Most people on here are going to say it's amazing or beautiful just because it's an E36 no matter what the color.

Looks like a very clean M3. Few of us would have guessed this a factory color. While the color isn't for everyone the buyer will enjoy having 1/3 ever factory produced M3. I can't feel that unique in my M2C LBB. I'm trying to imagine this car driving up along side and what my thoughts would be. Yuk or yea? Thanks for sharing photos of this car.

In the 90's this was a very cool color, trends evolve over time.

It is actually 1 of 2 E36 M3s. The other one is a 3.2l version, it was sold in Germany. Has a black interior with mint green stitching.
