1988 BMW E30 M3 15k Original Miles!

1988 BMW E30 M3

VIN: WBSAK0309J2197176

Production Date: 12/1987

15,632 Original Miles,

Exterior: 203 Salmon Silver Metallic (Lachssilber Metallic)

Interior: 0295 Natur Bison Leather

This color combination of Lachssilber Metallic/Natur Bison Leather was not officially offered by the factory only Black Bison Leather or Cardinal Red Bison Leather was available with Lachssilber Metallic. We believe this car was special ordered and is one of six in this color combination.


0401 Steel Power Sunroof , 0410 Power Windows 2 DR, 0530 Manual Climate Control, 0540 Cruise Control, 0551 On-Board Computer, 0675 Stereo Sound System, 0900 Anti Theft Immobilizer, 0941 Special Equipment Handling


This M3 was originally delivered to its first owner Corey J. Haim the child actor/movie star (The Lost Boys) in Los Angeles, CA in December 1988. Corey kept the car until late 1989 at which point it was sold and exported to a private collector in Japan. I re imported into the USA in May of this year. Only driven sparingly over the years the car currently has 15,650 miles.

Condition & Maintenance:

Although the car arrived from Japan with extensive service history (in Japanese) I decided to embark on a comprehensive mechanical re commissioning due to the cars age and low miles (invoices available on request). Below is a list of work recently completed with OEM Parts:

New Gas Tank, Fuel Pump & Drive Shaft Bearing (fitted in Japan)

Changed all fluids & filters (Redline Oils)

Valve Adjustment

New Alternator

New Battery

New Spark Plugs

New Coolant Expansion Tank & Thermostat.

New Windshield Washer Reservoir

New Drive Belts

Serviced the Instrument Cluster with New SSI Board

Completely serviced the brake system and replaced any parts required, pads and rotors show +75% wear remaining.

Serviced the A/C System with R12

Replaced front lip spoiler

Sourced correct OEM newly refurbished wheels and center caps added new Yokohama S Drive tires including the spare.

A comprehensive paint and interior detail has also been completed.

The car has received some paint work during it’s time in Japan, it shows no evidence of accident damage or rust and the paint shows very well.

The car is completely stock, unmodified and as delivered, apart from OEM ROW/EURO Front Fender Side Marker Lights which were required for importation into Japan, to compliment these I added the OEM ROW/Euro Front Bumper Tow Hook Covers & the Rear License Plate Panel. It comes with a complete tool kit, jack etc… & M3 Owner’s Manual, with most of the original documents intact.

At this point the car is immaculate needs nothing and is ready for a new owner to enjoy.

Price: $120,000

The car is located in Toledo, OH and has a lien free Ohio Title.
