Talking

Hey, Hi to all, I new to the Bimmer scene. I don't posses one yet, but I am planning to get one after the winter. I would really like an M3. Possibly 95-99. I saw a post about this, but not much info was given. I like to know how do you guys lie them, performance, maintenance. Want to convert, but I really need the info to make the switch. any ideas? Comments?

Well first, welcome to the forums.

We all like them very much.
some basics are that the 95 has 215 whp and the 96-99 has 240whp, because the 96+ are OBD-II, so they are 3.2L instead of 3.0.

but, to find em:

That car was banging, but way too much money for me. There is one that lists for 6,500. That is scary!!!

I bought my 97 M3 sedan in March of '04. Performance is great, and i love the styling. Origionally i was looking at a '01, but for me there is something about the E36. maintenance is not too bad so far, but i would defenatly have at least $2k in the bank just in case, peace of mind imo. They excellerate strong and the breaking is awesome, 111FT from 60mph to a dead stop. Cornering is also awesome, but make sure you don't cheap out on tires or you won't be able to push it to what its capible of. I would recomend taking your time in looking for one. I spent a year to find mine. If this is a car you really want, go for it. You will not be disapointed.
