    A BMW that’s more than a bit of all white

    How about this for some old-school 1980s cool – a white BMW 325i Sport. Well, it’s a 1990 car, but still... It’s up for grabs with Anglia Car Auctions at its 24 August sale – but this is more than just any auction car. Firstly, 20% of the hammer price and all fees will be donated to the Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund.

    Secondly, it’s a car that ACA themselves have gone to town on. The camshafts and cambelts were replaced 200 miles ago, and the bodykit carefully removed and any problems with the body addressed (again only using original BMW parts) before being put back together again. ACA estimates that £20,000 has been invested in the car. Its paperwork includes the original service book, receipts and MoTs. It was stored between 2007 and 2012, and its mileage stands at 110,825 miles. The car is being sold with no reserve; so a chance of a bargain, a greatcondition car and you’re doing some good. Definition of a guilt-free purchase? More details at angliacarauctions.co.uk

    Best buys 2019 / #BMW-E30 / #BMW /

    Thoroughly enjoyed Mr Quentin Willson’s recent piece on Smart Buys, all lovely cars and sage words indeed. Many years ago, I decided to hunt down a nice BMW-E30 when they were plentiful and relatively cheap – a £1000 or so would get you on the ladder and £3-4k would buy a really nice one. After looking at several saloons that didn’t quite tick the box I chanced upon a nice manual #BMW-325i-Touring-E30 in Malachite Green and snapped it up. I still have it today and although I bought the E30 so I could enjoy driving it and without consideration to future values, it’s reassuring to know it has earned its keep over the years.
    • Smart BMW, smarter Alfa? I can’t help sharing Quentin Willson’s advice (Smart Buys) on the E30 Touring – stylish, relatively practical and just magi Smart BMW, smarter Alfa?

      I can’t help sharing Quentin Willson’s advice (Smart Buys) on the E30 Touring – stylish, relatively practical and just magical with that straight-six. I had been considering buying one but a Dutch ad for a 72,000km, one-family-owned Alfa Romeo 156 Sportwagon 2.5 V6 24v in light metallic green with natural leather made me change my mind – even though I had sworn I wouldn’t buy another Italian car after selling my beloved but troublesome Lancia HP Executive.

      They are not as in-demand as the E30 Touring, but in my opinion just as stylish and enjoyable. Moreover, they are much cheaper – at least to buy – if you can find one of course. The only fault identified so far is that they turn like trucks, and I am of course (mentally and financially) preparing for the €2000+ timing belt and water pump replacement. With that, a full service, tyres and compete detailing, the Alfa will cost me €10,000 – about half the price of a 325i in the same condition! That’s just unbeatable as far as I’m concerned.

    Brightwells, Leominster, March 6 Quentin delved into the BMW E30’s rising status in the last issue, where he understandably favoured the 2.5-litre cars. It seems that collective enthusiasm has already spread to lesser models – this was an overestimate result for a four-pot, four-door E30 with an auto ‘box. Balancing all that out was pretty minimal mileage at 38,350, most of its life with the same family, plus plenty of history.
