Went and did it.
 
Pulled the trigger and picked up an 89' 325ci. Super clean, 110K on the clock. So far I love it! So classy looking, turns more heads than the dime-a-dozen new bimmers on the road.

AC isn't working, it's missing a belt. So, either it's just the belt (I wish), or the belt was removed because of a bad compressor. So likely, I'll be needing a compressor.

Anyone recommend a good place to pick up parts for this car? I'm interested in stuff like, a compressor, some interior parts, whatever clip holds the drivers side under-dash up (it keeps falling down on my legs) and possibly a set of OEM BBS wheels from the E30 generation, or newer knockoff BBS that look like the old ones did. I'm not gonna mod this car, just keep it looking classy.

It spent most it's life sitting in a garage. One owner, she kept every reciept since 1989. I found mice poops in the airbox. lol

lol still a nice find you got. FYI its ic. ci was after the e36 gen i believe.

congrats on the find, check craigslist and ebay for the rims, what you're looking for are commonly referred to as "basketweaves".

In this thread there's a discussion of where to find parts about midway through that pretty much covers it:

Finally, I wouldn't worry too much about A/C in a vert, especially in New York. I used to drive a Wrangler when I lived in maryland and the only time I used the A/C in it was when I was too lazy to take the top down, and I don't think that would be much of an issue with an e30. Just my .02

Nice-not many around with this mileage.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. Placing an order with Pelican now for a set of emblems and a compressor belt. Nice forum you guys got here!

Soon I promise! I'm still in the detailing process, been busy with work. Interior is 95%, ordered a few pieces here and there from Pelican. I'll have some shots up once she's all clean.

Nice find. Look up euroweaves and these are the wheels that look best on an E30.

PC325E 08-25-2009 11:45 AM

I believe the rims on the right are "Ronal LS's" (steve will know better) they are the best looking wheel IMO if you cant afford OEM BBS RS's. However, they are no longer for sale in the US so you need to go onto ebay.uk. The have a deeper lip than the basketweaves.

Very clean E30! Enjoy.

Krumchev2 08-25-2009 08:14 PM
