They sure look like them!! Even if they are not, they look like pretty good replicas. Also, this particular 3 was very very well maintained.

Definitely not Alpina wheels. Lovely E30. It could use some BMW wheels though.

Be careful with the terms you use,Cyrus.

A flat engine is a "boxer" engine aka horizontally opposed engine.
Subaru Impreza and the Porsche Carreras come with this type of engine.

AFAIK, BMW 3 series came with only an inline(or)straight six engine.

Cyrus if i am not mistaken the Blue E36 with the M3 badge and kit is the Narang car that stood at the Ambassador hotel. it is a 316i and had been painted in the Redbull colour scheme for a while. if it is the same car Narang n me used to race on marine drive after a night out at flavours. i think it has been sold now and replaced by the Eclass.

Thank you Maverick. this is 318i is a treat to watch. very well kept and clean car.
my friend used to have a 316i when we were in school. the car got sold and the person who bought it had an older 3 series coupe. years later i did manage to see the car when it was on sale again by then the older coupe was in ruins but fortunately the 316i was in prestine condition. now i dont seem to know where the coupe dissapeared.
