For sale is my beautiful E36 325Ci convertible. You will hard pressed to find another E36 convertible is this good of shape. I am the third owner of the car. The car was originally sold in Houston, TX, and the second owner also lived in Houston. The car has been located in Knoxville, TN since I purchased it five years ago. The car is 100% rust free. In fact the car has not been driven in rain since I have owned her, and has always been garaged. The car has approximately 97,800 miles on it, which equals less than 5,500 miles per year. I would get in this car and drive it anywhere in the U.S. without a single worry.
The car has the venerable BMW 2.5 liter inline six cylinder engine that I have installed Bavarian Auto high performance ignition coils, coupled with a high output generator. I have also installed a Turner performance chip and custom carbon fiber air intake with a K&N filter surrounded by a custom fitted air intake heat shield manufactured by Racing Dynamics. With the performance enhancements the car has plenty of power when needed. The car has never been tracked or raced, and always adult owned.
Along with the engine performance enhancements, I have installed Bilstein sport shocks and struts all around with new BMW rotors and pads. The calipers have been painted red with ceramic high temperature paint, which have been fitted with stainless steel braided brake lines. I installed a set of Beyern model “Five” chrome 17” wheels fitted with Michelin all-season Pilot sport radials, with less than 2,000 miles on them. During the past year, I have replaced the power steering pump and hoses, along with new tie-rods, control arms and powerflex urethane bushings. The Bilstein struts have been outfitted with K-MAC adjustable camber/caster plates that allow the front end to be aligned for better handling (the original E36 struts cannot be adjusted for camber). So needless to say the car rides like it on rails.
Within the past 5,000 miles I have also replaced all belts and hoses using fiber reinforced silicone hoses instead of the standard rubber hoses for more reliability. The radiator has also been replaced along with the water pump and thermostat. The oil has been changed every 7,500 miles with Mobil-1 synthetic oil and Mann oil filters. I replaced the radiator shortly after I purchased the car and it has been flushed and filled with BMW antifreeze every two years along with flushing and changing the brake fluid as well. The transmission fluid and filter were changed at 95,000 miles.I believe in old-school maintenance and this car has seen that.
For the interior the leather seats are very good condition, and been treated on a regular basis. I have always used sheepskin insert covers to protect the seats. I replaced the factory radio with a Kenwood KDC-X492 CD radio with USB and stereo micro connector to allow connecting your music by ipod or thumb drive. I replaced all the speakers with a set of kenwood speakers. I also installed an Infinity 8” subwoofer in the pass through opening in the rear seat. The subwoofer is powered by a Kenwood KAC-7204 1,000 watt amp mounted in the trunk.
Included in the sale is a set of custom cut hexomat rubber floor mats.
As an option, the original BMW wheels can be purchased along with the car. The wheels are fitted with a new set of Michelin all-season Pilot sport radials with less than 1,000 miles on them. The additional cost to add these wheels with the car will be $750. These original wheels can be swapped out for the Bayern wheels for no additional cost.
