That's a disgusting colour for a wonderful car. It reminds me of urine, sadly.

there used to be a purple E36 M3 Sedan in Delhi a few years back with grey leather, it was imported from the UK, fully loaded.

Anyone got a clue on where that car is or has it been spotted anywhere?

Spotted this at the Marriott. A Tamil Nadu registered E46 M3 with a flat tyre (looked more like a burst tyre).

No Gemballa that is a genuine E36 M3. I've sat in it & checked the engine bay too & it has all the usual tell-tales like the illuminated rev-counter, m-power engine etc. Only problem is that it has an after-market Body Kit, Alloys & paint job.

I think Autopsyche worked on that car, so he's pretty certain whether or not it's genuine...so I guess I'll take his word, even though it appears a little tacky.

No need to be sorry & yes I've been in a few M3's. This one had the correct engine along with the cam covers saying Mpower, correct Gearknob, steering, Display etc. And like I said earlier its different looks are due to After market Bodykit, Wheels, Suspension etc.

This is somewhat off-topic, but thought I'd post it here instead of creating a new thread.

Spotted this beauty in a Kolkata shopping mall car park ... It had the CSL badge in the rear.

Well it's an E30 and since the arches are not flared I'm guessing it's just a normal 3-series with an M-badge secondly, the car seems to be a four-door & AFAIK there were no four-door M3's in this generation. Also no CSL's were produced during this generation. Looks like the guy's even put a Shark fin aerial on the roof!!!
