1989 E30 BMW 320 Injection Automatic Baur T.C.
71000 Miles - 21 Stamp Service History
Full Leather - BBS Alloys - M Wheel
Total Show Condition

First registered and pre delivery inspected by Jacksons BMW in Jersey on
04.07.1989. The car has resided in Jersey most of its life coming
to our shores in 2013. In Jersey it had only 2 keepers, the first owners
tenure lasting until 2002, the second up to 2013. Since being registered in
the UK it has only 2 private keepers. Residing in the Chester area until
2018, it was then bought by husband and wife car enthusiasts from Peter
Vardy Heritage in May 2018 at a discounted price of £10200. The car has
been used sparingly since and resided in Cupar, Fife. This E30 is of the
highest quality and in virtual perfect condition with a high degree of
originality and a tasteful specification. Certainly, a vehicle that will
be both an appreciating asset and a worthy addition to any BMW collection.
The many detailed high-resolution images should illustrate just how
beautiful this example is, and, consequently how it differs greatly from
a tired UK example that at this age will be rough and worn.

The Baur Option

Baur is a Karosserie or coachbuilder in Stuttgart, Germany, which has
been building BMW convertibles since the 1930s. They enjoy an excellent
reputation for quality and do prototype work for many manufacturers such
as Porsche, Audi and Ford. The Baur family received a patent for the
design of a folding top for luxury automobiles around the time BMW was
building the first car with the BMW name. In 1971 they began production
of the safer "Targa-style" body with the 2002. (Targa was a registered
Porsche name, so they had to call it something else.) Originally an
aftermarket option available through BMW dealers, the E21 3 Series TC1
was built with full factory authorization, and covered under the factory
warranty. The roll-bar version or "Top Cabrio" (TC) continued with the
E30 TC2 even after Baur developed the BMW E30 Convertible design for
BMW, and which BMW built. These TC cars can be built at any time, on
an aftermarket basis, the owner supplies the car to be converted, a
costly bespoke option.

Service History
A total of 21 service stamps, 18 of which are BMW dealer. 2 documented
cambelt changes. A full spread of paperwork detailing the import process
and a decent amount of bills for work completed in the last few years.

and how it would respond when only a few years old.

of use. The cambelt was last changed at 61900 (with receipt), this was
