The BMW M3 line has cemented its place in automotive history as one of the most iconic and performance-oriented automobiles ever produced. The story of the M3 starts in the demanding and unforgiving works of motorsport. BMW wanted a car that could compete in DRM and would meet the FIA’s Group A Regulations.
From there, the E30 M3 was born. First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1985, the new M3 would feature significant upgrades as opposed to the base model 3-series of the time. Every single body panel was changed to make the E30 M3 truly unique and one of a kind, upgrades to the brake calipers, discs, and master cylinder were all unique to the M3. New suspension was installed all around, which included: new control arms, offset control arm bushings, revised front strut tubes, and a new sway bar.
This examples drivetrain has been modified with a S52 engine lifted from an E36 generation M3, a 6 speed manual transmission taken from an E46 330i ZHP, “smiley” Euro spec headlight, BBS wheels, Bilstein struts, springs, additional gauges, and iE muffler.
This particular M3’s title was branded as Rebuilt in 1999. It’s been passed down that the damage was to the front end and the only panel we’ve seen without a matching VIN tag is the driver's side front fender.
The E30 M3 represents a unique opportunity to own a part of history. With the newer models becoming increasingly reliant on technology to push performance further, the E30 is truly the most analog experience you will ever have in an M3.
