i know that the M3 verts where never released in north america this one was imported to Canada from Germany 4 years ago, after it had been restored in Germany. Looks very similar to the picture, he has the original germany factor spec sheet that came with the car. So i'll have to take a good look at it. M3 or just a E30 convertible it is in great shape, a really good looking car. My first BMW and i look forward to driving it.
