1987 BMW E30 318i 2-door coupé (Automatic) For Sale

I'm gutted to be putting my pride and joy up for sale, but lack of usage and a change in circumstances means it's sadly time for the old girl and I to part ways.
I bought the car in April 2016 off an elderly gentleman who'd cared for it meticulously. I have continued to do just that.
It's a BMW E30 318i M10B18 2-door coupé with automatic gearbox, first registered on 28/08/1987 and has only covered 45,502 miles in that time. Mot'd until 14/09/2019.
This is probably one of the lowest mileage E30's in the world, the mileage is genuine and can be checked online via the car's MOT history.
It has had three owners from new including myself.
The car is in the much sought after Lachs silver, with pacific cloth interior which has no marks, tears, worn patches or cigarette burns, nothing! Apart from a tiny bit of sagging to the drivers seat base(barely noticeable) the interior looks like it just came off the factory line as you can see from the pictures.
The exterior of the car isn't too dissimilar although showing a few signs of wear commensurate with its 30+ year age, in the form of some stone chips which have been touched up and a scratch on the driver's door/ rear offside 1/4 panel which happened over 20 years ago and the car was poorly touched in then but I haven't wanted to risk having it repainted properly in case the colour doesn't match perfectly (the touch in colour matches it's just on a pretty touch in).
The original book pack is present along with it's contents (Owners Handbook, Service booklet (well stamped), BMW Service Europe Address booklet, Emergency Service booklet, even the original business cards of the salesman/service team who initially dealt with the car some 30+ year ago).
The car still has it's original running-in sticker in the windscreen and the original dealership sticker in the rear window, Harrington's BMW.
I changed the number plate when I got the car because they were all faded and cracked and stupidly didn't think to keep them should someone want to have the car as it was when it left the factory.
The previous owner did have a basic sound system fitted (CD, Radio, Bluetooth, AUX) but this could always be removed put back to its original state should you wish as I have the original blanking cap which stood where the head unit now sits.
The car runs perfectly and the gearbox is smooth, it really is an absolute pleasure to own and drive, and not why I bought it but I do get a lot of attention in it when she's just been washed and waxed!

As standard the car came with:
Lachs silver paint
Pacific cloth interior
Central locking
Electric exterior mirrors
Brown tinted glass
Optionally it was fitted with:
Power assisted steering
Wider tyres
Manual sliding sunroof

Please be mindful this nearly a 32 year old car, but probably one of the nicest, cleanest, original 32 year old cars that most of us ever have the fortune of seeing, let alone the honour of owning.
I've listed below the stamps in the service book, the gentleman who owned the car before sadly kept no paperwork or receipts.
Since owning the car I have serviced at a local BMW workshop, and a friend of mine who is a mechanic changed the belts on it as they looked cracked and I didn't like the look of them. Other than that it hasn't needed much attention as I rarely get the chance to use it, I did under 250 miles in it last year! Some people do that in one drive in their E30!
The car really is an absolute beauty, give me a call to arrange a viewing, she really must be seen to be appreciated fully.
