The BMW E30 M3 has built itself quite the cult following. The car is revered for a number of reasons, from the fact that it is the first ever M3 to the way it actually handled. The thing is, prices for such cars have also gone through the roof, reaching a number of digits that’s hard to comprehend for a 30-year old car. That’s where this particular model shines.
Up for grabs on Bringatrailer.com is a 1991 BMW E30 M3 with 54,000 miles on the clock, imported from Japan and looking great. The car was painted Lachsilber Metallic when new and it seems to have kept its color rather intact over the years still looking ravishing to this day. The interior is also quite well maintained, especially considering its age and mileage. Yes, the driver’s seat upholstery has been redone but even so, it’s all nice and tidy in there.
According to the ad, the car was serviced at BMW of Tokyo ever since it was delivered and the seller claims to have all the paperwork to document every single operation it was done on it. Furthermore, the owner claims that the car has not been involved in any accident, but he does leave so leeway though, by introducing the ‘to his knowledge’ phrase in the mix.
As far as changes done to it go, the car received Bilstein Sport shocks, a Panasonic CD player, M-Technic steering wheel and the aforementioned reupholstered driver’s seat. Considering how most E30s end up these days, we’d say that’s totally acceptable, considering that the bid at the time of writing this piece is just $30,000. Now, the question is, how much further does it have to go for the current owner to be willing to let this M3 go?
