5k: Seller Submission: 1987 BMW 325is E30 2-Door

The E30 generation BMW 3-series solidified the Bavarian automaker’s reputation for
building clean looking, relatively quick, manual transmission equipped
sport sedans.  The market for the M3 version is currently riding a crazy wave of appreciation, but the standard 325 is a much cheaper way to get your E30 groove going.  Find this 1987 BMW 325is E30 2-Door offered for $4,500 in Omaha, NE via craigslist.  Seller submission from JD.

Prices vary by region for modern classics like the E30, and I think a car priced like this would sell quickly in the SoCal market, but perhaps in the state Where the West Begins, the market is different.  If the rust mentioned by the seller isn’t too bad, perhaps it could be a good candidate to take the multi-state trip necessary to get to a salt-free environment.

Under the hood is the M20B25 “small six” that puts out 168
horsepower and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.  The seller has put some cash into fixing a number of items as listed in his ad and while this isn’t a show car, it seems ready to be daily driven.

The seats look a bit worn, but the dash and door cards look presentable.  Perhaps this would be a good candidate for a set of OE Recaro sport seats from a donor BMW.
