Up for sale is my 1989 Bmw 325i E30.  I purchased the car with the intention of restoring it and no longer have the time or money to do so.  Engine is very strong, runs and drives great.  I've been commuting back and forth to work in it around 40 miles per day.  It gets around 27 mpg.  It's a 5 speed manual, black, with grey cloth interior.  Drivers side seat is ripped, rear seat is missing some cloth at the top, one crack in the dash, and the rear passenger window does not roll down.  Everything else works fine including the air conditioning.  The paint looks really good and shines up very nice.  There is some minor surface rust as shown in the pictures on the drivers side.  One small hole about the size of a pencil eraser in the driver rocker panel.  The passenger side is rust free.  The speedometer and odometer do not work.  The mileage shows 192xxx but has a little more.  The tires are Falken Ziex912's in fantastic condition with at least 80% tread left.  The clutch engages and shifts as it should.  The rear ujoint needs to be replaced, there is some clicking when you slow down, only heard from around 5mph to 0.  It does not affect the driveability of the vehicle as I use it daily.  It has new brake pads, and I will include some additional parts with the sale that total about $200.  Parts included were purchased as preventative maintenance and do not need to be installed immediately.  I will include a timing belt and tensioner and a very nice silicone vacuum line set that includes every single vacuum line for the entire car, pre-cut and ready to install with instructions.  These E30s are becoming more rare every day and a nice, rust free example will set you back $7500+.  Its a really fun car to drive and I had big plans for it but just don't have the funds to restore it currently.  This is a no reserve auction.  The car is located in central Kentucky.  Please do not bid if you don't intend on following through with the transaction.  I do reserve the right to end the auction early should it sell locally.  Thank you for looking and please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is the world's first front-drive Bimmer [w/videos]

Fri, 14 Feb 2014 10:32:00 EST

While BMW has been showing concepts for its Active Tourer for over a year, they never seemed entirely real. Why would BMW, a company that has built its image on sporty, rear-wheel drive sedans, move into the five-door, front-wheel-drive market? The answer is still not entirely clear, but the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer is very real. It launches in Europe later this year and is rumored to come to the US in 2015.
To brand purists, a front-wheel drive BMW may seem anathema to everything the company has built, and the production Active Tourer has clearly been built to provide drivers with a luxurious but utilitarian package first and foremost. It is 170.9 inches long and rides on a 105.1-inch wheelbase, but despite its compact dimensions, its high roof allows for 16.53-cubic-feet of cargo space with the rear seats up or 53.33 cubic feet with them folded flat. Its general appearance is nearly identical to the previous concepts, except with a blunter nose and cleaner lines. The front end wears BMW's traditional dual circular headlights and naturally, while the profile incorporates the company's traditional Hofmeister kink into the greenhouse's rear pillar. The interior has been designed to be especially useful with a sliding rear seat, adjustable rear backrests, fold-flat backrests and optional features like an automatic tailgate and panoramic sunroof.
Unlike both previous concepts, none of the Active Tourer models at launch use hybrid power. For Europe, the hatchback is going on sale with three engine options. The basic version is the 218i Active Tourer with a 1.5-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder with 134 horsepower that we just previewed in the 2014 Mini Cooper - good enough for average fuel economy of 48 miles per gallon in the EU cycle when equipped with a six-speed manual. The next step up is the 225i Active Tourer with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 228 hp and offers 39-mpg average fuel economy. Finally, there is the there is the 218d Active Tourer with its 148-hp, 2.0-liter turbodiesel and 57 mpg average fuel economy on the EU cycle. A six-speed manual is standard on all of them, but there is a six-speed automatic option for the 218i and eight-speed automatics available for the 225i and 218d. All-wheel drive will be available on future models.

2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is ready for your favorite roads

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 17:23:00 EST

We've known about the ins and outs of the lovely BMW M6 Gran Coupe for a while now, but that doesn't mean we weren't happy to see the thing in the metal for the first time, here in Detroit.
The M-tuned Gran Coupe utilizes the same 4.4-liter forced-induction V8 that powers both the BMW M6 and the M5, with an output of 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. The fast four-door brings up 60 miles per hour in just 4.1-seconds - the same sprint time as the M6 coupe and a few tenths quicker than the M5 - and up to a limited top speed of 155 mph.
We love those performance figures - this is one new Bimmer that we're amped to get some seat time in - though we're not super crazy about the selection of chrome wheels on this particular show car. Tells us what you think about the hotted up Gran Coupe in comments, below.

BMW i8's three-cylinder sounds like it's shaping up quite nicely

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 18:28:00 EST

We've run across some rather interesting news... or perhaps we should say interesting sounds. The folks from Bimmerpost have scrounged up a short video showing a preproduction BMW i8 running through a few gears in Sport mode at a quick pace, and if you were concerned that the somewhat eco-friendly nature of the upcoming German sports car would neuter its ability to stir the aural senses, fret not.
Judging by the lovely noise coming from the engine compartment of the i8 in the video, BMW's expertise in tuning high-strung, small-bore engines - remember, BMW Motorrad has quite the penchant for well-conceived motorcycle engines - has come through loud and clear. Now, it's worth mentioning that BMW's controversial Active Sound technology will be included with the i8, so the production car may not sound exactly like this version, which is running with the tech disabled. Owners won't have the ability to disable Active Sound on production i8s.
In related news, Bimmerpost reports that BMW will equip the i8 with an external Active Sound Design system to go along with its Pedestrian Protection System. That means those on the outside will likely hear piped engine recordings from the rear and a sort of "howl" from the front in order to warn pedestrians that the otherwise quiet (when running on electricity, that is) car is approaching. It will also feature technology that can stop the car before contacting a pedestrian.
