Description for BMW 3-Series 1990

The BMW e30 is a true "driver's" car because of its size. responsiveness. and style. This car takes everything about the e30 and kicks it up a notch. Performance is enhanced by replacing the single cam engine with a twin cam M50 engine from 1995 325i. The entire drive train has been replaced: engine. transmission. and diff. A quick ratio steering rack from an e36 makes the car super responsive. The remaining systems were upgraded to handle the increase in power include H&R sport springs. Bilstein Sport shocks/struts. adjustable sway bars. etc. It took well over a year and a lot of passion to put this beauty together but the result is a wonderfully well balanced machine with plenty of power. It drives really well. I easily took it up to 100mph on US-27. just di dnot want to push more. All $$$ invested in this car exceeds $20K and I will let it go for much less. I purchased the car without my wife's knowledge and could not convince her to keep it. so no I am selling the car to keep the wife. (hope i am making the right choice) The engine. tranny. and diff came from a 95 e36 sedan with 95K mi. The chassis has approx 110K mi (the odometer broke around 95K mi when doing conversion).
