We are pleased to offer this 1988 BMW E30 M3 finished in Salmon Silver Metallic over Grey leather. Reported to have been meticulously looked after from new with service records dating back to 1999, this highly collectible M3 has undergone significant maintenance including the refurbishment of the leather interior, a full engine rebuild, and a recent glass-out professional respray in its factory specified color. One of the most iconic sports cars of the 1980’s, this E30 is now being offered by its seller in Wisconsin while showing approximately 208k miles on the odometer, of which 58k are said to have been driven since the engine rebuild.
In July of 2020, this M3 underwent a professional glass-out respray in its factory specified color of Lachssilber Metallic (Salmon Silver Metallic). Carfax shows damage, however, the seller indicates this to have been falsely reported during the respray. The exterior finish is said to remain like-new as can be seen in the provided images. Distinctive features include prominent fender flares, large front and rear valences, and side skirts. Factory 15” basketweave wheels are retained with healthy Michelin tires currently installed.
The Black and Grey leather interior was completely refurbished in 2014 by Creative Options LLC in Rex, Georgia. The seats have been reupholstered and a vintage aftermarket radio is installed. The cabin is said to be in very good condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional including the air conditioning, power windows, and sunroof.
Power comes from a 2.3 L DOHC S14 inline 4-cylinder engine. Approximately 192 HP is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission with limited-slip differential. The engine is said to have been completely rebuilt in 1999 by Bullet Performance Engineering in California with just over 58k miles driven since. A large 3-ring binder is included citing a thorough history of service and the seller indicates this M3 to be in fantastic driving condition.
This sale will include 1 master key, original books and tools, and a clean title. If you have always wanted a vintage BMW M3, this incredibly well maintained E30 is not to be overlooked.
