1986 BMW 3-Series Sport description

I purchased this car a couple years ago because it was in such great shape. (It was obviously restored a few years back.) In the last year I have made it even better. Just to be sure I replaced the timing belt and water pump, hoses, etc. If you know anything about these cars you know that is #1 priority.
I also installed 4 new tires, all shocks and struts, replaced all steering system,parts tie rods, bushings, etc. I installed keyless entry, new stereo, high quality custom fit floor mats and more. I replaced the rack and pinion boots, and repaired all leaks. I have probably done more but cant recall because I restore cars every day and this is just one of many I own.
This car was a daily driver for my wife for the past two years so I had to make it safe and reliable. She drove it about 50 miles a day all week long with no problems. The car is still in excellent shape and I would drive it anywhere. She just purchased a 2017 so this little gem is just sitting in my shop taking up valuable space. I keep it indoors and it has been garage kept since we owned it.
You can tell by the pictures the car is not perfect. It looks like it was restored before I owned it but it is not recent. However, you can see by the photos there is no rust in rockers etc. No leaks etc.
Summary
The good:Car is safe and reliable and needs nothing. Put gas in it and go. Great daily driver. Seats and interior are great, paint is shiny, AC works, no leaks, must I go on?
The bad:It is missing an exterior trim piece above drivers door. The paint is not perfect on hood. Looks great from far but if you look close at certain angles you can see it has blemishes. I tried to show in pics. The odometer does not work (normal for an e30) and the speedo sometimes quits working.
The ugly:N/A.Nothing is "wrong" with this car
Last thing. I have been buying and selling classic cars and other items on ebay for many years and have 100% positive feedback. I intend on keeping that. So I will say again. The car is NOT perfect. It is over 30 years old. It has chips in the paint, the carpet is not perfect, etc. its an '86.But.... it is one of the cleanest unmolested stock e30's I have ever had. Funky factory stock.
I you have question please call before you bid. 95+ positive feedback or higher bidders please. Also, NO PAYPAL!!!! Cash or personal check only.
