Classic Car Auctions says:

Really well presented E30 325i Cabriolet with just two owners...

  • The 'Bronzit Beige' Metallic (looks like Silver/Grey) coachwork remains in excellent condition
  • Classic black leather 'Sports' interior is very tidy and gently patinated
  • Freshly serviced and fully belted, with a new MOT, some history and the original Bill of Sale
  • The E30 is a proper four-seat convertible and still tremendous fun to drive
