BMW’s E30 3-series is hallowed for bringing some fine driving dynamics to the Bavarian automaker’s compact executive car. The E30 entered the scene in 1982 and ran all the way up to 1994. It’s also renowned as the series from which the M3 was born, featuring the iconic high-revving engine and sublime handling. If you’ve been lusting after an E30 – and there are quite a few who do – here’s a fine 1990 BMW 325i Convertible from that generation. Coming to you from Virginia, this 126,104 mile example has been family owned since new and comes with all documentation, books, records, and complete history from new. The owner proudly states that the car needs nothing and would happily drive cross-country without worries. It’s also reportedly nearly all-original and nothing has been modified.
1987 saw the E30 receive its refresh or mid-life facelift, featuring redesigned rear lights, a new front bumper, and other enhancements. This 1990 BMW 325i Convertible proudly sports all those features in its distinctive Bronzit Beige paintwork with those lovely period-correct BMW alloy rims that are wrapped with Falken tires that the owner states were replaced around 5-6 years ago but remain new and there’s relatively low mileage on them. The soft top was also replaced due to cracking in the soft rear window. Indeed, it’s not often you’d come across a car of this vintage in such careful condition. The interior maintains the carefully used and lovingly cared for ethos in all its beige leather glory. The dashboard looks pristine too, and the original climate control with air conditioning is present, as is the period-correct BMW radio cassette and on-board computer. The analog cluster comes from the pre-digital era and is refreshingly old-school with its clear and easy-to-read BMW font. Open the boot lid and the original toolkit is present on the inside of the boot lid.
Pop the front-hinged hood and have a look at the powerplant of this 1990 BMW 325i Convertible. Whilst the model could be had with a range of four and six cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, this example packs the smooth 2.5L M20 gasoline straight six that sends 168hp and 164lb-ft to the rear wheels via a four-speed ZF automatic gearbox. Braking is via discs on all wheels.
