BMW E30 M3

Finding the right E30 M3 nowadays can be a challenge. Limited edition cars such as Cecottos or Evolution models have heavy price tags, and the few restored or concours standard cars that are left fall into similar pricing brackets. Paying those prices makes it harder in reality to do what the car was actually designed for. DRIVING.

At Munich Legends, we are best known for low mileage, super special or collectable BMWs. But occasionally we make an exception for our favourite models, like the E30 M3. There is always an audience for every type of E30 M3, and it could be argued that this is the point where ///M really began, on the tracks and in the showrooms back in the mid 80s. We’ve sold interesting ‘project cars’, which can often be something of a euphemism for examples that need serious care and attention. But this particular car does not fall into that category – whilst it could be described as a project car, it certainly is no basket case. On the contrary, given the mileage and age of the car, it is in remarkably good condition, as is obvious from the pictures. It is a project car in the sense that the new owner has the opportunity to take an excellent base car for development or restoration, be it a full body strip and nut-and-bolt rebuild or a more measured refresh, but it is also perfectly usable as a day to day driver. In fact, it may be one of the few E30 M3s available on the market today that can be used (and abused?) without the feeling that its value is being compromised, and without being overly precious about parking it wherever your journey takes you. Could this be the perfect ‘driving’ E30 M3 to accompany a garage queen – one to display and one to drive? Or a stylish daily driver that pulls the maximum of admiring glances, for people that like to use their classics without the worry that comes with depreciating a low mileage, high value example?

Our workshop team have carried out a full and uncompromising inspection of this pretty Lachs silver example, and are very pleased with the results. Mechanically sound and physically fit, the Lachs paintwork hides the odd defect extremely well, making it a handsome car that demands no immediate attention. The engine has the familiar tune of a well run-in S14, pulls well, and stops as it should. The interior, again as seen in the photos, is quite tidy, and any improvements required by the new owner will be easily achievable. All these elements make this particular M3 a very rare thing indeed – a handsome, affordable classic E30 M3 that you can enjoy without worry, every day.
