Collector Quality 1988 BMW E30 M3

 

Spotted is a 1988 BMW E30 M3 for $60,995 USD.  This car has only 35,585 Miles and is Diamond Schwartz Black over black interior.  This is a euro spec M3 that is 100% stock.  It has all original body panels as well as all service documentation and paperwork since 1994.  The exterior paint is original, has an awesome finish with few notable defects or flaws. The interior is well-kept and shows amazing with a crack-free dash, supple leather, and no significant wear areas. This 2-owner vehicle was originally purchased in Europe where it spent a good majority of its life before being imported to Japan to be displayed in a private car collection containing 8 other E30 M3 examples.   I was obsessed with having one of these cars when I was young.  I used to go the local Vasek Polak dealership to see them in person.   I never did get one but people in my school did and they were modified by AC Schnitzer or Hartge in various states of tuning.  Not sure if th Euro Spec M3 can pass Californa emissions but I sure would like to own this black on black one.   If anyone remembers the 2.5 Liter AC Schnitzer M3 poster in the late 1980’s, that was my dream car.   Unfortunately, now I must pay over twice the amount for a used stock version but that is life.   I would like to modify it to be the AC Schnitzer car I always wanted.  Last night I was going through all the forums to check out the suspension and engine mods that people are doing these days.   It is fun to reminisce about the M3.  The car had held up well all these years and it is still exciting to think of all the possibilities one can do to one of these.

The drivetrain is in original form. The stock M power S14 fires right up and drives great. The suspension feels as if the car was just rolled off the assembly line. The M3 is equipped with the very desirable Dogleg CR transmission which shifts like new. No squeaks or rattles anywhere! The M3 has received a R134a AC Conversion and it blows cold. Exhaust system is original and unaltered, does have the stock cat installed. The body and undercarriage are well-preserved and solid with no rust or corrosion. It is evident this rare car has always been garage-kept and properly maintained. . This M3 would make a nice addition to any collection or will be an awesome low-annual mileage driver!
