Pleased to offer this incredible restoration work of art on a
stunning California BMW 3 series that was given an open checkbook
as well as documented meticulously by the owner. This car was sold
new out of Riverside California where it was delivered to Dr.
Michael & Diane Sackett where it remained in their ownership and
anticipating a move to Minnesota. They never moved and enjoyed the
BMW for the next 26 years and compiling over 300k miles on this
car. In August of 2011 Ward Good purchased the car and had it
transported to Wyoming, Michigan where it was treated to a very
extensive full restoration of the car to restore it to its glory
and have a car that was properly brought back to life.
This process began quickly and with the help of a trusted German
service center, German Automotive in Grand Rapids the car was
stripped down and just about all mechanical, electrical, powertrain
and drivetrain were gone thru and either replaced, rebuilt or
restored. The body was treated to a glass, trim and seals removal
and sandblasted and painted in its original color of Alpine White.
Natural leather interior was replaced with a very similar setup
that shows remarkable. All parts were ordered from the local BMW
dealer or sourced from other parts centers and all being OEM parts.
Car was featured from the factory as just one of 2,647 325ix
produced in 1988 and less than 20% were believed to be sent over to
the North American market. Car was nicely optioned with the
following factory features; front spoiler, power sunroof, power
windows, sport seats, heated front seats, A/C, cruise control,
on-board computer, map reading light, BMW premium sound system, and
M-sport leather steering wheel. The rare 5spd manual was also
featured as many of the x series were upgraded with the automatic
The owner has documented, cataloged and photographed just about
every aspect of this rebuild and the car comes along with an
extensive stack of 3 ring binders full of receipts, service bills,
pictures and history of this car. It is very impressive and a true
love affair with this car. Yes, the car does show well over 300k
miles on the odometer, but this car is as new as you could ask for
and the advantage you have of buying basically a brand new 1988 is
a rare and unique chance in history.
