I don't think their will be a 90's collector car. The E36 M3 was made in to many numbers to be a collector car. However, one of the rarest M3's is the Canadian Euro-Spec M3 from 1994. They were OBD1 M3's producing 386 HP. Only 45 were ever imported, with only 43 actually making it to dealers. One was wrecked in transit, the other in a test drive. They retailed for $59,000 new apperantly. Some of the original owners want unrealistic amounts of money for them. I saw one for $40,000 but that's way overpriced. Finding one that hasn't been butchered will be tough. Hard to find someone that would baby the car knowing its rarity.

Their is only one other M3 that was made in even less numbers. The E36 M3R. Only 15 were ever made and they were sent to Australia for their racing series. Only 11 were offered to the public but you needed a CAMS license (racing license) to be allowed to purchase one.

Their was the M3GT Prototype which was use for testing components but where it is I have no idea. Their was only 1 made.

Hey Vader thanks for the quick reply. I'm thinking more along the line that mere mortals could own. Maybe well used? Let's stay to mass prouction lines. A car or engine that Bmw just nailed it. I'm open to the entier line 3,5,7,8 ,m's x's i's z's any thing.

BMW "nailed" their inline 6 engine. That was probably the bet engine they ever made. Winning numerous Engine of the Year awards. Their V8's had a few oil problems.

The Canadian Euro Spec M3 is attainable by "mortals", just Canadian mortals. It can be imported into the US if you want

Other then that I would get an Alpina. The Alpina B8 is an E36 with a 4L V8! They can be had for about $20,000 CAD. The Alpina B10 is an E34 5 Series. The B10 BiTurbo is faster then a Ferrari Testarrossa.

The automatic trannsmission in a 325i with an M50 motor is the A4S 310R. The Manual trannsmissions were a Getrag S5D 250 G. As per the Bentley Service Manual for the E36. Reference page 213.
