Description BMW E30 320i 4-Door Saloon 1987 (Pre-Facelift) Chrome Bumper Gold FULL History

BMW E30 320i 4-Door Saloon 1987 (Pre-Facelift) Chrome Bumper Beige/Gold with FULL Service History & no major rust.

This is a much-loved car and I have done over 40,000 very happy miles in her, it is a genuine and very reluctant sale.  She was my daily drive until February and comes with I believe the complete service history - we are talking a wedge of papers that date right back to the early days in the 90s, I was told it was complete when I bought the car and saw no reason to doubt it with the amount I was given.  Unfortunately my job is changing and I am having to do more driving and need something that is going to be able to take the mileage, this is too good but too old a car for that.

E30s are classics, proper iconic cars and this beauty is no exception, good as a family car with a lovely Straight-6 2ltr M20 engine which has plenty of oomph.  5 speed manual gearbox.  She is fun to drive but comfortable and spacious enough for 5 easily both for space and power.  I have spent many years driving BMWs of the 80s and 90s and these are quality cars built to last, the components are solid and the build is excellent.  It’s why so many have survived and why they are so loved to this day. I looked at many cars that were 10-15 years old that were in far worse condition in all departments.

She has a rear spoiler, original BBS BMW Alloy Wheels x 5 (the spare is in excellent condition and with near new tyre).  The BMW beige comfort leather interior is in very good condition including the driver’s seat, no rips or wear.  The sunroof and windows are all manual so no issue with electrics, comes with the original BMW toolkit in the boot, also the original BMW wheel jack and tyre iron.

I have loads of other pictures which I can send, I’ve taken ones of the arches so you can see how little corrosion there is.  There is a little bobbling on the sunroof under the lacquer, also on the read spoiler where one of the screws are.  There is no welding required, no rust patches to be dealt with for MOT which for an E30 is very rare.

She needs some work for the MOT which I detail below so you’ll see it is the sort of consumable work that periodically needs doing anyway.  The exhaust was actually replaced in 2016 so I think there is a crack annoyingly but the majority of it will be fine.  All in all she is worth spending a little money on and getting up towards showroom condition which with very little work she could achieve but ideally needs garaging whilst it’s done which is a facility I don’t have.  She is in my garage at the moment and will need towing/trailering away.  I think likely a new battery as it wasn't holding a great charge before.

She last drove under her own steam to the MOT station in February and hasn't been driven since so she will need a jump at least as this is what the AA man had to do then.  Please come and look at her and you'll know what a wonderful car this is.  

• Reason(s) for failure
Nearside Front Seat belt locking mechanism does not secure or release (5.2.5a)
Brake hydraulic reservoir fluid level below minimum level (3.6.G.1b)
Battery insecure (1.9.1)
Offside Front Headlamp aim too high (1.8)
Offside Front Rear position lamp(s) not working (1.1.A.3b)
Central Exhaust has a major leak of exhaust gases (7.1.2)
Offside Inner Suspension arm has excessive play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2)

• Advisory notice item(s)
brake pad warning light on
cross brace on top of shocker mounts has bolts very lose
front brake discs corroded badly on inner edge need replacing
play at n/s and o/s steering rack
n/s/f lower outer and inner ball joints have slight wear
both lower arm rear rubber bushes weak
rear tyres worn on inner edges
brakes pass rolling road test but need some attention

In 2014 she passed MOT 1st time with 1 tyre advisory.  Halfords were so surprised they thought their machine had broken!!  One of the pictures is the last few years of MOT so you can see the work that has been done.  The stack of paperwork you can see in the collage pictures.
