If you know anything about E30 BMWs, you know how rare this car is in the US. I owned this car for about 2 years while living in the United Kingdom and have recently imported it back. The car has a March 1988 manufacture date and was legally imported under the 25+ year old provision just last month, September 2013. The car is fully registered in Oklahoma with a clear title in my name. I have not swapped the plates out yet, but I have included a picture of the OK plate. I am unsure how I would want to mount the plate so I will leave that up to the new owner.
Overall, the car is very solid, but not perfect. It is 25 years old after all. The paint has a couple of issues. There is a scratch down the right (driver's) side of the car. The sunroof has some scratches. The hood has a scratch and an area where the clear is peeling. One of the rear quarters also has a small area of clear peeling as well as a ding in a couple of scrapes. There is rust in the lower portion of the drivers front fender. The wheel arches and corners of the windshield are all rust free as can be seen in the pictures. I have tried to picture all the blemishes, no matter how minor. Please take a good look at them. If you need a picture of anything else, please let me know.
Mechanically the car is spot on. I have not had any issues in the time I've owned it other than the starter needing replacing. I would not hesitate to drive it on a cross country road trip. It has been lowered slightly, I'd say 15-20mm. Looks good and doesn't ride rough. The headlight wash/wipe doesn't work. There is a common problem with the motors needing taken apart, cleaned and re-greased. Everything is there though.
The interior is clean and damage free. The seats work as they should. The metal rod that holds the load bay cover has separated from the cover, so it cannot be closed. It just needs putting back in and the cover glued back together. This is how it was done at the factory, just needs redoing.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions. If you would like for me to call you, please send me your number and a good time for me to call. If you are local and would like to take a look at it in person, we could do that as well.

The 2 Series is a relatively new member of the BMW family, having been spun off of the 1 Series (itself one of the company's youngest lines) just last year. So far the range has been split between the Active Tourer and the 2 Series Coupe, but soon the latter will breed a new compact convertible to take the place of the outgoing 1 Series cabriolet, and here we have our best look at it yet.

Spied with the most minimal camouflage and its top down while undergoing its final rounds of development testing, this pre-production 2 Series cabrio looks about ready for show time. While the Active Tourer is based on a different front-drive platform, this convertible is, as you might have guessed, essentially a 2 Series Coupe with a folding fabric roof. That means rear-wheel drive (or potentially all-wheel drive if BMW extends its availability from the coupe to the convertible) win either 228i or M235i specification - both of them turbocharged, the former with a 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter four and the latter with the 320-hp, 3.0-liter inline-six.
Considering that BMW got an approximately $8k premium for the 1 Series convertible over the coupe, expect the 2 Series cabrio to start at a little over $40k for the 228i and top out at around $53k for the M235i xDrive convertible. That is, assuming BMW offers it in that top spec, because at that rate we're getting perilously close to the $54,900 base price of the 435i convertible.
As BMW gets closer to introducing the production version of its plug-in i3, we keep seeing the hatchback being tested with lessening degrees of design-obscuring camouflage. Last we heard, BMW is expecting to have the i3 ready by the end of this year, and the swirly, blue camo does little to hide its basic design in these latest spy shots.

We get our first clear look at almost everything above the wavy beltline including the silver roof edges and matching mirror caps, and it can't hide the dip in the beltline behind the B-pillar - matching what we've already seen on the i3 Coupe Concept unveiled at the LA Auto Show last year. Another change we notice is the lower portion of camo removed from the front fascia allowing us to see the air opening and the black, vertical inserts leading up to the fog light bezels. Judging by the "Hybrid Test Vehicle" stickers on the side of this prototype, we can only assume that this is the optional range-extended model.
With a week to go before the global debut of the BMW i3, BMW has announced pricing for its first-ever production electric vehicle. The all-electric version of the i3 goes on sale in the second quarter of next year with a starting price of $41,350 (*not including $925 for destination nor any applicable government tax credits).
Some of the pricing elements for the i3 that BMW continues to withhold are the cost of the model using a gasoline motorcycle engine as a range-extending generator, or that of the DC Fast Charge option. This latter feature will allow the i3's depleted lithium-ion battery pack to get an 80 percent charge in just 20 minutes; for comparison's sake, the DC quick charge feature is a $750 option on the 2014 Chevy Spark EV.
Sure, we've already driven the BMW i3, but the production version of the BMW EV - promising the interior space of a BMW 3 Series - will be unveiled next week at simultaneous ceremonies in New York, London and Beijing. Scroll down for BMW's brief press blast regarding its upcoming i3.
