Car description

1991 BMW E30 325iX138.5k Miles4-Speed ZF 4HP22 Automatic TransmissionAWD4.10LSD Front and Rear

This BMW 325iX is my current daily driver and may have higher miles when purchased. The car has been a great project for me to restore and I have put a lot of effort into that task. I have owned the vehicle since January 12th, 2013. A lot of work and new parts have gone into it to bring it back to spec. Major work to the drivetrain has been done – see below new parts. I found this car in Southern Kansas with a solid body – no rust. This car has brought many smiles to my face and now I am ready to let the car go to another enthusiast. If you are looking for a great little example of BMW technology that has good bones and a clean interior with little work necessary to bring it back to its full potential, this is it.

IMPORTANT: The car is by no means perfect and not a show car, but most of the difficult and costly major mechanical work has been completed (see below list of parts and work). It needs mostly cosmetic work on the exterior after a rather minor incident sliding off the road and a few minor things on the interior. The body is solid, No rust holes. Surface rust only on the rear subframe which does not hinder it's structural integrity. I have a photo-documented journal of all the work done from tear down through re-build. Do not hesitate to contact me for additional details.

Work that's been done (there has been much more; however, this is what initially came to mind):
Engine:- Running engine from an '89 iX with 140k miles installed at 137k miles- New freeze plugs- Almost all coolant hoses replaced, no cooling system leaks- Vacuum hoses replace, pcv, brake booster, etc.- Carbon build up cleaned from piston tops- New oil pan gasket- Air filter replaced- New spark plugs- Rebuilt OEM Bosch 12lb injectors- New oil pressure sensor- Replaced oil cooler- New motor mounts- New O2 sensor- Timing belt replaced with motor swap at 137k miles- New water pump- New intake manifold gaskets- New thermostat (care was taken to make sure that it was the correct thermostat)- All new accessory v-belts- New crankshaft position sensor- New ignition coil- New spark plug wires and distributor rotor- Many other gaskets replaced- Fuel filter has been replaced- New Spectra fuel pump- Throttle cable was adjusted in February and makes the throttle response feel much more lively
Exhaust:- Bosal OE Muffler- Custom catalytic converter professionally installed- All new exhaust gaskets
Drivetrain:- Front and Rear 4.10LSD, both have been replaced with healthier units- Strong transfercase, was inspected and is very clean- Transmission pump has been replaced- Transmission intermediate plate has been replaced- New transmission filter and fluid change- New bowden cable for gear selector- Custom braided stainless transmission cooling lines that are much easier to manage and make transmissionremoval and servicing much easier- New gaskets for front differential- New cover gasket for rear differential- Front CV axles/halfshafts have been rebooted recently- AWD System is in excellent working shape, no issues at all, VERY fun in the rain
Steering:- New tie rod end links- Steering rack has been replaced within the last 3 years- New power steering lines and o-rings, no leaks!- Control arms replaced with brand new about 3 years ago
Brakes:- The brakes are strong and have plenty of life left- The brake system does not leak anywhere
Interior:- All lights are working- Black comfort interior, charcoal carpet, light gray headliner- Factory seats and steering wheel, seats and steering wheel are very clean- Sleek Kenwood head unit/reciever, fits well and does not take away from the vintage feel of the car- Factory premium Harmon Kardon rear speakers- Factory speakers also include front kicker panel speakers, and tweeter pods in the front doors- Speakers have a great sound and clarity to them- Dash is clean, but has several small cracks- Black leather parking brake boot with red stitching- Instrument cluster is fully working- Power windows work!- Power locks work, except for rear driver side, which can be locked/unlocked manually- Manual sunroof works great! Opens in 2 directions, it can lift up or retract
Climate Control:- A/C is removed; however, a full A/C system built for r134a will be included- A/C Evaporator has been re-insulated- r134a Expansion valve and cabin lines have been installed and are ready for use- Heater core does not leak
Other:- No check panel lights!- Fully passed MO State Inspection on 3/6/2017- New Nitto NT Extreme All-Season Tires, were installed within the last 2 months- Spare wheel included (needs a tire)- Z3 Antenna- Windshield wiper blades have been replaced within the last 2 years- New wiper lines, and electric fluid pump- Hinges and pins on front doors have been replaced over the summer- New sway bar end links- Just replaced hood shock- The battery is in great shape!- No warning lights, or check engine light- All fuses and relays are in good shape
The main issues with this vehicle are:- Low engine idle when the vehicle warms up- The car needs body work- Needs a new paint job- Needs some suspension work, but still handles exceedingly well- There are also a couple of small leaks (a couple drops of fluid per day)- Needs a new blower motor for climate control- There are the typical issues that come with a project
Spare parts that I will include:- R134a A/C System- Front Brake Ducts- Front Fog Lights- Front Bumper Cover (Needs minor work and paint)- And a few other pieces
