1987 BMW 3-Series Additional Info:

For sale is a 1987 BMW 325i (E30). I have owned this car for approximately 2.5 years but I am downsizing to only one vintage BMW (my yellow E36M3). Prior owner did a lot of work to this car, and I have kept it up at Leblanc MotorWerks, a BMW specialty shop in Lafayette. I have receipts for all the work done while I owned it. Debadged, M-Technic spoilers and skirts, with upgraded suspension, E36 steering rack, Jim Conforti Chip, etc. I paid $10k for this vehicle, but due to a parking lot mishap in November of 2017, I am cutting the BuyItNow price to about 2x the cost of the needed repairs (new front drivers side fender). Other than that, no accidents, clean title and Carfax. Prior owner tricked it out to track, it seems, but I have never tracked it and I don't believe anyone else has. Lovely car to drive, feel free to contact me to come check it out if you are interested.
