e30 Calypso, 4 door, 325i stick rare?

I recently came across a nice 1990 325i for sale online.

It's a Calypsorot (Burgundy-ish red). Which seems to be kind of rare color where I live.
(I'm in the So.Cal. orange county area)

It's got the plastic later day bumpers, which seem to be pretty popular.
It's a 4 door. Also, did I mention, it's a 5 speed stick shift?

I know it's not an an M3, but it seems to me like it might be a hard find for a couple different reasons:
-The color (think i've only seen 1 other calypso e30, in person, my entire life. It was a 318i convertable)
-Plastic bumpers (from my understanding, they only made these toward the end of the line)
-4 door, stick! hmm. i don't think you see too many stick shift 4 door cars in general, since they're more family oriented... is this true for Bimmers?

It's an older car, and needs some TLC here and there.
But all the major stuff seems to be in tact.

What do you guys think?
Is this a good lead to follow up on?

Need quick response before it's gone!!

I dont know about the rarity at all, but I DO know that 5 speed sticks came in both 2 door and 4 door bmws. And as far as I know, the plastic bumpers started somewhere in between 87 and 89 and ended with the end of the E30 generation. My 1990 has plastic bumpers.
