BaT Auction: 1987 BMW 325iS 5-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 1987 BMW 325iS is a 2-door example powered by a 2.5L inline-six paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and limited-slip differential. The seller purchased the car in November 2016 and it has since remained largely unused. Service work in July 2017 included a new clutch, timing belt, engine seals, and more. This E30 shows 70k indicated miles and is offered with partial records, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean New Hampshire title in the seller’s name.

Sheet metal is finished in Cinnabar Red paint, and no history of accidents or other damage is listed on the Carfax report. The early 325iS featured a deep vented front air dam with large rectangular fog lights, large aluminum bumpers, small taillights, and a deck lid spoiler.

Factory 14″ basketweave wheels are shod with Falken tires, and a matching spare wheel wearing an older Pirelli resides in the trunk. The trunk lid seal was recently replaced.
