Hello motor enthusiasts: your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own BMW's most iconic car! There are but a handful left in India in good running condition, and it is with great sadness I'm putting my baby E30 on the market. It's been with me for over 10 years now. It was fully restored to showroom-like condition around 2017 and has since run without fault. Check out more pictures and videos here:

My usage has been very low (barely 1,000 km, if that, post restoration) and I need to make space for another baby have my eyes on, so this one needs to make way unfortunately.

A lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone in to restoring it to the condition it is - you will only know once you see it and drive it. Have done a few Sunday morning / Sunday evening long runs on it, because it's mostly been a weekend car and is best enjoyed on open roads and twisties - it drives like a go-kart!

All of the parts lised below have been imported (duh, obviously!) from one of the following coutries: USA, UK, Germany, Poland

DM for offers and details. Educate yourself on the history and lineage of this rare machine if you're a newbie and DO NOT send offers if you're unaware. 

Price slightly negotiable for offers on the table - grab this opportunity, because not many in such pristine condition will ever hit the market again. Lowballers will be blocked immediately.

Special package worth 6L may be offered to the new buyer, depending on the final offer price.
