1989 BMW E30 325i Sport Auto M Tech 2
It’s hard to squeeze into one advert all the details of maintenance and the superlatives required to describe the condition of this E30, but we’ll start by saying that this Brilliantrot example truly wants for nothing. The car was supplied new by Williams Motors, Manchester on 20thOctober 1989, has had 6 previous owners and covered only 92,086 miles from new.
A genuine 325i Sport, boasting sensational driving characteristics, these models are increasingly popular choices for collectors. What’s more this car is fitted with a genuine original option M-Technic 2 body kit. Originally introduced as a factory option in 1988, and as outlined in the original sales material for the kit included in the car’s files, the M-Technic ground effect kit ‘reduced drag co-efficient, improved road handling and greater stability at speed’. The kit comprised revised front and rear aprons, side skirts and boot spoiler and has become a highly sought after, and often cheaply replicated, specification for the E30.
Poring through the two humongous history files shows stacks upon stacks of invoices from BMW main dealers and top-tier specialists, immediately highlighting the meticulous manner in which this car has been cared for. Invoices from the sourcing of an original glove box mounted torch, a genuine hose clamp from BMW Cotswold Cheltenham, factory boot badges, a single OEM hubcap – not a single stone was left unturned in the quest to keep this car immaculate and original. The masses of invoices are punctuated by the routine servicing, key component replacement and specialist care that separates a good car from a superb car. The car needed two service books due to the amount of service stamps received, with documentation for five cambelt changes and concours scoring cards within the mass of invoices.
Needless to say the car presents in exceptional condition today. Panel gaps are perfect, the paint shows a deep shine, the previously fully re-trimmed interior is immaculate, and despite the exceptional talents of our photographer Tim Scott we fear no photo will ever quite do this car justice. The car has also just received extensive detailing by Ceramic Pro. As much as the term has become a cliché in the car world, this really is an unrepeatable example of an M Tech E30 and one we take incredible pride in selling.
