

    -New original OEM Master Break Cylinder
    -New all four rotors and break pads
    -There had been an issue with leaking Rack and Pinon witch has been addressed and rebuild.
    -Resent Valve Adjustment

    -The one and only damage is on the driver side fender, see picture.
    -The transmission shifts and feels as it should, clutch is excellent, however, my mechanic has told me that at some point the throw back bearing will be in need of replacement. This is a maintance issue

      Thank you for checking out my 1985 Toyota Tercel SR5 4WD (AL25)

      This vehicle has been my daily driver for the last two years. It has carried my family up and over the Cascade mountains, to the beach, and through the woods. It has been reliable, economical, and amazingly capable in inclement weather. There is an avid community of owners online with helpful resources and encouragement.

      Purchased in 2018 with 123,000 miles from its prior owner on craigslist. The car has lived on the west coast for its whole life and is free of any serious rust. Finding missing pieces and incrementally improving this car has been my hobby. Few come up for sale in this shape; please ask any questions you have.

      The car has broken down on me once in my 15,000 miles of commuting; I lost compression on my way home from work. I had always intended to get a more powerful engine swapped into the vehicle and used this failure as an excuse to do so. The 4WD system engages and works well, lacking an additional differential the Tercel puts equal power to all four wheels. The transmission features a 6th extra-low gear that can only be engaged when in 4WD and brings the gear down to a 'try and stop me' 17.6:1 final drive ratio.

      I was attracted to this car for its boxy 1980’s style. The argyle seat ('85 only) and geometric headliner patterns give it some unironic uniqueness. Any modifications that I have made can be undone in an afternoon or two.

      Decals: I worked with Upper Left Coast Wraps to design and install the decals. They are quality automotive vinyl and look as good today as they did when installed. The decals are one of the things people have most commented on and enjoyed, and personally they make me smile. I removed the round sticker from the roof rack; the P/N/W decal from the rear hatch; and the club sticker from the rear window.

      LED Lighting: Philips Ultinon LED light bulbs were installed in the dome lights, turn signals, running lights, brakes lights, reverse light, and side marker light indicators in 2018.Yellow LED Fog lights have mounted on the front bumper. On/Off button located near center console.

      Cline-o-meter: Also called an “Inclinometer” was scavenged and installed from a 1983. Mounted on the center of the dash, this auxiliary instrument was standard in SR5’s for the 83 and 84 production years but found itself removed from the 1985 SR5. Cluster informs the driver of both the side-to-side and front-to-back angle of the vehicle; additionally there is an indicator light for when 4WD is engaged.

      Roof Rack: Gutter mount towers includes keys. Cheap cargo basket has been useful for my kids bikes.

      All season wheels: 14” alloy ‘Triangles’ 4x100 bolt pattern from a 1980s Toyota MR2 (AW11). Kumho Solus 195/70R14 tires that were installed new in Spring 2020. Due to their size there is minor inner fender rubbing at full lock turn; I just don't (could be hammered out).

      Winter/snow wheels: 13” alloy ‘Waffles’ 4x100 bolt pattern. These are the optional factory alloy for the car. Mounted new in Fall 2019 are Nokian Nordman 175/70R13 studdable (un-studded at this time).

      Backup/Dirt wheels: Stock factory 13” steel wheels with unmatched tires that hold air but should be replaced.

      Current Swapped Engine: Toyota 4AC, 71HP; from a mid-80’s Toyota Corolla. Intended to rebuild this engine, however I needed it back on the road so in it went. The engines mileage is unknown. The HP gain was VERY noticeable in the performance of the car. Direct swap with 3AC, oil pan/pickup and everything from original block.

      Original Engine: Factory Toyota 3AC, 63HP: Original to car; lost compression at 132k miles. Block is complete and has not been diagnosed or rebuilt; included in sale.

      Carburation: Authentic Weber 32/36 electronic choke carburetor installed new 2020. Several non-essential emissions related components were removed/bypassed at this time. The original carburetor and air cleaner are included with the sale.

      Front spacer lift: Machined 1” aluminum strut spacers from a fellow Tercel owner in Canada provide 1". Spacers require no modification and can easily be removed if you would like to return to factory height.

      Rear shock lift: Monroe MA700 air shocks in rear of the vehicle. With no cargo or rear seat passengers I keep it the shocks at 20-25 pounds and have observed a lift of 1 ½” from stock. No modifications were required; return to factory is equally easy.

      Air Shock Control: The air shocks are kept at pressure and adjusted as needed by an Airlift 25804 on-board compressor. Compressor is located in jack storage; controller mounted under glove box.

      This is a 35-year-old daily driver economy car; I have attempted to be very thorough in my description and encourage you to ask any questions that you have. I am a hobbyist first and foremost not a mechanic, I made no attempt to complete work I was unsure of. I worked with an off-duty mechanic and Toyota enthusiast whom I have befriended or need be took the vehicle to an area shop.I have enjoyed building this car out, and I hope you like it.

      It is currently registered and insured in the state of Washington; Includes a clean Washington State Vehicle title with no lien/loans and Bill of Sale.

