Vehicle description

Model history

The BMW 320i Convertible is part of the so-called 3 Series and is a mid-range vehicle that was produced between 1987 and 1991. Now considered a classic, the automobile is part of the E30 series within the company, which replaced the first three-series BMWs starting in 1982 and included a diverse range of products. In 1985, a vehicle with an open top appeared for the first time in 15 years in the form of the BMW 325i, and from 1987 further models were delivered as convertibles in the form of the 318i and 320i. They were particularly technically mature and could be delivered with a hardtop or folding top painted in body color if desired.

General information about the vehicle:

In this auction, a beautiful BMW 320i convertible can be purchased, which left the factory premises in March 1989. It was first registered for road use in the same year and has been owned by only two owners in more than three decades. The timelessly beautiful automobile had already been immobilized and forgotten for 10 years, was lovingly restored in 2022 and restored to great general condition. A checkbook is not available due to the long time in slumber, so no statement can be made about matching numbers. The dynamic 320i Cabriolet is verifiably accident-free in its current ownership, but has not yet been certified to carry H-plates. The vehicle with the VIN WBABA110X0EB42370 is registered as well as equipped with current TÜV certificate and will be handed over to the new owner with the original key set.

Exterior color/paint/body

The BMW 320i is painted in an elegant dark blue. This is probably the mauritius blue that is popular in connoisseur circles, and the soft top is also designed in a very similar look. The paint is basically in good condition, only in some places, which are well documented by the attached pictures, minor scratches and a dent on the side door mar the overall appearance. The hood has already been repainted, otherwise only a few adjustments have been made to the body and the rest of the exterior.

Exterior Rims/Brakes/Suspension

The 320i Cabrio uses attractive BBS rims to get around, giving it a particularly classic look. They exude dynamism when combined with Pirelli Powergy tires, though the tires should be replaced at the earliest opportunity. The brakes, on the other hand, are in good to very good condition, and the chassis and its components are also fully functional.


The sporty BMW 320i Convertible was equipped with sporty leather seats, which exude a pleasant elegance with their dark and beige color scheme. Similar components have been used for the trim inside the vehicle, while the dashboards shine in classic black. The cabin of the vehicle looks very neat, as well as the trunk with its gray velour lining and tool kit is clean and without damage. Key technical features include power steering, power windows and the flexible folding roof, while air conditioning, heated seats and a radio also ensure a comfortable ride.


This timelessly beautiful convertible from BMW has covered just over 200,000 kilometers in its history. This information can be read off the speedometer display and can be partially traced through the available documents. All instruments were fully functional during the appraisal, likewise no limitations could be observed on the display elements.


The BMW 320i Convertible is equipped with the standard 6-cylinder M20B20 engine, which produces 129 hp (95 KW) at 6000 rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission is used to transfer power, allowing the zippy BMW to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 197 km/h (197 mph). The vehicle was meticulously overhauled and received a new operating license at the beginning of August 2022. The last service on the vehicle took place during the same period, so the BMW 320i Convertible will not have to be presented to the TÜV again until August 2024.


After its reactivation, the BMW 320i Convertible underwent a complete technical inspection and was partially refurbished. After more than 30 years, the underbody remains in good to very good condition and, with a few exceptions, is largely rust-free. A light corrosion attack can be observed on the exhaust system, which is nevertheless fully functional due to the installation of a new tailpipe.


During the long period of decommissioning, some documents of the BMW 320i convertible have been lost. The checkbook could no longer be found, as well as a new operating license had to be applied for due to missing evidence. For this purpose, an expert opinion was prepared that verified the history of the vehicle, so that all relevant documents are available.

Who is the BMW 320i Convertible intended for?

Since its introduction in 1987, the BMW 320i Convertible has become a true classic among automobile fans. It combines BMW's reliability and performance with the timeless elegance of the 3 Series and its successful design conveys pure summer feeling. The unusual blue top of the vehicle is a real eye-catcher and makes this BMW 320i convertible a real rarity. It differs from other open vehicles by its inimitable appearance and will give the future owner a lot of pleasure with perfect road holding and high comfort.
