Even equipped with its body kits the Bavarian remained beautiful and attractive. Victorious in Germany at the DTM championship, she participates and wins numerous rallies. In 1987, an M3 won the European Touring Car Championship and five other titles and finished second in 1988 in the European Rally Championship. From 1985 to 1990 BMW will sell about 17,000 copies of a real race beast. Today very rare in good original condition, an M3 e30 is a rolling myth.
