Based on the E30 M3 Coupe, the Convertible version of the M3 was introduced in 1988 and was only available to the European market. Hand-assembled at BMW’s Motorsport facility in Garching, Germany, this 1991 M3 Convertible is finished in Diamond Black Metallic over a silver leather interior. It was first ordered by Klaus Dombrowski of Huttlingen, Germany, and subsequently spent time unregistered in a U.K. collection before being purchased by its current owner on its original German title. One of approximately 785 European-spec M3 Convertibles produced, this rare BMW is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Oklahoma while showing just 713 miles on the odometer.

This M3 is finished in Diamond Black Metallic with a black convertible soft top and shares bodywork from the M3 Couple including boxed fender flares, revised bumpers, and side skirts. Differing from the M3 Coupe, it features a standard trunk lid without a spoiler. Other exterior details include headlight wipers, fog lights, painted mirror caps, and a dual exhaust outlet. It rides on silver-finished 16″ basketweave wheels with BMW center caps that are dressed in Pirelli P700 tires from 2001. The seller notes a few minor blemishes on the hood that have been touched up. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin is upholstered in silver leather and sports M tri-color accents on each of the four seats, which include heating and manual adjustability in the front. Interior details include a four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, an onboard computer, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, and a BMW Bavaria C Business cassette stereo. The car is not optioned with air conditioning or cruise control. The seller reports the mileage shown on the odometer is accurate. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are said to be working properly.

This M3 is powered by a 2.3-liter S14 inline-four-cylinder engine that was factory-rated at 215 HP and 230 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Getrag 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. To accommodate the increased curb weight, the M3 Convertible came equipped with different shocks and springs compared to the M3 Coupe. The gas tank is said to have been recently replaced along with the battery and fuel injector cleaning.

This sale will include a clean title, tool kit, spare tire, and car cover.

The seller would like you to know: “This car is a true time capsule and I would guess that it's the lowest mileage M3 convertible in the world.”

  • MathiasMeuse (registered bidder) 9 months, 3 weeksago

    I’m in Europe and know these cars well. When produced there were a combination of standard E30 and M3 parts used. Because of this unusual combination of parts, many of these cars are near one-off builds. They were also hand painted and the measurements varied from 50-200 micron or so. The production numbers make it a rare car. The km and condition make it a true collector’s piece. Good luck to bidders and seller in the final day. I think the world is watching this one. I'm quite sure if this one would be sold in Europe it'd easily do 200k or more in euros.

  • Toucan (seller) 9 months, 3 weeksago

    Down to the final 24 hours, guys. I appreciate all the feedback and comments on this special car. I will be available for the coming day to answer any questions, please post online or hit the Contact Seller button.

  • LJames 9 months, 4 weeksago

    @BMWFAM, if you do a search on BAT you will find what this car in the auction history. For those looking, this a wonderful example... It has some truly interesting options such as the air bag which was not standard in Europe. The gray dashboard is something you will not find on most other E30s. I'm looking forward to seeing what this will sell for. I know there is no way you could reproduce this E30 M3 Convertible for what it was sold/purchased for. Best of luck to the buyer and seller on this one!!

    Thanks for the bids and comments, guys. Yes, @MathiasMeuse, it is a special car. I hope that it finds a great home with someone who will appreciate it. And I agree that you will not find another even close! Please remember that any in-person inspection would need to be done by end of the day tomorrow (Wednesday). Good luck to everyone!

  • MathiasMeuse (registered bidder) 10 monthsago

    I have looked all over Europe and you will never find another w this kind of miles. In Europe a nice example with 100,000 km will generally cost 120k euro or more and most of them are in very poor used condition.

    Hi, @BMWFam. My apologies but Pcarmarket does not want us to disclose any reserves.

    Hi, I noticed that there is a reserve. Would you please share what it is. Thank you.

  • Toucan (seller) 10 monthsago

    Sorry, typo! I believe they were all without AC.

    Hi, guys. Here’s a little further info. First, I’m posting the German and UK inspections on the car showing the mileage, along with the original title from the original owner! Second, the car is already registered and titled in the USA with a clean MT title. And yes, there are floor mats in the car. AC could certainly be added. I’m no expert but I believe none of these were optioned with AC.

  • cdmcollector 10 monthsago

    Bid in the amount of $5,500

  • Steveduva 10 monthsago

    Also does it come with a set of floor mats? Thanks

  • Steveduva 10 monthsago

    Any issues getting it registered in the us ? And do you think a c could be added ?

  • Toucan (seller) 10 monthsago

    &CABRIOLET-INT - thank you. I suppose a Sport Evo with similar mileage would be similar. It’s certainly one of a kind. Please feel free to bid!😁 Inspections are welcome if anyone would like to see her in person.

  • CABRIOLET-INT (registered bidder) 10 monthsago

    @Toucan this is the Holly Grail of e30 M3's. Thanks!

  • Toucan (seller) 10 monthsago

    @CABRIOLET-INT - love the handle! Pcarmarket is incorrect. This car has only 1150km (713 miles) on it, documented by a German TUV and a UK MOT. I will try to upload those shortly.

  • CABRIOLET-INT (registered bidder) 10 monthsago

    The PCAR ad states 27,867 miles. The seller states 713 original miles? Is there any documentation for actual mileage? Either way love this M3 Cabriolet.

    Hi, everyone, and welcome to our auction. What we have here is essentially a brand new 1991 M3 Convertible. Super rare and the car looks nearly new in every respect. It was just serviced by a BMW specialist shop with a new battery fitted, the fuel injectors removed, inspected and cleaned, and a new gas tank installed as the original one had fuel sitting for too long. The original gas tank comes with the car. Note that this car only has 713 ORIGINAL/ACTUAL MILES! Bid with confidence and feel free to ask any questions here or directly via the Contact Seller button. Of course the car is available for in-person inspection during the auction, just reach out. Good luck to all bidders. No disappointments here!
