Thinking About Buying E36 M3

As soon as I sell the Evo I will be picking up a car that costs the fraction of the price of the Evo. Which means I will have a lot of money to spend on mods...

My 2 main choices as of right now are
Black 1995 E36 M3 112k miles
or a
10 sec LS1 T/A or Camaro

I found a clean 95 M3 for $6gs around my area.... 112k miles with white vador seats... Its very clean and for the price I feel like I shouldn't pass this up....

I'm also in the process of selling the Evo to a local dealer... So I will have a new weekend car as soon as it sells....

So Fanatics can you guys posts pics of what your dream E36 M3 looks like...

Or what mods you would do to an E36 if you ever bought one...


P.S. I want to have one of the cleanest E36 M3's around, not to crazy and not to plain.... But I want you guys to point me to the right direction...

My Ride: M3
M3 is a raw machine. I kind of like just a clean, jet black one. Some BBS wheels, lowered a little, tinted windows. Stealth status.

I was in love with E36 M3's ever since my older cousin bought one back in the 90's... Prob one of the cleanest E36 I've ever seen....

It was black, nice drop, 35% tints, front splitter, and gt3 ssr rims....

I was originally going to buy one back before I got the Evo but I was to into performance and got the Evo.... In all honestly I knew I will own one in my life time....

Well that was back in the day when ignorance ran a muck. There is no real advantage to OBDI other than ease of tuning. Once Jim gets his **** together and releases Shark Edit, that will no longer be an issue.

My Evo runs 11s already so if I get the E36 M3 I wont be to worried about speed until I put a turbo in it...

Afghanscarface has a nice E36 M but I'm planing on going a little crazy with mine if I get it...

Black is hard to keep clean but so is white, especially here in Chicago. But black is just black, the first couple of hours on a Sunday morning when you wash and wax it and go for a ride, it just looks amazing
