Description for BMW 3-Series 1987

1987 BMW 325is (E30) in bronze-beige metallic paint.
This is a 90% mechanical restoration that has taken about 6 months so far but there are a few small projects to make it a 100% complete car. It could currently be used (and is being used) as a reliable daily driver but would take someone who is mechanically inclined to finish off a few items. The car will continue to be worked on and the post updated to show which of the projects have been complete.
THE GOOD (see below for all the new parts): Most of engine rebuilt and replaced with entirely new components. If you think of a part, I've probably replaced it... Probably less than 500 miles on all of these new parts, not driven much since restored. Highlights are new gas tank, control arm, reworked cylinder head, entirely new brake system (hoses, pads, rotors, etc.), new power steering hoses/reservoir, $1000 reupholstered driver's seat with super nice leather, new fresh Michelin tires ($600 alone) that also have less than 500 miles on them, sunroof is operational, 95% of the electronic parts work (see below for what doesn't), no cracks on dashboard, m-tech steering wheel and the other 'is' performance parts (suspension, LSD), stereo works great and sounds good.
PROJECTS: Small rust underneath battery box (can/will be repaired -- am a welder/fabricator), cracked windshield (new one included in sale), A/C system currently not working though haven't tried to use it yet (I'll get back on that soon), blower control dial only works on setting 4, passenger window has to be manually, some exterior scratches and dents, transmission cannot find reverse, no working wiper fluid hoses.
This is a great car and it's been a lot of fun restoring it, feel free to ask me any questions or for any pictures.
