1987 BMW 325is

s-l1600 (2)
All of the 325is I’ve featured recently are in good shape for the mileage, which ranged from well-traveled to marathoner. Today’s a special day, with a low-mileage example of the E30 that is in (a distant) second place for most desirable behind the M3 unicorn. This bronzitbeige coupe with a 5-speed has 71k miles, a good half or third of the other recent 325is auctions. It wears the 1987-specific cowcatcher front spoiler, one of the more aggressive stock valences in this generation of BMWs, and while the aftermarket Fittipaldi 5-spokes aren’t anachronous or awful, they’re not more attractive than the stock rims. The crack-prone black interior looks solid and serviceable and the seats aren’t ripped, but I expected it to be a little more pristine considering the mileage. Just based on how many years it could have left in it compared to the high-mile examples, it could be enjoyed for years and still sold (likely at a premium) as a lower-mileage example. The seller knows that, and is asking at the top end of the non-M3 market to this point.

It’s not going to get much better than this. Put the basketweaves back on and you’ve got the perfect stock E30 in beige, no less. Grab your Zach Morris cell phone and get transported back to the first year of the E30+.

  1. Love the 1987 is’s – notwithstanding the mile-long bumpers, the front spoiler is so 80’s in the best way. That m-Tech 1 steering wheel is my favorite ever too. While in college, I picked up a black over cardinal red example and drove it from 157k to its grave at 202k. Many great trips all around the northeast in that car in the early aughts. Nothing I’ve owned since can really compare to it, and I’m glad I was able to experience E30 ownership when the cost of entry was still so low.
