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.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
