Feeler in MA- 54k Mile e30 325e

Well, its tough to get rid of, but its time to sell my beloved e30. The car has been awesome, and has a very, very long life ahead of it. I purchased this in August of 2009, and I rolled the car over 50,000 original miles on my test drive. It is a 325e, with an automatic transmission. It is not the most desirable of e30 drivetrains, but it is an is or m3 differential swap from being a little monster. The car is rust free, and there was one spot on the tail light drain we had rust repaired. Other than that, the body is in great shape. I believe the PO had it re-sprayed, as there is 2 small runs in the clear (hidden by the bump strip), but they could be wet sanded out. These cars, with regular maintenance, have been known to go well over 250k miles, and there is no doubt in my mind that this car will have a long life ahead of it. This car will come with a bunch of spare parts, as well as 5 OE bottlecap wheels, with 3 good tires on them. The AC does need to be recharged (blows slightly cold), the dash is cracked (comes with cover) and the biggest issue is the 2 rear window switches are no good. Other than that, this thing is ready for daily driving. Iím looking for $4,600, but am open to hear trades (Miata's + cash or Mazdaspeed protege's pique my interest the most).

What Iíve put into it:
16 x 7 Konig Remember wheels (BBS RS replica)
205/50/zr16 Hankook Ventus tires
Tokico lowering kit (Blues with Tokico springs)
Bavarian Autosport ECU Chip (BavAuto advertises 140 bhp/192 lb/ft, up from 121/ 174)
Bavarian Autosport performance plug wires
Bavarian Autosport Intake
Replaced originals with Mint OE Taillights
Bosch Plugs
Bosch Distributor
Bosch Distributor Cap
New Fuel filter
Ansa Sport Exhaust
Brembo blank rotors
Axxis Deluxe Pads
OE Brake Wear Sensors
Rockford Fosgate speakers
Kenwood head unit
wired the car for amplifier and subwoofer in trunk
I also have new chrome lockstrips for the front and rear windshields, have yet to install them.
The car even has the original BMW trunk toolkit with all the tools- though they are slightly aged.

On to the (new) pics:

Beautiful car. If this was a two door I would be even more interested. GLWS.

Thanks for the kind words, I've often said 'if only' regarding the 2 doors, but the 4 doors grew on me.

Damn I miss driving my 325i. Was a 5spd, 4DR. I had 350,000kms on it when the rear suspension tried coming into the cabin. But the engine was super strong still, and so easy to work on. If only I had some extra coin and room for another car in the driveway.

Bumping this up. I'm on the fence weather I'm going to be keeping this through my move, and if I can get a good offer on it I'll probably let it go.

You have no idea how badly I want this car. I just bought the speed3 though and it would be crazy to buy this too. I'm completely on the fence but if you still have this in a month or two, I am going to seriously reconsider.
