M3 Convertible E30 1989 Chassis # X03559056

A fine and original example of the first-generation E30 M3 Convertible that has benefitted from extensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration work completed by BMW Group Classic.  

While the E30 M3 was produced in relatively large numbers in coupe form, this is one of only 781 Convertible models built.

Under the bonnet sits the 2.3-litre naturally aspirated ‘S14’ inline-four, coupled to a five-speed dog-leg manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels.

Included with the car is a vast array of history documenting the recommissioning work completed.

This example is finished in the subtle shade of Macau Blue Metallic with a dark blue fabric roof over a black leather-trimmed interior.

Inside, the specification includes front sports seats, an M-specification steering wheel, air conditioning and a BMW Bavaria C Electronic stereo head unit.

It now rides on a set of 16-inch Alpina alloy wheels.

Included with the car is a spare wheel and jack, and all documentation relating to the car’s restoration by BMW Group Classic.

The last service was completed in June 2021 at 80,030 km by BMW Service Dusseldorf, and consisted of annual maintenance plus the replacement of the brake discs and pads.

Prior to this at 79,069 km, the car received numerous replacement parts at BMW Group Classic as part of its restoration.
