Can you believe that it's Friday again?! Well, it is! We had some snow flurries earlier today, and the forecast is calling for possibly up to two inches tonight. In that case, Reggie will be swapping out the tires on the 525i, since it has summer ones on right now!
It's been a busy week, so let's jump right in to some bimmer goodness! We have a 1989 BMW 325ix for sale! The perfect winter car! Just as I took these photos, the snow started flying again! FOR SALE: 1989 BMW 325ix (E30) - All Wheel Drive 4-Door Sedan: Red/tan, Auto, Power Windows, Power Mirrors, Sunroof, upgraded CD Player & a crack-free dash. 199,300 miles. The ix / all wheel drive is a relatively rare find and great for winter time driving. Car has been regularly maintained at a local independent BMW service specialist shop, maintenance records available. Timing belt & water pump are up to date, fairly recent OEM exhaust installed. Runs and drives well! Not a perfect car, but very nice for the money.
Nick took these great photos the other day - thank you, Nick!
If you're interested in this all-wheel drive bimmer, please give us a call at the shop 317.773.0074! This 2000 BMW 323i came in for a transmission fluid and filter change, as well as a new cooling hose.
And Reggie has completed the rust removal on the 1990 BMW 325i! She'll be sent off to the paint shop for any final body prep and new paint!
This 1987 BMW 325 was in for the following work: crank shaft seal, shift rod seal, output shaft seal, output shaft lockplate, clutch kit and clutch pressure plate (which includes removal and re-installation of the transmission), remove and replace clutch pilot bearing, remove and replace flywheel, engine rear main seal, shift rod joint, lower boot, upper boot, shift knob, and replacement of transmission seals while the transmission was removed. This bimmer's owner loves her car, and has been working hard to get it running great before moving on to any cosmetic work. She's definitely got the right idea! And after all this work, she's loving her car even more! Below, Reggie is ready to reinstall the transmission:
Once it is in the proper position, he can bolt it in place:
Next, Reggie works on installing the shift linkage:
