3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
218K miles, clutch and tranny replaced 20K miles ago(over 2 years ). So obviously it has not been driven much, none the less it is a 1984 with 218K. The rear quarter panel needs some work. It needs a power window motor for the passenger side window, and a A/C compressor. It will need a starter in the next year or so.It has Alloy Wheels, Sunroof, Power mirrors, new cd player and speakers.
It is listed for $1,350, he said he would take $1,200, but I think I can get it for $1,100.
Obviously it needs a paint job. But do you guys think it is worth it? The drivers seat also needs to be redone.
Wouldn't pay more than $1000 for it.
There's a lot of work that needs to be done there, and only if you're really interested in getting to know the car very well and are prepared to baby its every very expensive need, would I justify going over $1000.
Could be a real find if you have the investment potential.

Seems like not many to me.
Looking to spend around $1500 for the car itself, and looking to spend probably that same amount in parts, etc.
thats true..sorry i am still under a 100k..so im outta mileage wack...but yea i guess it could be a good deal..maybe look for something ina little bit better condition? and try for a 325 if you can find one cheap. you should look around alot before you buy cause you will always find a better deal.
it looks like a bucket of shit man. you have to wonder if the owner lets the exterior get to that stage, are the mechanicals the same? i say keep looking. especially if you want power. go for a 320 or higher
That's a bad deal if u ask me. Judging by the exterior condition and horrible interior condition the guy selling it should not get anything over what a junk yard would give him, which is $50 in Canada.
Even if the engine is in good condition it is the smallest of the E30's so prob not worth your time
keep looking man...I paid $1500US for my car and its got 155,000miles
