Since my 325i bit the dust at the hands of a careless minivan, I've had to search for a new car.

I've found two that I like and I was wondering what the main differences were between them and which would be the better buy. The links below go to a white 1995 M3 and a silver 1996 M3.

I personally more partial to the silver '96 due to the fact that:
A - It's newer (yeah, only a year...)
B - Not white (my 325i was white and was a bitch to keep clean and shiny.)

1995 M3

1996 M3

Also, not comments about the pricing. If I do decide to buy, I won't have to pay for it. Insurance is covering it.

I would agree go with the 96. the 3.2 is great! mine has that engine. white is harder to keep clean. n

good luck
