Tuned 1990 BMW M3 “DTM Edition” Will Set You Back $90,000

What do you do if you’ve got an old BMW M3 and you’re also a huge fan of the 24-Hour race at the Nurburgring? A father-daughter combo answered that question by having this E30 M3 converted into a self-labelled ‘DTM Edition’.

According to ClassicDriver, where the car is currently up for sale at $90,015, all the mods were done in an extremely professional manner – and we needn’t even look that hard in order to see just how much hard work went into this classic Bimmer.

The M3 underwent a great number of mods, gaining a roll cage, suspension struts and strut braces, a Sport EVO carbon fiber rear wing, carbon fiber front lip spoiler, carbon fiber mirror covers, BBS racing wheels with titanium bolts, a sports exhaust system, racing exhaust manifold, an engine conversion and, of course, the Speed Yellow exterior paint job.

Meanwhile, the interior features a carbon cockpit design, Recaro carbon hybrid racing seats with six-point harness straps, plus a detachable racing steering wheel.

As for performance, the ad claims that, despite the odo showing a total of 101,880 km (63,306 miles), its current 195 PS (192 HP) 2.3-liter four-cylinder has been run for just 2,000 km (1,242 miles) – which makes it barely run-in…

The thing is, while the M30 is probably the most desirable of all M3s so far, and this one’s got a sleuth of upgrades, does it justify spending 90 grand on it? Well, what say you?

    That’s gonna be a definite NO. You don’t increase the value of a newer car with mods, and certainly not by modding a classic car. Especially modding it years later.

      With a roll cage..

    It’s cool but I’m not sure it’s 90K USD cool…, but hey, what do I know?

  • no25

    For $90k you could just buy a brand new fully loaded M3 and have money left over. Not worth it.

      Do you not understand that some people prefer classics over new cars? That’s like saying, “Why would you buy a 246 GT when you could get a brand new 488gtb for the same price?”. That being said, I think the yellow paint job is garish and wouldn’t be a buyer for this particular E30.

      • no25

        Yes, sweetie. I know that. I am just pointing it out.

        And cool for you. I don’t particularly care if you’d be a buyer of this particular E30 or not.

            You realize that by replying with more petulance, you’re just further cementing my argument, right?
