European Car Restorations:

Let me start by saying that I’ve owned and built quite a number of BMW e30 convertibles (check my gallery above). This particular example has to be one of the cleanest, meticulously maintained e30 that came into the shop! It was owned by a female owner who took care and maintained this convertible religiously! The car is very tight, free of any interior or exterior shakes/noises. This is rare for e30 convertibles, with the top closed the car feels almost like a coupe but to truly experience it, put the top down and enjoy this topless beauty!

Body: Complete e30 M3 conversion including Front Bumper (Euro Evo III style – no side markers, Custom Shave, Brake Vents, Porsche Rennline Tow hook, Evo II front lip), e30 M3 front fenders, e30 M3 side skirts, e30 M3 rear bumper (Euro Evo III style – no side markers), e30 M3 rear quarter panels, BMW e30 325iS coupe trunk. Custom Silver metallic paint job – only the best materials were used – primer, paint, clear. Brand New Smoked Euro style smiley Headlights with city lights, front turn signal indicators and rear taillights have been re-cleared and look new ! This convertible looks amazing in person!

Interior: Sport leather interior in excellent condition – no rips or damage, heated front seats, re-covered in leather rear seat. Premium Sound system, Original BMW stereo system (I have the code). New OEM Amplifier (replaced by he dealer), Avital alarm system with 2 remote controls and LED scanner (you can lock/unlock the doors remotely). Excellent dashboard, Excellent carpet, original BMW mats!

Engine/Suspension/Brakes: The engine has always been maintained (receipts available)! Full tune-up including the Timing belt, Water Pump, tensioner, spark plugs, wires, gaskets, seals and water hoses has been done. Rare BMW Motorsport valve covered (black powder coated) Brand New brakes all around ! (New rotors, pads, sensors, brake fluid flush). Recent maintenance included: new idle control valve, valve cover gasket, new rear wheel bearings, new front control arms, off-set bushings. New Bilstein sport shocks and Eibach lowering springs! Exhaust has been replaced ! Everything is in excellent condition!

Pics from the restoration, when the car first came to our shop

Work started on the doors, shaving the molding off and making them look like m3 doors while fixing few dings and scratches

Shaving the antenna off (the car has remote antenna on the windshield now)

Thanks for looking !

    Hi,

    Really love the car!!! I wanted to know, do you have 5 lug swap on this car? if not, how did you get the BBS RC’s to fit? I am halfway through my own project and am wondering whether or not RC038 OFFSET 22 5X120(rear wheels) would fit E36 5 lug on e30 m3 replica???…thats given me a headache!!! Hope to hear from you soon, thanks in advance.
