This 1982 BMW E30 323i came factory-finished in Alpine White and was originally specified for the European market. It has been part of a large private collection in California and features a host of upgrades including M3 subframes, suspension, and brakes, a limited-slip differential, stainless-steel exhaust, Epsilon alloy wheels, and a freshly rebuilt 3.5-liter straight-six engine by Bimmerheads of California. This tastefully modified E30 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Washington.
This E30 is finished in Alpine White with black body moldings and mirrors, polished bumpers, dual stainless-steel tailpipes, and a black front chin spoiler. Other equipment includes a front valence with integrated fog lights, a rear fender-mounted antenna, chrome-framed kidney grilles, a manual slide/tilt sunroof, and aftermarket Epsilon three-piece wheels. The seller states the tires were replaced within the last 300 miles and the exterior remains in excellent overall condition apart from a few minor imperfections including a small ding on the left front fender. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The black vinyl interior features a pair of factory Recaro sport seats with patterned grey cloth inserts and matching door panels. Accessories include a four-spoke Hartge steering wheel, manual window cranks, electric mirrors, a heated rear window, a digital clock, an aftermarket Alpine stereo, and auxiliary gauges mounted in the lower center console. The seller notes some cracks are represent on the dashboard and the cabin is otherwise in very good original condition. All gauges and accessories remain fully functional.
This 323i was recently fitted with a replacement straight-six engine which was rebuilt and upgraded to a 3.5-liter displacement within the last 600 miles by Bimmerheads of California. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. An upgraded stainless-steel exhaust system has been installed and the subframes, brakes, and suspension components were derived from an E30 M3. The seller states that the car was driven sparingly as part of the owner’s collection and was recently serviced with a coolant flush as well as an oil and filter change.
This sale will include a toolkit, some documentation, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Take a very cool Euro 323i, mix in a 3.5-liter beast of a motor built by Bimmerheads, throw front and rear subframes, suspension, and brakes from an E30 M3, stainless exhaust and you've got something that will absolutely SMOKE an E30 M3... I do mean SMOKE IT! Great car, really well set up, and fun like hell! Happy bidding.”
