1989 BMW 325i Convertible

$_35 (4)
Most of the time we’re writing about 1980s E30s coming up for hassle-free importation we’re looking at tourings, as they were never brought here. Today, however, reader Bruce has alerted us to an intriguing E30 convertible from Japan via Canada. It’s still left-hand drive, but is in great condition after 90k miles and comes with the same plaid cloth and leather interior that was in the S38 M3 featured earlier this week. The biggest detraction is the automatic, but if you’re looking for some classy and easy top-down cruising, this would be a nice option.

There are some active bidders but it’s barely broken $1k as I write this; anything under $4k seems like quite a steal considering where most E30s are landing these days. There are a few question marks, like multiple importations, the roof repair, and a slightly overextended exhaust, but every time I look at the interior I can imagine smiling big while cruising down Highway 1. If the reserve comes off, someone’s going to get a deal.
