For that sort of money, you'd hope they will find the missing headlight wipers

Seriously good bearding if you picked that up from the dual washer bottle! Did you notice the mono wiper conversion though?

@leichtbau looks very nice nonetheless (speaking as someone who doesn't like red cars). that dealer has great stock, all seems to sell too.

I was more alluding to the fact it was up for some time well below $90K ($70K rings a bell?) on 15" weaves.

I didn't notice no, was busy fixated on the headlight ones...

Really, how long ago was that? I can’t remember seeing this car before, and I haven’t seen any E30 M3s under $80k for a long time.

The black modified one “88 M3” is being flipped as well, change of front seats and the asking price is +$10k.

I thought this was the same Henna / Houndstooth for sale early 2020, but it's not. You're right, this one hasn't been for sale before, it's been stored for a while courtesy of the New Zealand Government...

Immaculate but a seat cover on the drivers seat because its probably ripped, original shift knob missing. I mean it looks relatively tidy but come on...

Yeah looks like its had little use over the past decade and been stored with some sort of care. Even with the supposed full service history its likely just another overpriced E30 running on 20 year old parts and flaws when you go looking.

I'd be interested in an E30 M10 manual, but that's just being a bit silly with the price.

And I'd prefer if it didn't have a sunroof.

Not sure that one’s “back” for sale, I think it hasn’t been on the market for some time. I can’t remember seeing a red one in such good Nick with a dog leg for a number of years.

Its not the red impounded one, and it’s not the one you mentioned on the 15” weaves.

I’ve an inking I know of the owner of this one. Very nice example and worth the asking if it’s still in the same condition, if it’s the one I’m thinking of.

I hate that Bronzit E30.  It is everything I don't want an E30 to be.

M10 - Check
4 Speed - Check
Bronzit - Check
Brown Interior - Check
4 Door - Check
Hub Caps - Check
Keep-Fit Windows - Check
Sunroof - Check
Ripped Drivers Seat - Check

Yeah the 325i at $28k has been on there a few times, seems very optimistic. Looks nice, but not 28k nice. As for the 99kms i’d Want a fully documented service history to back that up, as we all know how good the odometers are in E30s and how easy they are to swap.

I saw a M325i Tech II in white from Dunedin, 300kms but awesome condition pop up for $32,500 which is not much above asking for the 4-door. I know which one I think is worth the asking price..

This one is a Baur. Less expensive ownership proposition to a BMW vert as it uses coupe parts, and not the vert-only parts. The vert was only just becoming available in 1985.

Out of interest how many E30 Baur were built? How hard / expensive is it to get the Baur specific bits for the roof etc?

The white M325i Tech II started at $32500 correct, with a buy now of $36000. Which was quickly pressed and the car on the way to a new home by 12.38pm, just four hours after listing.

We've not found anything we can't get from sources in Germany and SA.

Just need to join the relevant Baur groups. They seem to arrange remanufacture faster than most.

Thought it had gone pretty quickly as I couldnt find it again. Looked pretty good from the photos.

Hi all

I was wondering how much my e30 is worth aprox. 
It’s a 1990 325i SA 4 door sunroof model. 

Has full leather interior,Manual,284Cams,240mm e34 M5 clutch, e46 purple tag steering rack. It is certed for coilovers but I’m considering putting the stock suspension back. Was resprayed a few years ago too.
 

These are all I things I can think of off the top of my head. 

Any help would be appreciated

What's it like condition wise? What would you rate the interior and the exterior out of 10 (10 being factory mint)? LSD? The e30 market is so hard to judge right now. There's ridiculous prices on TM/FB but who knows what they actually sell for.
