    The Snow Leopard - 1990 325is

    After searching for 9+ months for a clean example e30 I finally came across one I could not resist. I flew up to Oregon to purchase this super clean 1990 325is from a BMW CCA Member. The owner was awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better purchasing experience. All work was completed by Ryan G. MotorWorks (M3 Ryan) & Northwest Autohaus. I have a folder of receipts totaling 19k+ within last 1.5 years.

    New brakes all around with stainless steel brake lines
    3.46 LSD
    new steering rack from Maval
    all new hoses
    new radiator
    new cluster with red m3 needles
    new felt on sunroof
    new rubber on windows

    all new leather on sport seats and rear seat
    new Alpine mp3/bluetooth head unit
    M tech II wheel wrapped in leather w/ m3 stitching

    Tan door handles and map pockets
    OEM 14" basket weaves without tires
    IS side skirts
    16" white ESM wheels with 205/55/r16 cooper tires
    13 button OBC
    Rear view mirror with map lights

    To do list:
    -swap out white ESM's for Nogaro Silver Euroweaves
    -swap out the magnaflow exhaust for something quieter (OEM e30 catback or IE catback)

    Finally!

    That E30 looks fantastic! Good purchase! Get some smilies on there and it will be fully drop dead gorgeous.

          There is some serious pride of ownership going on there.

          Lovely engine bay, dig what the P.O. did there.
          Really beautiful car, congratulations on your purchase.

                      No problem, it was fun helping you hunt it down. We came across several nice/decent buys, but this one steals the show. Your patience really paid off! You got a hell of a car, hopefully I will get to see it in person one day!

                      Now for my consultation fee: First right of refusal if you ever sell it!

                              When are you going to get it CA registered? Make sure you say that you just bought it, they will penalize you if its over like 15 days I think. Im curious if they will hassle you for the car being from out of state
