E21 1983 320i for sale in Southern California $1,200

E21 1983 320i with 5 speed manual transmission , Alpinweiss, for sale by BMW CCA member in Ventura County California.

Lifetime California car. No rust issues
Second owner. Purchased from original owner in November 2005. This has been my son's daily driver since 2006. This car has a Salvage California title due to a minor accident in 2007 that bent the left front fender and hood and left grille. It was a minor "fender bender" . I was able to drive it to the shop for repair. The car was only "totaled" due to its age.
Odometer broke a couple years ago at 222k miles. I estimate the car now has 250k miles.
Professionally maintained by an independent BMW shop since I purchased it. I have service records back to the time I purchased the car.

Some of the major recent service/repair items since I bought the car :

Most recent oil/filter change was September 2012. (Oil/filter changed every 3K mikes or every 6 months)

December 2011: Major service: Valve adjustment, cooling system flush, tune up, oil/filter change

September 2011: all CV boots replaced, CV joints repacked

March 2011: Fule pressure accumulator, fuel pump check valve replaced. New front brake rotors and pads installed.

December 2010: All front wheel bearings replaced

August 2010: New battery installed

June 2010: New clutch disc, pressure plate and throwout bearing installed.

The car is now for sale as it has been misfiring due to fouled plugs probably caused by worn rings or valve guides.
The motor is rebuildable I am sure. Or use it as a parts car.

Asking price is $1,200. PM me or post here if you would like more info.

Thanks for looking !
