Super clean E30. Great find. Did you have to pay a premium for it?

I found it on eBay and it happened to be local. The buyer had a high reserve and wanted almost twice what I paid.

The first auction ended when he lowered his reserve but the buyer never paid. So he re-listed and contacted me by phone. I went to see it, made an offer, he refused and another week went by and he agreed to drop the price close to what I wanted and agreed to leave the roof rack on the car, change the brakes, get it inspected and have the front spoiler and mirrors repainted - they had faded differently than the car and the lower spoiler

I LOVE the 325ix. They are one of the most sure footed feeling cars I have ever driven. Bilstein HDs make a great addition for this model if it has an old suspension.

the only option beyond the OEM replacement Boge/Sach front struts are the Bilstein HD inserts. They aren't the best option to be used along with lowering the car. I ordered a set of H&R springs, Bilstein HD front struts and Bilstein sport rear struts.

I spoke to Bilstein and they said it would be a decent mix. And by contacting them directly they hooked me up (knowing the other two cars are on PSS9 and PSS10 and part of EP)
