1998 BMW E36 M3 Sedan (M3/4/5) - Fully Sorted, Boston Green Metallic
This M3/4/5 was acquired by us a few years ago and is one of many I have owned, so it's a platform I know well. This means I'm able to identify and purchase good solid candidates from the countless used and abused examples in the market.
As the CARFAX shows it's had only a few owners, the last one being in RI who took great care of it. He was diligent in performing all the necessary maintenance items and handed over to us a well kept car. It only needed attention on a few items which I have listed bellow. In addition we performed a series of tasteful OEM+ upgrades to get a bit more excitement from it.
Since purchasing the M3 I've put just a few thousand miles on it and always kept it garaged.
For those of you not familiar with the 4-door variant, it is consider the best platform for the E36. The addition of a B pillar and smaller doors make it a better handing and stiffer chassis. That's why you often see it in motorsport.
In addition I'm a big fan of the smaller lighter doors with a proper frame, as the coupe version has an uncharacteristic BMW rattle on closing. These close with a solid feel and are much more manageable.
1998 was last and best production year since it received all the latest improvements and upgrades that were introduced over the nearly 10 year run, including the more powerful S52 engine.
Like all the cars we sell, this M3 is fully sorted out, meaning we've taken care of all the gremlins and potential issues that may arise. The E36 is a super reliable platform and the US spec S52 engine is far less finicky and easier to maintain the European variant. It has also proven itself over time to be the better engine.
If you’ve never experienced an E36 M3 you will be pleasantly surprised. Although it doesn't have the crazy power ratings of the new cars it out performs them, hands down, with regards to steering, road feel, tracking, responsiveness and enthusiasm.
There is no better M3 in my opinion and I've nearly all of them.
