1990 BMW E30 318is Baur Alpine White For Sale
I am selling after 10 years of ownership my rare 318is Baur, it’s always been stored in my garage and pampered. This is one of a handful of 318is converted by Baur. Being a 318is known as the baby E30 M3 it was the most modern engine available in the E30 range, which incorporated DOHC, the updated Bosch Motronic 1.3, hydraulic valve adjusters, and coil-on-plug ignition. The ‘is’ (Injection Sport) also boasted firmer M-Technic suspension that meant stiffer springs, firmer Boge shocks, and anti-roll bars measuring 20mm at the front and 12mm at the rear. A sportier aesthetics was achieved with the addition of a front air dam and rear boot lip, limited-slip diff, front fog lamps, anti-theft equipment, 15-inch BBS cross spoke alloy wheels option code 288, Green tinted glass option 428. BMW Sport seats option 481 with Indigo cloth trim option 0318. I have lots of history since my ownership including the factory build sheet. I have a list of all the previous owners names and address from DVLA. I don’t have the original service book unfortunately. This car was built June 1990 and registered on the 8th August 1990 by Stratstone's. It’s recently been detailed by Boss detailing in Bolton and is in amazing original condition for its year. It's not concourse but with some paint work would bring it up to the next stage. Interior and roof is in very good condition as you can see in the photos. New MOT'd to February 2021 (13months). The 318 plate is included in the sale, it was first registered from new on H830SYG. The history on Baur Option: Baur is a Karosserie or coachbuilder in Stuttgart, Germany, which has been building BMW convertibles since the 1930s. They enjoy an excellent reputation for quality and do prototype work for many manufacturers such as Porsche, Audi and Ford. The Baur family received a patent for the design of a folding top for luxury automobiles around the time BMW was building the first car with the BMW name. In 1971 they began productionof the safer "Targa-style" body with the 2002. (Targa was a registered Porsche name, so they had to call it something else.) Originally an aftermarket option available through BMW dealers, the E21 3 Series TC1 was built with full factory authorization, and covered under the factory warranty. The roll-bar version or "Top Cabrio" (TC) continued with the E30 TC2 even after Baur developed the BMW E30 Convertible design for BMW, and which BMW built. These TC cars can be built at any time, on an aftermarket basis, the owner supplies the car to be converted, a costly bespoke option. Please contact me for more information or more detailed photos. No PX’s or silly offers please it’s priced to sell, first to view will buy.
