It is no secret that the Daily Turismo staff are fans of both wagons and E30 BMWs, but the combination is indeed a rare sight on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. The BMW E30 Touring was never sold new in the US Market, but BMW sold a number over in the continent as late as 1994 (after the rest of the 3-series lineup had moved onto the E36 body style). Find this 1989 BMW 325iT wagon for sale in St. Louis, MO currently bidding on ebay for $12,200 reserve-not-met with 4 days to go.
This E30 325i is the most desirable of series-2 E30 wagons as it includes the larger 2.5 liter M20B25 inline-6 making 170 horsepower and is mated up to a 5-speed manual transmission. Performance won’t be M-class, but it should sound sweet at a “boil” and the E30 is a decent and competent chassis. However, the reason we like the E30 is because it is a cheap-fun-rear-drive sedan…the minute they become expensive (M3, rare imported wagon…etc) our desire drops considerably.
