Car description

Selling this really great example of a rareBMW325ES.
This wasBMW's answer for a fun driving car with great reliability and economy. I have owned a few E30s and this one is special for a couple of reasons:
1) Original California Ca Blue Plate, low owner car2) Original Paint, engine, tools, interior (could be consider a negative as the drivers seat needs help)3) No cracks on the dash, most likely garaged much of its life4) All electronics work: dome lights, trunk light. windows, sunroof etc...no gremlins, well sorted car5) Upgraded Radio, bluetooth ready...6) Upgraded to a key fob with remote door lock/unlock7) FINALLY, Recent 10K labor in recent receipts (will be provided with car) to bring the car up to Spec 30 racing...this does not include the cost of the wheels, tires and Spec 30 suspension. All receipts available from a notable shop in the SF Bay Area
Some background...It is almost completely OE. Previous owner installed a new Alpine stereo with Alpine speakers (x4) with all modern technology:Bluetooth, handsfree, etc. other then that, he added all Spec E30 suspension and Team Dynamics wheels with Bridgestone RE-71R tires. This car handles incredibly!
Also hasSSSquid chipped DME for lots of torque and power. The engine pulls very strong with a very flataccelerationcurve...
Seats are in good condition, interior is 8/10 (Drivers seat, pictures, is 4/10). exterior is 7/10 (some oxidization on roof, trunk etc, but for 30 years old it shows very well).
Has Z3 shifter and feels AMAZING~!
ALL Brake systems are brand new! new pads, rotors, stainless steel lines, brake fluid, brake masters/booster all new! this thing stops on a dime!
Also added Anza rear exhaust for great sound thatisn'tboy racer. everything works on the car as it should. Recently (Dec '15) passed California smog with zero issue.
I can send you receipts with over $10k worth of all needed major maintenance DONE! Again, this 10K does not include the cost of some of the major parts (Spec 30 suspension, Wheels, tires, heating core, radio etc..)...she is ready to drive!

Reason for selling...I bought this, all spec'd to potentially get on the track, and for a bit of nostalgia as I had a very, very similar es when I was much much younger...well, this car will not get on the track and I cannot justify having this car in the garage, so, she hopefully will find a good home with an owner who can take advantage of her current set up.
The Bad:1) Drivers seat, as pictured, needs help...I had uses a sheepskin cover, problem solved.2) A/C...previous owner spec'd the car to race with eventual hopes to remove the A/C components. Fortunately, nothing was removes, but the there was a leak. I had the leak tested and they found 2 hoses leaking. $250 later, the hoses were replaced. All she needs now, according to the shop, is a recharge...I am not planning to recharge as the next owner may have their own ideas (convert to R134 or perhaps remove completely).3) The horn does not work, not sure why and have not attempted to diagnose4) The odometer stopped working for at most 3 years, according to the Carfax..it is now fixed and works...so, mileage is not entirely accurate..
