E30 325i Convertible

For sale, I have a 1989 BMW 325i E30 convertible with a 5-speed manual transmission. This is a great-running, reliable E30 with extensive service as documented below. Factory Alpinweiss with tan top, with evidence of a good quality original-color respray at some point prior to my ownership. This is a rust-free example of an E30, stored in a garage or under a cover for my entire time of ownership. The top is in excellent shape with no yellowing of the rear window, no apparent seam damage, and no rips or holes present. The car will also come with a custom UV reflective cover. The audio system has been completely upgraded with a pioneer head unit and alpine speakers. Service Items: 2015: • Top-end rebuild including valve job, replacement of two valves (one intake, one exhaust), valve adjustment, and headgasket replacement (never overheated, just part of the valve job) • Accessory belt replacement • A/C service including replacement of the dryer, expansion valve, and system refill using R12 • Replacement of odometer/speedometer gears 2016: • New battery 2017: • Upholstery repair/recovering of driver’s side seat bolster and high leg support as well as rear seatback capping to prevent seam splitting • New glove box installed • Full axle c/v assembly replacement (both sides) Known issues: • Even with the new plastic gears, the Odometer doesn’t function properly. On a hot day, the speedometer and odometer will work, indicating that there’s a bad connection/solder in the cluster somewhere. I have tried several times to correct the issue, but since the impact is minimal, I haven’t pursued it further. The car will also come with a parts cluster. All other components of the gauge cluster function correctly. The odometer currently shows ~107k miles, and I believe this to be closer to 190k based on the accounts of the prior owner and miles driven during my time of ownership. • Power radio antenna doesn’t function - I just use a USB flash drive with the upgraded head unit anyway. • The dash has two small cracks • Minor cosmetic imperfections to be expected with a car of this age • A/C blower motor squeals intermittently on certain speeds This car gets a ton of attention anytime I take it out, and has been perfectly reliable in the time since the valve work. I intended to sell last year, but once the weather warmed up, I couldn’t quite part with it. I’ve probably put less than 10k miles on the car during my time of ownership. I’m just looking to free up the space and pass this one along to be enjoyed by the next enthusiast.
