We’ve been talking behind the scenes here at GFCSB about the value of E30 M3s. One indication of a valuable vehicle is when folks start making clones of that model. What we have here is an extensive restoration and high end clone job. The folks that went to all the work on this BMW clearly understand that there is potential to get some of that investment back in the E30 Mr market.
The project started as a stripped rolling chassis and they went from there. As the owner states, this isn’t one for the purists or concours divas.
It is a US spec, 1987 E30 325iS fully converted to E30 M3 body using all original metal OEM E30 M3 body parts, E36 M3 5 lug suspension, Porsche Brembo brakes, custom interior. Top quality work, all body/paint/engine/suspension/brakes are in excellent condition, everything is like new, everything work, there is no rust, no damage, no scratches, no blemishes, no leaks, no problems !!
M20 motor was rebuilt using 2.7L block and 2.5L iS head, new gaskets, hoses, new timing belt, water pump, full tune-up (filters, plugs, etc..) DINAN chip. This motor pulls really hard, the car is very very quick with a nice power torque curve, it has a lot of power in low and high RPMs with nice mid range ooohmpp. There are no hick-ups, no dead zone in low RPMs (like the s14 motor), this car is fully capable of being a daily driver as well as canyon rocket, it can handle any kind of task you throw at it, this motor is surprisingly capable and is really fun. Motor has about 81k miles on it, no leaks, doesn’t burn any oil, no problems !

This is a top notch conversion job that is going to bring good money. The 81,000 miles on the car doesn’t mean much when it has been gone through so carefully. Bidding is up near $15,000 with the reserve not met. You could find a genuine E30 M3 for less than what you will pay here, but it won’t be nearly as nice or as sorted.
