This beautiful example has lived a coveted life in the hands of 2 careful owners both of which only using the car in dry summer weather and always keeping it garaged. The condition of the exterior is truly exceptional, the only evidence of use being a few carefully touched-in stone chips to the front end.
The current owner had known of the car for many years before pursuing the opportunity of purchasing it 13 years ago. He owns many other fine classics and knows how to maintain the body to the highest standards. On this example he had both bumpers, all inner arches and the scuttle panel vents removed so the body could be 100% inspected, cleaned and then waxed.
The underside of the car is perfect, no road grime has been allowed to build up and every nut bolt and ancillary is clean and free from any surface corrosion.
The current owner does not usually show his cars however on arrival at the BMW festival at Gaydon, he was asked to enter the car into the concours event. The car cleaned up, winning 5 trophies. It was also the year celebrating the 25th anniversary of the M3 and the car is included in the ‘M' photograph with 68 other E30 M3's.
Opening the door you are greeted with that new car smell of fresh leather and plastics, as if viewing one at a BMW dealer back in the early 90's. The leather is heated and remains in stunning condition, there is no wear to any of the bolsters and the leather still remains textured and soft. All of the interior plastics still look and feel new and are completely free from any marks or signs of wear. The car is fitted with a European spec steering wheel and the original US spec wheel is included.
The boot area is spotless, lift the carpet and the wheel housing is immaculate with the original spare, first aid kit and warning triangle all present and unused.
Being a US spec car it is fitted with some rare options that include air conditioning, heated seats and cruise control. The car currently has a Sony CD player fitted and the original is supplied in the boot and is in fine working order.
Under the bonnet shows a perfectly maintained and detailed engine compartment, every nut and bolt is immaculate. Don't confuse this with a car that has been prepped, detailed and polished, the reason for this remarkable condition is due to the careful dry weather use and 1st class maintenance. The car has been serviced and checked on a regular basis despite the modest mileage.
The car has recently undergone a full inspection and has had all of its fluids replaced.
Being a late spec car, it is fitted with the 16" alloy wheels which really fill the box arches nicely. They are still shod in the original Pirelli P700 tyres that have never been removed from the rims. The wheels are immaculate and free from any curb marks. The brakes are in fine working order and looking through the spokes of the wheels you notice the calipers still retain their original paint finish and look like new, the front discs and pads were replaced 6,000 miles ago.
The car is a North American production E30 M3 and was first built in 1989. It was sold through BMW Manhattan to the first owner, an Irish chap living and working in Saudi, he kept the car in Saudi for the first 2 years before having it shipped back to his home in Ireland in 1992.
The current owner had tried on several occasions to buy the car and then in 2001 he had the long awaited call and a deal was struck. Since being in his ownership it has been serviced and checked on a regular basis, all these services are stamped in the book and there is a huge history file full of invoices, detailing work that has been carried out over the years.
The car comes with both keys, a top quality tailoured cover, the original US spec steering wheel and the original BMW radio cassette player.
