The BMW 3 series is a compact executive car manufactured since
May 1975 and has been produced in six different generations and in
five different body styles. It is BMW's best-selling model,
accounting for around 30% of the BMW brand's annual total sales and
has won numerous awards throughout its history. The E30 was sold
from 1982 through to 1991 in saloon form and through to 1993 in
convertible format. Both four-cylinder and six-cylinder petrol
engines were used, with a six-cylinder diesel added in 1985 and in
1987, the first all-wheel drive 3-series was produced, called the
325iX. The E30's introductory price was nearly double that of the
E21 just seven years earlier. Initially released as a two-door
coupé, the four-door saloon body style was added to the 3-series
line up in 1984 and in 1987 the first BMW M3 was released; based on
an E30 the M3 coupé was an instant success.
This BMW 320i convertible is in outstanding condition. The diamond black paintwork is unmarked and the black leather trim in excellent order. With one previous owner this BMW has clearly been a much loved member of the family. Arguably in the best colour combination for a 3 series convertible, this 320i automatic is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until 28th October 2013, together with the original service books and literature. The tool kit is original and complete and the spare wheel appears to be unused. The low mileage of 23,615 represents 1,000 miles for every year since it was first registered on 1st August 1990. To appreciate how original this car is, viewing is strongly recommended.
