With the advent of 2014, yet another model year of forbidden fruit opens up to us car enthusiast. This time around, it’s 1989. We’ve seen a few of these BMW E30 Tourings arrive stateside so far, and this 1989 example is one for the driver with sporting intentions: a 325i with the 5-speed manual gearbox. The car is located near the port of Bremerhaven, Germany, making it convenient for anyone seeking to export the vehicle.

Engine: 2.5 liter inline-6

Here is the quick family transporter of the E30 series for sale. No modifications, no tinkering, not run down, but a beautiful piece which had only three caring owners. Do a little Internet searching and you will quickly notice these cars are not as widespread as you think. The 325i Touring is one of the classic cars with enormous appreciation in value; the end is not yet in sight. This Touring here is in the most beautiful color, Diamond Black Metallic. Features include:
Sport seats with seat heating
15″ cross-spoke wheels
M-Technic steering wheel 1
Limited slip differential
In addition, the car was converted to Euro 2 and H&R sport springs mounted in combination with Bilstein B6 dampers. Thus, the car has a comfortable ride with firm road holding. While E30s are known to rust, there is none here!
Tailgate rust free
Doors rust free
Jacking and underbody rust free
Strut towers rust free
Rear plate rust free
Wheel arches rust free
Only minimal, small rust marks where, for example, small scratches on the paintwork are. Otherwise rust free and preserved. Summer + winter tires, recently changed timing belt, inspection and the steering gear were replaced. In addition, an entire folder of receipts since 1991, when maintenance was done.
No known technical defects, it is not a new car, but a very nicely preserved specimen. Thus, there are a reasonable amount of minor signs of aging. Visits are only possible by appointment. Please call with any questions.

A 1988 320i Touring (6 cylinder) that we featured on our Facebook page recently sold for $10,000 on eBay. That car had less miles on the clock, so even though this is cheaper, expect to be up around the $10,000 to $12,000 mark by the time your shipping and related importation fees are squared away. That’s about what these five-door E30s are pulling in the US market right now, for the few that have made it to these shores. This is one of those cars high on my list to seek out and import. Hopefully there are other like-minded enthusiasts out there with the same idea, in the hopes that we might see a good numbers of these show up here in the next few years.
