Here at Old Colonel Cars we have this unrepeatable, very low mileage 1988 BMW E30 325i Manual, with an amazing 18, 000 miles from new. Owned by the first owner for 32 years, its hard to imaging there are many, lower mileage cars out there. This example is finished in Cirrus Blue with an Indigo Blue cloth interior. As you would expect from a car with this mileage, not only does it look stunning, the drives is amazing, such a tight and smooth ride.

This E30 has a lovely, simple specification, which is part of its charm. For example is features and electric sunroof, but has manual windows. It has PAS, Central locking, Pioneer Stereo, Rear spoiler, 15 inch BMW BBS alloys.

Bodywork / Interior / Wheels etc
Finished in Cirrus Blue. The paintwork has a lovely deep all over shine, look down the sides, across the bonnet, no noticeable dings or dents, a very good looking car. Look closer, all solid wheel arches etc. Look underneath, all solid sills, bottom of doors, jacking points etc.

Another point to note is the lovely fact is still has the original dealer ‘Tice & Son BMW’ plates fitted front and rear.

Inside, well its simply amazing. Take a look at the steering wheel, it still looks and feels brand new. This outstanding condition continues throughout, excellent cloth seats, excellent carpets, excellent dash with no cracks. Headlining all good, as are the door cards. Inside the boot its just as well kept, complete with unmarked toolkit of course.

The 15 inch BMW BBS alloys are all in lovely condition and are the perfect wheel for the E30.

Engine / Gearbox
This E30 features the superb 325i straight six engine, the same as in the 325i Sport and other BMW models from this period. With this mileage, its obviously sounds and drives very fresh, lovely and quiet, perfectly smooth. Its had a replacement stainless steel back box fitted. This is not to noisy, just gives the perfect engine note, slightly deeper than stock.

The 5 speed gearbox has a lovely tight feel, the clutch is nice and light. Its a delight to drive with the manual gearbox, most of these were autos.

The service history is excellent, from the original BMW Sales Invoice, all old MOT’s, Original Service book, all books, unmarked toolkit etc. The genuine 18, 000 miles is confirmed.

If you are looking for a superb low mileage e30, one that is so lovely to drive, this car must be seen.

There cant be many left the have such a genuine, low mileage.

One to tuck away in the week and bring out for the perfect weekend classic drive.
