A fabulous and very rare BMW E30 318i Convertible Motorsport Design Edition

Monocoque all-steel bodywork, front and rear crumple zones, rubber side strips, front air dam, twin halogen headlamps with ellipsoid technology, green tinted glass, central locking, lockable illuminated glove box with torch, padded front roof pillars, leather sports steering wheel, power windows, electric door mirrors, fuel consumption gauge, service interval indicator, analogue quartz clock, toolbox in boot lid.

The sleek, stylish and classic lines of a BMW E30 convertible are emphasised when finished in this exclusive colour of Neon Blue Metallic, (Code 255).  This is one of only two colours available for this limited numbers edition and boasts a brilliant deep shine.  A smooth glossy appearance from a pampered existence will please show goers as onlookers gaze in amazement how clean this example is.  All the trim, bumper rubbers and lenses are immaculate.  A handful of tiny touched in marks mainly to the front bumper can be seen under close scrutiny along with some minute front screen debris.  The cleverly engineered roof mechanism has benefited from a replacement in 2013 at considerable cost and still looks perfect.  The engine bay again is clean and original. A true embodiment of sheer driving pleasure.    

The cockpit of this 3 Series is typical BMW design arched in a concave arrangement around the driver offering a whole range of working exemplary functions.  The sports seats finished in Anthracite/Blue Cloth, (Code 463), have the unique blue piping and matching door cards are unmarked.  The supportive driver’s seat bolster is still the original cloth and has worn remarkably well with only the lightest wear.  Carpeting and trim plastics are factory perfect and the boot area spotlessly clean still containing an unused tool kit, jack and warning triangle.  The boot floor still has the factory sticker.  Superior materials along with careful appreciative ownership defy the age of this interior.  Perfect efficiency.

The heart of this fun E30 is the water-cooled four-cylinder in-line engine longitudinally mounted and inclined.  Producing 113bhp, a top speed of 116mph and 0-60mph in 12.0 seconds is quoted.  Incredibly smooth thanks to a crankshaft running in 5 bearings with 8 counterweights and efficient too with a combined mpg of 32.1 due to Digital Motor Electronics this model makes a wonderful ownership proposition.  The hydraulically actuated single-plate dry clutch with a reinforced torsional vibration damper engages five gears precisely.

BMW cross-spoke light alloy wheels fitted as standard are unmarked and are shod in branded 205/55 R15 tyres with ample tread.  Swing-calliper disc brakes front/rear, inner vented at the front, provide effective braking.

Supplied new on the 12 August 1991 to the first of just four former keepers this example remained in BMW care up to 92,714 miles.   An abundance of service invoices chronically filed in date order will please those seeking a well maintained example with documented history.  Every MOT is date filed too and tax discs stuck to A4 sheets.  Three purchase invoices reveal the prices owners paid to have such a sought after model.  All the handbooks are still contained within the grey A5 folder and a full complement of keys remain with the car including BMW alarm fobs.    

MOT March 2015, HPI Clear.
