5-speed manual 1988 BMW 325i Convertible – Lee’s Summit, MO

Seller offering 1988 BMW 325i convertible with undisclosed miles for $6,250.   Equipped with a desirable original 5-speed manual transmission, seller says it is rust free and the body is straight.  Appears to have seat covers but seller says the interior is in great condition and includes a custom sound system.   Seller has had the car for 8 years and says it has been maintained well and always used premium synthetic blend oil. Several maintenance issues taken care about 2 years ago include new timing belt and water pump.  

The 325i is equipped with a 6-cylinder 2.5 L engine which produced 169 hp and either an automatic or manual 5-speed transmission.  The 5-speed transmission in the 325i was the Getrag 260 – considered an improvement over its predecessor.

The 1988 model was the first year the aluminum “diving board” bumpers were replaced by a shorter plastic bumper in a body-matching color.  269,074 E30’s were produced in 1988.  85,246 E30 convertibles were produced from ’86-’93 and just 19,136 of those were 325i.   Per the seller, a small number of these had the 5-speed manual transmission.  While our favorite color combo was white body and blue convertible top – we like the black top as well.

This 1988 BMW 325ic is for sale in Lee’s Summit, Misssouri.  Check out seller’s listing on Craigslist for more details and seller’s contact information.

    Hi. Mileage is about 175K. Odometer stopped working a couple years ago but we have a pretty good idea of what mileage we accumulated after it stopped working. The seats do have seat covers that really fit like a glove. Thanks.
