Behold: the 1986 BMW 325IX – arguably, the coolest of all E30s and the company’s first all wheel drive production car.

Launched in 1985, most were sold in the US and Canada, making European models extremely rare. This five speed manual is possibly the rarest of them all: as new, never registered and with a trifling 509km on the clock, it is effectively just as it was when it left the factory 35 years ago.

Now.

Yours for €55,170.

      It’s the oily bits that interest.
      (Swiss Tony voice)…this car is like a man; plain to look at, much more interesting under the covers.

        needs more curves, it’s arse is a travesty, I don’t care what’s under the hood, it’s not getting a second date, I’m that shallow

          It’s a typical utilitarian car of its time really. The Japanese were all curves and the Germans, boxes. I always loved the shape of this 3er – an absolute classic and something of an icon. The awd iX tho in a time when Audi owned the world of awd is the rarest of rare from those times.

            wouldn’t be the first time I have had my head turned for style over substance ;)

      And it’s definitely not the coolest as the lad says

      Its a no-mans-land car

      It would drive past
      Even at 20mph and you still wouldn’t notice

    There is nothing cool about it (or any BMW for that matter) The German stuff can be Teutonic, imposing, aggressive and without doubt desirable for many egotistical reasons. BMWs are anything but “cool” though.
