1989 BMW 320i Touring

Hot on the heels of wagon week, we have another great little E30 Touring that was brought to Virginia from Germany (probably by an armed services member) a while back. In addition to the great looks of the original 3-series longroof, you get a dog cage, buttons in German, and that 80s cloth interior that reminds me so much of my childhood. Bidding is hot but significantly lower than most clean E30s out there as I write this. It seems like the allure and rarity of these wagons is starting to wane, bringing them to a much wider audience and taking them back to their original status as an entertaining, useful, and affordable daily driver.

This is the type of E30 that is all too quickly and disappearing, and I’m not referring to its rear configuration. It’s clean, loved, unmodified, and looks like it will go for a reasonable price. The higher mileage and/or tiny 2.0-liter inline-6 might be creating a ceiling, but getting a nicely cared-for E30 under $6k seems like a great throwback.
