E36/5 = ti body style (318ti, 323ti)
E36/7 = z3
^^ These are actual BMW chasis numbers

M3/4 => short way of referring to the M3 sedan, the same way some say 540/6 to refer to the 6-speed manual 540i

E36 = 1992-1999 3series
E46 = 1999-2005 3series
It is the European Model designation. here in the states they refer the cars as model year + series. In Germany E46 would stand for year range and model
