This 1987 BMW 325is is finished in metallic gray over red leather and powered by a 2.5-liter inline-six paired with a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip rear differential. Equipment includes a sunroof, air conditioning, and a trip computer. Service in preparation for sale consisted of an air conditioning system recharge, repair to the oil cooler thermostat and seat latches as well as the instrument cluster, and replacement of the timing belt, valve cover gasket, brake master cylinder, and radiator. The car was first registered in Virginia and remained in the state until being purchased by the selling dealer in 2020. This E30 is offered in North Carolina with recent service records, a tool kit, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Virginia title.

The car is finished in Delphin Grey Metallic (184), and the selling dealer notes that the hood has been repainted. Equipment includes a sunroof, a 325is-specific front air dam and rear spoiler, and US-market bumpers and lighting. Paint fade on the roof as well as marks from a removed sunroof air deflector are shown in the gallery below.

Silver 14″ basketweave wheels with BMW-roundel center caps wear 195/65 Michelin MX4 tires. A full-size spare with an older tire is located in the trunk. The brake master cylinder and a brake pad wear sensor were replaced in preparation for sale.

The Cardinal Red interior features leather-upholstered sports seats with adjustable thigh support as well as color-matched door and side trim. Equipment includes power windows, a trip computer, a cassette stereo, and a plaque mounted to the ashtray. Service in preparation for sale included replacement of the sunroof switch, repairing the seat mechanisms, and an air conditioning system recharge. The selling dealer reports that cruise control does not work and the radio plays static.

The M-Technic steering wheel frames a 150-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The speedometer was removed and repaired with new odometer gearing and bulbs in December 2020. The six-digit mechanical odometer reads 158k miles. Total mileage is unknown.

The 2.5-liter M20 inline-six was factory-rated at 168 horsepower and 164 lb-ft of torque. Service performed in preparation for sale included replacement of the following components:

  • Timing belt
  • Valve cover gasket
  • Engine oil and filter
  • Rocker shaft plugs
  • Hood strut
  • Radiator

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential.

The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Virginia and North Carolina beginning in March 1988. A driving video is shown below.
