First registered and pre delivery inspected by John Clark BMW in Aberdeen
on 14.11.1995. This a matching numbers M3 with original factory panels and
has never been bumped or subject to any insurance claims, its as pure
as they come. The service book is stamped entirely with BMW dealer stamps
and quality parts have always been used in the servicing process, the car to
date has had 5 previous keepers, however, has been owned by the same family
since 2001, covering very few miles in recent years, though stored with
sympathy. The service book details 9 dealer stamps inclusive of the important
running in service.
Nineties model M3s with this degree of originality are becoming a thing of the
past, I am delighted to be stocking such a rare car. Its a complete story
with full toolkit, leather wallet, two keys, remote central locking pad,
full size spare alloy with good tyre, BMW glove torch, first aid kit,
2 locking wheel keys, period Pioneer head unit with boot mounted CD changer,
warning triangle, fitted carpet mats, Haynes workshop manual, genuine BMW
touch in stick, MOT history, historic V5 logbooks, 2 keys, and a
comprehensive spread of servicing paperwork detailing all monies spent with
no gaps, inclusive of correspondence between owners and the dealer for
recalls.
All adding up to a no brainer investment Motorsport BMW for the serious
enthusiast or collector. Recently MOTD with no advisories or concerns, I
have driven the car at length and its absolutely superb in all areas.
Having just clicked over onto 63000 miles, this is surely one of the
lowest mileage examples in the country, moving forward this car will
only ever pile on value given the four-door model is hard to source
coupled with the winning combination of Red with Black leathers which
has an enduring appeal that transcends time.

The E36 M3 3.0 - "The Ultimate Driving Machine"
In used form this is a car that represents an achievable dream, a vehicle
that can mix it with a Porsche 911 yet still carry four in comfort. Its as
smooth and refined as you want it to be and then capable of genuinely startling
acceleration.
Even by today's standard its power allows the car to achieve sixty in under 6
seconds and onto a limited 155 mph. The mid-range torque remains extremely
impressive, the engine charging progressively harder and harder through and
beyond the seven thousand zone never letting up for air and without hesitation
or flatness, this M3 has been really cherished and the low miles are not
just evident in the way it looks, it drives properly too. I cannot recall
driving any other M3 that feels as box fresh as this. Rarely will you
encounter a straighter more honest E36 model, the engine is totally silent
from cold and when revved with the characteristic sewing machine sound.

This model was only built for just under two years and comes with the
desirable, tuneful and tough naturally aspirated single Vanos 3.0 M Power
straight 6 engine that produces an effortless and smooth 286 bhp. Thanks
to its high power and the cars light weight it is exceptionally quick yet
still refined. It looks relatively harmless, and when you step inside you
find a beautiful and comfortable vehicle. But once you start the engine,
you notice this is not a normal engine. When you keep your foot on the
accelerator the engine will revs up to 8,000 rpm, this is almost like a
racing car for the road.

This engine is known for its durability and efficiency as well as its
performance, being able to return 30mpg on a run and cover vast mileages
with ease. The later, more common 3.2 EVO cars were more powerful but can
suffer from mechanical issues due to their more complex dual Vanos valve
control system and notchy 6 speed gearbox.
The E36 M3 also happens to be hands-down one of the most exhilarating
cars ever made for the money. While the E30 was rawer, purer, and
the E46 which directly followed it was a lot more powerful, the E36
trounced all in terms of handling. Not as refined or advanced as modern
models, it is just as fun, if not more. Lighter, smaller and easier to
control, its slight power disadvantage also means that drivers can get
the most out of it at an accessible level.

Recent
A new MOT was done a few weeks ago and it passed with no advisories. A new
battery has been fitted alongside two new rear tyres. The fuel gauge was
erratic so a new fuel sender has been fitted also. Other recent work has
included two new top strut mounts and a brake caliper being replaced.

Alloys/Tyres
The Contour alloys are immaculate with no marks, inside and out with the
correct diamond cut finish. The tyres are all matching premium Goodyear
Eagles.

Summary
This model with low miles will look after its own residual, surely one for
the collector or serious enthusiast, this car needs a garage and dry sunny
drives. A rare opportunity. Many HD images should leave no doubt as to the
superb condition it’s in. UK delivery available, p/x considered.
