1987 BMW E30 M3 Evolution 1 (Est £30,000-£55,000)

The M3 debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1985 with deliveries of this exclusively left-hand drive model commencing a little over one year later. Magazine road tests were soon reporting top speeds of circa 140mph (225km/h) and a 0-60mph (0-97km/h) time of around seven seconds, highly respectable figures even by today’s standards. The M3 boasted chassis improvements, like lowered and stiffened suspension, wider wheels, five-stud hubs, ventilated front brake discs, ABS and a limited-slip differential as standard. The gearbox was a five-speed close-ratio Getrag. This example has just over 50,000 miles on the clock,and is described as rust free.

I nearly bought one of these in the early 70's but it was about £1400, over a year's salary. I did buy a Hillman Avenger which was a complete load of rubbish. I had to have new cam followers at just over a year old. Rootes admitted that a batch of cam followers had not been nitrided but did not offer any financial assistance with new ones!
