Ever Seen A Brown BMW E30 3-Series Wagon With A Diesel Engine?

The BMW E30 3-Series Wagon is one of the most sought-after vehicles from the company and has established a rather large cult following. We suspect this particular example may upset some traditionalists.

Built on a farm in the UK, this E30 Wagon looks like no other we’ve come across in the past and features a diesel engine. This powerplant was built from July 1991 through to February 2000 and was used in a handful of E34-, E36-, and E39-generation models in various forms. It was also available in the 1995-2001 Range Rover 2.5 D/DSE and the 1995-2001 Opel Omega.

A host of custom parts, including the headers and exhaust, were built by the owner meaning this engine is a touch more desirable than it once was. However, we certainly wouldn’t call it the sexiest engine around, particularly when you consider some of the iconic petrol-powered inline-sixes BMW built in the 1990s.

While we’re sure some won’t be enamored with what’s under the hood, it’s hard not to be impressed by the E30’s brown paint scheme that photographer Larry Chen says has been so well executed that it looks like glass. Completing the external tweaks are a set of bespoke deep-dish chrome wheels, a black splitter and an air suspension kit that ensures the car can sit just millimeters above the road when displayed at a show and raised when driving.

Extensive modifications have also been made throughout the interior, including re-trimmed seats, an eye-catching three-spoke steering wheel, and a wooden BMW shift knob.

    Wagon? CHECK
    Brown? CHECK
    Diesel? CHECK

    This car is basically the Holy Grail for eccentric car nuts everywhere. I’d change the wheels but otherwise, I LOVE IT!!!
