BMW 1968-1991

Seen $40K on the windscreen of a 2002 and thought ‘not possible’? Then look at similar cars offered in Europe for A$60,000 and perhaps think ‘not bad’.

BMW’s original compact sports sedan and grand-father to the M3 has always enjoyed classic kudos and they were raced with some success. So too the E30-bodied 325iS but very few sell in Australia and we can’t confirm $50K as realistic.

Other representatives of BMW’s 3 Series [E21 and E30 cars] remain in reasonable numbers and affordable.

Pick of the bunch would be the scarce E21 Series 323i and more common E30 version, 325i and the 320i convertibles sell for a sensible $9000-12,000.

2002 $41,075 [4] 

320/323i E21 $9115 [7]

318/320I/323i/325i E30 $8710 [54]

320i/325i Conv. E30 $12,740 [23] 

325iS $55,500 [1]
