1988 BMW M3

Let’s face it, the days of the affordable E30 M3 are over. Much like the stock market, if only us enthusiasts had a crystal ball and bought up these hot Bimmers while they were cheap, it could have been a sizable chunk of the retirement fund. Nowadays, if you want an E30 M3 that won’t break the bank, you’ll probably be eyeing cars with around 150,000 miles and over, such as this M3 for sale in Georgia.

Red or Blue Pill? 1999 BMW Z M Roadster and 2000 BMW Z M Coupe

509

Want to have a lot of fun in an affordable package? Who doesn’t! Want that affordable package to be a future collectable, too? Well, the field narrows substantially from what you can choose from. There are a select few Volkswagens and Audis that fit the bill, and nearly every 911 fits the bill. But if you prefer what the engineers from BMW’s M division cook up, there are several options in the mid-teens right now. For around $15,000, you can have one of the most pristine E36 M3s, a mid-range E28 M5, a budget E39 M5, and even some decent E46 M3s. But if all of those are a bit too…serious…for you, the best answer may be to look at the Z M Roadster and M Coupe. The /7 and /8 cars are a hoot to drive, offer unique packages in both convertible and coupe guise, and seem to be on the upward swing of collectability. They also offered some of the neatest color packages available on Ms with color matched interior. Today I’ve got one of each; an Estoril Blue with Estoril leather Roadster and an Imola Red with Imola leather Coupe. Let’s start with the Roadster:

1985 BMW 524td

The term “unobtanium” gets thrown about a lot in car collectors circles, but when was the last time you can say that you saw a mint one of these with under 50,000 miles? The 524td was the first car from BMW to feature a diesel engine, in this case the M21. This was heralded as the fastest and most silent diesel of its day, but few noticed, especially on US soil. Curiously, this same engine was offered in the Lincoln Continental and MkVII, but those oil burning variants are equally as rare today. This 524td for sale in Florida is likely the best, most original E28 diesel on the market currently.

Year: 1985

This is one of the very best BMW of this era I have ever seen. It is a very rare and very low mile unmolested car. Very near flawless. The exterior is all original paint and shines like new. The car has always been garage and it surely shows. No scrapes or dents. All rubber and trim is exceptional. Glass is all original and also excellent. Tires are almost new Goodyears and the rims show no curb rash. The paint has a deep luster that can even be seen on a cloudy day. The interior is about as brand new as you can possibly get. No stains no rips no tears and no odors. The dash is perfect with no cracks anywhere. The steering wheel is perfect with no signs of wear. The grain is like new. No smells of any kind. The car was never smoked in. It would be impossible to overdescribe this car.

RHD 1988 BMW 325iT

Screen Shot 2013-10-16 at 4.26.10 PM

It has begun! The 25-year importation mark has been hit for 1988 cars, which, in my humble opinion, was an absolutely fantastic year for European cars. E30 wagons always get a lot of attention on this side of the pond because of their rarity and damn good looks. Today’s is a little rough around the edges, but I love the Malachite Green and the cloth interior. It seems every US BMW came with leather, but the cloth interior has worn better than the ever-cracked 80s BMW leather and looks proper. We may be on the cusp of a large influx of these Euro-only models, but for now they’re still rare and getting a ton of bidding attention. If you can deal with driving like a postal worker (or are one), this would be a slick ride.

If you know anything about E30 BMWs, you know how rare this car is in the US. I owned this car for about 2 years while living in the United Kingdom and have recently imported it back. The car has a March 1988 manufacture date and was legally imported under the 25+ year old provision just last month, September 2013. The car is fully registered in Oklahoma with a clear title in my name. I have not swapped the plates out yet, but I have included a picture of the OK plate.

10K Friday: What’s the name of your hairdresser? TT v. Z3 v. Boxster v. SLK

509

Arguably, I haven’t been very kind to the cars I’ve dubbed “The Three Hairdressers”. Perhaps I haven’t been fair; each has its merits, each has its own neat designs, and each has its quirks. What ties all three together, though, is bang for the buck; today, on Ebay, you can get your choice of great condition TT, SLK or Z3 for around $10,000. Each is a well engineered car with similar purposes but different execution. To make matters a little more complicated on this week’s 10K Friday, I’ve thrown a “real” sports car into the mix in the guise of a 1997 Boxster. Which is the one for you? Let’s start by looking at the Audi:

Great color, great wheels, and in my mind the one that has very clearly aged the best out of the four. The TT also is the best year-rounder with Haldex all-wheel drive. It may be considered the least “sporty” of the group, but the TT is a great little car that can easily be turned up a few notches if you’d like. This one sure looks to be in great shape. Turbo Quattros not your cup of tea? How about a supercharged Merc?

