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.
I have a 87 BMW 325i that a friend had for 17 yrs and didn't have time to work on any more he sold it to me for $200.00 I have replaced the battery, master cyclinder, and just need a new speedometer, e-brake cable and clutch plate switch to have it in driving condition. Is this car worth hooking up or should I look for another model or what. I am wanting to put newer BMW seats in it and putting turbo on and it and painting it Black with black or grey interior with smoked out lights with black or chrome BMW wheels. It would take a little time and money but what do you think? Thanks ICE
I am not sure it hasn't been taken care of the best way possible. It is not burning oil it is runnning rough not knocking b/c it was sitting in my driveway for a year b/c I was holding it until he said he didn't have timwe to fix it then I looked at it and found out that the Master cyclinder was shot and replaced then he fell a sleep at the wheel and totaled his other car and got another car and was just going to give the BMW to the junk yard so I said I would take it. It had a almost full tank of gas boy did it stink at first.

I say go for it, if you like the car. Personally, I really like that era 3 series. You basically got the car for peanuts, so why not? Even if you invest 3g's, you can have a cool ride. A new car is new once, but a BMW is a BMW for life.
I really appreciate the advice I will I just bought a stage 3 clutch for it and I plan to buy a Turbo kit for it next month and then I am looking for a parts car so I could gut the interior and just replace the passenger side mirror Does anyone know if you can convert the manual sunroof to auto. I plan to paint it maybe a Sable black with Blk or tan interior which ever one I can find cheaper. I am going to it then paint it and drive it until I can get the interior changed. I will post pic as soon as I get the project rockin.
try your local pick a part type junkyard. There could be an old totalled car that you could get the interior real cheap. Panels seats, shifter knob, whatever. I was in one the other day and there was a guy who grabbed a whole interior for a 94 infiniti j30 real cheap.