              I am open to reasonable trades and offers. This car has a lot of work into it and is definitely not you’re everyday e30. The IX was BMW’s retaliation to Audi’s Quattro. It was the first consumer car BMW ever made with AWD. Last time I checked 91 coupes were sold world wide in 1991.
              The car has working A/C and heat.
              Heated seats both work.
              Power windows and sunroof work.
              Fair warning there is a copy of the Sponge Bob Yellow Album stuck in the head unit. Call it a bonus if you’d like.
              Car runs strong and handles well.
              Parts list is attached below.
              Refreshed head
              272 cam
              Heavy duty rocker arms
              Radiator and all hoses
              Water pump
              Fuel pressure regulator
              Head gasket
              Fan clutch
              All accessory belts
              Timing belt and tensioner
              Fuel pump (less than 500 miles)
              Bilstein struts/shocks
              H&R springs
              CV boots
              Sway bar link
              Intake boot
              Full magnaflow exhaust
              M50 17lb injectors (just cleaned less than 500 miles ago)
              Steering wheel (1 of 50 from a limited run done by USPL) and quick release
              Refurbished gauge cluster (all function)
              AC has fresh r134a refrigerant and has been converted from r12 (have a spare compressor if you want a second I can throw it in for another 250)
              New wiper blades

              What it needs:
              I’m pretty sure it could go for some power steering fluid but that isn’t too big of a job and it needs new hoses for the washer fluid nozzles.
              The car is 29 so it does have its flaws. Light dings and scrapes are present as well as cracking on the interior. Headliner needs to be reglued in the back.

                        Sweet Baby Jesus! How bad is the stink inside THIS E30?!?!?! The crack is potent in North Plainfield! $550 might be a more realistic price.

                        Price is negotiable
                        Hello, I am selling my 1990 BMW 325i 5 speed transmission with 195,xxx miles.. I've driven this car daily since March 2017 and now I have decided to part ways with my E30. This car is 100% stock and matching numbers. Since March 2017, I have replaced a few things on the car to keep it maintained. I have replaced the following:
                        -All belts including Timing Belt
                        -Radiator and Fan
                        -Water Pump
                        -Spark Plugs
                        -Brakes & Rotors all around (June 2020)

                        -Desperately needs an exterior paint job on verticals on car (Original 30 year old paint)
                        -Sunroof sometimes doesn't sit right and small drips of water could get in if not careful
                        -Front side upper and lower tie rods and lower control should be replaced soon
                        -Rear driver side door doesn't lock when the other doors lock
                        -Rear driver side window doesn't go down when you press the button (I have the new window motor and old window motor in trunk)
                        -Fuel indicator is stuck on E. Once I am low on fuel the low gas light works. (Cluster works except fuel indicator. Could be a problem with sending unit)
                        -Blower Motor has failed. When blower motor was working, I did have working AC and Heat.

                        Despite cons listed above, this car drives super well and it stands by the Ultimate Driving Experience that BMW states. This car is 30 years old but by no means its not perfect. I simply do not have the time to fix it and keep the beautiful car going further and further. This is a perfect car for someone who wants to keep the E30 tradition and experience going or someone who's looking on making it a project car. Please call me for more information on the car or to meet up to take a look at the car. I am only available on weekends or sometimes during weekdays at night. CASH ONLY.

                              2012 CHEVY SONIC (no interior!) - $3,000 (Alexandria)

                              2012 Chevrolet Sonic LT 1.8 ***Interior not installed, but available***. 88,000 miles. Manual trans. New Hankook Kynergy tires. Nearly perfect body, paint, and glass. I just clay barred and waxed the whole car. Trailer hitch!

                              High MPG (40 mpg) commuter. High volume cargo capacity (fits as much cargo as a small pickup truck and more than most SUVs). -or- Great candidate for off-road rally car or SCCA B SPEC track/race car.

                              History- In 2012, General Motors donated this Chevy Sonic along with a 2012 Chevy Camaro SS to a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C. that taught kids to build race cars. In the first month, the car was prepped as a SCCA B SPEC race car. All interior parts were removed for weight savings and speed. All fluids were replaced with redline fluids. Sponsor stickers and racing stripes were put all over the car. Before they ever even put the Sonic on the track for racing, the owners of the non-profit divorced and the husband got this Chevy Sonic. He used it a few times for trips to move his household to Florida and then listed it on Craigslist in Florida. I bought it in 2014 at around 12,000 miles to replace my commuter, a 250,000-mile Hyundai Accent. I removed most of the sponsor stickers and racing stripes. It was getting way too many looks for me!

                              I used the Sonic to commute on I-10 in Florida until 2018 (70,000 miles), then moved to NOVA and used it for my 15-minute commute daily. It is a pleasure to drive and I baby it, trying to get the best MPG and smooth shifting/clutch work. The clutch feels great.

                              Maintenance- regular 5000-mile oil changes using Mobil 1 10w30 and AC Delco filter every time. Cabin air filter and engine air filter just changed. Oil changed at 85,000.

                              ***There is a Check Engine Light for one code associated with the thermostat. The thermostats have an electronic heater controlled by the computer and the heating element is bad. I have a new one and will be replacing the thermostat this weekend and flushing and refilling the coolant. I will then delete the code and there are no other codes.

                              At one time I bought an entire interior from a donor car. So, I have a full interior, but would rather sell it separately. Negotiable.

                              It has amazing cargo area, great for camping, big dogs (I used to put a large dog bed in the back for two big dogs.) Great for hunting and fishing. Does well on dirt and gravel roads. Rides great in snow and ice. It is much lighter than stock weight of 2600#s. Likely around 2,350# without interior and handles curves and accelerates very well.

                              NADA value $5,710.00 minus interior = asking price of 3,000 negotiable.

                              Carfax available for serious buyers.
