I hope it's OK to post this on here. Amazing car. Personal friend that really does take care of this car with heart


1987 BMW 325is. Black on black. 5,160 miles. Quite possibly the lowest mileage E30 in the country; definitely one of the lowest worldwide. Never seen rain or snow. Always garaged. No food or drink ever consumed in this car. Been in the family since new, have all receipts.


Paint is all original and in absolutely amazing condition. Black enamel without clear. Near flawless. Inner fenderwell paint even presents as new. Most new cars donít look this good.
Original Mtech1 front spoiler is unblemished
Mtech1 side skirts
Kamei 3-piece rear valence
Car is presently on a set of old 15x7 Style 10s that came with my 1989 325is for storing purposes. A set of four brand new, never mounted BBS RS003s and new unmounted 205/50-16 Bridgestone tires are available to really complete the car. These wheels may possibly be the only new set of RS003s in the world, and are near priceless.


Presents as new. Smells new. Feels new. Aside from an Mtechnic shift knob application (motorsport stripes), and the floor mats for the floor mats, the interior is stock.


Stock with the exception of Alpina progressive rate springs

Engine, Exhaust, Drivetrain, Stereo, Lighting

Stock, with the exception of chrome BMW exhaust tips


Recent Braille battery, dry cell to eliminate any chance of corrosive weeping/leaking

Available Accessories (all parts are new, never installed)

Z3 M Coupe rear differential cover (with all new hardware)
Mtech2 steering wheel (black leather, smaller 370 mm diameter)
Mtechnic door sill plates
E30 M3 Evo hood seals

It starts every time, and runs great. Aside from the A/C needing to be recharged, everything works. It handles well, but the ride is remarkably comfortable. An exceptional car for summer evening drives.

Honestly, I never thought Iíd even consider selling this car. Itís one of the nicest looking cars Iíve ever seen, and has a lot of sentimental value. However, itís been hard avoiding the temptation to ďimproveĒ it, a path I want to avoid. The car is simply too nice to be subjected to that kind of degradation. The ideal owner would appreciate it for what it is; a time capsule survivor from a time when BMW styling was at its best.

Car is priced at $29.5k with the extras (RS003s, tires, steering wheel, etc.) or $27k without. Iím really in no real rush to sell, but the reality is that I simply do not have the time to properly enjoy it. Too many other priorities / cars and a 1M on the way.

There's just something about an e30....

E30 is my favorite BMW of all time!

I don't know how I could contain myself if I bought it; how do you only put 5k miles on in 24-25 years?? I'd have a hard time driving it less than 10k/yr, even with two cars. lol
Definitely is a neat collector car though; looks like it's got all the options. I can't imagine how much those BBS' are worth!

$29.5k though; wow. I wonder how he came up with its value? If I had a car like that, I wouldn't even know where to start valuing it; it's not like 5k E30's are a dime a dozen to get a fair market value estimate... wow.

Bumping up a beautiful car...

Status on this one?

I've walked more than 5k miles since '87...

Pure deliciousness. I'd give up plastic for diving boards to own a gem like that.
