Saw the first E30 M3 in Hong Kong (excellent condition)

While driving home the other day. I caught a glimspe of what has to be a E30 M3 (in red). Seems to be first and only E30 M3 I saw in Hong Kong, a real classic. I am pretty sure it is a M3 (and not a modded E30) because the size and proportion of the spoiler is right and it is a coupe. The paint job is in excellent condition, but could'nt see the interior. Anyone else seen this or other E30 M3 in Hong Kong?

How much would a good condition E30 M3 cost in HK? Anyone willing to make a guess?

ICy J: Yeah there actually is a 3.0 CSL in my carpark, owned by a Brit I think.

Nice photos! It's hard to see E30 M3s in HK, how did you manage to snap those photos?

All E30 M3's are LHD. The ones you see in Hong Kong and Australia are converted into RHD. It isn't because it is not popular, on the contrary, most car enthusiasts in Hong Kong and China know about the E30 M3 through the Macau WTCC races 20 years ago.

It is still in very high demand, but I do believe there is roughly 10 E30 M3's around in HK, but only 2-3 have surfaced for sale to the public where the rest are passed down from private collectors to collector. With such rarity you would think that the ones that are on sale to the public for HKD 280K, will require you some time, money, and effort to restore to its healthy state.

HKD $400K is where I would start before you get some collectors interest in selling their M3. It all depends on how much you appreciate and want the car.

Thanks for the info. Yeah I would imagine a E30 M3 would cost quite alot.

Hey All,

I've been in HK for about a year now and just bought an E30 Vert.

Can you locals recommend me a good HK based forum / or a good BMW mechanic/shop?

Thanks in advanced!
