One-off BMW M3 30 Years American Edition
BMW unveiled a special one-of-a-kind M3 at SEMA in Las Vegas this October to commemorate three decades of BMW M3 sales in the USA.
Christened the “30 Years American Edition”, this stunning 2018 M3 Competition Package was dramatically customized by BMW DesignWorks and BMW Individual. Its gorgeous Frozen Red II metallic finish with handsome carbon-fiber detailing is complemented by split-spoke M Performance alloy wheels finished in faint gold. A striped carbon panel tops the cabin and an aggressive carbon-fiber M Performance spoiler graces the rear.
Inside, the leather interior pays tribute to America with an eye-catching red, white and blue color scheme accented here and there by carbon fiber panels, as well as anniversary graphics on the headrests, dashboard and rear window.
The same powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine as found in the 2018 M3 Competition Package produces an inspiring 450 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Mated with a 6-speed manual transmission, it rockets the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.0 seconds flat.
This one-of-a-kind BMW M3 30 Years American Edition will sell for $128,635, which is over twice the price of a standard 2018 M3 Competition Package. But any long-term investor will surely consider it a steal.
Of course, most BMW enthusiasts aren’t long-term investors and even the standard 2018 M3 Competition Package is a little expensive. So we happily drive older versions of the ultimate driving machine that retain their value despite spirited everyday driving.
At Japan Car Direct, we’ve had the honor of providing enthusiasts around the world with some very affordable used BMWs from the Japanese market, where owners tend to keep them in tip-top condition and wide-ranging Japanese used car auctions and used car dealers provide a steady supply of diverse used BMW models. The following are among the many used BMWs we’ve exported abroad.
2000 M Coupe (E36)
The M Coupe is what happens when five passionate BMW engineers transform a roadster into an exhilarating high-performance coupe — a cult classic beloved by enthusiasts and collectors alike, as reflected by skyrocketing prices far beyond the original MSRP.
When you drive an M5, you’re telling the world you’ve arrived. This masterful piece of German engineering with exceptional handling and near perfect weight distribution delivers over 550 hp from a turbo V8 and will leave a Countach behind in a 0-60 dash.
1988 E30 M3
Racing machine meets comfortable four-seater in the legendary first-generation M3 — one of the greatest cars of all time. This is the car that comes to mind when enthusiasts see the slogan “The Ultimate Driving Machine”. It blew away targeted competitors Mercedes-Benz and Audi and became the most successful touring car in racing history.
For those seeking the unrivaled feeling, performance, style and status of a BMW, we highly recommend checking out the Japanese used car market. Japan Car Direct can help you find, purchase and import the secondhand BMW of your dreams at a price that will put a smile on your face.
Awesome experience !! Their service was extremely good and efficient. Yoshiro was soo patient with my many requests for information and translations. The vehicle purchased was better than expected. I would definitely consider using their services again.
All I can say about the experience is AMAZING! I worked with Matthew and he was helpful through the whole process of bidding, purchasing, and shipping the car to me. He had an answer for every question, and was always quick to respond. Enjoying my new Mercedes and I will be using them again!
All around exceptional experience! Matt was great to work with and guided me through the entire process with ease. As a first timer, importing was a bit nerve racking but JCD did a great job providing a cool little truck I can enjoy here in Delaware. I look forward to picking up the next toy/vehicle through them.
The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!
Mathew was great to work with and made what could be a scary daunting experience very easy. I am super happy with my car and am sure I will be importing with them again!
Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.
Just purchased my second car through Japan Car Direct. Could not be more pleased with their customer service. Matt went above and beyond to help me find the right car. Translating countless auction sheets, messaging sellers, requesting vehicle inspections, putting up with me and my requests well after his time in the office, etc. I can happily and honestly say that I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a car from Japan and that you will not be dissappinted. Very kind, helpful and professional. Can’t wait for vehicle number 3.
Mathew and the team are amazing. Bought my first Porsche in Japan and they have helped me all the way through. They are competent and honest people, will definitely be doing more business with them. Thanks guys!
Mat is is the best he was right on target and video descriptions are perfect. Shipping was alot faster than I thought it would be, as JCD didn't mess around. My van was at port and ready to go. I will be using JCD again soon, got my van now I want a car.
I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience. Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
They've somehow made what was expected to be complicated, so simple. I got all the info I needed and imported my first JDM car without a single problem. Matthew was super fast to respond and always had an answer.
A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!
This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!
