    FS: 1990 325is black 5spd

    Located in NJ (near Philly).

    1990 325i 2dr. Black on grey (black front seats though) , originally an auto car. I bought it with unknown miles, odo stopped around 39k. Now it has 42.5k (fixed the odo gears when i got it), but title says 100k (nj dmv asked for a # when registering, i didn't know what to say so they put 100k ).

    TLDR: mechanically in great shape, but body needs TLC.

    - 5spd swap (original auto 3.73 diff)
    - schmiedmann headers
    - mangaflow cat
    - Ireland Enginering cat-back exhaust
    - 17lbs ford injectors
    - sssquid chip (91)
    - Bilstein B8 sport shocks with H&R sport springs
    - Garagistic X-brace
    - bavauto front strut brace
    - Ireland Engineering aluminum radiator
    - z3 antenna

    Other fixes done while i've owned the car:
    - Reupholstered front sports seats (heated)
    - every part of the a/c system except under the dash and the pipes was replaced. Though no cold air right now.
    - suspension bushings mostly (if not all) replaced.
    - brake lines from front to back and from the rear t to the wheels replaced.
    - brake calipers replaced (rotors and pads too but pads probably need to be done soon).
    - right rear axle and wheel bearing replaced.
    - led lights in instrument cluster
    - Kenwood headunit
    - recently replaced CPS, spark plug wires, and coil.
    - alternator is aftermarket (pepboys i think)
    - rear main seal replaced.
    - belts replaced (probably 5 years ago now)

    The bad:
    - big dent on rear quarter panel.
    - dings and dents.
    - rear bumper has a crack.
    - hood has a crease in it.
    - rust spots under the doors (see pics).
    - rust hole under battery tray (not that bad).
    - interior in meh shape other than the 2 front seats. I was going to swap a black interior in and never got to it.
    - radio has bad coil whine. Speakers not good.
    - a/c does not blow cold. High rpms when turning on a/c (before it warms up then it's normal).
    - cluster: rpm gauge sticks. Temp gauge all over the place. Low gas light doesn't light up (gauge works, bulb is good)

    - a sunroof
    - driver side mirror
    - outside door mouldings
    - an ecu
    - bmw tools for the trunk
