Vehicle description

Model history

The BMW E30 M3 is a vehicle of the middle class, which was produced from 1985. In the plans of the Munich carmaker, this high-performance variant was initially intended only as a small series, as it was to be available as a homogolation model, primarily for motor sports. However, the high demand for the sporty version based on the BMW E30 prompted those responsible at BMW to change the concept, so that the BMW M3 could be delivered as a production vehicle from 1986. Production took place at BMW M GmbH in Munich, which also released a convertible version in 1988 that still enjoys a loyal fan base today.

General information about the vehicle:

In this auction it is possible to acquire one of the popular BMW E30 M3 convertibles. The powerful vehicle with the VIN WBSBB050E0EB86480 rolled off the production line in Munich in 1991 and was first registered for road use shortly thereafter. The sporty BMW was in the past 30 years in the property of altogether 4 persons and remained according to current knowledge up to now accident-free. The history of the vehicle is well traceable despite some gaps in the checkbook, moreover, matching numbers and a TÜV registration valid until December 2024 are available. A certification as a historic vehicle has not yet taken place, but the future owner can take delivery of the road-ready and registered convertible with the original set of keys.

Exterior Color/Paint/Body

The dynamic BMW M3 presents itself in a classic black color and provides with the typical trim strips for this variant additional attention. The vehicle was partially restored for visual enhancement and the diamond-black paint was fundamentally renewed in key areas in this context. No modifications were made to the bodywork, so the appearance of this Bavarian horsepower wonder has remained virtually unchanged since it was first put into service. The highly polished convertible is given a special appeal by its front spoiler and side skirts; moreover, it can be seen from the photos that there is no major damage and only minor scratches.

Exterior Rims/Brakes/Suspension

Cross-spoke rims from BBS are mounted on the vehicle, which perfectly accentuate the character of this BMW M3 Convertible. They are in very good optical condition, as well as the brakes are fully functional. The Hankook Venitus Prime tires further emphasize the dynamics of this sporty BMW, but should be replaced promptly if used intensively.


The interior of the BMW E30 M3 Convertible offers a beautiful contrast to the black exterior paint. A beautiful, pure white was chosen for the design of the furniture, which is also used for the trim of the side doors and the design of the center console. Leather and plastic materials have been lovingly arranged, while the cockpit designed in classic black and the typical M3 colors also contribute to the visual variety. The cabin appears very well-kept in all areas, while ABS, power steering, power windows and central locking provide technical comfort, while air conditioning, heated seats and radio contribute to the pleasant travel ambience.


The BMW M3 has not been overused in the past decades and has covered a relatively low total distance of just over 225,000 kilometers for this vehicle. This information can be read on the speedometer dial and is confirmed by the documentation for the vehicle, as well as no limitations on functionality were found during the inspection of controls and gauges.


The sporty BMW M3 Convertible is equipped with an S14 B23 engine from the Bavarian carmaker, which was specially developed for the vehicle designed as a homologation model. With four cylinders and 2.3 liters of displacement, the unit achieves an output of 215 hp (158 KW) and is controlled via a manual 5-speed transmission. The dynamic BMW accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 7.3 seconds and can reach a top speed of 239 km/h. The last service on the vehicle was performed in December 2022, during which no signs of failure were detected on the engine and other technology.


The vehicle was partially reconditioned and the underbody was cavity-sealed in the course of the reconditioning. It presents itself with its components in good to very good condition, with only slight traces of corrosion detectable in a few areas.


The BMW M3 is handed over with numerous documents, whereby in addition to the official papers a checkbook provides information about the history of the vehicle. In June 2022, a vehicle appraisal with market value assessment was carried out by an expert and an overall grade of 2 was awarded for the technical and visual condition of the convertible.

Who is the BMW E30 M3 Convertible for?

The E30 M3 is one of the most popular vehicles produced by the Bavarian automaker BMW. An important contribution to this cult status was made in 1987, when Roberto Ravaglia won the first World Touring Car Championship on a vehicle of the series and caused additional interest of many fans who love motor sports. To this day, the BMW M3 is particularly suitable for enthusiasts of the brand who value pure power and high driving comfort. A special prestige object is idas offered in this auction convertible, which has real rarity value with under 800 copies produced and guarantees the new owner maximum driving pleasure in addition to interested looks.
