1987 BMW 325i

A good car in need of some TLC


This has been a great, fun car for me for over 10 years, but I now have too many vehicles and it is time to part with this one.

What's still good

Body has no dings and has never been in an accident

no fundamental problems with engine - uses oil, but in range for this car and age

Tires in good shape

New hoses in 2006


What could be improved

Interior is very worn (although I have seen folks driving worse) - needs new seat covers, carpet and a couple of trim parts

Needs a new top - unless one were to garage it in the winter and only drive in the summer

Stereo works, but is very old and is on it's last legs - biggest problem is that the contacts at the back (it's a removable one) are worn thru in some places, so some speakers pop in and out.  All the speakers are in good shape, however - it's just the stereo/amp that needs replacing

power steering has leaks and needs fixing - or, drives fine with no fluid, just gives the arms a better workout

Driver's side rear quarter panel is starting to fade - can be buffed out, but might need repainting soon

Took it into BMW of Mountain View last year - they said some of the engine gaskets could also be replaced