I remember when these cars were launched, and I was pretty excited that after a fairly uninspired run there was suddenly a small supercharged SL with a folding hardtop.…

1991 BMW 850i

Screen Shot 2013-10-16 at 5.08.43 PM

A pertinent point that may explain some of the details on this car is that the seller is named Cornelius. While it’s not the highly sought-after CSi, it still possesses a lovely BMW V12. I was going to call into question the overall styling, but it’s really just the large gold wheels that polarize potential buyers. The repaint in its original color is gorgeous, and on stock wheels it would just be a fantastic E31. The wheels are a pleasing design, you’d just have to be a gold-rims kind of guy or gal. This 8er really has been given the royal treatment though, with few issues or aging parts left unturned.

Double Take: 1957 BMW Isetta 300 Coupe and Convertible

509

Today is a rather unusual “Double Take”; while usually we focus on newer cars, today there are two pretty pristine and desirable BMW Isetta 300s with very different personalities on Ebay. The Isetta is a very interesting car just by itself; liscenced from an Italian company it showed up in many guises, though the BMW version is probably the best remembered. It’s also remember for being a bit of a TV star, if you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, you probably remember “Urkle” having one on the TV show Family Matters. For those who don’t remember “Urkle”, he was a quirky person with an even quirkier personality, but you couldn’t help but smile at his crazy look and lack of attempt to fit in. That, in many ways, summarizes the Isetta pretty well – it doesn’t fit in, but it just doesn’t care. Take a look at the two very different personalities we have today – we’ll start with the Police car:

Offered for sale is a head-turning and ceaselessly charming 1957 BMW Isetta 300 “Landespolizei” model, finished in requisite and hard-to-find Police Green (Polizeigruen, BMW Color Code 758) over a tan interior. “Landespolizei” translates loosely to “State Police”, and as hard as it may be to imagine, many German local and federal agencies (including the State Police) utilized the small, albeit cost effective and dependable Isetta for any number of tasks. Featuring all of the correct Landespolizei insignias and fonts, an original and fully functional Eisemann KKLE 90 flashing blue light and twin, modulating Bosch Super tone sirens, this example is certainly an attention grabber, although for legality’s sake we’d recommend not engaging the light or siren when on public roads.

Holy Trinity? Market-setting E28 M5, E24 M6 and E30 M3

509

There aren’t many new laurels that can be thrown on the BMW M cars from the 1980s. They are regarded as the source of the modern sports sedan and sports coupe; the blueprints, the originators. Those in the know bought these cars a few years ago when they hit their respective lows; since then, the M1, M3, M5 and M6 have all been increasing in value steadily. Call it a run on the markets, but as speculation and values have increased more and more “survivors” and “barn finds” keep popping up to keep the fervor frothy. Just the other day, Nate wrote up a trio of M5s that were attempting to set the market for higher mile cars in the high teens. If those owners were aiming for the sky, today’s seller is shooting for Jupiter; today on Ebay are the “Holy Trinity” of E30 M3 Evo, E24 M6 and E28 M5. Collective miles? 34,803. Collective asking price? $475,500. Now that I have your attention, let’s look at the pristine M5:

1995 BMW M3

I have always had an irrational love for the E36 M3 Coupe relative to its M3 peers. Sure I love the E30 for its relative simplicity and the later cars are performance beasts. But I still come back to the E36. These were the cars that were available when I started driving in high school and perhaps it’s just that simple: when I first began to think about something to actually drive this was the M3 that was for sale. As we’re all aware, the market doesn’t necessarily agree with me as a clean E30 might cost two or three times as much as a clean E36. That’s just fine. Here we have an Avus Blue 1995 BMW M3 Coupe with just over 52K miles on the clock located in California.
