E30 BMW 325I cab motorsport edition 1 0f 250 For Sale (1988)Reluctantly selling my 1988 BMW e30 Convertible.
This is a revered and rare Motorsport Edition of which a total of 250 were built.
However only 40 of the first series of Motorsport Editions were built, this being one of them.
Most of these cars tend to be Auto, however mine is a rare manual transmission car.
Please note that a number of people have their 'M-tech' kitted cars for sale as Motorsport Editions...However some of these cars are not the real thing-This one is!
Built as an alternative to the 'then new' E30 M3 Convertible that was only available in left hand drive.
The E30 BMW's are fast becoming a classic, they are certainly 80's Retro, and the convertible has always been desirable.
Add to this, the sought after Motorsport Edition and manual transmission, and I believe this car represents a great piece of BMW heritage.
Macau blue is a fantastic colour, looking like a metallic black in low light, but becoming a vibrant dark purple in bright natural light, it was only available at the time as a special colour on the e28 M5 and the E30 M3 special editions and later on the e24 635csi Motorsport editions.
The leather is Silver grey (Mid grey) and on the Motorsport Editions extends not only to the seat covers, but the entire door cars and door pulls, rear quarter panels, and centre consoles (even the ashtray lids are leather trimmed)!
M-Technic suspension, limited Slip differential, shadow-line trim, M-technic steering wheel and gear stick etc, were all part of the Motorport Edition package.
The later cars (1990-) were all fitted with the 'M-technic II' bodykit, but this car has the period 'M-Technic I' bodykit. It has a slightly reduced ride height and aftermarket alloy wheels (not added my myself, but could easily be changed to a set of original 15" BBS wheels)
Other equipment includes electric windows and mirrors, BMW sport seats, power steering etc. (Note, that these early Motorsport Editions were fitted with the manual roof as opposed to the later and frequently troublesome Hyrdo operated roofs)
full service history and lots of receipts to prove mileage, mileage is currently at 119k but will go up as it is in daily use. Please contact me for further information.
