1984 BMW 325e w/ 325is engine
Knoxville, TN $2000 OBO
I bought this e30 with every intention of prepping it to race in the Champcar series but life gets in the way. I’ve owned it for a little over 2 years and have worked on it off and on but just don’t foresee finishing it let alone racing it. I did do a bunch of work to it over the years but since then it’s just been collecting dust as you can see in the pictures.
Car is a 1984 325e with a 5 speed manual with a straight body no structural rust and very limited rust in general (small stuff in the floor). I did patch some stuff in the driver front wheel well The car runs, drives and stops. Needs auxiliary wiring, gauges, roll cage, exhaust and other safety equipment to be race ready. Summary of work and new parts is below. Been awhile since I have priced these things so someone please correct me if I’m way off on the asking.
Planning on backing it out of the garage for more photos later this week.
