i was wondering what were the differences with the 95-96 M3's and the 97-98 M3's and if they came with and limited slip differentials at all? and what would you recommend i would get and the good range in price and mileage?.

hey when you find it, post back here. I'd like to know too.

Hard to search for the positives and negatives on these year M3's. If anyone has any information, do share.

Defintely a 95. It's OBD 1 so it's much more responsive to mods. OBD 1 is the shit man.

BaLLZacK has a little shameless behaviour in the past
95 3.0L 240hp OBD1 better breather at High Rpms
96-99 3.2L 240hp OBD2 better low end torque and I think the limited slip is better although both cars did have limited slip differentials.
Mods are now available for both OBD1 and 2 go with the best least abused m3 you can find, newer onestend to be less abused. I went with OBD2 as the breathing problem at high rpms can be fixed (about $700) and it was the M3 that I wanted(the color and 4 doors).

OBDII steals HP so you can't get as much from mods

I was planning on a 328is but settled on a 325is because the mods are easier to make power from.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

They all have LSD's. If you want to modify the car, the 95 would be better. Other than that the 97-99 has a bit more agressive nose piece. Also the 96-99 has a slightly better ssuspension includign camber and someone above mentioned that it might have a better LSD.

If you are looking into modifying this cra mroe than justa few bolt on's then the 95 would suffice. If you don't care that you can't take advantage of every modificationt hen the 96+ would be better. You can still buy the 96+ and be able to convert it to an OBDI system if int he future you change your mind..

Good Luck
