1986 Manual 325i convertible E30 in Zinnobar Red with black leather interior
All photos taken in June 2019.
In 2004 I became the 3rd owner (4th registered, but only the 2nd long term owner) of this 1986 car, which has been used on and off over the years for commuting and holidays and is kept to a good standard. Last year we drove it to Portugal and back where it was much admired like a well known celebrity, waves, photos and smiles everywhere. The last car I had with this effect was a pale blue beetle. It didn't miss a beat and used no oil as you'd expect. It's actually a really practical car for holidays as the boot space is quite good.
The interior is complete and original in black leather, it has patina but no rips or tears.
Everything works. It's a 325i manual with limited slip diff having done around 172 thousand miles, the engine doesn't smoke and when the weather is nice it gets used just like any other car.
Audio is a Pioneer with a small 10" sub that takes very little boot space and has subtle door mounted Alpine tweeters. The aerial is electric.
The manual hood is in good condition, doesn't let in any water and the plastic window intact and very clear.
The number-plate D30 FYL is quite cherished and forms part of the value.
The 1986 model still has the bead windscreen and original plain headlamps, quite rare now.
The windscreen was replaced a few years ago is still in excellent and very clear condition.
Resprayed over last winter to freshen up the Zinnobar red paint which is why it looks so shiny.
Recently serviced with new (fully) synthetic Shell oil, new LSD grade diff oil, NGK plugs, Bosch oil and air filters.
The brakes were all rebuilt a year or two ago with new hoses, fluid, pads and discs and are smooth, dependable and look like new, and a new rear silencer fitted.
Last year I fitted remote locking so the (existing) central locking now unlocks and locks remotely from a keyfob. The key has the original BMW leather keyring.
I now have quite a pile of paperwork, it's kept in a dry garage and been a lovely old dependable car.
No one has ever smoked in the car.
The prospective purchaser can also view the underneath of the car as we have a parking ramp.
