FS Chicago 2000 BMW 323i Black/Black 5spd no sunroof $1750 - needs work

Hi. I've decided to try and sell my 2000 323i 5spd as a project car. I bought the car about a month ago in near perfect running condition, I drove it down to Chicago and about 4 miles into my trip home to Michigan it overheated(high temp, no smoke). So I left it there at my friends house, where it is now. I went down there the other day to replace the thermostat as I thought that it was what caused the overheat. After replacing it I drove it around by his house for a while, the temperature stayed in the middle for about 15-20 minutes then started climbing(I shut it off before it got into the red) I am not sure if it is another part of the cooling system(ie electric fan, Water pump) or if it is a head gasket issue but I am selling the car as is. It does still run very nice actually, the clutch is good and the transmission is smooth. The car would make a perfect e46 track car since its lighter, as it is bone stock with almost no options(no cruise, or sunroof, 15" wheels) and it has a salvage title

Specifics:
2000 323i Base model
2.5 straight 6
5 speed manual
145,000 miles
Black with black leather and piano black trim
No Sunroof - great for a track car, lighter, and more rigid
15" wheels
Cd changer

issues:
overheats after 20 minutes
rear driver window does not work
clear coat is peeling on the hood and trunk pretty badly, and a little on the roof
Previous Owner put ugly fake ///M fender vents on it

I'll try to get pictures up soon, I am trying to be honest about the car as is not perfect at all, but would be a good base for a track car or other project.
