What Is That Pedal For? 1989 BMW 325i E30

Unless you’ve been hiding under an old BMW for the past few weeks, you probably have read something about the new 2019 BMW 3-series, and you may have caught that it launches without a manual gearbox option!?!?  That’s it, I’ve had it — I’m never buying a new BMW again…oh…wait…I’ve never purchased a new BMW and probably wouldn’t if I had Bill Gates’ money because used BMWs are so delectably cheap and available with manual gearboxes and non-hideous styling.  Like this 1989 BMW 325i offered for $3,500 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.

For sale I have a 1989 BMW 325i with the 5 speed manual transmission. The car runs strong and has been very reliable since I’ve owned it over the past 4 years and the 25,000 miles that I’ve been drivig the car, including cross country road trips. If you’re looking for a car that’s super fun to drive on canyon roads and reliable to commute in then this is it.
