Overview: 2-owner, 146k mi., Alpine White over Anthracite/Black ‘carbon structure’ cloth sport interior, with exceedingly thorough cosmetic and mechanical upkeep, and a well documented enthusiast ownership history.

This is a completely rust free, California-garaged example that is described as a carefully built and beautifully preserved E30. It received a full trim-out respray circa 2010, and a forward-facing fascia respray in February 2022 — neither due to an accident. All trim was painted black during the 2010 respray, and factory ‘iS front and rear spoilers are equipped. All VIN tags are visible and present. The flawless interior features a completely crack-free dashboard, new heater core, heater valve, replaced odometer gears, an analog European-only clock, Kooglewerks cupholders, and surrounded with new premium audio speakers powered by a Nakamichi head unit. The retrofitted sport seats have the lift-forward lever deleted, new OE BMW seat foam and seat struts, and are newly wrapped in original Euro F8X M3/4 ‘carbon structure’ cloth on both the front and rear upholstery.
This is a comprehensively detailed E30 that solidifies their spot atop BMW’s desirability charts. It is turn-key, needing nothing for many miles to come — mechanically or cosmetically. We’re thrilled to facilitate the transfer of an important BMW chassis that arguably began their triumphant reemergence to the US market.
