      I have an ’87 BMW E30 325is race car up for sale. The car has had its interior removed and a roll bar installed, so it is a track car and not a daily driver. The body is straight with a few minor imperfections, and the original engine is strong and well maintained. The car comes with a few boxes of takeoffs and spare parts. I don’t recall all of what’s in them, but they’re included. I bought the car with the full intention of starting HPDE in NASA or PASA, but I recently got married and now my free time isn’t as plentiful.

      Car was used by the previous owner for autocross and BMWCCA club racing. Would be a perfect HPDE car, instructor’s car, TT or race car.

      I’m willing to consider trades if you have a well-sorted daily driver (E30 or E36 BMW, A3 GTI, VR6 Golf/Jetta, B5 A4) that’s a manual transmission with working a/c and a record of preventative maintenance. I prefer coupes, but am willing to look at sedans.

      Recently did some maintenance work and replaced the seats and harnesses with new items. Car is posted on the NASA and BMW websites, too.

      It's because Justin is too busy taking up the Moderator slack here on Vortex.
