  • 1990 Zinno/Black 77k

    For Sale is my 1990 BMW E30 M3, built date 7/89 with a Clean Title. Since the first time I ever saw one of these cars I knew I had to have one. This car has been my pride and joy for the last 5 years. It has only been driven on sunny days and has never seen rain or snow. It has always been garaged. I have driven the car less than 1500 miles in the past 5 years and the oil has been changed before and after winter storage, with Mobil One 15w50 Full synthetic. The car has almost been washed more times than it has been driven.

    I purchased the car in November of 2006 in Bedford Hills New York. The previous owner took very good care of the car and had it serviced regularly at BMW of Manhattan and Bimmers Only. I have a stack of service records that come with the car documenting all the service that has been performed over the last decade.

    Engine/Transmission

    The S14 Engine runs great, idles properly with no vacuums leaks. The motor pulls hard throughout the rpm range and has never been abused. The oil temp has always been above 140 degrees before being drive spiritedly. The transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and has always been filled with Redline MTL.

    Modifications
    Turner Motor Sport chip
    Evo II Adjustable cam gears
    K&N Air filter
    Short shifter kit
    Oil Baffle
    Polyurethane alternator bushings

    Interior:

    The interior is in excellent shape the dash is soft and has absolutely zero cracks. The leather seats have been condition regularly and have only minimal wear for their age. The carpet is clean and free of major stains.

    Upgrades
    Alpine 7894 head unit with Green/Amber color (to match interior lighting)
    One piece illuminated leather shifter


    Chassis/Suspension:

    The suspension responses quickly and has amazing balance. All of the bushings are tight and feel great, the car handles like a dream. The underbody of the car has no rust and has never seen rain or snow.


    H&R Sport Springs
    Bilstein Sport Shocks
    Racing Dynamics Front Strut bar
    Racing Dynamics Rear Strut bar
    Ireland Engineering Front Sway bar with reinforcements
    Ireland Engineering Rear Sway bar with reinforcements and adjustable end links.
    Zimmer Cross Drilled Rotors Front and Rear
    New tie-rod ends

    Exterior:

    The Zinnoberrot paint is in good condition for the age of the car. The car has had some paint work here and there over the years but has never been in a major accident. I believe all of the panels on the car are original. I took pictures of the vin tags on the fenders and doors but did not pull the rear bumper to check the rear quarter panels. The car has a small patch of rust below the windshield on the passenger side that can be seen in the pictures. The paint has been clayed and waxed regularly. Overall the car looks great for being 20 years old.

    The car is equipped with 17inch Konig Five spoke wheels and Yokohama tires.

    215/40/17 Up Front and 235/40/17 Rear.

    I feel that I have described the car to the best of my ability. This is a fine example and a timeless classic. Serious inquires should come see this car in person because pictures do not do this car justice. If you have any questions please contact Colin.

              If the rust spot is small it could be repaired no problem

              IMO i don't think you are ready to buy an e30 M3

                Good call on the 3 years and 11 months. Its really felt longer than that.

                The rust spot isn't bad. I peeled back the windshield gasket and it does not go back far at all. The car has only seen water to be washed so the rust has not progressed.

                  He says build date 7/89, which means this is an '89 not '90

                          Just need to look at the VIN.....it's likely a '90....many cars were produced prior to the actual year. If it's a '90 the VIN will have "LAE" in it...if it's an '89 it will have "K2" or "KAE" in the number.

                              Because I don't post pics that means that I'm not being honest?
