The M-Technic Luxury Equipment option (S771A) was made available for the BMW E30 Convertible for the 1991 model year only, equipping a full M-Technic II body kit, an M-Technic suspension, additional leather upholstery, and 15” BBS wheels. This 1991 example is finished in Diamond Black Metallic over a Black Nappa leather interior and is said to be one of 250 worldwide produced in this color combination.
