Our 1997 BMW M3 features an iconic Estoril Blue Metallic exterior paint combined with a black leather interior. It’s a great example of what makes BMW the “ultimate driving machine” and represents a historically significant model for the company.

Exterior

Body

All body panels are original -the car was not involved in any accidents. No panel gaps or issues with the car’s body. It’s in a very clean aesthetic state with only a few blemishes all around.

Paint

The paint is mostly originally with the exception of the right (passenger) side which has some repaints – blending for a scratch.

Wheels

Its 17” BMW Motorsport wheels are in excellent shape with no curb rash on all 4 sides. We think they look incredible on the E36 M3.

Mechanical

Engine

Unfortunately, North American-spec E36 M3s were notoriously underpowered. Thankfully, this particular M3 was professionally tuned and modified to unleash the car’s true potential.

An RMS Stage 2 Supercharger kit was installed, bringing the car’s total power output to 271 HP at the wheels (see dyno sheet above). A lot of maintenance was done on the car to ensure it remains thrilling and reliable for years to come.

Transmission

It features a 5-speed manual transmission with short, close gear changes.If you’ve driven a manual BMW M model before, you already know what to expect.

Tires & Brakes

It’s currently sitting on Continental ContiProContac tires (225/45 R17) that are almost brand new. The car’s brakes were also recently changed – almost new.

Ownership History

This M3 has only had 2 previous owners in its lifetime. Its first owner took possession of the car on November 1st 1996 in New Brunswick and enjoyed it until he sold it to his son’s best friend in 2010. It spent its entire life in New Brunswick between these 2 gentlemen.
