1987 BMW M3

This listing is for a European specification 1987 E30 BMW M3 with 53K original miles. VIN numberWBSAK10300843275.This M3 is one of three E30 M3's that I own and have made the difficult decision to part with. Collector grade original car that is in exceptional condition. I purchased this car last year from the second owner in Japan and had it imported to the US. European specification car built on November 20, 1986. Currently shows 86,870 km (53,978 miles). Diamond Shwartz Metallic (BMW Paint code 181) over Antracite (0211) cloth interior. Car is in original form with the only exception being an aftermarket stereo head unit, although the original radio is included in the sale. Has all the Euro market options including fully working smiley headlights, fender markers, cloth interior, and the Getrag 265/5 Dogleg 5 speed manual transmission. Interior is in exceptional condition with a crack free dash and all original upholstery and carpets that are in stunning condition. This M3 was in excellent condition when I purchased it and came with 19 years of service and maintenance records dating back to 8/11/2000. I purchased the car from the believed second owner who had purchased it from the original owner in 2000. Car has been legally and correctly imported to the US and has a clear Utah title. Since my purchase of the car I have had the following work performed. Complete glass out, strip down and full repaint done by Triple R Restoration in Pleasant Grove, UT at a cost of $6,992.76. Car is completely rust free and showed no sings of any accident damage. All body panels appeared to be original. Paint and body are flawless. When we put the car back together I had a brand new BMW windshield and trim installed as well as the original had a chip right in the drivers line of sight. Brand new Nitto 205/55 R15 tires on the original 15 inch basket weave wheels. Original full size matching spare and tire, jack and tools. Undercarriageis as clean as you will ever see. No rust or corrosion anywhere and everything is stunningly clean and original. As with all my BMW's I had the entire car thoroughly gone through by the E30 experts at A Auto repair in Orem, UT upon my purchase. The following work was performed.
Complete tear down and reassembly of the engine to inspect and repair all oil leaks.

This M3 is an exceptional car as can be detailed in the 250+ photos. Every thing works perfectly on the car and it drives like new. It as as tight and responsive as any E30I'veever drove. I picked the car up in Los Angeles and drove it home 600 miles to Utah. The car ran absolutely perfect and it was an awesome drive! I went through this car with the intention of making it perfect and keeping it for many years, however I am downsizing and simplifying and this one needs to go. I have 11 cars in my collection including 2 additional E30 M3's. The other two I have had for over 10 years and I am the least emotionally attached to this one which is the reason I am parting with it. If you are looking for a very rare, Euro spec E30 M3 then this car is as nice an example you will ever find. Comes with over 80 service records from the gentleman I purchased the car from that are in Japanese. I have had all the records professionally translated into English in digital format and will be happy to email them upon request. All documents and paperwork will be included in the sale for the next owner. This is a rare chance to own an exceptional, low mileage, well documented E30 M3. No expense was spared on my part when going through this car and it was already a fine example when I purchased it. I hope the next owner will enjoy it as much as I have.Also have the hood insulation, it was not on the car when photos were taken.Please feel free to call me to discuss the car and I am happy to answer any and all questions.I am an auto dealer in Provo, UT,however this car is being sold by me personally and there are no additional fees. I am also happy to assist the buyer with transport as well at buyers expense. Thanks! Stayton Tyacke 801-361-6512.
