Selling my 94' 325i. It has been swapped from the original M50 to an LS1 out of an 02' Corvette. The swap was extensive, no corners were cut. The car is about as close to an M3 as you can get (Rear end, axles, brakes F&R, RTAs, sway bar, trim, mirrors, side skirts, etc.)
The car is very fast, sounds amazing, and has four doors making it pretty practical as well. Zero driveability issues, it idles perfect and pulls hard, 100% daily driveable. All the gauges work, (Speedo, Tach, Temp, Fuel), oil pressure warning light is also functional. I'll try to list the modifications here but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to remember them all. The car will also be getting a full detail before it goes off to it's new home.
I also wanted to leave the car aesthetically stock, I have the original 325i mirrors and side trim if the M look is not for you. The spoiler is also just temporarily mounted so it can be removed without any damage to the trunk. I was able to utilize both the Corvette oil pan and accessories, which let me put the engine as low and far back as possible while still having much better ground clearance.
If this all sounds familiar, you are not having a stroke. I was selling my green M3 with this swap back in February, and while on a test drive the person driving threw the car into a wall. The drivetrain was unharmed, everything was checked/replaced and a lot more maintenance was done while the motor was out. My roommate had this 325i, so I bought it from her and everything was moved over. This car has lower miles and is in much better shape than the M was. I have the original owners manual as well.
If you're interested you can text me at (206) 225-9588 (NO CALLS) . Due to my last experience with test drives and the power of the car, I wont be doing any more test drives in the rain. If you want to test drive it, be ready to have cash in hand.
