This 1987 BMW 325is was reportedly purchased by the seller in 2005 and has since been modified for use in high performance driving events. The car is finished in Bronzit Beige Metallic and is powered by a 2.5-liter M20 inline-six mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Modifications include an E36 steering rack, Ireland Engineering springs, a roll bar, Corbeau racing seats with harnesses, and an Ireland Engineering exhaust system. This E30 shows 199k miles and is offered at no reserve with a spare set of aftermarket wheels, a service manual, service records from 2018, a Carfax report, and a clean North Dakota title in the seller’s name.
The exterior is finished in Bronzitbeige Metallic and features chrome trim and a trunklid spoiler. Rust repair has reportedly been performed in the floors and rocker panels, and a spray-on bedliner coating was added to the lower body panels. The passenger front fender has been replaced with a DOT-R item, and the rear bumper has been removed. The seller notes dents, clear coat failure, scrapes and other blemishes around the body as shown in the gallery.
The 15″ basketweave wheels are mounted with Yokohama YK 420 All-Season tires. Suspension modifications are said to include Ireland Engineering Stage 3 Springs and an adjustable rear subframe with Poly Performance subframe mounts and rear shock mounts. An E36 steering rack and E30 M3 brake master cylinder have also been added per the seller, and the brakes were serviced in 2018. The removed wheel caps are included in the sale, along with a set of Kosei K-1 wheels wrapped with Yokohama Advan rubber.
Much of the interior has been stripped apart from the passenger-side door panel, and modifications include Corbeau Forza fixed-back seats outfitted with five-point harnesses mounted to a Kirk Racing Competition roll bar. The door locks are reported to not function properly, and the air conditioning components and stereo have been removed.
The M-Tech I steering wheel is missing the roundel center cap and frames a stock 150-mph speedometer. The tachometer functions intermittently per the seller, and the odometer shows 199k miles.
The 2.5L M20 straight-six has beeen fitted with Ireland Engineering long tube headers that feed a cat-back exhaust. Work in 2018 included replacing the battery, radiator, fuel tank, intake manifold gasket, brake cable, and fan clutch.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. Additional photos of the underbody are available in the gallery.
The September 2020 Carfax shows an accident in 1996 involving “minor damage” to the front of the vehicle and displays history in Minnesota and North Dakota from its first entry in 1991 through its most recent update in March 2019. The seller states that the car is not currently registered, and a video playlist is provided below.
