For sale is my 1989 325i race car with an M52B28 swap, E30 M3 5-lug with AST coilovers, DTM-style rear suspension, full aero package, 6+2 roll cage, and many mods. I have owned this car since February 2022. Too many cars // not enough time means this one has not been getting much attention, and it deserves a new home.

The car is ready to race in SCCA, NASA, BMWCCA, GridLife, SVRA, VDCA, ChampCar, WRL, just about anything. It has an excellent 6+2 roll cage, one of the nicest I have seen in an E30. All safety equipment is current & in date. The car has been approved to have a NASA logbook, but I haven't finished the process since I haven't brought it back to the track recently. It previously held a BMWCCA logbook. The car is track-ready, with fresh fluids and brakes. Ready for a full season of racing, time trials, or HPDE track days.

The car will come with some basic spares, mainly stuff specific to the M52 that I won't need any longer (coils, DME, MAF, etc.). I have upwards of 8 sets of 15" wheels to fit the car, as well other spares including brake rotors and pads, that can be negotiated as part of the deal, depending on what you need.

The body has been resprayed BMW Space Grey. It's a good paint job, but not perfect. Has some chips, scratches, and panel misalignments. Interior, door jambs, engine bay, and trunk are all Zinnoberot (red). Has some minor surface rust near the battery tray and trunk jack tray, and on the underside of the floor pans – nothing major. The body has been banged up and repaired in the past, as is typical with race cars. There are waves in the front radiator/core support and frame rails forward of the subframe. The car aligns and tracks straight.

Located in Charlotte, NC. Open to negotiation after you see the car in person. The car comes with a North Carolina bill of sale and a clean Georgia title in the previous owner's name. I can deliver within 2 hours.

Highlights include: M52B28 swap w/ M3 cams, E30 M3 suspension and brakes, IRP "DTM" style rear trailing arm camber and toe adjusters, Bimmerworld V3 carbon wing paired with quick release front splitter, excellent roll cage design. Ready to race.
