This is the car by which to measure many, many others. The details are there – things I didn’t even know were OEM correct, such as the Roadside Assistance sticker on the tool kit lid. I knew I wanted the OEM sheepskin seat covers, and after seeing the first set in the virtual flesh in ages, I want them even more. It’s hard to believe the original owners drove this car as sparingly as they did, but for some folks, that’s the point of a nice-weather summer car. I hope the seller gets his wish, and that this car goes to another owner who cherishes it like his late father did. If the price continues to rise and the bidding stays hot, I suspect the cost of entry will be high enough that the kiddy crowd won’t get its mitts on it; then again, the automatic will eliminate the tuner crowd almost immediately. A good thing!

There’s something about Alpine White on a BMW that looks just right. Just ask fellow GCFSBer, Jeff. He owns two Bimmers in this hue…if you could call white a color. This M3 Coupe for sale in California sent to us from a reader of ours, Jeff, is super clean and has covered just over 63,000 miles. Short of the ultra-rare lightweight, this one is close to E36 M3 perfection.

It’s unusual to find an E30 M3 in a barn, shed, or any other structure abandoned and forgotten under layers of dust. It borders on impossible to find one in such condition that is an extremely limited-production Europameister edition, of which less than 150 supposedly exist. While I suspect this car did not end up forgotten in a barn (and that the barn was more a matter of convenient storage than any sort of attempt at entombing it), it did incur a few dents and paint damage along the way. The Europamesiter-exclusive Macao Blue Metallic paint is stunning even in this forlorn state, and goes perfectly with the extended-leather gray interior, another unique feature of this limited production model (and really, who doesn’t want a leather-wrapped console?)
