******As you can see this car has been up since June. I've had it priced high and just have purposefully made it difficult to sell.

Conversion of motor and transmission have been professionally swapped with the more reliable and fuel efficient M50B25TU motor. Donor engine and matching transmission off a 1994 325IS. This engine brings the advantage of the more reliable timing chain setup (vs timing belt), individual coil packs, more horsepower, and overall reliability. Excellent example of this year and model. Always cared for and properly maintained and serviced. Never abused, always garaged. Runs and drives excellent. Drives as good as it looks. All services are up to date. It is in near pristine shape for a 27 year old carAll work professionally performed by Legendary Autoworks in Chula Vista, CA

I am sure more pics are wanted, just pm me your cell that way I can text over the pics.

The air freshener is NEW CAR. I normally just sport one a week in my car. I do the same in my e90 M3. No reason why there are three other then I like the smell. I normally throw them in the trunk so there are maybe 30 in there. I'm a bit OCD. I replace them a lot in all my cars, it is a cheap pick me up.

I beat there are more then three if I look around.

That's an amazing looking e30! What kind of wheels are on the car? Are they BBS RS or reps?
