The BMW 3-Series E30 is one of the most iconic vehicles in the BMW lineup that defined the design theme of the brand for decades ahead. Its simple, yet aggressive design is familiar to any car guy and brings back the good memories of the 80s and 90s era.
Being produced from 1982 till 1994, it was available in various body styles such as the coupe, sedan, wagon, and of course the convertible, which now became the most desirable option for both collectors and regular enthusiasts. It’s no wonder that prices on convertible models skyrocketed within the last 5 years making these cars harder to obtain.
Unlike the modern Bimmers, the E30 looks and feels simple which allows you to enjoy a truly analog driving experience. When equipped with the right parts, they can also bring a lot of joy to fans of spirited driving, and this beautiful E30 convertible that you see in the pictures is just like that.

The car is owned by Chris from Norway and features a lot of tasteful and period-correct upgrades. It’s powered by the M20B25 straight-six engine with fully restored original Sebring headers and a deep-sounding custom exhaust.
“The wheels are BBS RF, love them. It’s something different. The E30 is lowered with KSport coilovers and works like a charm. Trying to keep the car as much OEM as possible Absolutely, like how E30’s look. Just need wheels and lowering”
“Another small, but stylish detail is the rectangular Hella fog lights with plastic covers that add a few more points to the period-correct look of this BMW E30 convertible”
