About This 1990 BMW M3
Posted: 23 Nov 2013
Unmodified E30 M3 in a desirable color with only 113k miles. It's Alpine White (Alpine Weiss) with Natur interior. This was part of my private collection as the owner of Grassroots Motorsports and Classic Motorsports magazines. It's been garage-kept since I originally bought it 6 years ago, and I've never driven it on track or raced it. I bought it because it was original and unmolested. We fixed all its flaws when we bought it, and dyno-tuned it at Balanced Performance in Atlanta for a story in Grassroots Motorsports. It has original springs, shocks, anti-roll bars, wheels (including spare). The Yokohama S-Drive tires need to be replaced soon.
I bought it as a lightly damaged theft recovery with a salvage title and repaired all the small issues it had. It was also damaged on the rear quarter panel. There was no frame damage. This was going to be for my son as a high-school graduation present, but he decided he wanted a 4x4 truck instead.
This is a no-reserve auction because I'm confident in the quality of this car. The repairs were done by The Body Werks in Holly Hill, Florida, the shop that has done all the repairs for every car that has appeared in my magazines. It includes the factory tool kit, which is so original that the BMW-labeled rag is still in the tool kit. A similar car has sold recently at a Russo and Steele auction for more than $40,000. What's more: it's essentially the Shelby of the '80s, but still gets 28-30 miles per gallon on the highway.
The car does have a couple blemishes. There's a cigarette burn on the back seat. The upper seat bolsters on the front have been repaired in matching vinyl.
