BMW re-introduced the M3 to the North American market via the six-cylinder E36-platform variant for the 1995 model. The M3 was a true four-seater production car that was devastatingly quick with crisp handling.

This example was produced in April of 1996, the first year of the venerable 3.2-liter S52 inline-six cylinder engine became standard equipment. The powerplant offered 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, an increase from the previous 3-liter's 255lb-ft.

This car has been given a number of upgrades including four-wheel coilover suspension with adjustable ride height, a stainless-steel cat-back exhaust system, 18-inch AC Schnitzer wheels, and a K&N air filter. The car is a sunroof-equipped example.

In 2013, the car was offered for sale at the Bonhams Auction in Scottsdale Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $7,000 - $10,000 but was unable to find a buyer willing to satisfy its reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
