CRUIZIN -> Before making any global statements about what BMW did or did not do you should look into facts and figures.

This link is where I got my information http://www.bmwworld.com/reviews/m3_automatic.htm

I have always used references for my posts and never go beyond my knowledge base when I try to help individuals on this forum as I do not believe misleading people is a way of helping them.

That being said, check the statement below and check the link that the statement came from. You can also visit http://www.bmwheritage.com

In 1995, a ZF 5HP18 five-speed automatic transmission was offered on the M3 as optional equipment. During the 1994 to 1995 model year, around 10,000 USA and 18,500 non-USA versions of the M3 were produced.

http://www.conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z2196/default.aspx

The M3 lineup expanded in '97 with the U.S. introduction of the four-door sedan. The engine had been enlarged to 3.2 liters in '96, which upped torque 11 lb-ft to 236. While all M3 coupe models used a five-speed manual, the M3 sedans came with rowable gears or an optional five-speed automatic. Rarest of the M3s are the Lightweights sold in '95 and '96, although only 122 of these upgraded-performance coupes made it to the U.S.

http://www.motortrend.com/buyersguid...5_1999_bmw_m3/

And my last refernece is my friend's 1997 M3 5 speed automatic that I just drove back from the Montreal F1 because he got too drunk to drive back on his own.... yup Villeneuve hit the wall "AGAIN" at least Heidfeld finished.

I believe a the +1 no longer applies.

My mistake was not posting my reference(s).

I can post more references if required!

My M3 is a five speed automatic. Hopefully it won't be for much longer, but that's what it is now. I'll happily take a picture for you if you want.

True, but the 97' 3.2 has the same horsepower figure as the 3.0. It does, however, have 11 lb/ft more torque at 400 lower rpms. Depending on final drives, the figures probably are not far off.

3.2 also has 3.38 final drive while 3.0 - 3.23
If anyone is interested - u.s. specifications :
http://www.kevinshen.org/bmw_e36_3_s..._us_specs.html

as you see 3.2 0-60:6.4, 3.0 0-60:6.9
