1987 BMW M3 E30
At one point in time, the M3 E30 was the car that everyone wanted to own. It had style, performance, and a great reputation. But there was something far more special about the E30, and that’s reliability. There were quite a few noteworthy BMWs from this era, but the E30 quite possibly is the most reliable model that left the dealership lot (via Hot Cars).
The E30 has stood the test of time as one of the most reliable BMW models in the company’s history. An added benefit was that it’s fun to drive as well. You don’t get a lot of cars from this era that were both fun to drive and reliable. But the excellent build quality and the stellar styling made the E30 an icon in the automotive world that still holds true today.
