  • BMW E30 325i Cabriolet Automatic
  • Full-service history with last service less than 1,000 miles ago
  • Sought after Cinnabar red paint
  • Exceptional original condition


The E30 shape is one of the most iconic shapes of the 1980’s, and in Cinnabar Red this example really stands out. The condition of the paintwork is impressive given the cars age, showing no signs of fading or blemishes across any panels. All four 16” original wheels are in ‘as-new’ condition and are wrapped in branded tyres with a healthy amount of tread left. The soft-top roof is also in great condition, with no marks or tears present.

Moving onto the interior, the cabin is in much the same condition as the exterior. Presenting exactly how it left the factory in 1988, all switches and buttons work as they should, and appear original without fading. All seats are in good condition with no significant signs of wear. The soft-top has been tested and goes down and re-attaches as it should.

The 325i is powered by the sought after 2.5-litre M20 petrol engine producing an impressive 168bhp. Coupled with a great engine, the original exhaust sounds fantastic on idle, whilst not being obnoxiously loud. Coupled to the engine, is a four speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.


Accompanying the car is the original book pack supplied from new, with the all-important full service history, and last documented service being carried out in August 2021, less than 1,000 miles ago.


Representing fantastic value for money, this is the opportunity to purchase an investment grade collectable or a summer toy, ready for many miles of roof-down trouble-free motoring. With a full-service history and a range of great factory options, it will be difficult to find another in such original yet immaculate condition.
