1990 BMW M3THE M3!! Recently acquired by the Pfaff Auto Group Collection is this mint 1990 BMW (E30) M3. Born from Motorsports for Motorsports the E30 M3 is considered by many to be the most successful sedan in motorsports history. Being the third M car to come from Munich it was also the most changed and homologated BMW ever released. To ensure entry into the various series the car raced in BMW had to bring to market a near version of the sports coupe to the road. Based off the E30 3 series introduced in 1982 the M3 went through extensive modifications. Starting with the exterior the front and rear fenders were flared out immensely to increase the track, he front bumper cover took on a deep air damn, lush fog lights and lower chin spoiler to increase downforce, he bigger 15” wheels were housed by larger Pirelli Tires and the rear window was installed with a reduced rake which led to the higher trunk lid and large rear spoiler. The look was unbelievable and took the automotive world by storm. Moving to the chassis the M3 was fitted with a revised suspension as well. The stiffer springs and heavy duty shocks reduced the ride height while increasing the cornering ability, nbsp;to reduce the body roll the bigger sway bars were installed to keep the M3’s weight in check. Larger brakes also made their way on to the track inspired road car completing this beautiful package. Lastly the powertrain received the type of changes we all dream of. The S14 2.3L 4 cylinder engine was a derivative of the same engine that powered Nelson Piquet to the 1983 Formula 1 Championship in the Brabham BMW! Designed by resident BMW engine guru Paul Rosche in road car configuration of the S14 featured 4 valves per cylinder driven by dual overhead cams, ndividual throttle bodies and produced a healthy 195hp with 170 ft. lbs of torque. It was mated to BMW’s signature 5 speed transmission and transferred to the rear wheels through a 4.10 Limited Slip Differential. This recipe results in one of the most iconic road cars in motoring history and widely regarded as one of the best drivers cars the world has ever seen!
The example we have here is a Toronto native and lived its entire life in southern Ontario. Bought new from Beach Auto in downtown Toronto’s east end it was put on the road on November 27th, 989. Finished in what is believed to be the best colour combination of Brilliant Red on a Black leather interior. Options include Sunroof, nboard computer, spoke steering wheel and dealer installed car phone. The car was acquired with its second set of tires being the classic P700Z tyres showing the true patina of this remarkable example. The condition of the car is close to perfect with zero modifications other than the new Bilstein shocks and H&R springs installed by us. The stock Springs accompany the car. Recent Service includes oil change, park plugs replacement, AF sensor, uel pumps and new brakes. The car comes with both keys, ll books, ool took kit, pare tire and jack and radio code card. The interior shows a car well cared for showing minimal wear and no damage, xterior of the car shows the same with some panels refinished, owever the majority is untouched. The 15” BBS wheels are showing perfect with no curbing or oxidization, he lights and lenses also show perfect and obvious to a car that has covered just 74,000km(45,700 miles). Black trim and pieces on the exterior show perfect with proper gaps on all panels. This vehicle also presents a clean Carproof and Carfax with no stories. This car is certainly one of the cleanest examples available in North America and with the rising values of extreme mileage cars this low mileage beauty is the collectors dream!!
