1989 BMW E30 M3 Sedan / WBSAK0300K2198332 Vehicle Information

Sedan
Chassis #: WBSAK0300K2198332
Sold for $96,250 at 2015 Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction.
The BMW M3 had a similar appearance to the standard E30 3-Series - from a distance. The M3 shared only the bonnet with its 3-Series sibling, the most visible difference was the wider front and rear wings, steeply raked rear window and raised boot. These changes were made in the interest of aerodynamic efficiency. The chassis was lowered and the suspension was stiffened. It was given wider wheels, five-stud hubs, ventilated front brake discs, ABS and a limited-slip differential as standard. The gearbox was a five-speed close-ratio Getrag.

In September of 1985, the M3 made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Deliveries of the left-hand drive model began a little over one year later.

This car is an original example that has just over 10,700 miles on its odometer. It has its original cosmoline finish in the engine bay, full tool kit, Owner's Manual and Service folio. It is finished in its original color scheme of Cinnabar Red with a black leather interior. The car rides on BBS wheels and has a rare sunroof option.

The dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine is fitted with a Bosch fuel injection system and produces 192 horsepower. There is a five-speed manual transmission and four-wheel vacuum assisted ventilated disc brakes.
