The 1989 BMW 325ix we featured last month did not sell and is back up on offer. With four doors and a five-speed manual, this one should grab the attention of the E30 fanatics.

Even though it was my first car, I’ve lost a bit of interest in the BMW E30 3 series over the years. I’m not sure whether its the fact that other cars have grabbed my attention or I’ve just grown bored with them. But there are still two E30s that still fascinate me. One is the Touring model, of which examples are just starting to trickle over to these shores. The other is the 325ix. The all-wheel drive E30 was somewhat rare, with just under 30,000 produced and a little over 2,600 examples sold in the US market. This particular 325ix for sale in Virginia has been restored and is equipped with a manual gearbox. In Alpine White in four-door trim, this is quite the desirable, eye catching combination.

It’s no secret that E30 prices have been remaining strong, especially the rare versions like this all-wheel drive 325ix. We saw a four-door 1989 325ix with 93k miles sell for $7,900 back in February of this year. That car was an automatic and not nearly as refreshed as the example we see here. I’d guess this car might pull in the $10,000 to $12,000 range, given the desirable spec and level of work done to it.
