Now available for auction is this 1991 BMW E30 325i Convertible. This E30 is said to have been inherited by the seller from a family member who kept the vehicle in excellent running order with proper maintenance including an engine refresh in 2018 at 146k miles. Featuring a naturally aspirated straight-six engine paired with an automatic transmission, this increasingly desirable BMW E30 is now being offered by its seller out of Ohio, with approximately 155k miles showing on the odometer.
This BMW was reportedly refinished in a custom color under previous ownership and a corresponding invoice will be included. The exterior is said to be in excellent condition and a new cabriolet top will be included in the sale. The second series E30 debuted external styling updates including redesigned taillights, a revised front bumper, and deletion of chrome trim. Some custom exterior trim pieces have been added and this 325i rides on new 16" multi-piece wheels dressed in new tires. The factory 14" BMW basketweave wheels are also included in the sale.
Within the past 5 years, a previous owner is said to have added new custom two-tone black and grey leather upholstery. An alternative BMW steering wheel has been installed along with an aftermarket stereo, amplifier, and dual subwoofers in the trunk. The seller reports a buzzing sound from the right turn signal, the convertible top motor is nonfunctional, and a check brake pad light is currently on, although the braking system is said to be working properly. The original steering wheel will also be included in the sale.
This E30 is equipped with a naturally aspirated M20 2.5 L straight-six engine. Approximately 168 HP and 164 lb.-ft of torque are sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed ZF automatic transmission. An invoice from Bergman Autowerks shows a significant refresh of the engine in March of 2018 at 146,962 miles. A collection of service records will be included in the sale.
This sale will include a set of 2 keys, service records, factory 14" wheels, the original steering wheel, a new cabriolet top, and a clean title.
