BMW M3 E36: Buying guide and review (1992-1998)

BMW M3 E36: Buying guide and review (1992-1998) Classic and Performance Car
BMW M3 E36 BMW M3 E36 BMW M3 E36 BMW M3 E36
The second generation BMW M3 was the equivalent of a slightly difficult follow-up to a brilliant breakthrough album. With the E30 M3 having received praise from all quarters for its dynamic abilities as well as motorsport success, its larger more luxuriously positioned replacement was always going to have its work cut out to convince buyers that it too shared the same sporting genes.
 
Released in 1992 with a 282bhp straight six under its bonnet, the new M3 was a different beast. Safety regulations and the continuous drive to move upmarket meant that the new car was heavier and more luxurious than its predecessor. It was also considerably more powerful, and significant work on the suspension turned it into one of the best handling sports cars of its generation.
 
Straight line performance was now approaching junior supercar levels and continuous improvements to engines and chassis as well as the introduction of more body styles ensured that the E36 M3 remained popular throughout production. While not as coveted as some of the other M3s from the past, these cars are rising in popularity and there is little doubt that well looked after examples will follow in the footsteps of the highly collectable E30 M3.
 
Which one to buy?
 
The E36 M3 was initially available in coupe form, with convertible and saloon body styles following soon after. Early models had five-speed gearboxes and came with a 3.0-litre 282bhp engine. Facelift models introduced at the end of 1995 brought in a larger 3.2-litre 316bhp engine and the option of a six-speed manual or SMG sequential manual gearbox. Being a first generation unit, the SMG can be jerky for town use, and the manual versions are generally more preferable from a reliability and usability point of view.
 
US-spec cars were detuned versions of their European counterparts, with a 243bhp 3-litre engine and the option of an automatic gearbox.
 
The manual coupes, especially in face lifted 3.2-litre Evo form are the ones to have, and second hand values reflect this. The rare saloons do add an extra level of practicality, and the convertibles are great for sunny days. however the added complexity of the folding roof mechanism can add to the running costs. Be very wary of abused or overly modified cars as restoring them can be an expensive proposition.

Common problems
 
• There are a huge number of specialists that specialise in M3s, with parts and spares are readily available. Certain M specific trim items and smaller parts may require a bit of searching for, and can be very expensive.

• Engines can tick at idle and this is normal, however a grumbly, rough sound may indicate Vanos issues. This is sadly not uncommon, especially if frequent oil services have not been adhered to. Leaking solenoid seals are generally the culprit with Vanos units, and can be replaced cost effectively at a specialist.

• Rear shock mounts and trailing arm bushes wear out and can be diagnosed by a wallowy or unstable rear end through mid- to high-speed corners. Mounts are easy to replace however the trailing arm bushes require specialised tools to fit.

• If the steering has a lot of play, and noises can be heard when turning at low speeds, the lower control arm bushes may require replacing.

• The cooling system is a known problem area and water pumps tend to require replacement every 60,000miles. Coolant expansion tanks can also rupture so it is best to get the system pressure tested.

• Manual gearboxes can suffer from worn second gear synchros while SMG ‘boxes will pop out of gear if the hydraulic fluid levels are too low. Hydraulic clutch pipes tend to expand leading to delayed clutch action, replacement pipes are easy to source.

• Original exhaust systems are very expensive OEM items and most cars will have had aftermarket items fitted.

• Rust tends not to be a major issue however water leaking past the boot seals can collect in the spare wheel well and this combined with leaking acid from the boot mounted battery can badly corrode this area.
 
Model history

Summary and prices
 
Pristine early coupes and GTs command the highest prices with some trading for up to £25,000. This is the exception rather than the rule and useable well maintained examples range between £5000 and £7000. 
A fully documented service history is essential though, as these cars tend to lead harder lives than most. One of the best handling cars of the ‘90s with the now legendary straight-six engines, the E36 M3 added luxury and practicality into the mix which was to become the way for M cars that followed. Prices are about as low as they will get for these underrated cars and if you get the right one you may even have an appreciating classic in the years to come.

EXTERIOR Chosen by BMW as the promotional launch colour for the E46 M3, this phenomenal example is finished in Phoenix Yellow Metallic (Code 445). The spectacular vibrant finish is flawless with the original paintwork entirely commensurate with 31,509 miles and cherished enthusiast ownership. Hyper-fussy meticulous scrutiny will find nothing other than the tiniest of markings to the driver’s door handle. All trim sections and discreet BMW M badging are in excellent condition and the front screen still has the BMW airbag warning sticker attached. The black fabric hood is in excellent condition and operates perfectly. All wheel arch apertures and underside are beautifully clean. A fantastic BMW M Car, one of the best in existence. INTERIOR Soft luxurious Nappa leather in Kiwi, (Code N50V), with Black interior trim is the perfect combination for the vivacious exterior colour scheme.

The factory optional SMG Drivelogic system offers a hugely diverse range of settings to suit the driver’s mood delivering everything from the fully automatic relaxed and smooth to the phenomenally quick manual gearchanges. In maximum Race mode, rocker switches on the steering wheel allow shifting in less than 80 milliseconds with power flow interrupted for less than 150 milliseconds. True supercar credentials. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Expensive factory optional 19in BMW M light alloy wheels in double-spoke styling 67 are polished and forged and remain in amazing condition with absolutely no lacquer peel, damage or scratches. Matching branded Kumho Ecsta SPT measuring 225/40 ZR19 and 255/35 ZR19 front and rear respectively have masses of tread remaining. The high-performance braking system featuring compound discs brakes safely masters the staggering power and is everything you would expect of this ultimate driving machine.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Standard BMW light-alloy double spoke wheels have been refurbished and Continental Contisport Contact tyres measuring 225/45 ZR18 and 255/40 ZR18 front and rear respectively have excellent tread remaining and are the correct type made specifically for the car with the M3 logo on the side.

A comprehensive service history highlights 10 visits to the supplying dealer followed by Independent BMW Specialist Ruellan`s Garage. A stamped service book, print out from BMW and invoices from Ruellan’s Garage help document servicing. An Inspection 1 service was carried in November 2017 at 64,176 miles and the Condition Based Servicing, (CBS), indicator states an oil service is not due for a further 11,500 miles. The current custodian Mr Jan Holloway has owned a number of BMW models and has just purchased another extremely low mileage E46 M3 in Phoenix Yellow to replace this pride and joy. The BMW leather wallet with all handbooks and the Sales Executives business card is included along with two keys. A fabulous opportunity for enjoyable, good looking E46 M3 ownership.
