Introduction

Here we have a very low mileage, low owner example of on the most sought after E30’s, the special edition E30 318 IS. This example has covered only 50,000 miles , in the hands of the same owners since it was purchased from the BMW dealer at 4 months old. They wanted a new one, but there was a waiting list for this model, so they bought this as new example from the supplying dealer. This a rare car, low mileage example of the IS are almost impossible to find. They were only made in limited numbers and they tended to be enjoyed, commonly covering over 150,000 miles by now. These cars were nicknamed the ‘Baby M3′ and were built to take on the hot hatches of the time, Golf GTI’s, XR3i’s etc. So they were produced at the end of the E30 run, using the excellent 1.8 16 valve twin cam engine, Sports suspension, Manual gearbox etc. As the production run was only 2 years, they are now one of the rarest of the E30’s and sure to go up in value very quickly now !.

Bodywork

This example is finished in Stirling Silver paintwork.  It really is in outstanding, original condition. If you are looking for as close to original as you will find, this is it. Look closer, there are no noticeable dings or dents. Look inside the arches, underneath this car, all you will find is original metal, all original panels etc. You just cant find them in this sort of condition, this really is as good as they come ! This example obviously comes with the distinctive and original 318is front spoiler, along with the rear spoiler, colour coded bumpers, original 14 inch alloys etc.

Interior

The interior is finished in the Anthracite Sports check cloth. This again is in excellent, unmarked, original condition. Everywhere you look. There is a lovely Msport steering wheel, gear knob. The amazing condition continues to all the trim and door cards, carpets, headlining etc.

Options

This BMW Features PAS, ABS, Electric windows, Sunroof, Original stereo, full toolkit etc.

Documentation

This example features a fully documented service history from new. We have all the original manuals, a fully stamped original service book, all the keys, a folder full of ALL MOTs and ALL service receipts, Original sales brochure, Original BMW advert, All the keys etc.

Summary

Now we get to the best bit, how this car drives. Well its amazing, excellent well balanced suspension, lovely tight steering, it has a real sporty feel. The engine sounds and performs as good as any you will find. The engine is so responsive and eager to rev, just has they were designed to be. This model on paper has similar performance as the 2.5 Msport, yet it achieves it in a very different way. This model encourages you to use the revs of the engine, everything feels much lighter. I guess thats why it was nicknamed the ‘Baby M3′ as it feels very balanced and its got that superb power unit upfront.

I think that give you an idea how good this example is. You could spend years looking for one as good as this, so with prices sure to rise, this example must be seen.
