1991 BMW 325ix

I was visiting Europe again last week, but through the magic of social media it feels as if I lived through the first blizzard of 2016. You know, there’s the people who like to post photos of their vehicle temperature gauge or the folks who kvetch over the mere sight of a snowflake when in reality those were the same people complaining about a warm winter in the first place. Let’s face it. It’s winter. It snows. Deal with it. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I would say it would be mighty tempting to own a car like this 1991 325ix just so I could post photos of everywhere I’d go with it in the white stuff.

A few Words about The Owner
I know the owner of this car personally and he is a well known car enthusiast in the Northern Virginia area. His garage currently houses multiple Porsches, Ferraris, BMW’s, Mercedes etc. He is a meticulous owner and takes excellent care of his cars. Previous buyers of his cars have been very pleased with their purchases. This car will not disappoint. This IS the guy from whom you want to buy a car!!

For a car nearing 100,000 miles, this E30 is sure sharp and brings back a lot of good memories of my Alpine White 325is, albeit with the intrigue of foul-weather capability. Some people might consider the automatic gearbox in this example a blessing or a curse. I would certainly fall into the latter category. While not the most valuable of E30s, the 325ix is fast becoming a favorite, mainly due to the fact that so little of them were sold here in the US. $7,000 to $10,000 is about the norm for where these cars sit. If this one had a 5-speed manual, it would bring slightly more in terms of value, but it is getting harder to find clean, unmolested originals of these Audi quattro competitors. Automatic gearbox or not, the chance should not be passed up on this one.

  1. Could you swap out gear box on a ix as easy as a non ix gear box?
