BMW E30 M3 Convertible


      ermed hair, shoulder pads, rolled up jacket sleeves and sweaters draped over your shoulders all point squarely to one unforgettable decade - the 1980's. A moment in time so vilified from the moment Big Ben ushered in the 1990's, is now looked back on as a time which was fun, experimental and actually pretty cool. Who would have thought that nearly 30 years later, Rick Astley would be the darling of the current University crowd? Not even Rick's mum would have put money on that. His number one smash hit, "Never Gonna Give You Up" was certainly a dance floor anthem and struck a chord in more ways than one. It was absolutely true for a whole generation of petrolheads who literally couldn't get enough of the motoring star of the eighties, the BMW E30 3 series.



The motorsport inspired E30 M3 in convertible form represented the ultimate in late 80's flamboyance.


With only 786 M3 convertibles produced, this is the one that ticks all the boxes for the collector wanting the best. One of only 476 of the more powerful 215 bhp cars in the perfect colour combination, 21,000 miles from new, full service history, only three owners,  hardtop and in as new condition inside, outside and underneath.  This is the most original and untouched E30 M3 Convertible we have seen in a very, very long time. 


Please ask for underside pictures. It is truly amazing. The underside of the car is spotless, untouched and original. Every single brake pipe, fuel pipe, cadmium plated clip, nut, bolt, washer and suspension component are in the same condition as the day she left the production line.


The original BMW transit wax applied to the underside of the car is still present.  It was hard to know how best to approach the engine bay of this time warp. We decided to leave well alone at this point due to the engine, inlet manifold and inner front wings also still being coated in original twenty five year old transit wax.  It would appear the car has never seen the rain and it seems a shame to remove this after all these years.  The BMW stamped lead seal is still present around the differential speed speedo sensor.  Incredible!
