Bought an 89 BMW 320i sedan today

The car has 144,500 kms on it and the interior is in excellent condition except for the driver side floor mat but I may be able to steam clean it. There is a little surface rust on the car but it has been undercoated and is in good shape. Sorry for the poor quality pictures it was getting dark out and I was using my phone. All of the electronics work in the car the way they are supposed to. It's got 4 wheel disc brakes I am not sure if that was an option but definitely cool. From what I can tell from the info I found using the vin number and the paper work to the car it is a German built model that was sold in Japan.. (It has a sensai sticker on the back??) it seems to have come to Canada in 2006 and had just under 50,000kms on it at the time.

Looks like you got some work to do, but looks decent.

Get rid of the autotragic.

Yeah i was in the market for something that needed work, i've always wanted to build a car of my own so i think its perfect for what i wanted. not too far gone to be repaired easily but just enough that im going to learn a lot as i go. The body is in really good shape with just a bit of surface rust to touch up and the back wheel wells need a little attention on the inner lip.

I had planned to get rid of the autotragic for sure but i am also considering doing a crazy swap like a Mustang 5.0. I dont know though the more i spend time with the car and the more i dig for information on it i may just manual swap it and keep the original motor.

Here is a link to some more pictures of the car and some of the documentation and other goodies i got with it
