1991 BMW 325ix

A weathered 325ix drove by yesterday missing a rear trim piece, but the unique bodykit always helps these stick out from the majority of E30s. All-wheel drive is becoming more common and readily available in most BMW models these days, but in 1991 it was a bit of a rarity and I doubt many people realize what those wider E30s really are. Their rarity makes it hard to find good ones, but this one comes with less than 100k miles and looking great. I like the four-door look, and the owner has really made this an all-year performer with Nokian tires and a clean Yakima rack. X-drive may have derived its name from these early all-wheel drives, but the simple “ix” is representative of a time when capability wasn’t confused with overcomplication.

Bidding is hot but the buy-it-now is pretty high, even for a very clean ix. Clearly very well cared for inside and out, it will be interesting to see just how far this rides the E30 pricewave. It’d be nice if the reserve could break a few grand before the BIN, but there’s no questioning that this is a prime example of the ix.

  1. I drove one of these once and it was a beast. It pulled like a freight train. Amazing grip!
