New to BMWs, bought an '85 325e.

Hey everyone, my name is Stoney and I'm totally new to BMWs. I bought this 1985 325e for my girlfriend a couple weeks ago and she loves it.


The thing is super-clean and only had 110,000 on it.
It's an automatic, and I beleive I've been told it has a 2.7l in it?
I'm a big fan of imports and I'd love to get to know as much as possible about this car. I'm a big Audi, VW, Porsche guy so I'm ready to add BMW to my brain.
Well, I'm sure I'll be posting up soon. Peace. ~Stoney

Hey Kraut, thanks man lol. It's nice to have an almost (fiance) permanent model in my life! I was going to go black on black with my 'rocco but I think I'm going to stick with the stock gold and maybe some black rims. Things change though lol. This E30 is sick though, she's going to drive in auto-cross this year with it just for fun. Peace. ~Stoney

That has 110K on it?! It looks brand new! Is the interior that clean too?
I wish the previous owners of my E30 had taken half as much care as yours...

You'll like this place, plenty of helpful people...

Will do. I'm going to go looking for an over-heating problem today so that will be my intro to BMW other than some cracked fuel lines I had to replace. I'm located in beautiful Bozeman, MT. The land of tons of oh so curvascious back roads with speed limits of 75. Peace. ~Stoney

I would say is worth between $4-5K, but something tells me you got this for much cheaper... 2 grand?

My dad bought my poor little 318i at an impound auction for about $400, and something tells me I'll end up spending lots more getting it back into shape...
