These ar not the greatest of pictures coz i dont have them with me currently. The pictures are not too clear coz i took them with a digital camera as i dont have access to a scanner. But you can zoom into it as much as you need.

Dayyyyyyyyyummmmm. That "BMW M POWER" logo on the engine cover has done it for me. Owning this car for a while...and then selling her will leave you with that feeling when you just cannot get over that really really hot-ex! Even if the separation was your choice.

Sleepless nights Sam?

I dont keep any of the pics, these are the pics are got sent down from my bro. Its just really sad. Well this is a 214kW version thats 287bHp. Well i had it for just under a year, until I decided to sell it and continue studyin, MBBS. It wasnt the best day for me when it left. I had plans... i had many plans for her.
There is a guy in South Africa Rob Green,who specialises in modifying M3's. Well he supercharges M3's.
I was only interested in the muffler package he had tho, which would push my 214 kW to 236kW(317bHp). I personally met him and disscussed these plans, but well it didnt happen. It would cost around 7000 rands which is around 50 000 rupees. He has progressive stages, check out the website www.rgmotorsport.com. I sold the car for just over 8 lacs and got a E280 in its place for my parents to drive.:(

I can understand what you must have gone through when you had to let go of her. If you would have kept her and the mods you mentioned, she would have turned into a real beast.

Beast is not the word, I would be able to stand next to a E46 M3 and pull away from him in all gears, and he just wouldnt know why he paid 3 times the price for a car which doesnt even beat the old one. I do prefer the look of the E36, its more racier and aggressive.
