BMW never made a wagon version of the E30 M3, or even a sedan version for that matter. That however did not stop someone from making their own. The car you see above is an uber-rare (in U.S.) E30
Wagon Touring with fenders off a wrecked E30 M3 race car. As you can image the addition of the wider rear fenders was a lot of work, but the work on this car didn’t just end with some fenders and lowering springs. No, in fact there is a lot more…
Story time: Few years ago a good friend of mine who is deeply passionate about E30 BMWs bought some red E30 M3. He was telling me how the car was owned by this and that person, how it had a ton of history, etc. It was a clean car, but being completely OCD, my friend Jerry decided to improve upon it. Once improved the car won Best E30 M3 and Super Clean Class at some concours event.
That wasn’t enough for Jerry however. He had a vision for his little M3 which since then has received a complete re-spray and new… well, new everything. Jerry’s M3 is amazing, but it can upset a few purists. He doesn’t care, as the car is improved in every way and it’s his own, and he’ll keep it forever. I’ll get pics and full write up on it some time over the summer when I make it to NJ and have some time to meet with him.
The reason I brought up Jerry’s M3 is because the work on was done by the very shop that built this M3 wagon. I have seen a number of cars that came out of that shop now and the work, the craftsmanship, and the attention to detail is simply amazing. Not one bolt, not one washer, nothing is left a chance. I am certain the pictures don’t do justice to this wagon and that it is probably well worth the money the seller is asking.

While the car may not to everyone’s tastes, mine would more OEM-looking for instance, even if you hate BMWs, one must appreciate the work that went into this car. The fender installation, the re-paint, the engine, the interior upholstery and leather, and the best and rarest of OEM and after-market parts.
