This car was purchased new in Europe Germany at the time, and then imported it to the US. The car was federalized in the USA. The service was done not long ago as well (all fluids being changed, the sparks and wires replaced, new hoses, new exhaust, etc.). It is a Texas car with no rust, shinny paint and it is registered in Texas. German tags all around, never wreck. The car is registered in Texas as a 1985 323i. This Bimmer has new upholstery. Original German front plate. The plastic and moldings are complete and in great shape. I have owned MANY e30 and e30 M3 and I never seen a cleanest and tightest e30 like this car. The interior is extra clean as well as the bay engine. No weird noises, and is really strong and very responsive when driving

Euro 323i BMW E30 HISTORY. quoted from: (www.jimaitken.com/323ipics.html)
The 1983 redesign, the E30, the 323i being offered from the start. The E30 was about 150Kg lighter than the E21 and the semi-trailing arm rear suspension was slightly less stroppy about wet roundabouts than the E21's Macphersons. In the 323i's case, Bosch LE-Jetronic electronic fuel injection replaced the older K-Jet mechanical system and liberated a further ten horses. The standard 323i is still a very nice little car, with a standard 127mph top speed, 7.5 second 0-60 and pin-sharp handling and was available with a close ratio racing gearbox and ZF limited-slip diff as factory-fitted options. Alpina offered the C1 package for the 323i almost immediately, with a longer camshaft and stiffer suspension. C1 set the Alpina style in use today, with wide, elegantly spoked wheels, a pert rear spoiler and no silly (ahem, AMG-type) skirts. It did sport a massive great cowcatcher spoiler and was available with the distinctive 'Deko-set', the trademark side stripes which, being the 1980s, also included the front spoiler.
Alpina C1. Not so much a racing car, more a status symbol for the 1980s stockbroker with a heroic intake of nose candy and enough independent thought not to buy a Porsche...
The C1 was oddly enough replaced by the C2, which saw a 2.5 litre evolution engine and which did see road testers go bananas. The 323i was replaced in 1986 by the 325i which saw Bosch Motronic combined digital injection and ignition management, and the C2 was stretched to 2.7 litres with the judicious use of modified BMW stock parts (525e block and conrods, 323i head and crank - the pistons were cast items by Mahle). It developed 210bhp.
