This 1987 BMW 325is has been with the seller for 26 years and 34k of its 154k indicated miles.

Delphin Metallic paint is shown under indoor and outdoor lighting in the gallery below. The seller notes that the plastic is-specific front valance has been sanded and repainted twice during his ownership due to chips in the corners from curbs. Several scratches and chips can be seen in the gallery.
