I bought this car Summer of 2002 stock, it had dead air conditioning (taken out), sunroof, but very clean straight, and the interior was in great shape for its age. I have done plenty of mods to make it look more sporty. And have tried real hard to keep it looking it "era". I love this car.

I was packing kitchen stuff before a move using newspaper as packing material, when I came across the clasified. I found this BMW with "transmission problems". I checked it out and it turned out to be simply the slave an clutch master cylinders. Easy fix, so I bought it and have been hooked ever since. The car came from California, therefore little rust. It as a marginal repaint job, yet the previous owner, replaced timing chain, brakes, bearings, oil pump, all new hoses, etc... The most work I have had to do is a new waterpump.
