1988 BMW (E30) M3


  • A wonderfully original example of the iconic E30-generation M3, presented in fantastic condition.
  • Under the bonnet is the renowned 2.3-litre ‘S14’ inline-four, which drives the rear wheels via an engaging five-speed manual transmission.
  • Offered for sale with very low mileage from new, and with its original documentation and stamped service record.


  • Finished in Diamantschwarz (Diamond Black) Metallic with a black and houndstooth cloth interior, this M3 is equipped with electric windows and rides on the correct set of 15-inch alloy wheels, which are unmarked.
  • The car is fully original and unmodified throughout, save for its replacement Kenwood radio/cassette player.
  • This handsome modern classic will be accompanied by all of its original handbooks and owner’s manuals, as well as its stamped service book.


  • The bodywork is reported to be free of any damage or corrosion.
  • Believed to be entirely original, the paintwork is in fantastic condition, as shown in the photo gallery below.
  • Moving inside, the cabin is unmarked, with only the slightest wear to the black leather-wrapped gear knob, in line with the car’s low mileage.
  • There are no known mechanical or electrical faults.
  • During the seller’s ownership the car has been fully inspected and maintained by their personal mechanic, who is responsible for their fleet of classic vehicles.


This E30-generation BMW M3 is a superb example of the modern classic performance car, finished in a timeless factory colour scheme and with very low mileage from new. Original and unmolested, it is undoubtedly a collector-quality example, and would also be a joy to drive on the next owner’s favourite roads to experience why this is such a coveted BMW.
