1990 BMW E30 M3 Sedan / WBSAK0318LAE34003 Chassis Information

1990 BMW E30 M3
Sedan
Chassis #: WBSAK0318LAE34003
Sold for $98,000 at 2019 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island.
The E30 generation BMW M3 made its debut in late-1985 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Although it shared a similar resemblance to the standard 3-Series coupe, it was set apart by its unique body kit and boxed fender flares. The S14 inline four-cylinder engine delivered nearly 200 horsepower and various suspension and brake upgrades vastly improved the overall performance.

This particular M3 was originally sold to the United States, which means it came with an overdrive manual transmission with a conventional shift pattern instead of the dogleg setup in the European versions. As it is a later M3, it features the larger intake as well as a driver's side airbag compared to the earlier U.S.-bound examples.

The car was delivered new to California and exported to Japan a few years later. It returned to North America in 2008 and remained with its owner until late in 2018. The car remains in stock condition except for the exhaust temperature sensor and side marker lights that are mandatory in Japan. At some point in its life, it was given a two-stage repaint in its correct Diamond Black metallic finish. The black leather interior is original.

Currently it has 27,800 miles on its odometer. It recently received $12,000 work of mechanical work, including a valve adjustment, full tune-up, intake resealing, new front control arms, various suspension bushings, and a new heater core.
