1986 BMW 3-Series 325e Additional Info:

1986 BMW E30 325e Manual | Clean Title | Clean CarFax | No Accidents

The Car has clear title under my name and is in hand. (Check CarFax Report at the bottom of the photos, Not sure why there is a report from AutoCheck for minor title issue!)

Car was originally imported from Germany back in (exact date) 12/11/1985 to the US through Houston Texas port (still has the original import papers in the glove box check the photos). Car does is not equipped with ABS or Cruise Control but has AC lines (just need to modify Compressor and piping). The car was sitting since 2009 due to bad engine (Original owner installed timing belt wrong and broke 2 valves). The car is clean in and out, original paint, RUST FREE (always garage kept), and all small dents has been taken care of with PDR.

I purchased the car from a friend in 2017. He planned on fixing the engine but never had time to do it. I offered him a price and were able to make a deal. My original thought was to fix the engine but was not worth it and wanted a little more power and make it as a daily driver car. I tried to keep the outside as stock as possible. I started sourcing parts and came across complete S52b32 engine with 78k miles with new gaskets, spark plugs, E34 oil-pan, E30 Brown Temp sensor, M50 intake manifold, racing dynamic headers, 3” exhaust, Cats, and magnaflow dual tip muffler. The swap was on my friends car who went with s50b32 ITB euro engine. I used the original Transmission from the E30 (g260) with the s52b32 clutch kit.

The S52B32 engine story, the engine was swapped into my friends car back in 2014-2015 by another friend (Bret who had a shop in Orem Utah). The engine had 72k miles at the time of the swap. The previous owner did put about 5k~ miles as it was only driven to car events and in weekends.
