One of the iconic sports saloons of the nineties, BMW’s E36 3-Series in six-cylinder form had the looks, the performance, the driver appeal and of course the image to become an extremely coveted car of its era.
Aside from the M3, the largest-engined 328i with the coupé body and Sport specification was most desirable of the lot. Of course, like most cars of this era, they descended from executive trophy into the hands of those who ran them into the ground, modified them then scrapped them at the first hint of trouble. So finding truly exceptional, low-mileage examples of these cars has become very hard indeed.
This high-specification 328i Sport Coupé has had just one owner from new and covered an incredibly low 34k miles, supported by a Full Service History.
First registered on March 31st 1999 (making it one of the last of the E36 series) by BMW dealer Whitehouse of Ruxley, this 328i was ordered in the very rare colour of Sierra Red with contrasting light grey leather trim. It was highly specified (full options list below) with Lux pack, M Sports package, automatic air conditioning, automatic transmission, M Sports suspension and multifunction steering wheel, automatic transmission, BBS split rims alloy wheels and so on.
All original books, manuals and tools come with the car along with a Full Service History comprising of 13 stamps. Seven stamps at the supplying BMW main dealer, the following six at one specialist. It was last serviced on 08/03/17.
In addition, the car comes with its original bill of sale for £33,111.46 and a clear HPI Certificate.
The car is in unmarked condition throughout. Commensurate with its low mileage and sole ownership this E36 has been beautifully cared for from new. The car is rust-free with perfect and original rear wheel-arches, the paintwork exceptional and the original split rim alloy wheels recently refurbished and wearing matching Michelin tyres all round. The number plates are the dealer-issued plates front and rear.
Similarly, the interior is superb with almost no wear evident as the pictures depict. Even the torch in the glovebox is present.
On the road the BMW drives beautifully with all the crispness you get from a carefully maintained low mileage car.
In summary, a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional, low mileage 328i Sport Coupé in a very rare colour with perfect history. A true modern classic.
