1990 BMW E30 318i

The BMW E30 is the second generation of BMW 3 Series, which was produced from 1982 to 1994 and replaced the E21 3 Series. The model range included two-door sedan and convertible body styles, as well as being the first 3 Series to be produced in four-door sedan and wagon/estate body styles. It was powered by four-cylinder petrol, six-cylinder petrol and six-cylinder diesel engines, the latter a first for the 3 Series.

The 318i two-door was launched in SA in 1983. It featured a 1766cc four-cylinder engine good for 77kW but this was replaced with the M40 1795cc four-cylinder in 1989, which saw the power increase to 85kW. At this stage, BMW swapped out the early chrome bumpers for the plastic equivalents. Air con, leather upholstery, metallic paint, alloy wheels and sunroof were all optional extras.

This Example

Description by seller:
This car has had 3 owners from new, the last 2 being in the same family. All of the owners were BMW enthusiasts and kept the car in its original condition. The car is a former 2010 concourse-winning car (BMW Car Club Gauteng). It is always parked in a garage and is never driven in the rain. Once a week the car is detailed with Meguiar's products only.

This is truly a time capsule, and everything on this car is period correct. All the rubber fuel lines and water hoses have been replaced with original BMW ones on the last service which was in January 2021, along with a complete inspection done (all filters, spark plugs and oil). 

These are the period-correct options the car has:

OEM Sport front lip

OEM mud flaps

OEM Prestige panel rear

OEM E28 M5 boot spoiler

OEM torch in cubby

Factory air-con

Aftermarket rear exhaust box changed to dual pipes with period-correct chrome tail pieces (branch and centre box still original)

45mm lowered suspension, the standard springs will be included in the sale

All windows are original and have their correct numbers

Car is only serviced with OEM parts (last service at 107 440kms)

Panasonic tape deck from factory (owner's manual included)

No cracks on the dashboard

Original paint, boot was colour-matched to fit the M5 spoiler

Full service history from new

Things which need attention:

Carpet underneath brake pedal is worn (see attached picture)

Two front tyres need to be replaced. All 4 tyres are older than 5 years, however the rear tyres have plenty of tread.

This immaculate BMW E30 318i is available to view in Johannesburg by appointment.
