    It's perfect. Did you graft e46 fenders on there?

    Bought my sedan in '05 so 13 years. It's' probably been out of commission for 1/3 of that time ... Owned 4 other e36s but held on to this one.

    I've technically owned my current e36 m3 for a little over a year, but I've owned several e36 m3's since 2001. The best M3 BMW has made to date.

    Thanks, yes I did that after unfortunately hit a dog. Since the car had to go to the paint shop,I decided to go with E46 fender at the same time.

    I remember seeing your car at Bimmerfest East back in the days,that event in 2010-2012 was so cool with all the modded E36 M3!

    I've had my badboy since the day I picked her up on Dec 31, 1996.

    Car looks awesome, I loved it when it was stanced out but this look is definitely better. Sorry a dog had to sacrifice itself for you to graft those fenders but it turned out great!

    I bought my M3 in late August 2001. It was just coming off a lease, with 18k mi. It now has about 65k on the clock.

    Here are some pics from over the years...

    Ofter hear that no one really loves the E36.

    I took possession of a 325is in 2002.

    16 years later, it's still my favorite.
