It is the Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another edition of Daily
Turismo’s weekly game of duck, duck, turkey also
known as Mid Week Match-Up! The last two MWMU features have focused on specific requests from our readers, so we continue with a request from Dominic who is looking for an E30 generation BMW 3-series M3 in any condition under $10k. Personally, I think he will need to settle for a 325i since the M3 version has skyrocketed in price in the past two years. A project went from sub $10k to about $15-20k; check out this graph from Hagerty.
More info from Dominic:
There are some specifications though. It would have to be a 1991, US
coupe model with the sunroof not the convertible top, and glacier blue
(metallic light blue) with not much work done. I’m looking for
definitely a lower price, under 10k, even if it needs a little work, and
within 300 miles of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Unfortunately, $10k E30 M3s listed for sale are almost all scams using other folks’ pictures (stay away from oodle, that place is littered with con artists).
In a quick search of E30 3-series on eBay, the best I could find was this 5-speed black/black 1990 (later plastic bumper) 325i, currently bidding for $3,161 reserve-not-met, located in Manassas, VA.
Can you find something better for Dominic? Comments below.
