The BMW E30 was produced from 1982 to 1994. The initial models used the Coupe body style. Four-door saloons were introduced in 1983, Baur built Convertibles were introduced in 1985 and an Estate (Touring) model, in 1987. The E30 platform was the basis for the first BMW M3. Externally, the E30's appearance is very similar to twin headlight versions of its E21 predecessor.

In 1985 a factory convertible entered the model range. However, the Baur remained on sale alongside the factory convertible. At Frankfurt in September 1987, BMW introduced a major update to the E30, and changes to the lineup were the addition of the Touring and removal of the 325e model.

This 1991 BMW 318 Cabriolet has been owned by the current owner for 21 years, but they have now decided to let their summer pleasure go to a new home. It is a Limited edition, believed to be one of only two hundred built in the beautiful Neon Blue, and only twenty of them were manufactured as an automatic. This makes this modern classic a very rare car.

The car has been used only on dry and sunny days, and has been dry stored with the roof up and away from the elements when the weather is not so good. The car looks and drives beautifully, and the gearbox is smooth. The interior is in good condition. The car carries an MoT until September 2010 and has covered just 110,029 miles. Stated on the current MoT the mileage reads as follows: 109,795 miles in 2018, 109,546 miles in 2017 and 108,911 miles in 2016.

Overall, this is a fantastic example of the classic E30. A sound investment and a great classic, ready to go. The BMW E30's are increasing in value year on year, and with a few small tasks to improve the car, this is most certainly a sound investment.
