Looking at buying an M3. The ones that are in my general price range are from 95 - 97. So here it is...

1995 M3 has OBD-I and a 3.0L motor.

1996 M3 has OBD-II and a 3.2L motor.

I guess the real questions are which will give me less overall trouble and which could be tweaked into producing more power from modifications?

I think the general consensus on these boards is that the OBDI motor is much more amicable to modification.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

Yes, yes the OBDI is much more tolerant to engine modifications.


If you do go witht he OBDII, take a little look at the 97+. It has the slightly mroe agressive front grill which really makes it look better, in my opinion.
