I believe that it was the later 99's that they put it in or maybe the euros. Every 95-98 that I have checked out has the 5 speed. The 6 gear would be nice for above 80 mph.

I've just bought an Euro spec M3 which has a 6-speed gearbox. It's a '96 M3 (321HP)

Evo?
There are no E36 we in europe call evo?

All 96 and up euro M3's are 6-speed.

93-95 3.0liter 286hp has a 5speed.

You don't call those evo's? The eurospec 1996 m3's and up - the 3.2L one with the 321HP (S52?) and not the S50's or US M50/52 - well, those are evo's. Maybe it's an american thing? Huh? I don't know. I just thought that those 96+ eurospec's where m3 evo's. I could be wrong.


EDIT: I thuoght I was hallucinating, and did a search for m3 3vo on google, and it does come up. Hmm... I only looked briefly though. What is the reason for this term?

We call 93-95 M3's, M3's. And 96+ M3's, M3's :P
We usually separate them by saying M3 3.0 or M3 3.2.

All euro spec M3's have S50 engines.
The S50B30 you got is pretty different and are officially called S50B30US. The S52B32 is a US only engine. We never got an M-engine based on the M52.

I think the evo thing started with the E30 M3's. From the beginning they had 192hp or something, then in 89 or 90 they got 215hp. They are sometimes called evo or evo2. Then there was the sport evolution (evo3).

The evoX thing was never official from BMW I think. And maybe it caught on to the E36's. No one in Sweden uses it though.

Thanks for that lesson. I used the M50/52 designation, because as far as I know, the S52##US thingy designation you were using - I wasn't familiar with that. Thanks! I learn more and grow STRONGER MWA HA HA HA
