For Sale a 325i Manual Touring - If you are put off by a vehicle that was a CAT 'C' (Commercially uneconomical to repair)in 2014 then this isn't the car for you. Bear in mind the car was only worth ?£1500-2000? in 2014 and insurers commonly base there decision on 60% of the value - it doesn't take much to write a car off nowadays
If you're still reading then I'll try to fill in the detail for you.
The car was purchased from a dealer in Lincs (GJR Autos) in 2016 - the Cat C damage (I was told the car had had some Off side front corner damage) had been repaired to a satisfactory level but on getting the car back to York I set about making sure that the vehicle was sound. The front end of the car was stripped down and the repairs examined - it had probably been done to a 'selling dealer' budget but generally the repair looked to be satisfactory. Nonetheless I measured the chassis legs, comparing the measurements with the two other E30's that I own - the measurements are correct and so I am confident that the chassis was not damaged in the accident. The inner wings show no signs of damage. FYI I qualified as a marine engineer many moons ago and was a BMW motorcycle technician for a period during my career.
However, The wing had been repaired (filler) and they hadn't replaced the bumper mount dampener. The light fitting assembly frame had a crack. Two wings were purchased and the whole front end (wings, bonnet, valance, bumper) of the car resprayed (£700) - a new 2nd hand bumper mount and light assembly was fitted. Various clips and self tappers replaced.
Considerable work has been carried out on the vehicle - here's a taster. Timing belt, water pump, Clutch, rear crank seal, welding (rot cut out and new metal seam welded) to 1x scuttle, jacking points. 'new' tailgate, New BMW rear heated screen, New aftermarket windscreen, suspension put back to standard height (new springs and shockers), drop links and suspension bushes, BBS wheels refurbished, brakes overhauled including New discs pads etc, sump gasket, injectors refurbished, new dist cap, rotor arm, ignition leads, Oil leak from front of cylinder head was fixed by a new head gasket and bolts…..the list goes on and on...…
Vehicle has fully working OBC (no bleeding screen)
Photos show as much detail as I can (limited by the six photo requirement of the site)- dashboard has a crack but has been repaired and not is in the usual place. Aftermarket gauges can be removed by the purists - I used no screws or glue to fit. Headliner renewed in black material. Seats show no wear. Bodywork is sound with NO rust. Underneath of the car is clean (even better than my 2008 Volvo XC70) ALL electrics work as they should.
Mileage 128470 miles.
