Owned since 2009, I have dialed in the car mechanically over the last 13 years. While it is far from a show car, it is a joy to own and drive. Headers installed under previous ownership give the engine a great sound and the recent addition of Pertronix electronic ignition, Bosch Silver spark plugs, wires, ignition coil, starter, an e28 radiator, and new belts and coolant hoses provide improved reliability. The car does have rust and minor issues common with cars its age but I hope it will find its way into the garage of another BMW enthusiast who will care for it and enjoy it as much as I have. Many more pictures and videos are available on request.

Paint and exterior

Rust is present on the door panels, hood, lower door frame, and under the trunk gasket. The front passenger & driver foot wells are also rusted through. To my knowledge the frame is structurally sound. There is some peeling in hood clear coat.

Upholstery and interior

Blue leather interior. Seats are in excellent condition with the exception of tears in the drivers seat. Original wood shift knob. Renown steering wheel w/ M color stitching. Carpet is in great condition w/ coco mats in front & original mats in rear.


I have put about 10,000 miles on the car during my ownership, primarily driven during summer months.


5 speed conversion from original 4 speed manual done during previous ownership.
