1988 BMW E30 320i TC Baur Production #48716-13

I have owned this car in excess of 25 years and after recently restoring her, it’s now very sadly time to part ways.

As you can see this is a stunning and unique example of a BMW E30 TC Baur. The car all-round is in immaculate condition and all is working as it should. The engine has been cleaned, inspected and serviced and purring like a dream. Sporting a 2.0L straight six 24 valve M20 engine with just 129K miles on the clock, it sounds amazing with the stainless steel Scorpio DTM tailpipe.

The bodywork has been resprayed in the original Royal Metallic Blau (Blue) and fitted with factory M Tech rear skirt and side skirts. The boot lid is fitted with a custom rear spoiler. The wheels are 17” 10 spoke deep dish diablos with BMW emblems and M detailing. Two new front tyres and the rear tyres with good life remaining in them.

The canvas roof is like new, fully operating and can be split into two sections giving you options of how you would the like roof open. The rear section folds back over the parcel shelf and the large panel can raised to act like a tilting sunroof or completely removed and stowed in the boot.

The interior is custom with cream ruched leather seats all round. Recaro front bucket seats. Custom centre console with cream and black leather armrest and storage lid, and rear footwell light, matching cream leather palm rest, gear gaiter and phone/microphone panel, custom leather door pods holding Boston Acoustics Component speakers front and rear. It has a new Kenwood KDC-BT740DAB stereo with DAB+, dual phone Bluetooth, USB charging, Time Alignment for accurate sound synchronisation in the cabin, Built in Alexa and Spotify. CD player. JBL DA1002 Amplifier with Sony 8" free air subwoofer. A great sounding audio system without compromising any luggage space. The interior has also be sound deadened with anti vibration matting lined on the doors and in the boot. The rear quarter panel cavities have been fibreglass insulated. A voltage display and USB fast charger socket is installed below the cabin climate controls and along side a small coin tray.

The roof is lined with a grey Alcantara and the carpet in charcoal grey. LED illumination has been installed in the dash. Illuminating Gear knob. M tech steering wheel. A new rear ebmPapst 'low noise' fan has been installed. Has electric windows and mirrors. Central locking. Lower front fog spot lights. Blue tint sidelights. Near complete tool kit is also included.

New rear springs fitted. New front joints and suspension. Near new brake pads. New Exide Battery. Everything is working as it should and no advisories on the recent MOT. Furthermore, there is no rust anywhere and the underside has been inspected and treated with Shutz.

To conclude, for this special car it has a special key - a hand crafted mahogany head with chrome plate brass BMW emblem set into the wood.

Viewings are welcomed and recommended to truly appreciate this amazing classic and iconic car.

Asking price ~ £12,495
