This is my 1989 BMW 325iX. I purchased it from Virginia two years ago: it was the best example couldfind of an iX that was in good physical shape as wanted rust-free car. love the E30 and had never owned one, andthe all-wheel drive was good way to “justify” having another car which wouldnot be RWD toy that has to be put away in the winter. This car was the best could find in four months ofsearching at the time. am putting itup for sale now, along with one of my other cars (1973 Alfa 2000 GTV), as ammaking room for another acquisition. I do like this car lot – the E30 really is classic youcan drive every day, and with the AWD in the 325iX you can do so even inwinter. recently acquired 1990 911Carrera 4, which admittedly is more exciting every day classic, hence anotherreason the E30 is being offered. I have put good deal of work into this car over the pasttwo years. Highlights are below and Ihave receipts and service records for it all. · Body is rust free. Paint is in great shape as the photos show. It really does look this good in person –white is color that ages well and is forgiving to scratches and wear, unlikemy favorite color, black.· AWD works as verified on lift. No leaks or issues with transfer case andcoupling.· Interior is also excellent. o No tears or even scuffs in the vinyl upholstery. o Headliner is great.o Dash has no cracks or scratches or fading.o Carpets are clean and intact.o All buttons and controls present and functioningas intended (more below).o The arm rest between the front seats is Husco unitwith integrated cup-holders.o The car has the winter ski pass-through in therear center armrest.· Service/work performed:o New shocks, springs, tie-rods, tires (SumitomoTouring) – July 2015o New timing belt and tensioner, valve covergasket – July 2015o New front brake calipers, pads, rotors – July 2015o Odometer gears replaced – Aug 2015o Replaced heater core, heater valve – Aug 2015o Replaced oil filter housing seal and changed oilto synthetic 5W30 – Aug 2015o AC converted to R-134a – Aug 2015§ Hoses, compressor and dryer belts replaced aspart of this project.o Tune-up: Sep 2015 § New plugs, wires, cap, and rotor.o Cooling system overhaul: Sep 2015§ New water pump, radiator hoses, pump pulley,thermostat, temp sensor, temp sender, seal rings.o Power steering fluid and suction hose replaced –Oct 2015o Replace battery and horn siren – Dec 2015o Fuel level sender and pressure regulatorreplaced – Jan 2016o UUC short shift kit installed (fantasticupgrade) – Feb 2016o Oil service and fluids refresh – July 2016o AC belt replaced and compressor lubed – July 2016o Brake service – Aug 2016o Brake service – Aug 2016§ New rear discs, pads, sensors, left caliper.§ Brake fluid replaced.o Exhaust – Nov 2016§ System replaced with cat-back unit.· What does not work:o The rear windows do not go down. identified the problem as new motors forboth sides – fuses, power, are all correct.o I have not replaced the motors as these are eachclose to $400 new and could not find used at worthwhile price. also never have need to open the rearwindows.o Despite my efforts with the fuel readingrepairs, the fuel gauge is not accurate after ~150 miles on tank. use the trip meter for accuracy and thisworks well enough that have not pursued further repairs to the fuel reading.· Everything else works:o Heat works great, AC (converted refrigerant)works great. All vents and directionalswork as designed.o Sunroof is manual and works well. No leaks.o All lights, electronics, gauges (other thanfuel) work well.o Even the cruise control works.o And the heated seats.o No warning lights on dash cluster or on thediagnostic panel above the rear view mirror are on. These diagnostics all work as they should.o Spare wheel and tire, jack, and factory tool-kitare present and correct. o Central locking works properly and installedkeyless entry also – works great.o This has the BMW eight speaker stereooption. replaced the head unit with aKenwood KMM-BT312U. Bluetooth mic isinstalled above driver side visor with hidden wire. Sound through the eight speakers is very goodand the screen color is matched to the orange gauge lighting.o The BBS wheels are OEM 15” units. The car drives really well and tracks straight andtrue. It is fun and chuckable the way anE30 should be, and it really sings at above 30 mph in the E30 sweet spot. The UUC short shift kit is greatupgrade. If it did not compete with my 964, and did not want thegarage space, would hold onto it. Thatbeing said have priced this knowing the work that has been put into it: afuture owner will be in good shape reliability wise. would not hesitate to drive this across thecountry and it can certainly be used as daily driver. Please feel free to contact me with questions. Thank you.
