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.
The first question I would ask is "At what was the timing belt replaced" (critical) and the second question would be "At what mileage were the valves last adjusted"?I am not a 325/E30 guy but about every 20,000 for the valves and 60,000 for the timing belt/tensioner seems to stick in my head.
ive seen that car in some vids and pics, not bad, but wheels are definetly not of my taste. Id say get some new ones. and carfax it definetly, and for reliability. Id have a feeling like those wheels might cause some damage sooner or later to the fenders.

"You gotta fix the nut behind the wheel before you fix the bolts on the car"
actually it looks like the wheels are sitting at a negative camber (positive? blah.) at the moment. Maybe for track? More than likely its grossly out of proportion to optimal standards though, you might want to get under the car and see if the control arms aren't sitting properly. He probally lowered the bejezus out of the car without paying attention to the handling. Looks spiffy though. How much is he asking for it? 106k isn't bad at all IMO.
