The BMW 325i was a massively important car for BMW - and it remains an enduring success today. The E30 generation cemented BMW as the market leader in the medium-sized saloon sector and although it looked little different from its predecessor, thanks to understated styling by Claus Luthe, it was far more convincingly engineered and far better to drive. The upper models in the range, with their straight-six power, rear-wheel drive and perfectly judged steering, were the ones to have. The 320i and - even more so - the 323i/325i were a real driver's delight and the E21's propensity to oversteer when it wanted to, had been tamed considerably in the E30. The manual 325i Sport was the best of the lot and with that wailing engine, controllable rear-biased handling and all-round quality this was the sports saloon to beat.
Offered here is a stunning 1986 BMW 325i Sport M-Tech1 finished in Diamantschwarz Metallic with a black leather interior and an automatic gearbox. Originally ordered by a Mrs Spears, the car was in fact first registered to the supplying dealer, Derek Woodman Ltd, as a demonstrator for the MD to use! Returning from a two week holiday, Mrs Spears was annoyed to find out the car had been used whilst she was away and it was then registered in her name on 01/08/1986.
This car has been the recent recipient of a full recommission to include a full service, new cambelt and an MOT which expires in June 2020. The original book pack and tools remain in situ and the original service book records multiple stamps for maintenance over the years from the supplying dealer.
Supplied with a great file and a UK V5c, rarely do E30 BMWs of this quality come to market and, with this car showing just 43,650 miles, we feel it really will live up to its slogan ‘The Ultimate Driving Machine.’
