It’s been a while since I’ve felt like reiterating my unhealthy coveting of M3s. After posting a 530ix wagon with an auto, a car about as far from my bread-and-butter desires, I guess it’s a good time to get back to the basics.
This M3 is about as perfect an example as I’ve seen in a long time, and may just be as clean as you could find anywhere these days. With a low 73k miles and modifications limited to easily-reversible basics like great Racing Dynamics wheels and strut brace. The rest is beautiful, original, and untouched; this car has been doted upon in a good way. An inspiring rarity in the M3 market.
Similarly refreshing is an informative but concise description from the seller:
Up for bid is my 1990 BMW M3 E30. I’ve owned the car for approximately nine years and I’m only the second owner. I’ve enjoyed driving it from car show to car show as weather permitted during the summers. I have swapped out a couple items but I still have all the original equipment excluding the original wheels. The spare wheel and tire is original and has never been on the ground. I’ve added a front shock tower brace (Racing Dynamics bolt-in) I’ve changed the shifter knob and changed the headlights to european ellipsoid. The engine and suspension are in perfect running condition NEVER touched still in factory configuration! I have the original shift knob and headlights that will go with the car. The car spends it’s winter’s in heated storage.
Buy-it-Now is $21.5k, which seems fair considering the rare condition of this most desirable M car out there. All us E30 fanboys, this is the one we wish we could nab.
