Now the E30 series of BWM has achieved classic status, original and solid exemplars are searched after, and this fact pushes up the value development. Particularly the rarer exemplars such as the Coupe and Convertible, with corresponding low mileages have proven to be collectible. The popularity of the model can be related to BMW's famous build-quality and the truly pure BMW driving characteristics of the time. No computers, electronic limiter, or a design more accommodating hit pedestrians then the petrolhead's eye. Averagely they were sold as daily run-arounds, a low mileage and un-fettled with original car therefore proves to be trickier to find than an exotic sports car. Moreover, a relatively small number of 318i convertibles were constructed (24.706) of which not many have survived the tick of time. Especially not with an original and undamaged interior, delivered exactly the same as in the famous M3. In the rather well-known chequered pattern with no traces of usage, this indicates the minor and careful usage of the car. Here offered exemplar is a beautifully original car with an equally original interior. The car drives as new and is ready for many years of fun motoring to come.
This 320i convertible offers four electric powered windows, power steering, central locking, nice multi adjustable sports seats and an original BMW radio.
The body is wholly original, rust-and damage-free. In stunning Delphin Metallic, combined with a black convertible roof. All panels fit perfectly with all opening parts softly closing. The chrome bumpers as fitted to the first series, are executed in the exterior colour and undamaged they are fitted perfectly straight to the car. A beautiful tranquil and original ensemble as BMW pictured her in the brochure.
The interior is worthy of a special mention. Wholly original and undamaged. Even the bolsters of the perfect sports seats show no wear and tear. On behalf of the limited usage of the car, the support the seats offer remains as new. The carpeting us undamaged and nicely clean. All levers, switches and gauges are nicely clean and function accordingly. This 320i has never been smoked in.
The 129bhp strong six-cylinder inline engine runs silky smooth and is spotlessly clean. No traces of oil, strange noises or heavily smoking exhaust. Evidently well cared for, all is original. In the boot all is nicely clean and undamaged. Under the load bay houses a full-size spare wheel. In the bootlid one can find the complete toolkit, original and never been used. The wheels are free from any damages and are wrapped in excellent Vredestein tires.
Sold new in 1990 by an Italian BMW dealer. We acquired her from the second owner. The car was always stored in the garage and only used on special sunny occasions. A nice, rust free E30 convertible with an attractive mileage is a rarity that will guarantee trouble-free happy motoring. She will be delivered turnkey with a new MOT, a warranty and a service.
