Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1997 BMW E36 M3 Euro/ROW
six-speed coupe. This M3 was recently imported from Japan and is a
very nice example with 114,000 kilometers (70,000 miles). It is
finished in Dakar Yellow over black leather Vaders. It remains in
mostly stock and unmolested condition - an aftermarket head unit
and exhaust are the only observed modifications.
Obviously what makes this car so desirable is the S50B32 engine and
six-speed manual transmission - something we never got in the North
American market, and good for an additional 80 horsepower over a
US-spec E36 M3. Other subtle but unique differences on this
Japanese-market E36 include factory wood trim on the upper door
panels, keys with integrated keyless entry, glass headlights with
height adjustment switch, clear corner lights and the inclusion of
a warning triangle and first aid kit.
Factory 17-inch Style 39 wheels are wearing matching Falken tires
with good tread remaining. Condition overall is very good; it is
obvious that this example has been well cared for and garaged
throughout its life. We believe the Dakar Yellow paint to be
original and the finish is excellent over a damage- and
corrosion-free body. Exterior rubbers and trim are also excellent.
The interior shows only light wear and the leather seating surfaces
This M3 runs and drives great; it pulls noticeably harder than a US
S52-powered example. An extensively stamped service book (in
Japanese), both keys, books, tools and matching spare are included.
Late (9/97) production. Clear Georgia title and import
documentation. This M3 is located in our Savannah facility. Only
recently eligible for import, there are very few Euro-spec late E36
M3s in the US. For more information about this 1997 BMW E36 M3
