Would You Spend £13k For A Low-Mile BMW E30 325i?

When popular models of the past show up in the used market like this E30 325i looking so clean and factory fresh, you have to at least take a look at it.

What we have here is a UK-registered 1990 BMW 325i with 68,000 miles on the clock claiming to be one of the cleanest and most original examples left.

Painted in Glacier Blue, the bodywork is claimed to be 100 per cent rust free and does look straight as an arrow with all the trim present and overall in a very, very nice condition. The BBS cross-spoke alloys were always a perfect match for the iconic E30 shape, and these ones are recently refurbished according to the seller to reflect the rest of the car’s condition. The cabin also looks immaculate, with the cloth on the seats showing no signs of wear and the driver-focused dashboard still retaining its factory stereo and the analogue clock. We spotted some minor wear at the driver seat’s back but that’s about it. There is also an unused tool kit, warning triangle and a first aid kit in their original housing.

Described as a two-owner car in the same family (husband and wife), this right-hand drive E30 325i comes with a full history file. The seller also says the owners “enjoyed the car for the majority of the car’s life until sadly the car was not able to be driven” without providing further info. The car was then garaged, which partly explains the low mileage.

This E30 325i was recently serviced at a BMW Specialist, with its timing belt and water pump also done. The asking price is £12,950, or $18,600 in current exchange rates. So, would you pay that money for one of the sweetest E30s out there?
