Another Low Miles e30 M3 Comes Out of Hiding

Here’s a perfect and bone stock 1988 BMW e30 M3 For Sale on eBay with only 38k miles. The car had only been listed for 2 hours and saw 10 bids immediate up to $18k, reserve not met. Has 6 days left.

quote from seller’s eBay listing:

THIS IS REAL 38,000 MILES 1988 M3 ,GARAGE KEPT, RECENTLY SPENT ABOUT 10K ON ALL BMW BRAKES,TUNE UP,A/C, ECT. RUNS AND DRIVE LIKE NEW, NEVER WRECKED,CAR IS IN GREAT CONDITION

This one will be swinging for the fences. I’m guessing $25k-ish being low miles, red on black, garaged and having received a recent $10k service. Post your guesses below in the comments. Closest guess to the winning bid gets notoriety and fame that will live on forever in this post!

Update: Auction ended no sale at $20,100.00.

Now Relisted

  1. I’d go with the $25k ish estimate also. The problem I have with this car is that it’s listed by what appears to be a small-time dealer. If it was by the original or even latest owner I’d be more inclined to be trusting. I wonder if the guys on s14.net know the car or have any comments?

    Other comments: Is it just me, or does the black leather have a hint of grey/blue? Could be lighting, but it just doesn’t seem black enough. Even worn/cracked interiors I’ve seen looked blacker. Perhaps the leather cleaner/conditioner used caused it? The only photo that really looks like henna is the one showing the paint sticker on the shock tower. I know henna is hard to photograph, and lighting, individual computer screens, etc. can have an affect, but it just looks too red and not orange enough. What I’d like to see is the VIN sticker in the door jamb showing build date. Not to validate the build date, but to see if it has had a respray. It’s very rare to find a respray where there hasn’t been even a little bit of over spray on that sticker.

    I’m encouraged by the fact that there are still low mile hennas out there… unless this is the last one! If we go into recession, I wonder if this would be a better investment than my 401k…..

  2. No question about it Neil, if I was going to drop that kind of coin on a collector car like this, I’d make damn sure to get PPI done and maybe even try to get contact with the previous owner.
