Successor to the well liked 1602/2002 range, the 3-Series debuted in 1975 and would go on to be an even better seller for the Munich firm than its predecessor. Built initially in two-door form only, the newcomer made use of BMW’s existing range of four- and six-cylinder overhead-camshaft engines. Four-door versions were added when the 3-Series was face-lifted (as the E30) for 1983, improved rear suspension arriving at the same time. Coachbuilders Baur in Stuttgart had been producing convertible BMWs in collaboration with the factory since the 1960s and continued to offer a Targa-style version of the E30, to which BMW added its own full convertible in 1985. Most of these second-generation 3-Series models were replaced by the new E36 range in 1991, the exception being the convertibles, which kept the old-style coachwork until 1993.
Finished in red with grey cloth interior, this right-hand drive 318i Convertible has the desirable five-speed manual transmission option. The vehicle appears very well kept and benefits from a new mohair hood. Running and driving very well, this stylish soft-top is offered with substantial BMW main agent/specialist service history, sundry invoices, MoT to August 2006 and Swansea V5.
